Halloween Costume Ideas for Disabled Guys (and Girls)
Ever since I compiled my list of costume ideas for bald guys, I started thinking about different options for other body types (and even for different ethnicities).  I'm missing my hair (and shave off what's left), so I like to take advantage of that.  This list attempts to incorporate wheelchairs and amputations into costumes.
