Disabled Student Turns His Wheelchair Into Epic Mad Max Cosplay

Ben Carpenter, an engineering student and cosplayer from Florida, just created an amazing Mad Max wheelchair cosplay that will ensure him an everlasting spot in Valhalla.

Carpenter, who was born with spinal muscular atrophy, perfectly imitates the movie’s early scenes, where Mad Max is completely at the mercy of a warboy named Nux. The chariot attached to the back of his wheelchair, which can be switched with a buggy more in-line with a movie, was manned by a fierce fellow cosplay enthusiast named Amy.

Forget that. I quote something I saw on a forum board once. "If life gives you lemons, throw them back and demand chocolate." No idea who said it first, but it's so awesome, and fits this quite well.
