Although the Halloween fun has come and gone, we’re still marveling at some of the costumes that Magic Wheelchair put together for the children.
If you or someone in your family uses a wheelchair, you’re well aware that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to the traditional costumes you find at your local retail store. Here are five of the coolest wheelchair-friendly Halloween costumes we’ve seen. You know, it’s not too early to start thinking about next year’s costume!
1. The Flintstones’ Flintmobile
The Flintmobile, now there’s an icon for you! The best part is that you really don’t need to purchase extensive materials to make it. Thick cardboard, light-colored fabric, colored paint, and twine will do the trick.
2. A Princess Carriage
It is every little girl’s dream to become a princess one day, and Halloween offers the perfect opportunity to turn that wish into a reality. Magic Wheelchair fashioned this little girl’s wheelchair into a princess carriage and sent her off to the Halloween Ball in style.
3. Moana’s Ship
Since her very first appearance on the big screen, Moana captured the hearts of many young girls and boys alike. And who says there can’t be a Maui steering the ship? Moana has to get some sleep too, right? We have seen Moana costumes since the movie’s release, so why not turn your child’s wheelchair into a ship for Halloween? Complete the look with Moana or Maui’s two best friends on deck, Heihei and Pua.
4. The Batmobile
You can transform your teen’s wheelchair into the most advanced automobile in all of Gotham City with a fabulous batmobile costume…complete with a steering wheel and wing-shaped tailfins. Finish off the look with a Batman shirt or hoodie.
5. Star Wars Spaceship
The whole family can be battle-ready with this elaborate and beautiful Star Wars Spaceship wheelchair costume. Some cardboard, glue, tape, paint, and scissors are all you need to create this realistic shuttle to slip over the wheelchair. Add Star Wars gear and you’ll be the coolest family from space.
Keep in mind for next year that finding a wheelchair friendly costume doesn’t have to be a struggle. It just takes a little extra creativity. For more ideas or to receive a FREE wheelchair costume designed by the makers at Magic Wheelchair, start your application here.
