View Full Version : Kikyo (Bow and arrow, shikon no tama)

Okay, I'm trying to get the accessories down for this costume.
1.) How would I pull off the bow and arrows?
2.) For the Shikon no Tama, how could I string moonstone chips onto a necklace and still keep a small distance between each one?

1) For the bow and arrow you can use willow wood (from a weeping willow tree) Or you could use flexible plastic. At the top and bottom of whatever you use cut thin slits. Then get string and tie a knot at one end and put string into the slit. Then bend the wood/plastic and see where you need to put the other knot in the string. Then make the other knot and put it into the slit. You might want to glue or stop up the openings of the slits so the string does not come out. For the arrows just take sticks. Get clay and make them into the shape of arrow heads. If you put a hole in the bottom of them before you bake the clay it will be easyier to attach to the sticks. Then at the other end of the stick glue feathers. If you want it to look more realistic you should cut the feather in half but leave the middle part and one side of the feather and then glue the middle part to the stick.
2) again you could make knots on either side of the moonstone chips to keep them in place. There are also clear plastic beads that you could put in between them.

Ebay carries that necklace all the time. I swear if you look you'll find at least three people selling. Although, I think it would be fun to see if you could improve on their designs, but if you're needing it right away then it's always an option!
