Halloween – the time for pumpkins and witches, costumes and trick-or-treating. For one day, we get a free pass to dress up and be whoever we want. However, wheelchair-users are familiar with the difficulty of trying to incorporate their devices into their costumes. We love seeing costumes that not only include wheelchairs, but actually embrace them. To help inspire you, we’ve rounded up our favorite 10 wheelchair-costumes from around the web.

The Flintstones
