6. A plush unicorn costume for a comfy feel with a hidden opening in the front pocket for easy abdominal access, and removable hood, tail, and wings to tailor the night's look as needed!

Target

Promising review: "Fantastic quality and no complaints from my little one — she is a unicorn fanatic, but has sensory issues. We are both extremely happy that the hood of this costume is easily removed, so that she is not feeling 'closed-in' by the hood. Adding a unicorn headband makes it acceptable to her and keeps us all hassle-free. Costume is very well made and will be perfect for trick-or-treating (cozy warm!), even if it is a cold night. Thank you, Target, for looking out for kids with special needs and understanding that they, too, just want to enjoy their childhoods." —Sally Reichman

Get it from Target for $25 (size 2T-3T) or $30 (kids' sizes XL-XXL).

7. A gothic angel costume you can deck out with lots of cool Halloween-y accessories.

Susie Regina / Etsy

FYI, this is made to order and you'll need your child's measurements when you order. So order with plenty of time before Halloween! The bodice Velcros up the back and the skirt is side to side and open in the back for comfort while seated.

Get it from Susie Regina on Etsy for $69.95.

11. A baby shark who's looking forward to do do, do do do do-ing all the Halloween activities. (Hard same.)

Target

Promising review: "My son put this on the second it came in the mail and I'm not sure he's going to be willing to take it back off. It is so soft and cozy! The detachable tail, fin, and head (hood) make it very flexible. He thinks the tummy access is just a pocket — which it does double as. In the pic online it looks a bit like that flap folds down but it does not, it is more like a front pocket on a hoodie but with small hidden slits behind it for access for ports/pumps/under garments if needed. We specifically wanted to be able to take the hood off (in part to make it look like a narwhal with some face paint and a horn) but honestly he likes the warmth and soft padding on the hood and probably won't part with it...at least I can zip it off if he insists on sleeping in it!" —Twinmama

Get it from Target for $25 (size 4T-5T) or $30 (kids' sizes L-XXL).

12. A fighter jet wheelchair costume that'll easily attach to a number of chair types as an option with some speed.

FYI, this is from an Etsy shop specializing in wheelchair adaptive clothing, costumes, and decorations!

13. A gorgeous Belle gown with Velcro and a special skirt design that'll look like a full gown skirt while seated.

Susie Regina / Etsy

FYI, this is made to order and you'll need your child's measurements when you order. So order with plenty of time before Halloween!

The bodice fits around the body with Velcro closure, and the skirt is attached only from side to side in the front so that it appears to be a full gown when the child is sitting in her chair.

Get it from Susie Regina on Etsy for $69.95.
