Need a Custom Bow and Arrow. Help?

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 30, 2013, 11:31 PM



Hey so I'm looking for anyone who makes customs bows and arrows.

I'm wanting this to be a long term project because I'll need to know how much it costs based on the crafter and then I'll need to save up a ton of cash obviously since it won't be cheap.

If anyone knows Hawkeye from The Avengers I'm looking to get his bow and arrow set.

HOWEVER I want it to be custom crafted, beautifully done and I want it to be functional as a real hunting bow even though I'm not a hunter. This means if altercations on the lights on the arrows or bow have to be made I can work with it, I just want it to be real and as close as possible to the real bow and arrow set.

I've been looking into archery for years anyway so it would be a great way to practice, of course just have to make sure everything is sturdy, I don't want anything to break in the middle of using it since I want it to last for years.

Anyone who /doesn't/ know, this is Hawkeye: www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=…

You can see the red light on his bow here: www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=…

I want it to be as realistic as possible as I said but I'm also looking to have it be possibly a little unique since it's going to be custom. I don't want it too dramatically different but adding a couple carved in intricate details or something wouldn't be terrible.

:bulletblue:If anyone knows anyone who crafts bows and arrows who I could get in contact with, or has any information on bow and arrow crafting in general, I'd be really grateful!

And this is a very serious project I'm not derping around about it at all, it's something I really have my sights set on. I plan on mounting the bow and arrow somewhere safe where people can awe over it, so I might also custom order a mount from the same person if they make mounts. ;____;

:bulletblue:ALSO even if you /don't/ know anyone or have information, anyone who spreads the word and gets it out there for me will get a free little character sketch or an adoptable from Skyrian or Coasts-of-Sverrir free. One only though I have lots of work as a college student. xD;

I've actually looked into this and have yet to find somebody in my price range who does satisfactory work. x3 I just need to save more, I suppose. I am also looking in to getting a Loki helmet that is actually accurate to the helmet and not like what I see cosplayers parading about in, these days x3 everything custom made is so expensive though.

I realize it's expensive and as said I'm willing to pay the price, I just need to know how much the person I'll be ordering from will be wanting so I can save up for it.

A Loki helmet that's actually accurate might be cool. xD

Kk I will! I've been searching a lot and unfortunately I'm not finding a lot of really well-crafted bows and arrows anywhere. Most of them are made with wood which is fine but not realistic for Hawkeye's Bow, or they're made with PVC pipes and I don't know how great or strong those are in accordance to working with archery materials.

Yay thank you! :'D Would you like an adoptable from ~Coasts-of-Sverrir or #Skyrian or would you like a small character sketch? (Honestly the Coasts-of-Sverrir thing might be the only time you get a pet from there since it's basically adopts for money only.)

/screeches
THEY'RE
ALL
SO
TEMPTING

Uhhh I know I can get an adoptable from CoS this time only, but honestly (and I hate to say it since the offer is so tempting) I think I'll stick with #Skyrian because I AM ADDICTED TO THOSE ADORABLE LITTLE THINGS HHHHNNNNNGGGG /slaps self
If it's a custom, I honestly don't have any ideas... I would really love to be surprised as long as it's a Skyrian. c:
And you're welcome by the way! c:

Well if you'd like you can give me a color palette from design-seeds and I can do that, or I can just surprise you as said, either way. |D

As for Skyrian, do you also want the /species/ to be Skyrian? I wasn't sure if that was what you were trying to say. ouo Because if you want like..a Vulpavis or Ventume or something I can do that too. xD I just can't do Whiptails for obvious reasons.
