Archers/Flute Playing Characters

I know two completly different topics but it'd be a waste to post two different threads. Anyway, recently i started archery (no hunting sport only) and i want to find a character besides Kagome or Kikyo to show my love for it through cosplaying (i know sounds kinda weird.. don't know how else to explain it...^^')

As for the flute thing, i played flute years ago and i honestly can't think of anyone that plays it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thanks in advance. ^^

EDIT: I forgot to mention that i'm open to any suggestion male or female. Thanks again! ^^

Well Link from legend of zelda has a bow, try looking at a bunch of video games because usually there is the different characters with different fighting styles (sword, axe, magic, archer etc..) Others I can think of are:

Natalia -Tales of the Abyss
Yukari- Persona 3
sorry i cant come up with more DX As for flute players all I can think of is Azuma from La Corda Doro

This is an old Anime, but Pharangese in Legend of Arislan is an archer:
And plays a flute-like instrument:

Are you only looking for female characters? Because Trowa in Gundam Wing was the first flute player I thought of :3
And also Amiboshi in Fushigi Yuugi:

Besides ones already mentioned, well. There are the Archer class characters from the Disgaea/Nippon-Ichi games. Also, MOMO (Xenosaga) uses a bow. Same with Fran from Final Fantasy XII.

As for flute... Closest thing that comes to mind right now is Peruru and Pupulan from the third Sailor Moon movie, Black Dream Hole, but its a bit of a stretch.
Upcoming Cosplays:

Billy Hatcher (Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg) - 45%
Wasp (Avengers: EMH!) - 20%
Yorda (ICO) - 10%
Yuuka (Touhou Project) - 65%

Ragnarok online has both female and male versions of the archer classes.

Archer, Hunter, Sniper, and Ranger.

Rangers from Final fantasy use bows, and uhh....I believe bards from final fantasy use flutes.

Alot of elf-like characters use bows as well :]

Fran from Final Fantasy 12 uses bows initially.
2015 Convention plans:
Megacon 2015
Metrocon 2015
NYCC 2015

Planned cosplays: Wiccan- young avengers
Klarion Bleak the Witch Boy

Nagisa from Clamp School Detectives plays flute, and Suoh from the same thing does archery.
In the manga she's blonde:
(Suoh is the blue haired kid).
It's a pretty old anime, so... it was really hard to find pictures, but since those two are a romantic couple, someone made a fan video with the two of them, hahaha. So here you can see them fluting/doing archery.

Also, Doumeki from XXXHolic does archery.

I can't think of any not-mentioned-already flutists, buuut, there's one archer (well, not exclusive, but he does use a bow) that hasn't been mentioend yet- Wander from Shadow of the Colossus.
This photo kinda sucks, but it's the only one I could find quickly that had him with a bow.

(also, kudos on the archery! One of my favourite sports since 2003. ^_^)

For archers, I can only think of Legolas from Lord of the Rings. For flutes, first thing that popped into my head was The Magic Flute by Mozart.

My apologies since it is not too many : /

(I'm an archer too, so that is pretty snazzy!)
