Man Makes Awesome Tank Costume for His Wheelchair-Bound Son

Colorado-based reddit user Viper20220k‘s 6-year-old stepson is wheelchair-bound due to cerebral palsy, but neither of them sees any reason that should keep him from participating in all the Halloween fun.

Each year, he builds his son incredible creations that would put even the best children’s costumes to shame. This year’s was no exception, and perhaps the best yet — with the son going as a beyond cool tank that even emits smoke from its barrel!

Building the elaborate costumes to both look great and safely accommodate the wheelchair is no easy task, with each taking between 15 to 30 hours to complete. Past costumes have included a pirate ship and a fire engine with working light bar.

Awesome Dad Makes Awesome Father/Son MechWarrior Costume

There’s still two months to go but I’d say the 2014 Father of the Year award has been wrapped up. Ryan Bowen built this incredible father/son MechWarrior costume using just PVC piping, cardboard, and zip ties.

The ‘MechDaddy’ costume is inspired by a computer game Ryan played during high school, in which you fight other people in mechanized war suits. Naturally, when Ryan learned he and his wife were having a baby building this was the thing that first came to mind.

Cardboard, taken from the multitude of leftovers they had from baby stuff packaging, wraps a PVC shell which rests on Ryan’s shoulders. Zip ties and velcro tape hold everything together, with the Mech legs being held up by a belt. The gun hands are actually Ryan’s natural hands, oddly enough, so I guess that worked out for him.

Watch how much baby Geriant loves the MechDaddy costume in the video below!

Charting the Progression of Girls Halloween Costumes

If you’ve been to college, you know that for many young women picking a Halloween costume basically entails choosing a profession, then adding ‘Sexy’ in front of it.

Sexy Nurse, Sexy Policewoman, Sexy Assistant Plumber… you know the drill. And we all applaud them for it.

Noticing this odd but funny progression girls go through once they become adults, reddit users put together a chart of different popular costumes for girls throughout the years.
