Here is a Green Arrow costume I put together for DragonCon 2012.. This was at in 2012, and was two months before the show aired. There were few reference photos available at the time. I built the suit out of off the shelf materials that I sourced. The bow was hand built based on a photo someone took of it at San Diego Comic Con, where it was on display a few months before Arrow premiered. I have another gallery of later pictures that are a second generation suit that I commissioned.
