18 Brilliant Halloween Costumes for Kids and Their Wheelchairs

Halloween is a pretty special time of the year for a lot of people, especially kids.

It’s a time when imaginations can run completely wild and there is no limit to the amount of dreaming that can be done.

Recently, as I was bopping around the internet looking for costume ideas for my two kids, I ran across a bunch of images of little kids who had decorated their wheelchairs for Halloween. I stared at the screen, mesmerized. What I saw just blew my mind; there were so many incredibly cool ideas, so many kids sitting there beaming with pride at their souped-up ride.

In a Halloween daze, I went looking for more, Googling my way down all sorts of tunnels and rabbit holes, trying to find more and more photos of some pretty amazing kids and their damn fine get-ups.

It’s pretty great, looking at these photos of happy youth. They remind me that Halloween is really only about one thing, and that’s seeing kids smile.

Think about it.  What else is there come October 31st? If young people aren’t grinning from ear to ear by sundown, something’s up, don’t you think? Anyhow, I’ve collected a bunch of these photos together for you to see.

Individually, I bet each one will make you smile a bit yourself.

Collectively, I think they’re going to make your heart flutter a time or three.

    Okay, just look at that little guy's smile. Now, I'm being dead serious when I ask you, "Is this the best Halloween costume of all time?" Because I'm like 95% certain that it is.

  • Buzz Lightyear! 9 of 18
    wc-16

    I've got to be honest here, this young fellow's Buzz Lightyear costume and his souped-up walker/spaceship are so perfect. But it's his smile in this picture that makes me want to drop an extra 2 or 3 Hershey Bars in his bag come Halloween. I hope he won First Prize somewhere out there.
