The Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes Mission: “Every child deserves a cool costume. Sometimes, though, that’s a little more challenging, especially for those in walkers and wheelchairs. That’s why Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes was born: to be able to create something truly unique and custom-made for these special kids … something that’s free of charge to the family. Thanks to a nationwide network of volunteers, sponsors and donors, we’re able to bring smiles to kids’ faces around the country and bring their imaginations to life.”

Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes was founded in 2015 by Lon Davis and his family. When Lon’s son Reese got his first wheelchair at age 3, Lon was inspired to create a custom Halloween costume. Each year, it got bigger and bigger, getting more attention and requests from other families … and Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes was born.

Since 2015, Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes has made more than 125 costumes for kids in states from Florida to Hawaii. The kids’ ages range from 3 to 18, with most of the requests coming from kids aged 6 to 12. This year, Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes has received 20 costume requests and will likely receive 15-20 more when they attend the Midwest Ability Summit in Kansas City on August 20.

Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes strives to build all requested costumes each year, though this is entirely dependent on the availability of funds and volunteers. Their costume waiting list can be found at

This year’s requests include a yellow jeep, Minions, and Trolls! Past costumes have ranged from Toy Story characters and modern-day superheroes to Star Wars-inspired and pretty princesses, and more. The 2022 costume build event will take place in Kansas City on September 17-18, at Hammerspace Community Workshop & Makerspace. And the costume reveal party will be held on Saturday, October 15, at Kansas City Young Audiences.

If Walkin’ & Rollin’ Costumes is able to raise a total of $25,000 this year, an anonymous donor has promised to match the donations -- which is why we recruited our Superhero Sidekicks.

That's where you're help comes in. We are looking for other Superheroes out there that are willing to sacrifice a few dollars to help bring these costumes to life for others in need. Cosplaying is all about community and to help create smiles on the faces of those who see us. Now it is time to create some more smiles on the faces of the kids that will be getting the next incredible builds

by Walkin & Rollin Costumes.

Any amount that helps reach our $2,000 goal makes you a true Superhero!
