Female Characters:

If you prefer to cosplay lovely young girls, the following characters may be among your choices:

Kaname Madoka

Kaname Madoka is a kind-hearted girl in Puella Magi Madoka Magica. After turning into a magic girl, she became independent and confident. Her weapon is a golden longbow decorated with several rosebuds. When Madoka bends the bow, it will generate an arrow with a huge amount of energy. Either a single shoot or a continuous shoot is possible, sometimes she can make a magic circle for a wide range of attack. Sometimes there is a flame emitted from the bow.

Sinon

Sinon’s avatar in Sword Art Online 2 ALO is a cute Cat Sith with blue hair and icy eyes. She is a talented archer because cat’s vision is further than other races in ALO. A jade bow and arrow is one of the main weapons of her. She can shoot the enemies even before they cast the spell. “One shoot! One kill” is Sinon’s slogan. Wanna be a character with cat ears and an amazing bow and arrow? Sinon is absolutely a good choice.

Cute is not your cup of tea? How about a brave, bold, daring, courageous, stubborn, rebellious and headstrong girl?

Merida

Princess Merida is the by said girl who  does not fit the stereotypical princess role. She is an impetuous girl who wants to take control of her own destiny. Merida has honed her skill in archery, and is one of the most skilled archers ever seen. Cosplay as Merida, take the bow and arrows with you, ride on a horse and explore the world.

Kikyou (also spell as Kikyo)

Kikyou, one of the main roles in Inuyasha, is a good female psychic in warring state era. Kikyou has two famous arrows, one is “Hama Arrow” and the other is “Arrow of Seal”. Hama Arrow, which can powerfully penetrate through the enemies and purify the miasma, is used to break the magic. On the other side, Arrow of Seal doesn’t take the monsters’ lives but can seal them up.

Ashe
Ashe, the Frost Archer is one of the most popular characters in League of Legends. Her weapon is an ancient icy bow with an enchanted crystal arrow. The arrow is a linear and colliding skill shot. Ashe fires a giant arrow in a straight line. If it hits an enemy, it will deal magic damage and stun that champion for seconds. She concentrates on every target, fights for the unity of Friel Chesterton tribes and devotes herself to make it a powerful nation. Ashe is definitely a heroine with cool outfit and ability.

As an athletic English archaeologist-adventurer in the video game series Tomb Raider, Lara is fairly good at shooting. In the game, her bow and arrow can be upgraded to different types according to the player’s different grades, which include rope arrow, fire arrow, napalm arrow, explosive arrow, penetrating arrow, etc. This game has adapted into movies and animations by the same name.

DIY Sakura’s Feather from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle

This feather is essencial for your cosplay of Sakura from Tsubasa.

Tsubasa 7

 

Some backgroud info for the feather:

At the beginning of the series, Sakura grows wings from her back, which dissolve into magical feathers that are in fact pieces of her soul. These contain her memories since she was born, and if not retrieved, she will die without them.

Since these feathers represent her soul, these hold an enourmous amount of magical power. Each of them affect their surroundings differently. Whenever Mokona senses a feather, it goes “Meyko!” to alert the group.

 

Tsubasa

 

 

 

First, prepare the materials: paper, iron wire, scissors, tape or glue.

Second, cut the paper.

Tsubasa_2

 

In this way you’ll get two same pieces of diamond.

 

Third, put the iron wire between the two pieces of paper and fix with glue.

Tsubasa_3

 

 

 

 

Now you can draw the pattern on it. Actually you can draw it after you cut the pieces, but I prefer to do it now.

Tsubasa_4

 

You can see the pattern on Pic 1, mine may not be good enough, please google it.

 

Last step, cut it to be like a feather.

Tsubasa_5

 

Actually if you’re too lazy to cut the paper, you can simply get a feather and draw on it.

(PS: the iron wire should be sofr, not too thick.)

 

The completed feather~
