This Mom Brilliantly Transformed Her Daughter's Wheelchair Into a Cinderella Carriage for Halloween
You have to see this Michigan mom's ingenious Cinderella costume and carriage design for her daughter who has an undiagnosed muscular condition.
A mom from Comstock Park, Michigan named Tiffany Breen is making headlines for the brilliant way she helped her 3-year-old daughter Roslyn dress up as Cinderella this Halloween. Her little girl absolutely loves Disney -- and princesses in particular! -- "so Cinderella was definitely something we knew she wanted to be," the proud mom tells West Michigan's Fox 17.
Roslyn was born with an undiagnosed muscular condition that prevents her from walking or sitting up, so she uses a wheelchair -- which Breen was determined to transform into a magical carriage for her daughter. Digging into tubs of Christmas decorations, Breen says she "grabbed tinsel and ribbon and got some lights that work on a battery." She also used home supplies, hula hoops and zip ties to create an eye-catching display for her little princess.

"I really just wanted her to stand out for positive reasons and draw attention because her costume is amazing, not because she’s in a wheelchair," Breen tells Parents.com.

The innovative mom got her wish when she brought her daughter to a local "Zoo Goes Boo" event, and the 3-year-old excited the crowd with her regal arrival.
