That is the coolest thing I've seen maybe ever.

Her responses at the end to testing her awesome lego prosthetic were my favorite part. I like watching people have a blast.

Kids these days. Lincoln Logs not good enough for you, anymore?

Man no way would I be laughing at the prospect of falling near that many Lego bricks. Crazy little plastic caltrops.

And I have always thought of stepping on Lego bricks as a bad thing....

Hee hee!

I hope I never get to test this speculation, but I think that if I had a missing leg and an infinite amount of lego this is exactly the kind of thing I would be doing obsessively, all the time. This is a woman after my own heart.

From her FB page:
I was trying on shoes today at a local store and the employee said, "So I guess you only gotta buy one shoe, huh?"

I looked at him and said, "No dude, I've still got two feet."
My love for her cannot be expressed in mere words.

They should give her the 2nd shoe for free.

This video is awesome. I love the look of pure glee on her face @4:02 where she wiggles her new foot for the first time.

I also find myself kind of jealous. I would like to make parts of myself out of Lego. This is closest I have and probably will ever come to experiencing apotemnophilia.

Finally had a chance to actually watch the video. So cool!

This is possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen somebody make out of Lego.
