This October, The Mighty teamed up with The Reeve Foundation and asked our readers to share photos of themselves or loved ones incorporating their disability into their Halloween costumes. The results? Creativity. Creativity. And more creativity.

Reese, pictured above, served as the inspiration behind father Lon Davis’ company, Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes, which designs outfits for kids who use wheelchairs, free of charge. This was Davis’ first year designing Halloween costumes, and he shared these images with The Mighty after his first set of orders were shipped.

Please note: A previous version of this article had 19 costumes; this is the updated one.
