It is also a place where you can dressed up or “cosplay” during the entire event. It is like having Halloween all under one roof! They even have costume contests where you can show off your best costume and win prizes depending on which con you attend.

This will allow the wheelchair to be disguised or give it a  new shape. You can dress up as your favorite Doctor or become an actual moving robot.

Isn’t it everyone’s dream to fly one of the Star Wars’ flying space craft? This is your chance to decorate your wheelchair to turn it into a flying space craft and show which Star Wars’ clan you are representing.

 

Disney – Pirate ship (for Captain Hook), Cars, Cinderella Carriage (for Cinderella), Tron Vehicle

Do you always want to be a character from the Disney’s franchises? Instead of being just Captain Hook, you can make your idea become more creative by creating his ship so it will look like you are sailing it. This also applies for Cinderella and the characters from Tron as well. Turn your wheelchair in to the vehicle that your Disney character uses.
