3302 Dad Builds An Awesome Star Wars Snowspeeder Costume From His Sons Wheelchair
Ryan Scott Miller

This kid just won Halloween.

Eight-year-old Jeremy Miller's dad helped him create the most awesome fancy dress costume of all time – a pilot for the Rebel Alliance, complete with a wheelchair turned into a snowspeeder.

Along with looking pretty badass, the snowspeeder also has working braking flaps and three Nerf guns that shoot glow-stick foam missiles. The construction – made from foam board, PVC pipe, spray paint, bicycle brakes and duct tape – took Jeremy's dad, Ryan Scott Miller, two weeks to complete.

Jeremy, has spina bifida, a condition in which the spinal cord doesn’t develop fully. However, it’s never stopped him from having ridiculously cool Halloween costumes, which in the past have included a TIE fighter, a pirate ship, a Batmobile and Captain America's motorcycle.

"He saw it throughout the build process and every night he would have this open-mouthed look of shock. He couldn't wait to get in it," Miller told CNET's Crave blog. "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."
