Amazing Halloween Costumes for Kids that use Wheelchairs

| Source:

Doctor Who

“We love Doctor Who for its optimism and creativity, which are in my child. I also love this costume because Doctor Who’s time machine (the TARDIS) is famous for being bigger on the inside, just like my little guy.” — Tresa, mom of Atticus, age 7, of Sacramento, CA

Mr. Rogers Neighborhood Trolley

“My son is a huge fan of the classic television show. We built the Neighborhood Trolley from scratch and dressed him in a cardigan and tie just like Fred Rogers!” — Mary, mom of Simeon, age 2, of Columbus, OH

Pizza Delivery Truck

“Jack loves pizza, especially from Cicero’s [the family’s local pizza joint]. They were kind enough to provide a shirt and some boxes for their only delivery truck!” — Phil, dad of Jack, age 6, of Santa Clara, CA

Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon

“For Halloween, my oldest son wanted to be a dragon rider and fly Toothless from his favorite movie How to Train Your Dragon. These costumes for one day of the year—and really any day they want to rock ’em—bridge the gap of excluding kids in wheelchairs and do that in an epic way!”— Ryan, dad of Keaton, age 9 and Bryce, age 3 (next slide), of Keizer, OR

Gronckle from How To Train Your Dragon

“My wife made this blue furry Gronckle costume in a day to go with his big brother’s Toothless costume. In these costumes, my kids become rock stars and the wheelchairs disappear!” — Ryan, dad of Bryce, age 3, and Keaton, age 9 (previous slide), of Keizer, OR

Bat Mobile

“Gavin loved being Batman and driving his Batmobile around the neighborhood on Halloween. My husband and I love building his costume each year! We work hard on spreading the mission of inclusion, and building these costumes for us really helps to put Gavin right with the other kids in our neighborhood.” — Laura, mom of Gavin, age 11, of Jacksonville, NC

Cinderella’s Carriage

“Spina Bifida and walking long distances is hard on my daughter’s body, so I wanted to create something fun for her with her favorite princess, Cinderella. I hand-painted and cut out each side of the carriage from cardboard. She loved it!” — Jessica, mom of Chloe, age 5, of Sunbury, PA

Wizard of Oz

“As a family, we try to make Tucker feel involved by doing a family theme that uses his wheelchair. We try to choose themes that people will really enjoy so that people are excited to see us each year and give him such amazing support and attention.”— Jason, dad of Tucker, age 14, of Statesboro, GA

Hello Kitty Car

“Kinley was born with Spina Bifida. For Halloween, our family made a costume that turned the focus away from Kinley’s wheelchair and instead to a fun, creative, Hello Kitty car costume with a beautiful, happy, and capable toddler girl behind the wheel. Her smile says it all!” — Casy, mom of Kinley, age 2, of Circleville, OH

Wild Kratts

“Caleb loves the Wild Kratts show on PBS. He was Chris Kratt (one of the Kratt brothers) driving the Createrra. I made the vehicle from cardboard to fit around his wheelchair.” — Cassie, mom of Caleb, age 9, of Mansfield, TX


“Caleb was and Mario Kart was his favorite Wii game at that time. His younger brother Benjamin was Luigi. MarioKart was probably the hardest costume I have made for Caleb; it’s also my favorite.”— Cassie, mom of Caleb, age 9 of Mansfield, TX
