Alternative limbs: Snake arms, crystallized legs and more

The Alternative Limb Project makes pretty cool alternative bespoke prosthetics that really make their wearers — sorry, pun — stand out rather than blend in. The intricately crafted arm for Jo-Jo Cranfield with a green snake curled around it is a gorgeous creation, while the Swarovski-ed crystallized leg that Viktoria Modesta wore for her performance at the closing ceremony London 2012 Paralympics is pretty impressive too.
