Hello readers! I want to take a quick moment to thank you for taking the time to read my posts! This is now my third post so if you haven’t read those yet, go take a look! Also please take some time and read my fellow bloggers posts as well! There’s a lot of really cool stuff to read about so go take a look! Lastly, at the very bottom of the page, there is a “leave a response” box. Many of the bloggers, myself included, ask a question within our post so feel free to leave a response!! I personally feel like people actually appreciate my posts and it gives me a way to connect with you, the reader. So for this post, please let me know what you would like me to report on more! Now lets get into this weeks post.
Once again I fell into the very deep hole that is TikTok and came across another amazing artist named Trace Wilson. Trace is an artist with a bionic arm. On his TikTok (@eatpraynub), he adds things that are far from hands, to his bionic arm. My favorite being baby yoda (grogu). Most of these additions are 3D printed. He adds a metal attachment at the bottom to fit into the bionic part. He not only creates really cool cosplay pieces but also talks about how a bionic arm actually works. Trace adds many things to his arm from lightsabers, to keyblades, to Aquaman’s harpoon. Not only is he making some really nerdy stuff for his arm, but he also makes functional cosplay props for sale (if you click the link in his name it will take you to a list of his services). He also has a book and plush doll for sale on his etsy, helping kids who were also born without limbs. He makes this “disability” into a really beautiful thing and makes everyone realize what a gift it can actually be. The books are to help kids who were born without hands, or any body part for that matter, cope and realize they’re not alone. Not to mention, he just wants to help the community and create some really cool art. I reached out to Trace to see if he had any additional comments and I didn’t get a response. So Trace, if you’re seeing this, thank you for making some really awesome stuff and making your community a better place.
Stay kind, cool, and crafty.
