I am revamping my 8 year old Kagome cosplay for a group cosplay my friends want to do. I'm going to go back a make her backpack which won't be an issue but it's her bow that I'm a little stumped on. The "easiest" way would be getting a toy bow and making alterations but I know the paint will flake off and I rather make the whole thing from scratch, wood if I can find the right curved piece. I was thinking trying to find a piece of a frame? I'm not sure.... Just don't know how to approach this.
The other thing is that I'm also making my friend the Baboon Naraku outfit for my friend. The pelt its self will not be the issue, it's the mask that I'm brain storming on. I'm not sure if I could make a wire frame and cover it with material, shape craft foam, use the combination of the two, or do something completely different.
Any tips or advise would be wonderful
