I know, what a poser, you might say. That I admit. When my colleagues and I tried our hands at archery, the Green Arrow outfit (unsurprisingly) came to mind. Katniss was obviously for the girls and although there's also Legolas and Hawkeye, Oliver Queen was at the top of my mind.
Of course I never intended to go full regalia because that would be crazy and Halloween is still a month away. I just wanted to casually sport something from my daily wear that's inspired by the character. Yup, like a green hoodie.
I don't have a plain one so I settled for my treasured Slytherin hoodie. Yeah, the print is so prominent it's distracting. And Quidditch! Since when did Hogwarts offer archery? Haha!
Since it was a regular work day, I wore normal office pants. In gray because I just wanted something other than black. But I wore silver shoes for crying out loud! I would probably have worn boots if it were a Friday; the ones I have don't work too well with office pants.
So was this archer from Slytherin any good?
Practicing my aim. No arrow yet.
Okay, this is it.
Yes, I'm too near the target. Clearly it's just a photo op.
Horrendous first set! I don't know why but from hereon my arrows consistently appeared like they were fired from the left. So what's this, if I can do curveballs in Pokémon Go, I can do "curve arrows," too?
I thought the idea was to not hit the yellow part.
What I'm really good at: clowning around.
I think I prefer shooting spells from wands than arrows from bows.
Meanwhile in the local TV scene, there's show called Alyas Robin Hood that seems like a cheap copy of Arrow.
