Wheelchair cosplay suggestions?

During the summer I will probably have surgery to repair my malformed ribcage, this will not hinder me from attending Anime Expo. I figured it would be easier on me to rent a wheelchair to get around the con, less stress on my ribs.

Here's the problem: lack of wheelchair bound characters. I want to work with it because that's a lot cooler than being a gimp version of whoever. Any ideas? Here's what I have so far;

* Acro (Phoenix Wright)
* Rotom Gajinka Lawnmower Form (Pokemon)

Rufus Shinra From Advent Children =] The one that has a sheet draped over him the entire time because of Geostigma~ Might not be the most flattering cosplay ever, but it's the first thing that comes to my mind ^^;

edit: Lol, got double-beat to the punch D:

Hmm... Teo from Avatar: the Last Airbender? It's not a typical wheelchair, but I don't think anyone would get nitpicky with that.

Also, here's hoping for your safe recovery. =)

Professor X? He is the only one I know in a wheel chair besides FFVII dood. I am pretty sure there was a topic about this before. Try searching and there may be some more ideas in the thread.

There's Nunnally from Code Geass and she has a few outfits/wheelchair designs to choose from.

There is Mariko from Elfen Lied, although I'm having a hard time finding pics of her.

if you wanna go way retro there's Chip from the G1 Tranformers series. Or there's Oracle from DC Comics. Those are the only two rght now aside from what has already been said.

Ohh man you're so lucky!<3 I've always wanted to be able to do a wheelchair cosplay.. Then again, the person I want to be is also missing a leg... (and an eye...) Bikko! Though that's probably not your style.. >_>

Yeesss, it's always nice to see someone knows who Bikko is! > Yeah, if no one else goes for it, I'll definately give it a try soon. I have a few ideas about getting the whole leg issue. And the eye-- intense make-up..

but anyway, another thing I'd thought I'd mention for the thread's poster.. You would probably make a really good Nunnally!

I can't think of another character for you, but I just wanted to say that going for a wheel chair for the con is a great idea. Definatly do it, if you stress out bones like that they dont heal as well. (speaking from experience)
You could always just cosplay as whoever and just be like "Oh my cosplay is of this person after they fell down a flight of stairs/ got mauled by a bear/ fell off a cliff, etc"
