The Force is oh-so-strong in this incredible Star Wars costume. A father built his differently-abled daughter an AT-ST walker costume for his disabled daughter that attaches onto the wheels of her chair, making the legs move up and down as she rolled to appear as though the vehicle of the Galactic Empire is actually stomping along. Honestly, it’s one of the most impressive DIY costumes we’ve seen.
We’re not alone. The short video of the costume became an immediate hit on Reddit, where it has been upvoted more than 44,000 times in just 13 hours. Several commenters expressed their admiration for the dad’s hard work, noting little details like the incredible articulation of the AT-STs joints. We’re also big fans of the shading that makes it seem as though this AT-ST has seen some action on the battlefield.
We’re guessing that when this costume appeared on doorsteps, candy poured into the little girl’s pillowcase, no Jedi mind-trickery needed.
