I was going to make a dick comment - mainly about the headline, mind you - but then I saw the guy in the DJ outfit and I am just going to let this whole thing slide. What a great costume
 
2012-10-02 03:58:00 AM  
So cool. I refuse to make with the snark on this.

I'm laughing at the sweet, sweet irony of the Flintstones car. Right behind BronyMedic at the ticket counter.

It didn't take even 5 seconds.

It also got dusty. We have friends with 2 special needs kids (though they are not in wheelchairs). We will sometimes take care of them overnight on weekends to help the couple get some down time. When the oldest is awake, we HAVE to helicopter.
 
2012-10-02 05:44:00 AM  
Good for these kids. Some of these are pretty ridiculous, others are awesome.

It's what Halloween is all about.

Nope, still handicapped. Some good costumes, though.

Handi-capable would be, I dunno, having a fully-functional third arm or something awesome. Being stuck in a wheelchair reduces your mobility and pretending is doesn't is just insulting to handicapped adults and potentially dangerously misleading to handicapped children.

//The DJ one was pretty thorough, though, down to drawing on the wispy nerd moustache. Good times.

I got pissed off, actually. Who puts a girl in a wheelchair in a costume of a car you're supposed to laugh at because it's pedaled with feet? Stupid.

The others I saw were really good, though.

Jim_Callahan: Handi-capable would be, I dunno, having a fully-functional third arm or something awesome.


No, that would be "differently abled" -- which is why I object to using that term. (Despite my smart-arse remark to Subby, above.)

I can understand wanting to avoid "disabled," since that could suggest one is completely disabled, like a disabled vehicle or something. However, "handicapped" is correct. "Handi-capable" doesn't mean anything at all, really. Just political correctness B.S., like calling females "womyn."

/instead of biatches

My uncle was a cheap fugger. Shaved my disabled cousin's head bald and made him go as Professor X every Halloween.

As a dirty crippl.... I mean, handicapped person myself, I came here to say one thing and one thing only:

Handi-capable is the dumbest word in the history of our language.

That is all.

I'd go with the Red Dragon:

Or the Freddy:

Personaly I think the Red Dragon costume is better though. But if you do it right, you can turn it into a wicked Freddy costume without any extra makeup.

Well, if that's you in the photo.. you should be dragged out of your wheeled La-Z-Boy and beaten for wearing such an offensive hat.

These are great, but I do have to ask....how do they maneuver to/from the doors for trick or treating? Or are these more for school events?

My oldest is in a wheelchair and my wife makes kickass costumes for him for halloween. My favorites were a Space Shuttle and a Thomas the Tank Engine. We used to take him to the waterfront where there were organized (and outdoor) trick-or-treating. You'd be amazed how well some can drive their chairs.
