Awesome One-Legged Guy Makes The Best Costumes: Just Announced This Year’s Halloween Outfit

Wyatt Otero October 26, 2016 October 26th, 2016

When Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer at nine years old, he was told he had a 50% chance of surviving. Despite chemotherapy, he lost a leg during treatment.

But by thirteen he was cancer free, and by sixteen was ski-racing. Today, Sundquist is a motivational speaker, famous on the social medias for his fantastically clever costumes that take full advantage of his disability.

“I’ve always dealt with the social discomfort of my disability by having a sense of humor,” Sundquist explains. “But now I’m more comfortable with who I am and what I look like, and I guess with these Halloween costumes you could even say that I celebrate what makes me different. Which may be either weird or refreshing, depending on your perspective.”

Check out his costumes, along with some of his commentary, below:

2010: “From Shrek. Not the gumdrop buttons!”

2012: “My wife Ashley suggested this idea, a reference to the movie ‘A Christmas Story’”

2013: “I was just at the zoo one time and I noticed that flamingos look like me doing a crutch handstand. So yeah”

2014: “A YouTube subscriber suggested it to me at VidCon. I thought it was appropriate since last year I was also named to the US Amputee World Cup Team”

2015: “It’s a classic amputee joke. This year I decided to anthropomorphize it”

“If my career as a motivational speaker doesn’t work out, I could probably get a job at IHOP”

2016: “Want to see my  newest Halloween costume? Be our guest”
