A light-up bow and magical arrow from Empires & Puzzles!

Dec 24, 2022Crafting Projects8 comments

I always love to work with mobile game developers as many of their games often have amazingly designed heroes. I also always wanted to build a functional, light-up bow! So when Empires&Puzzles reached out to us to create something from their game, I took the chance and decided to make Athena’s bow! It not only has a really cool design, it also has LEDs – the perfect match to test my skills!

Hope you’ll enjoy the making of video! Please check out my Youtube channel for more tutorials, guides and fun crafting projects!

Aside of the bow, I’ve also made a light up magical arrow! I had this ideas already for years in mind and was waiting for just the right prop to try it out. This was basically just a plexiglas pipe filled an an LED strip and covered with foam. The light-up bow from Empires&Puzzles was just perfect for this job! And now, it’s awesome for a ton of other costumes as well! And the best: It was actually pretty simple to build!

Please check out my Basic LED Book or my Lights & Sounds Book if you want to try electronics out as well! They are incredible fun and I’m always super excited if I can add lights to a project!

  5. Do you have any recommendations for stores that specialize in fabric cosplay?

    • Fabric unfortunately is relatively hard to come by online so we always source them locally.
