Every Halloween, This One-Legged Guy Makes A Halloween Costume. He Just Revealed His Newest Idea

Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with cancer when he was nine years old, and was told he had a 50% chance of surviving. He lost his left leg, despite chemotherapy, 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.

“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.” He explains the inspiration for his costumes 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”
