Up for sale is Zelda's Light Bow from the Legend of Zelda series. This incredible prop was made by the talented Amethyst Angel (for those of you unfamiliar with her, she does incredible prop work and can be found here
). As much as I am in love with this amazing bow, plans have changed and I'm offering it up to someone else that would love to have an Amethyst Angel creation for their Zelda cosplay.
The bow has been made using wiremesh coated with epoxy putty. The surface of the bow has been painted with a pearlescent paint and sealed with acrylic varnish. The bow divides into two sections, connected at the center by means of a dowel and a PVC coupling. The bowstring is a length of shiny gold braid.
She coated the "glowing" yellow sections of the bow with a reflective vinyl. (The vinyl itself doesn't give off a glow, but when hit with a camera flash, it shines brightly, creating the glowing effect.)
The bow comes with an arrow made from foamcore coated with styrene and epoxy. The shaft is a dowel. (You should be able to slide the dowel into the golden coupling and glue the pieces together to make the whole arrow. It's just broken down into two pieces for easy shipping.)
This bow is HUGE! She made it so that it's accurate to her size, which is a height of 5'6". It's easily one of the more amazing props I've ever seen for a Zelda cosplay.
