These costumes are definitely worth DIY-ing.
From cool covers that easily hook or tie onto the side of a wheelchair to costumes with hidden panels for tube access, wheelchair and adaptive costumes for Halloween have come a long way. This year, stores like Target and shopDisney are offering their own lines of wheelchair covers and adaptive costumes, so kids can trick-or-treat as their favorites like Cinderella, Buzz Lightyear and the Incredibles (complete with Incredimobile) — as well as witches, dragons, pirates and mermaids. Most of these costumes are designed with back or side openings, lengths perfect for wheelchair users and other adaptive features.
Of course, even with so many ready-to-by offerings, it's often the DIY projects that still wow the most. From Jurassic Park rangers to Ghostbusters complete with Ecto-1 cars to Dr. Who with his TARDIS, there's certainly lots of creativity when it comes to creating homemade wheelchair costumes. Here are 20 of our favorites, a mix of ready-to-buy and DIY, for whatever level of Halloween you're ready to take on this year. And, if you're ready for more Halloween inspiration for families, we also have ideas for Halloween costumes for babies, toddler Halloween costumes, kids' Halloween costumes, teenager Halloween costumes and sibling Halloween costumes.
