What little kid isn’t dreaming of being a superhero this year for Halloween? There are so many options to choose from, from Wonder Woman to Iron Man to Black Panther, that some kids may find it hard to pick just one.
But for one 8-year-old, the answer is simple. Chase’s favorite superhero is his big brother, Cody Galloway, a police officer.
“Law enforcement, it’s a tough gig, and it’s cool to see my family support me. Chase wants to dress up as a cop,” Cody told Fox 10 Phoenix.
Chase’s mother, Kelli, says that Chase “likes to be like his big brother,” so this year, the little boy will be dressing up as a member of the force. Chase, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, will also be driving a decked out police cruiser on Halloween.
“It’s all so fun! Halloween, Christmas, Easter, we all just have a blast, but we like to incorporate Chase in everything we do,” Kelli told the news outlet. “He can’t always say what he likes, but he lets us know when he’s happy or when he’s uncomfortable, and he loves to dress up and go trick-or-treating.”
So where did Chase find his awesome duds for the spookiest night of the year? Kelli’s best friend, Brenda Speezacatena — who owns Kid-to-Kid, a store that buys clothing children have outgrown and resells them — just happened to have the perfect costume come into her store.
“We had the police costume here at Kid-to-Kid, and then [Chase’s big sister] made the cop car for him,” said Speezacatena. “So it just turned out amazing. So it’s just fun seeing him get so much pleasure out of little things.”
