One Legged Man Josh Sundquist Makes the Best Halloween Costumes

At the young age of 9,  Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer.  At the time he was told he only had a 50/50 chance of living.  Despite having chemo, Josh lost his leg, but by thirteen he was cancer-free, and by sixteen, he was ski-racing.  Now Sundquist is a motivational speaker that’s become famous on social media for his clever, amputation-incorporating Halloween costumes.  He’s a perfect example who not only doesn’t let any setback get in his way, but he’s embraced his condition in a way that’s incredibly creative, inspiring, and flat out hilarious.

“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.”  The inspiration for his costumes are market in the below set of pictures.

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”

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

2018 – Blizzard (not Halloween but still awesome)
