Need an arm, but not a leg

I am about 75% done with this image restoration. Still have some issues with the dress, the fireplace at the lower left, the white sport coat and final color correction which I can handle. The real issue is the completely missing arm and hand in a long glove. Is there such a thing as a source for missing limbs and other body parts? Any other ideas will be appreciated.

Here is a low-res pdf for a quick look: http://www.joedempseyphoto.com/bill-ellen-2.pdf

Here's a jpg: http://www.joedempseyphoto.com/bill-ellen-2.jpg

The working file with all layers is 783 mb with all the layers still intact.

Thanks,
Joe

Well maybe you can use any other arm from different picture like this one in attachment. I did it in two minutes not look so good but you can understand my point

Thanks for the response. Exactly what I am looking for ... where did you find the arm?

Re: Need an arm, but not a leg

A Google image search returns a variety of possibilities for ideas. Note you can use advanced search options under SEARCH TOOLS to filter a return of larger files as well as selecting file types (i.e., photos).

White Long Glove

Clothing Stores are another option: i.e. vintage gloves

also if you have any other photos of her you could use her own arm.
