For their cosplay outfits at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, actress and Carrie Fisher look alike Angel Giuffria and her best friend Trace Wilson very cleverly created lightsaber attachments to their respective amputated arms for truly battle-ready costumes, she as Jedi and he as Sith.
I’m absolutely loving wearing my lightsaber attachment for my bionic arm – while trying to safely keep my fingers crossed for an audition for @starwars one day. Wouldn’t it be a cool addition to have actual amputees in the film series since there’s so many amputee characters! I’ve been told I look like #CarrieFisher a few times in my life and told I look like #LukeSkywalker a few times too (arms not face I’m assuming?). Here’s me embracing both sides!
Real amputee Jedi?! YES! #cosplay LOVING my lightsaber attachment for my bionic arm while trying to safely keep my fingers crossed for an audition for @starwars one day. #BionicActress Spent my whole life wanting to be Luke AND Leia ? @HamillHimself #RepresentationMatters pic.twitter.com/eB0mZ3Xuyr

Mark Hamill was duly impressed with Giuffria’s look.
Look no further than inspirational #BionicActress @aannggeellll for the next generation of @starwars heroes-
