Steampunk Cervical Collar

Redditor Penguinz90 underwent spinal fusion and has to wear a collar for six weeks. She decided to dress it up a bit, and in the process, made it unobtrusive, steampunk, and downright cool. Now it looks more like an accessory than a medical device! She said,

I had spare foam inserts do I dyed those so I didn't have to take the collar off to do it as I'm supposed to wear it 24/7 with the exception of showers. I did cheat and took it off to color the overall plastic brace with a black oil based paint Sharpie (I rested my head on a recliner while I did it), I then kept it on and hot glued the gears on while looking in the mirror.

That’s what you call taking a pain in the neck and turning it into a fashion statement.
