One-Legged Paralympian’s Hilarious Halloween Costume
A sense of humor is definitely not something Josh Sundquist lacks. A one-legged Paralympian known for his hilarious Halloween getups that utilize his disability has outdone himself with an amazing flamingo costume.
The Paralympic ski racer uses his athleticism in this year’s costume. When he inverts his body, his leg looks just like the long neck and curved bill and head of the bird. Using a bright pink body suit, similarly colored crutches, and a slipper made to look like the tropical bird’s head, Sundquist does a striking impression of a flamingo. But only when he flips upside down!
In 2010, Sundquist made his national debut as a Halloween champion as a half-eaten gingerbread man. In 2012, he lit up Halloween as the famous leg lamp from the movie A Christmas Story.
In addition to his Sundquist Halloween costumes, Josh’s trademark is his remarkable story of survival and triumph over disability, one he goes into a length on his website.
Diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer at age 9, Sunquist was given a 50 percent chance of survival.
But he survived and after losing his leg to amputation he’s put his disability to good use: he’s now a motivational speaker, a member of the US Amputee Soccer Team, bestselling author, YouTube personality, and founder of LessThanFour.org, the world’s largest social networking website for amputees.
While his latest costume pales in comparison to these achievements, it still manages to be just as uplifting.
