Man With One Leg Never Fails To Impress With His Amazingly Creative Halloween Costumes

"When life gives you lemons, make Halloween costumes."

When Josh Sundquist was nine years old, he was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and lost a leg. Since then, he's been cancer-free and able to live life to the fullest — not letting his amputation get in the way of anything. 

He's an accomplished author, motivational speaker, YouTube personality, paralympic athlete and, oh yeah, an expert Halloween costume dresser-up-er. 

That's right. For the past few years he's been coming up with brilliant Halloween costumes with the help of his assistant Lisa McLaughlin. Sundquist has dressed up as a half-eaten gingerbread man, an IHOP sign, leg lamp, foosball player and even a flamingo. 


His motto: "When life gives you lemons, make Halloween costumes."

"I’ve always dealt with the social discomfort of my disability by having a sense of humor," Sundquist writes on his Halloween FAQ page.

"But I used to be much more self-conscious. In high school I wore a prosthesis all the time and didn’t want anyone to find out I was missing a leg..."

"...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."
