The Royal Guard’s Bow as seen in the video game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
This is a functional bow which shoots arrows.
Got myself a pvc pipe (2 cm in diameter, 130 cm length) for the bow base and slowly heated it so I could bend the pipe.
Prior to covering the pipe with all the foam bits I tested if it could shoot arrows. Made a string nock on both limb tips (oy, archery lingo!) with a little help of 2 aluminum strips and glued them down with cosplayflex and sculpted the string nock (check the last picture, 6th row).
As soon as I made a couple of test shots I was satisfied enough to make the patterns for the foam covers.
Those patterns can be found in my store, btw! See the right column.
The contact glue I work with is called Kövulfix and can be found online on amazon as well:
