20+ Awesomely Accessible Halloween Costumes

Diply 26 Sep 2018

Halloween is a magical time of year, whether you're into ghosts and goblins and skeletons or you're more of a unicorns and princesses person. And it's a time to give free reign to your inner crafter and let your creative juices flow.

Sometimes, you just need a little inspiration to get going, though, so here's some inspiration we can all get behind: costumes just for kids in wheelchairs. So much work has gone into them, and the smiles they've put on kids' faces show how worthwhile it all was.

1. I never would have thought of this, but you have to admit that this Hogwarts Express costume is truly magical.

4. This boy got an absolutely amazing costume to go with his wheelchair, especially for a HALO fan: a Warthog with a working turret.


Of course, it just fires Nerf darts, but still, that's some awesome work.

10. Of course, Star Wars is a popular choice, even if you don't end up going with the light side options.

This Darth Vader/TIE Fighter costume might not have the best peripheral vision, but it's still pretty awesome. Glad they've got that light saber for visibility's sake, too.

11. This family embraced the Force as well, with a huge X-Wing costume.

But as large as it is, the wings fold up to make navigating tight spaces — and possibly trench runs — a little bit easier.

12. And then there's this family, who went all out with the X-Wing as well.

Honestly one of the best X-Wings I've seen out there, and the whole family is into it.

I'd watch out for flying turtle shells around this guy!

I really want to know how his folks got the legs on the ant he's riding to move like that.
