This Star Wars snowspeeder is the best Halloween costume ever

Anyone putting the finishing touches to their Halloween costume should give up now.

Star Wars fan Ryan Miller has turned his son Jeremy’s wheelchair into a snowspeeder and it may just be the greatest Halloween costume we’ve ever seen.

Using foam board, PVC pipe, bicycle brakes, and duct tape, Miller managed to turn Jeremy‘s usual mode of transport into a fully fledged replica of the iconic vehicle from the films.

The snowspeeder also has working weaponry thanks to Miller integrating three Nerf guns into the design.

Jeremy, who has spina bifida, a condition where the spinal cord fails to develop correctly, is no newcomer to awesome Halloween costumes.

Last year he arrived in similarly spectacular fashion when his dad transformed his wheelchair into Captain America’s motorcycle.


Miller designed his latest creation based on a toy and photos of models from the internet.

“I was a huge Star Wars fan as a kid and I would have loved to have something like this, so it makes me giddy-happy to see my son so happy and excited in it,” Miller told CNET.
