A Jedi Cosplayer Made A Lightsaber Attachment For Her Amputated Arm And Darth Vader Would Be Jealous

Cosplayers are known for being dedicated to their character-inspired costumes. Comic book conventions are always filled with people who go all out with head-to-toe creations based on all their favorite fictional heroes. One cosplayer took it one step further by making her costume a part of her body.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2019, actress Angel Giuffria teamed up with her friend Trace Wilson to create Star Wars-inspired lightsaber attachments for their amputated arms. She dressed as a Jedi and he dressed as a Sith, and with their light-up sabers, they looked totally ready for action.

Ive been told I look like#CarrieFishera few times in my life and told I look like#LukeSkywalkera few times too (arms not face Im assuming????). Heres me embracing both sides! Thank you to@eatpraynub&@saber_forge for the saber parts!

Giuffria has been getting a lot of love from fans who appreciate her creative arm attachment. She’s even gotten attention from one very famous fan: Luke Skywalker himself.

Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies retweeted Giuffria and called her a “future Jedi.”

Giuffria is setting an inspiring example for how the things that make us different are often our greatest strengths.
