Thanks for the advice (even though I didn’t ask for it), but I definitely have my posing down. That picture was just snapped really quick before I drove off to a convention. Also, I’m really not a noob to convention policies. I’m not going to create a bow that can shoot. If I didn’t know about policies or wasn’t worried about hurting someone with a real bow, I would’ve went the easy route and bought a real bow from Walmart and modded it to look like a Nightingale Bow. The bow weighs 12 pounds. I’d like to see you stand in one spot in a really awkward position holding a 5 foot high 12 pound item with a straight arm for at least 30 seconds to 1 minute at a time for everyone to snap their photos. It’s fantasy. I used to do archery. I’m not really worried about looking like a professional archer. Thanks for all the advice.
