Doctor Who thing of the day: nerd mom makes awesome Doctor costume for her handicapped son

Best fanac ever? Could be. Blogger Reese Dixon has a young son with cerebral palsy, but the fact that he gets around in a wheelchair didn’t stop her from creating for him an awesome Halloween costume last year:
wheelchair TARDIS

But perhaps Dixon’s greatest ingenuity comes in explaining how she remade an adult-size thrift-store tweed blazer to fit her then three-year-old. Click over to her blog for detailed directions that, I suspect, will thrill other parents of the littlest Doctor Who fans.

Via Blastr.

    I shared the link to this page on Facebook this morning with the following bit that sums up my thoughts on this:
    My kid can be difficult at times, but this mom deserves some major props. Jackson is a smart and healthy toddler, and we are thankful everyday for that. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to care for a child with a severe disability, and this kid’s mom clearly goes way beyond just taking care of him. This woman embodies the wonderful, limitless spirit of the Doctor and proves herself a true hero for other parents and for her son. Together they prove that disability doesn’t have to disable you and that even wheelchairs can be cool.
