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.

His fierce getup turned plenty of heads at the Dragon Con convention in Georgia

He loves to weld!

He also created an alternate buggy version for conventions with more room

His costume often includes his fierce wargirl friend, Amy

Shiny and chrome!

Here he is when he’s not fighting warboys

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.

If life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave others life wondering how he did it!

I like how these people with disabilities make the best of everything and focus on the pros instead of feeling sad and I know they learn that lesson and that's why they are always so happy
