Being in a wheelchair makes it hard for Tommy to have Halloween costumes that are special. So his father Hardy always makes a point to build elaborate costumes that fit his wheelchair. Trick-or-treaters are often in awe of his ensembles instead of looking him like he's in a wheelchair and thats his dad's whole goal. And since no major chains sell wheelchair-inclusive costumes, Hardy makes them himself.
This year, Tommy's costume is a U.S. Air Force SR-71 Blackbird jet. The costume is a homage to his grandparents, both air force veterans, who died this year. For less than $100, Hardy and his two friends spent 100 hours to create the jet out of wood.
A special tribute - photos of Hardy's mother and father in their Air Force uniforms sit on Tommy's dashboard.
