Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.

Prosthetic Arm

I found this prosthetic forearm in an interior decor shop a few weeks back but couldn't afford it at the time. I obsessed over it, coveted it, watched it intently on the shop's online store until such time as I could revisit the shop and purchase it for myself.

Today was that day and I was overjoyed to find that it was still there, tucked away, just waiting for me.

Firstly, the glove was sold with the arm. I like that it gives it a bit of a 'Drive' feel... It's as if the Driver ever lost his right arm, this would be his replacement.

Secondly, the only articulation is in the thumb but it's got one hell of a grip. I keep getting my fingers trapped in it.

Regrettably, I can't find any kind of manufacturer's details, other than what appears to be a serial number: 384390.

Oh, and I have no idea as to how the sling is supposed to be fitted.
