I love to accessorize, so I've been looking into cute things for the violin. Besides shoulder rests (which sadly have very little variation outside of ones intended for children), I've been looking at bows! I've found several companies that make fiberglass ones in a variety of colors, but only one that makes bows with colored hair. (I think a company called P&H used to make them too, but no anymore)

 

Glasser has a series of customizable colored bows with colored bow hair. They're a bit pricey for a newbie, but still very cute. I've been looking at some clearance ones, but googling shows a few old mixed reviews of other regular Glasser bows. Has anyone used them or any other brand with colored bowhair?

 

What about other cute violin accessories?

Not sure of your tastes but this guy is definitely cute and functional.

I may have seen colored bows (hair) on Ebay.

 

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

That mouse is pretty cool for sure Oliver. Picachu, I believe that you can color white hair in the same way that one colors real hair. Can't imagine it being a problem. I coach a youth orchestra in Broward from time to time and one violinist has a bow with pink hair. Other than that and black hair I haven't really seen any other colors.
