There have been many pictures floating around on the internet of creative costume ideas for people that use wheelchairs.
Here are a couple of websites that have some great compilations of Halloween costumes:
These costumes are fun to look at and obviously many of them took a considerable amount of time to make. So, how does someone go about creating their own unique design? Check out the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s Paralysis Resource Center’s page for some more ideas and specific instructions on wheelchair costume design.
