If it is too expensive maybe you could make one yourself.

I think it costs around 220 USD. It depends on the currency I guess.

Hi, I would like to make his soul society bow. could anyone give me any tips on what materials to use? Iv never used foam before so i dont know how rigid it is, do you think it would be suitable? or would wood be better? im worried about it being too heavy you see, im small and weak, lol.

bows are easy to make, and the b est part is you can construct a functional one with my help. All you need to do is find a fresh sapling of the right width and chop it down. Next you strip and cut ti down until it is completely smooth. Now fill a bath tub and tie something to the wood so that it will sink. Leave it submerged for a few days until it is pliable, then you apply stress by stacking two cinder blocks, placing the bows middle on them, so that it's balanced like a see-saw, and hang an additional cinder block from each end. You can vary the middle stack depending on how deep you would like to curve the bow, but I find two or three cinder blocks are best. After a day or two of stressing, it should be completely bent. If not, soak it and try again, but increase the middle stack and make sure the pressure is equal on both ends.

Only one of Ishida's bows is solid like that, the rest as glowing blue since they are spirit energy, just not as dense. See:

If you check the Anti-sora tutorial under the props checklist you'll find a good source for purchasing blue lighting materials like that at a cheap price. It's under the eyes and smoke section of the Anti-sora tutorial. That bow tutorial I gave was obviously only for a solid bow, and it's a bit of a stretch for some people who dislike the idea of chopping down a sapling.

I want the bow he used with his sanrei glove. Yeah I can't use trees and stuff. I'm hoping I can go somewhere like office depot or staples to buy what I need because I'm not around a whole lot of resources.

office depot and staples carry business supplies.. you wont find what you need to make for cosplay there

you could always go to a thrift store or something and look for a bow and just add on stuff..

I agree with benihime! It's easier to add in details than make your own bow.<<my opinion
It also helps to focus your attention on the details instead of the bow making. Just keep in mind when adding details that it should also be able to handle the tension of being stretched and the details should not hinder the bow ^ ^ from flexing.
