For kids with disabilities, Halloween is a chance to pretend to be someone else. A superhero cape or cool mask can help a kid forget the monsters they face on a daily basis. Let me tell you, the result is beautiful to see. Last year, Ryan Miller crafted the coolest star wars themed costume for his wheelchair bound son, Jeremy. Complete with working lights and sounds, the getup was a hit with Jeremy and the rest of us, but his costume this year just may outdo the last.
This year, Ryan decided to surprise his son with the coolest Ghostbusters themed costume we’ve ever seen. Jeremy is a huge fan of the movies, and the theme seemed like the perfect one for this halloween season. Ryan took to the web to give us some insight into his creation.
“Jeremy’s seen all three [Ghostbusters] shows and watches the cartoons on Netflix,” Miller told Mashable, “He loves the music, he loves that it’s a comedy with some pretty cool gadgets and adventure.”
The completed Ecto-1 costume includes “working headlights, siren lights, tail lights and speakers for the Ghostbusters siren and theme music” Miller wrote, “The roof rack includes yellow canisters, green canisters, blue tubes, ladder, red probe, siren light, two speakers (one for the Ghostbusters siren and one for theme music), satellite dish and whatever the white & red canister is from the Ecto-1.”

Of all of Jeremy’s costumes, “This has been the most complicated and difficult build,” Miller wrote, “The frame was more complex, [and] there was a lot of detail,” he continued.
“We’ve come to love the smiles we bring to kids and their parents as we’ve shared it,” Miller wrote, “So we decided to share the costume with the kids at some of the local Children’s Hospitals.”
