95 Times People With Disabilities Won Halloween With Their Awesome Sense Of Humor (New Pics)

Adapting to life with a disability is never easy, and everyone needs to find their own ways of how to cope with limitations and overcome challenges.

But as you might’ve seen in our previous article, some people can summon the strength for these difficult tasks even in something as simple as a Halloween costume.

So with everything that we’ve been through this year, we at Bored Panda decided it’s time to revisit this wholesome topic and pay tribute to those who choose to celebrate their differences and use them as resources for especially creative costumes.

After all, these folks embody what we all so desperately need right now. Perseverance.
