Disguise reveals additions to adaptive Disney costumes

Published on: 19th August 2021

The adaptive range includes Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and Beyond, offering kid’s costumes and wheelchair cover sets.

New items have been added to the previously available assortment that launched last year. In addition to adaptive costumes inspired by Disney Princess and Pixar characters that were created in collaboration with Disguise, new items include a Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Adaptive Costume, a Star Wars: The Mandalorian Adaptive Costume and Star Wars: The Mandalorian Wheelchair Cover Set. These adaptive features allow fans who use wheelchairs and have other accessibility needs to transform into some of their favourite characters across the Disney portfolio.

“I’m thrilled that through the expansion of our Adaptive Roleplay collection, we can further connect our iconic franchises with fans and families worldwide through thoughtful design that allows everyone to take part in their favourite stories and worlds,” said Stephanie Young, president of Consumer Products, Games and Publishing.

The costumes are designed with stretch fabric that opens at the back to allow for more accessible dressing. The adaptive line is open in the rear and has longer length inseams for wheelchair-friendly wear. The costumes also have flap openings on the front with self-stick fabric closure to accommodate tube access. The wheelchair cover sets fit most standard wheelchairs with 24-inch wheels and come with supportive plastic piping pieces for added stability and long self-stick fabric strips to help keep the pieces in place. It is advised that the wheelchair is operated by a helper when the cover set is attached.

A spokesperson from Disguise said the range is slated to be available in the UK from May 2022.
