    Here is a costume I put together for Dragon*Con 2012 from the forthcoming Arrow TV show on CW. Difficult to built a costume on a show that hasn't come out yet, but thankfully they had the suit on display at Comic Con this year and some people took some decent pictures of it.

    that is very nice. I was thinking of doing an Arrow one as well- what is the base jacket you are using? where did you get it? What matierial did you use for the top layer/hood? Once again VERY nice!!

    The green leather jacket and green leather pants were both lucky ebay finds. I kept scouring for a couple of months. The hood is made out of a hooded Robin Hood shirt, trimmed by the canvas from a Army surplus bag. The bow is was actually the most amount of work, to make it look screen accurate. Here is a good pic of the bow- Screenshot from the show.

    Looks fantastic.

    I've been looking at throwing one of these together myself. Have you got any tips on the types of boots, gloves and that weird cuff around the pants? Thanks!

    Be seeing you,

    Gloves are a pair of black shooting gloves like you'd use for a gun, the boots were a pair of tan army surplus boots that I dyed green, the cuff at the top of the boot is actually my bicep strap from my Smallville Green Arrow costume. Got lucky that it happened to fit and look the part.

    Hi,
    I love Smallville's version of Green Arrow, but now I love this interpretation of Green Arrow. I was wondering if you would share some information with a newbie?
    Basically, I was wondering if you'd be kind enough to share the exact name, brand and price of the items used to make this master piece?
    Thanks
    Aaron

    The bow is a Polaris 48" youth bow. They use a youth sized bow in the series. Mine isn't 100% screen accurate but I got pretty close.

    Did you paint the limbs black or did you buy it like that?

    I painted the limbs. It's actually a really dark green that I then slightly distressed. They were originally white with the Polaris logo on it.

    Have you used the bow for shooting anything, even targets? If so, how's it shoot?

    It's got a light pull on it, but it fires just fine.
