Halloween-Loving Man With One Leg Just Revealed His Best Ever Costume.
When Josh Sundquist was nine years old, he was diagnosed with cancer. He was only give a 50% chance for survival, but miraculously, he was cancer-free by the age of 13. Unfortunately, he didn't get away from cancer easily: His leg had to be amputated in the process.
Now an adult, he works as a motivational speaker and humorist, but he is particularly known for his hilarious approach to his Halloween costumes.
“I’ve always dealt with the social discomfort of my disability by having a sense of humor,” Sundquist said in an interview. “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 the costumes and their inspirations below.
In 2011, he played the unfortunate gingerbread man from Shrek.
In 2012, he played the iconic leg lamp from "A Christmas Story."
The inspiration for this 2013 came from Sundquist himself: “I was just at the zoo one time and I noticed that flamingos look like me doing a crutch handstand."
It might be his best -- and props to him for his incredible crutch acrobatics.
This 2014 foosball man costume was suggested to him by one of his YouTube subscribers.
And finally, his 2015 costume, about which Sundquist said, “It’s a classic amputee joke. This year I decided to anthropomorphize it.”
Sundquist's costumes speak to the power of positive thought and humor when it comes to life's most difficult challenges. They're also f**king hilarious.
