Target has put out a look at it’s 2019 Halloween Collection and this stood out to me!
But how is this Disney related you might ask. I’m going to tell you!
This year Target is offering an “Adaptive Costume Collection” and is offering two costumes for wheelchairs.
They do label them “boy” and “girl” in the description but I don’t see why the wheelchair costumes can’t be used for either. I would totally rock the pirate one!
Plus..they are pirates and princesses….Yay!
The girls costume is a Princess Halloween Costume offers a separate wheel chair costume that remind me a bit of Cinderella’s carriage! So you could even use the costuming for the wheel chair and add a Cinderella dress or a Prince Charming costume.
“This Halloween wheelchair costume is designed to look just like a princess carriage, with a purple-blue and gray color scheme adorned with intricately detailed scrollwork — it even includes decorative covers for the wheelchair for a complete finish. A simple way to dress up most sizes of wheelchairs, it can easily be attached using the hook-and-loop closures for a secure fit, and she’ll love having a coordinating crown to wear for a delightfully enchanting look.”
The dress will be $20 and the Wheel Chair ensemble will be $45 (with a release date of 8/22)
Here you could definitely theme it to Pirates of the Caribbean with a Captain Jack Sparrow or Redd the Pirate costume.
“This Halloween wheelchair costume is designed to look just like a pirate ship, complete with intricate detailing and a black Jolly Roger flag for authentic flair — it even includes decorative covers for the wheels that look like waves for a complete finish. A simple way to dress up most sizes of wheelchairs, it can easily be attached using the hook-and-loop closures for a secure fit, and he’ll love having a coordinating accessory that’ll go perfectly well with the Pirate Inclusive Halloween Costume from Hyde and Eek! Boutique™.”
The Pirate Costume is $25 and the Wheelchair costume is $45 (with release date of 8/22.)
I just love this idea and I can see how they can be totally Disneyfied.
I’m not really sure if these would be allowed at events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party because there are guidelines and this might violate those. So I would recommend checking with Disney. But I really do hope they see posts like this one and consider making a clarification and modification to the rules to allow these, however it might be a bit dangerous to other guests in a confined area or make loading/unloading for attractions more difficult, so I could understand it if they wouldn’t allow it.
But for general trick-or-treating I think this is a fantastic idea and I’m so glad to see companies getting on board with inclusive costuming!
