Creative Wheelchair Halloween Costume Ideas

Amramp salutes families and kids who celebrate Halloween with their awesome costumes

 

It can be challenging to find the right costume for children who require special mobility solutions, but it doesn't mean that it's impossible!

 

Now, with so many online resources available on blogs and social media, it's easier for parents to get Halloween costume ideas for their children to make their own costumes. ABC News shared the Carrie McLelland, a Texas mother who builds Halloween costumes for children with spina bifida. She started by creating wheelchair-friendly costumes for her son, Caleb, who has dressed as Mario Kart, Bob the Builder, and Batman in the Batmobile. 

 

There are also companies and creatives like McLelland who can create a custom wheelchair costume. This approach does require more advanced planning, but it's worth keeping in mind for next year!

 

Want to get started thinking of your child's Halloween costume? Pinterest and Etsy are great places to find inspiration for children's Halloween costumes, as well as family costume ideas—we found several wheelchair costume ideas that we featured in last year's Halloween blog post. 

 

Here are some of our favorite inspiration for children's wheelchair costumes this Halloween:

Amramp Salutes Parents Who Rock Halloween

Posted on Sun, Oct 01, 2017

Every year, Amramp loves seeing how families put together incredible wheelchair Halloween costumes for their children!

Although having limited mobility can be especially frustrating for young children on an average day, we admire parents who make Halloween a special day for their sons and daughters to have the best costumes among their peers. It's hard to miss all of the creativity, love and care that is put into the wheelchair Halloween costumes.

Hot Air Balloon Pilot

 

Kirstin, a proud mother of four daughters (two daughters are diagnosed with cystic fibrosis and one is diagnosed with multiple disabilities), created this elaborate costume for one of her girls. The colorful balloon and flags make this truly stand out!

Jorden, young cancer survivor, is ready to launch into infinity and beyond as the space ranger in Disney Pixar's Toy Story—the tap lights on the ship's wings are a useful detail for trick-or-treating at night.
