Walkin' & Rollin' Costumes Brings Wheelchair Cosplay To Life

Inspired by his son, Lon Davis delivers joy to disabled children around the country with his unique creations.

When Lon Davis constructed a Wall-E costume for his disabled 5-year-old son, he didn't know it would launch a new mission for him, and that it would eventually bring smiles to over 100 other wheelchair-bound children in cities across the country.

Having taken the original concept and expanded it nationwide, Davis' non-profit foundation, Walkin' & Rollin' Costumes, builds custom cosplay that incorporate the wheelchair within the design. Whether it's X-Wing fighters, silvery DeLoreans, colorful locomotives, or Elsa's Frozen ice palace, the organization has crafted an amazing array of unique pieces, providing them to children free of charge.

We spoke to Davis about Walkin' & Rollin, what it means to him and why it's so important.
