Tron knee brace

After working all week on the Tron bag tutorial and video, I’m dressed to impress tonight with some EL wire on my knee brace. Some dude yelled at me for being in the front of the bus the other day, but it was because he couldn’t see my giant post-surgery knee brace under my long coat. That’s not a problem anymore! I glued the EL wire in place and clipped the inverter to one of the straps. Full size pic on Flickr.

  1. getting pretty sick of people sticking el wire to stuff and then describing it as either “tron” or “hack”
    I doubt anyone in the move has either a leg brace or satchel.

    1. Rather than get upset, try mentally adding “-inspired” after any instance of the word “Tron.” That way you’ll be able to more easily appreciate their work without getting stuck on the semantics. I think these projects are really cool. They definitely have me wishing I had the time/know-how to do them.

  2. Nice decoration of a knee brace- I pinstriped my crutches many years ago, they were a daily companion for months.
    Get well soon.
