Cupid’s Bow

No, not that kind… (although naturally I appreciate the presentation value of my avatar Miss Bow’s cupid’s bow too!) 😉

Today, in honour of Valentine’s Day, I’d like to present some impressive ladies in archery-wear, complete with bows & arrows….

    • Thanks very much for your contributions! I’ve added several of them to the post.
      My original article definitely doesn’t attempt to be a complete representation of female archers in film – I’m sure there are loads more! It’s basically just a few of the ones I myself have seen and enjoyed. 🙂
