As far as simple and easy tutorials go, this might just grab the first prize. To create the illusion of Robin Hood’s girlfriend with an arrow through the head, all you really need is a fake arrow tip, made of ELlimorph plastic or aluminium foil, some skin adhesive, tape and fake blood. That’s really all there is to it. It can be a bit tricky to get the arrow to stick so try to find some creative ways to make it stick. If all else fails you might want to try using a styrofoam kind of material for the arrow to keep the weight down.
If you have no clue about who Robin Hood is, you can ready up on this heroic outlaw from English folklore on Wikipedia. There you’ll learn the classic story of the man who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor.
