Group makes unbelievable Halloween costumes for kids in wheelchairs

- Volunteers created a one-of-a-kind Halloween costume for a first grader with cerebral palsy at Blanton Elementary.

The custom creation is the work of Bowen Brown and his team of volunteers.  

The non-profit group Magic Wheelchair, which helps build incredible wheelchair costumes for kids, supported them.  

”He wanted to be auto from the movie 'Wall-E,'” said Brown.     

From end-to-end, no detail from 7-year-old Aiden’s favorite flick was overlooked. It took nearly 300 hours to bring it to life.  

But time stopped when Aiden saw it for the first time. 

”He gets so excited every year to see his costume he loves trick or treating,” said his mother Lissette Lopez. “It is completely incredible. I don’t think in my wildest dreams I could've imagined this.”

”The idea is, it makes them the center of attention, not because of the chair but because they're something cool,” said Brown. 

Aiden's film-quality costume definitely makes him an A-lister.  

“It is a lot of work. I’m thrilled it came out the way it came out,” said Brown. 

And simply put, this year's costume is out of this world!
