This One-Legged Guy Makes Epic Halloween Costumes Every Year


Meet Josh Sundquist. At nine years old, Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer and despite treatments of chemotherapy, he lost his left leg. After becoming cancer free by the time he was 13 years-old, Sundquist was ski-racing by the time he was 16. Since then, he has become a motivational speaker, a comedian, author, and makes clever amputation-incorporated Halloween costumes.

These Halloween costumes are his way to celebrate that he his different, but overall, they are such an inspiration to us all. Here are some of his best costumes from Halloween’s past.

Flamingo On The Loose

I had to rub my eyes twice, but this is pretty damn cool. If you have ever been to the zoo, you’ve come across flamingos, and if you have a good eye, you’ll notice that flamingos actually look like Sundquist doing a handstand.

Breakfast, Anyone?

IHOP better step up and offer Josh free breakfast for an entire year. I mean, if he ever decides to step back from being a comedian as well as a motivational speaker, he could likely have this as a full-time job. Also, this was his first couples costume as a married man.


DQ Unofficial Mascot

It is a legitimate excuse to dress up as a tasty treat to help out those in need. Seriously, if things don’t workout at IHOP, then Dairy Queen should strongly consider giving Josh free blizzards for an entire year. But for now, we’re happy to see him show support by becoming Dairy Queen’s unofficial mascot.

I haven’t seen the real-life version of Beauty and the Beast, but Josh dressing up as Lumière is absolutely incredible. Can you imagine how many dishes he can get done? On top of that, this would be a great couples costume, which Josh and his wife did as she dressed up as Belle.
