Design my bow!

Apparently, my descriptive ability only goes so far as food, so I'm outsourcing the customisation of my bow. 

50cr plus gratis if you make a bow so sexy I jizz in my pants and/or vomit rainbows (photographic proof not included) 

My character is Nereian but it doesn't necessarily have to be oceanic themed. :) I'm not including a list of favoured materials cause I'm not gonna lock you down with the impression that it has to include those things. Just try making something you'd think I'd like. :)

    a Nerai bow of clear glass

    A glass bow lies here, hippocampi stretching across its limbs.

    The fish tails of hippocampi stretch across the either limb of the bow, their heads and forelimbs stretching towards the centre. Water inside the glass provides a measure of steadiness for the wielder, filling a third of the glass. Etched into the grip, various marks allow for a firm grip for the one this weapon was crafted for. The string of the bow is twined with an exotic turquoise material, glimmering with mystic sheen.

    ^I wrote this in 5 mins and I am not happy with it, but I feel it is a cool theme for a Nerai bow. Maybe a thesaurus and some sentence shift would make me happy but typing on my phone is hard.

    a sea-scoured bow of bleached driftwood

    Abandoned, a driftwood bow lies here, its ornate limbs visibly weathered.

    Masterfully crafted to remarkable precision, this sizeable bow bears the signs of Triton artisanry, its bleached limbs spiralling tightly unto wicked points at its very tips. A grand, elaborate carving trails about the weapon's spine, depicting the tempestuous fury of the ocean in miniature. The pale limbs of the bow are of a wood now indistinguishable, its surface scoured clean by the motion of the wine-dark depths to a palpable softness. A thin varnish imbued with sargassum-tinted pigment loans an ochre tan to the sea-wrought pallor, starkly contrasted by errant whorls of a deep, earthy hue - the memory of the limb's mighty branches. A length of twisted merrowskin stretches taut from the tips of the the twin maelstroms, flitting with a haphazard nacre gleam in the ambient light.


    I'm not hugely sure about the shortdesc, and the examined turned out way wordier than I thought even after trimming it down a fair bit.

    I also don't know if Tritons make or use bows, so lots of liberty being taken with that. It was fun to write, though. Shouldn't look too out of place in the baldric of a Nerai, I'd hope.

    A Neroes bow jizzes in sexily from the $DIR.

    A Neroes bow lies here dead in a pool of its own rainbow vomit.

    After the photo in player pics I'm disappointed this is not a thread about @Aerek's tie

    Aw damn, why didn't I think of that? Salvaged barrel limb for a bow is genius.
