Mom Makes Amazing Halloween Costumes For Her Son Who's In A Wheelchair (Photos)
Being in a wheelchair doesn't mean you have to miss out on the Halloween fun.
Cassie McLelland is an awesome mom from Texas who transforms wheelchairs into insanely awesome costumes for kids with disabilities.
McLelland started making these cool costumes back in 2008 when her son Caleb got his first wheelchair. McLelland was so touched by Caleb's ecstatic response to the costumes, she was inspired to spread the Halloween spirit to other children with disabilities by starting a blog and selling ready-to-go costume kits on Etsy.
McLelland told ABC News,
Caleb and his wheelchair costumes have gotten a great deal of attention in the past few years, and it's a great coincidence because Halloween and October also fall on spina bifida awareness month. We try to use the attention as a platform and opportunity to share our story and teach people about spina bifida.
Take a look at the pictures below to see some of these epic Halloween costumes.
Meet Cassie and Caleb McLelland. Caleb was born with a kind of spina bifida and has been in a wheelchair since the age of 3.
But, that never stopped this happy kid from having tons of fun on Halloween. Over the years, Cassie transformed his wheelchair into all sorts of incredible costumes ranging from Bob the Builder...
To a sky-soaring Superman...
...and Batman in his badass Batmobile, of course!
Caleb also conquered the trick-or-treating scene with some video game-inspired costumes such as Dry Bones from Mario Kart...
...and the legendary rubber-burning Mario himself.
Now, this crafty mom is showing other parents how to create cool costumes for their kids with her blog, "Wheelchair Costumes," because no child should miss out on Halloween festivities.
