J.R.R. Tolkien and his wife Edith Mary Tolkien Everyone had left some precious things of their own: flowers, jevellery, books, notes... even rings (that pink ball head is mine, did it my self and it hanged on my purse couple years until it found a new peaceful home in this cemetery).

Just a few photos from the day, I'm doing a proper photoshoot soon.
Also let me stress that the bow is a LARP bow, the draw weight is very low around 20lb. The bow itself is fibreglass so its very durable and drawing the bow back again take after take was not stressing the bow. The tip of the arrow is foam and the arrow shaft is a very light pine. She never drew the bow directly at the photographer but past them. We treated the bow with much caution, we are not stupid. We also carried a un-stringer with us so we could un-string it while traveling and if MCM security had a problem with it. The feather fletching will not slice her fingers if she slipped (even though she gripped the end of the arrow head tightly) the feathers I used were quill feathers and very soft.
