Kiley McClay, a 15-year-old sophomore at Centralia High School, is a big fan of the Netflix show Stranger Things. Now, she can show off her fandom in a very big way.
At the Emerald City Comic Con, this past weekend, Magic Wheelchair, a nonprofit organization that builds epic costumes for kids and young adults with disabilities, gave McClay a Stranger Things-themed wheelchair costume. VFX Foam, out of Ferndale, built a giant demogorgon and attached it to her chair.
"This is super awesome," McClay said. "It really looks cool and it actually looks like a demogorgon."
McClay, who has spinal muscular atrophy, showed off the costume to the Comic Con audience. The crowd roared with approval.
Magic Wheelchair was started by a Salem, Oregon family in 2015. This year the organization plans to team up with enough volunteers to transform 100 wheelchairs into epic costumes.
