Mom Makes Incredible Wheelchair Halloween Costumes For Son With Spina Bifida

A creative mom makes incredible Halloween costumes for wheelchairs to empower youngsters with spina bifida and other conditions.
Cassie McLelland was inspired by her 10-year-old son Caleb to make the costumes. The boy suffers from spina bifida, which affects the spine.
"Caleb got his first wheelchair when he was two and a half years old," she told INSIDE EDITION. "When Halloween rolled around that year, I thought it would be fun to incorporate his wheels into the costume."
That year, she created a 'Bob the Builder' costume by transforming his wheelchair into a scoop truck and backhoe.
"It was a big hit and I've been making costumes every year since," she said.
She has since made clever creations including Mario Kart and Superman flying through the clouds. Caleb is a big help, she explained.
"He was very young when I first started doing this so I would decide the costume based on what he was interested in at that time," she said. "He started getting more involved in the idea when he was about six years old. Now he comes up with the ideas mostly on his own."
This year's costume, a hunter camouflaged behind leaves, was revealed on the Rachael Ray Show on Thursday.
"Caleb is an avid bird lover so he had the idea to make a camo duck blind," she explained. "It was definitely a one of a kind idea and it came out great."
October is also Spina Bifida Awareness Month.
