Young Star Wars Fan With Cerebral Palsy Wanted Halloween Costume, So His Parents Made Him THIS
"You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought."
Princess Leia may have made fun of the Millennium Falcon in "Star Wars: A New Hope," but it can make one sweet Halloween costume.
According to The Salt Lake Tribune, parents Chantelle and Patrick Bailey wanted to make a costume that their Star Wars-loving 5-year-old son Sebastian could wear while trick-or-treating from door to door. But there was an extra challenge: incorporating it with a child's walker.
Sebastian suffers from cerebral palsy and cannot walk unaided or speak. His ridiculously creative and skilled parents decided the solution was to turn his walker into a starship.
With incredible attention to detail, they fashioned a beautiful replica of Han Solo and Chewbacca's hamburger-and-olive-shaped YT-1300 light freighter around his walker, complete with a sound system that with the push of a button emits Han Solo quotes and the words "trick or treat."
It took the determined parents three weeks of late nights to finish the project, and they got to debut it before Halloween at their church's truck or treat event where it was a big hit.
To complete the picture, Sebastian dressed as Han Solo, his brother as Luke Skywalker, and his parents and RC-D2 and Chewbacca.
Pretty sweet, huh? Did your Halloween costume do the neighborhood candy run in less than 12 parsecs?
