Halloween Costume Ideas for the Disabled


Dressing up for Halloween is fun for everyone. Whether you are a child or an adult, being able to dress up for an evening and someone else is exciting. Everyone should be able to enjoy this type of fun. 


Having a disability should not prevent you from dressing up for Halloween. In fact, it may even give you a little bit of an advantage. When you have a disability, you have the ability to be a lot more creative with your Halloween costumes. 


For those who have mobility disabilities and use a wheelchair or scooter, you can take advantage of your moving chair to create a fabulous moving costume. Think about it.  You can create an entire themed costume and not just a simple pullover outfit. 


Use cardboard and change your wheelchair into an X-Wing fighter and dress up as a Jedi. Or change it to a covered wagon and be a cowboy. If you use a walking frame, why not cover it to look like a stage and make yourself into a puppet? For anyone using a walking stick, change it into a samurai sword. 


Halloween costumes are about creativity. You can change yourself and your medical devices into anything that you want, even if it is only for a day. It just takes some time and a little bit of imagination. 


If you have a disability that is not a mobility restriction, you are still not limited to the types of costumes you can enjoy. Making a costume is a great project and can be a lot of fun. You can make something as simple as a ghost outfit from an old bed sheet to a complicated outfit like a space alien. 


Large cardboard boxes are great for changing into Halloween costumes as are old clothes that you can find at charity shops. You can be creative with old hats and old art supplies without having to spend a lot of money on your costume. 


The most important thing to remember when you are creating a Halloween costume is that you make something that makes you happy. It does not have to mean anything to anyone else. It does not have to be perfect; it does not have to be fancy, and it does not have to be popular. The most important thing is that it gives personal satisfaction and that you will enjoy yourself when you are wearing it. If you can make a costume that makes you happy, then you have captured the fun of Halloween.
