Awesome Steampunk Back Brace Makes The Best Of A Bad Situation

download

This is Maddie. She was injured in a car accident and needs to wear a brace due to a T12 fracture. She didn’t like the standard brace, so she decided to make the best of a bad situation. Her mother tells EPBOT:

My daughter didn’t like the brace she had to wear after surgery, so a friend helped her steampunk it. Best part, now folks are intrigued, and come up and ask why she has to wear it rather than just staring.

Her friend is named Sarah, and she’s one of those awesome theater nerds who does set design. They steampunked the heck out of that brace and the result is just amazing.

The brace has become something both fashionable and therapeutic, thanks to a little paint, some appliques, and a great imagination.
