    This is the first step in making prosthetics look like a terminator that is damaged. For years I said if I had a prosthetic, It would look like a Terminator limb. I’d even wear clothes that are tattered on that limb with tattered flesh added on too. Those peach colored rubber limbs aren’t fooling anybody. Add some Ray Bans with a red SMT LED behind one lens and you’re set to walk into a biker bar.
