All Hawkeye cosplayers need a set of these in their quiver

With the popularity of Hawkeye –both the Clint Barton version, starring in his own stellar comic and various Avengers titles, and the Kate Bishop version, currently appearing in that same stellar comic and the snappy Young Avengers — it’s not surprising that Hawkeye cosplayers are taking aim at conventions around the world.

If you’re wanting to sport the gear of the younger, female Hawkeye, but aren’t sure where to get started, here’s a Tumblr by a devoted Kate Bishop cosplayer that should tell you everything you need to know. It’s appropriately titled “Gosh I Love Arrows,” and I think she goes above and beyond in the creation of a set of trick arrows based on David Aja’s illustrations from issue #3.

Now all you need is a quiver … which she provides details on as well.

Tres cool.

“Gosh, I love arrows’ is a line from the first Hawkeye mini-series! Awesome!!

And I know it’s more a Green Arrow thing, but if I were to cos-play as Hawkeye, I’d fashion a boxing-glove arrow. Just because.

Awesome! Now they just need one with Ant-Man on the tip.

How does Hawkeye know which arrow he’s pulling out when he reaches into his quiver?

Adam, sometimes it’s explained as the quiver is paired with a selector in his glove. But usually it’s not explained.
