Adaptive Roleplay costumes and wheelchair cover sets launched on shopDisney last year, and this year, new selections inspired by Black Panther and Star Wars join the lineup, along with exciting additions to the adults and children’s adaptive costume collection.
Disney’s Halloween 2021 Adaptive Roleplay collection has even more to offer for wheelchair users and those with accessibility needs, as the access-friendly line debuts costumes inspired by “Raya and the Last Dragon,” Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision” and “Black Panther,” and classics Haunted Mansion, “Hocus Pocus,” and “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas,” plus a costume and a wheelchair cover themed to “The Mandalorian.”
Stephanie Young, president of Consumer Products, Games, and Publishing, said, “I’m thrilled that, through the expansion of our Adaptive Roleplay collection, we can further connect our iconic franchises with fans and families worldwide, through thoughtful design that allows everyone to take part in their favorite stories and worlds — from Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ to Star Wars’ ‘The Mandalorian.’”
Accessible-friendly costume design elements include:
- Stretch fabric that opens in the back, for front entry
- Flap openings at the center of the costume’s front, which feature self-stick fabric closures for access to tubes
- Rear openings with long inseams that help accommodate wheelchair adaptability
Wheelchair covers* are designed to fit most standard wheelchairs (24-inch wheels), and include plastic piping to help aid stability. Longer length of self-stick fabric strips keep covers in place.
These new offerings join the existing collection, which includes Disney Princesses and Pixar’s “Toy Story” and “The Incredibles” characters.
“With today’s announcement, we’re better able to meet the needs of more of our guests,” Young continued. “We’re excited to see this inspired collection continue to grow.”
Other items in the Halloween 2021 collection include Marvel elite heroes and Villain-inspired clothes, home décor, pet costumes, and accessories. Some items are available in the Disney parks and resorts.
