There's a pretty special boy in Oregon who has one of the coolest Halloween costumes around.

Daniel Shaughnessy is massive Darth Vader fan and force was definitely with him - and his wheelchair - thanks to a pretty awesome non-profit.

The 8-year-old is battling brain and spinal cancer, so the folks from Magic Wheelchair turned his wheelchair into Vader's TIE Fighter.

The feat took about 200 hours to create.

"There were definite tears! Definite tears. And being able to see the look on his face when they took the cover off, and he got to see it, was amazing!" said Daniel's mom, Jessica Thomas.

Perhaps the one difference between Daniel and the famous star wars Sith Lord was the big smile he had as his costume was unveiled.
