Costumes are super fun for everyone, though not all costumes are easy to wear all the time! In fact, sometimes it seems like they were made by villains given how tough those zippers can be or how itchy fabric can feel. The itch of seams on sensitive skin can be irritating to anyone. Metal snaps aren’t always easy for little fingers to secure. Fitting an arm cast into sleeves is a master feat. Having access to medical devices while dressed to the nines is beyond important. And feeling included in the world around you is something everyone deserves. This is why universal Halloween costume options exist.

Our goal is to bring the fun of Halloween to all, though, and that means some creative adaptations! You may be heading out for a night of trick-or-treating with the kids or maybe the ride on the school bus needs an awesome upgrade. Either way, we believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the fun of costumes. That’s why we’re excited to offer some great accessible costume options from some of your favorite themes.

Whether you or a loved one is of differing ability or your rambunctious toddler took a tumble that ended with a walking cast, our selection of adaptive costumes is here to help ensure everyone has access to a comfortable outfit. You’ll find a growing collection of options suited for children and adults.

Inclusive clothing is intended to make getting dressed and feeling comfortable in those clothes easier for everyone. Hook and loop fastening strips close without fuss and look similar to standard zippers on a garment. That can make them ideal for children learning to dress themselves as well as caregivers assisting in the process. Prefer zippers still? Look for options that feature larger pull tabs that make zipping up easy to manage.

You’ll see some of the jumpsuits in our collection are exclusively fastened with hook and loop closures. Along leg seams, arms, and back, making them easy for kids to put on and adults to help with. And, with their easy to open and close construction, this style of costume may be the perfect option for individuals using wheelchairs or anyone that may need extra room in their pant legs or sleeves for medical equipment.

Concerned about sensory sensitivities? These universal costume options keep those needs in mind with softer fabric, fewer interior seams, and linings when necessary. These thoughtful additions, and in some respects, subtractions, offer plenty of benefits. When your toddler steps out of their room dressed comfortably as their favorite character and having done it all on their own, you know everyone’s in for a great time!

Not finding the look you or your kiddo has been dreaming of? We’re always working on expanding our selection. So, check back with us often to discover the costumes and accessories that suit your wants and needs!

Adaptive Costume FAQ

The word "adaptive" isn't always the most obvious term! Figuring out what it means and, more importantly, how it makes a costume accessible shouldn't be tough. That's why we're trying to answer a few questions straight away so you know what to expect from these costumes, can find the right costume for everyone, and know how to get in and out of them, too! Check out these FAQs so you're starting out ahead of the accessible costume game!

What are some wheelchair costume ideas?

Wheelchair costumes can turn a wheelchair into a vehicle. It can be a perfect fit for a character known for zooming down the road. Combining a costume with a superhero wheelchair costume is more than just accessible—it completes the character!

How to make a wheelchair costume:

Wheelchair costumes are made with stiff felt and supportive plastic piping. Dowels connect together and the heavy-duty fabric fastens with hook and loop strips or fabric ties. That keeps all the wheelchair mechanisms accessible while transforming the appearance in a snap.

What are universal and adaptive Halloween costumes?

Accessible costumes are designed to make wearing a costume easy and fun for everyone. This includes people in wheelchairs, folks with sensitive skin, or those with medical devices that need to be easily accessed. They have many adaptive features other costumes may lack.

They may feature overlapping fabric or magnets instead of zippers. They can have generous cuts so you can wear your more familiar street clothes underneath or have soft linings to ensure comfort. Open backs and midsection pockets can make it easy to help someone else in or out of a costume while also providing covert and accessibility options for medical equipment!

How to make custom Halloween costumes with a walker:

The key to accessible costumes for people in leg braces are flexible openings! Costume pants may feature larger leg bottoms with hook and loop straps or overlapping fabric so a brace fits comfortably under the costume. This prevents a constricting feel and can even allow a costume to be put on with the leg brace already in place.

Sensory-Friendly Costumes

Costumes are incredibly fun, but they can be a bit of a drag if they don’t fit right, don’t feel that comfortable, or if you have to fuss and fumble to get them on in the first place. The key is accessibility! Our adaptive costumes are designed to be easy and fun to wear at every stage of the day or night. Your kiddo can hardly feel like you’re living out your Disney dream if the costume is distracting you from the fun. Inner linings can make costumes easy on sensitive skin (and just feel cool in general either way). Plus, covert pockets and adaptable design at the midsection and cuffs can make sure you never have to worry about whether the costumes will get in the way of your daily needs!
