The 20-year-old was born with spinal muscular atrophy and uses a wheelchair to get around, so when it came to dressing up for the Comic Con he needed to get creative.
He dressed as Tom Hardy’s character in the movie Mad Max: Fury Road, during the part where he’s chained to the front of a futuristic motorcycle car-type vehicle. But the true transformation came from the fact that Carpenter modelled his wheelchair to look like he actually was strapped to said vehicle like Hardy.
From the movie:
He utilized a standing wheelchair and attached a self-made cart, which he and a friend made for fun a year ago, to the back. He and his entourage (who dressed up as the women his character traveled with) won best group cosplay — and many hearts.
