Scary make-up art!
April from Chicago, USA, took to YouTube for make-up tutorials to create her Halloween costume. She said she has reached a "peaceful medium" and that she is proud to enhance her disability to encourage other people with physical disabilities to feel more positive about themselves.

UP we go!
From one of our favourite Pixar films, we have this adorable two-year old named Brantley who has dressed up as the infamous elderly character Carl Fredericksen. He is melting hearts across the world with his first ever trick-or-treating costume.
This young boy has an admiring amount of strength considering he has been fighting cerebral palsy, chronic lung disease and stage 3 kidney disease. Our thoughts are always with you Brantley!
The Genius Genie!
Former Paralympic ski racer Josh Sundquist is famous for his creative Halloween costumes that highlights his amputated leg. The US comedy star and best-selling author was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer when he was nine-years old. He said it would have been impossible to achieve anything without embracing his body the way that he does.
Josh wore a prosthetic for a many years to hide his disability, but now he couldn't be shining with more confidence. Josh is an absolute star and he loves to brightens people’s day on his Instagram posts, keep an eye out!
The Captain Has Arrived!
Five-year old Sebastian is ready for take-off in his handmade replica of the famous Star Wars Millennium Falcon. Sebastian's parents went to great lengths to dress him up as Han Solo - they even imported his speech button to allow him to communicate with some of Han Solo’s famous movie lines.
With three weeks of building, the effort Sebastian’s parents went to is incredible and it has been a great success!
