So, my wife had to go to the doctor today because she hyper-extended her wrist a few days ago. As it turns out, she strained her tendons pretty bad and the doc gave her a brace that she has to wear for the next two weeks. When she got home from the doctor's, she asked me if I would like to decorate it for her. Needless to say, I was very excited to do so!
Here's how the brace looked to begin with (with the first bits of sharpie drawing on the thumb piece):
And, after more black sharpie and a bit of chainmaile:
I decided after it was finished that it was no longer a wrist-brace. Far from it. It has now become a futuristic battle-gauntlet that prevents her wrist from snapping back when she fires her super compact, hand-held Railgun. She fires the Railgun with her off-hand, of course, because her dominant hand needs to be free to wield her Tesla Sword!
My wife sent me a modified picture with her thoughts on the subject:
And now she'll happily follow her doctors instructions and actually wear the brace for the full two weeks
