These Jaw-Dropping Halloween Costumes Are For Kids In Wheelchairs

Magic Wheelchair was started by a father of five to help kids in wheelchairs have the coolest costume on the block.

Magic Wheelchair is a nonprofit created by Oregon-based dad Ryan Weimer, who has spent years building costumes for his three children that use wheelchairs for mobility.

"Giving families and kids those experiences that we’ve been able to have year after year, it’s awesome. I love it," Weimer told BuzzFeed News. "My kids are seen as superstars and not looked at with sympathetic eyes or sadness."

"It’s not a cure," he added. "I wish I was smart enough to come up with something like that. It’s a cure for a day. It helps them forget. It helps other people see them as kids, and not just a kid in a wheelchair."


Kids who want to have their dream costume made can submit a 1 to 3 minute video to MagicWheelchair.org about what they want to be for Halloween and why they should be selected.
