Default Where can I get a loaner wheelchair?

OK, so I have a DC & Marvel Superhero fancy dress party coming up. Most of the 'decent' characters have gone (we're trying not to duplicate) and I jokingly said I would go as Dr X..... so now I need to find a wheelchair....

Any ideas?

Which is rare for me.... as generally I hate the hassle of getting dressed up. This event is quite good though. It's my mates birthday pi$$ up and its quite nice as he invites back the same crowd (+/- one or two), limits it to 20 folk, rents a villa for an after party and everyone generally puts the effort in. Have been to the last 6 years.

Also, it means I get to sit down all day!

Next on the list is finding stuff to make a Cerebro helmet / hat thing....

Sounds awesome. I'm no fancy dress fan but we threw some epic parties for birthdays in the UK (my housemate and I were a few days apart). People had to make the effort or they'd be the odd one out.

Enjoy.

Sounds like every party my parents host.

Truth be told, around 90% of the parties I go to back home too.

What's so special about this one?

Oh, you mean people came wearing white...trousers?
