Scary Fun for Everyone
With a couple of weeks to go until Halloween, children across the country are getting excited to head out on Halloween night to go door-to-door in hopes of getting bags full of candy. And while there are sure to be plenty of children running up and down the street, there will also be many children in wheelchairs and mobility scooters looking to get their hands on as much candy as possible.
The use of a wheelchair or mobility scooter can present some challenges, but there are plenty of costume ideas for children with limited mobility that will make sure they look great while shouting “Trick-or-Treat!” At EZ-ACCESS, we specialize at making sure people can make it in and out of your house, but we’ve also got some wheelchair Halloween costume ideas that will make sure your child can be a big hero, or a scary villain on All Hallows Eve.
And while kids usually have the most fun on Halloween night, these costume ideas work just as well for adults.
- Professor Charles Xavier: If you’re looking to be a hero, look no further than the leader of the X-Men. Charles Xavier may be the most famous hero that also needs to use a wheelchair. Dress in a simple suit and tie and add a flesh-colored skin cap to transform into Professor X. This costume is sure to be popular this year after the film X-Men: Days of Future Past came out during the summer.
- Fred Flintstone: Become Bedrock’s most famous resident and make the wheelchair or scooter part of the costume by turning it into the foot-propelled car. Simply color some cardboard and secure it to the sides and top of the wheelchair. Add a black wig, an orange pullover with black felt spots and a blue tie, and you’ll be easily recognizable as the most prominent member of the Modern Stone Age Family.
If you’re hoping to make sure everyone can make it to your door to go trick-or-treating, check out some EZ-ACCESS solutions that will help make sure everyone can ring your doorbell.
