Every Halloween Josh Sundquist Makes An Epic Costume, And He Just Revealed His 2019 Costume.


Paralympian. Motivational speaker. Comedian. Author. Academic. Lamp! Wait
, what? Josh Sundquist is at it again, this year dressing up as the infamous Pixar jumping lamp for Halloween. When it comes to Halloween, having only one leg is a huge boon to Sundquist, not something that gets in the way. He uses his one-leggedness as an advantage to make interesting, unique, and hilarious costumes. These bring a smile to our faces and we think they keep getting better every year. As you’ve probably already guessed, we love what he does and can’t wait to see what he comes up with next year!. At just 9-years-old Josh Sundquist lost his leg to cancer. Through his tenacity and a good sense of humour, he has managed to always make the most of life with a disability especially on Halloween. How many of us would have the guts to dress up as the Pixar lamp? When push comes to shove, not a lot of us. But Sundquist went for it. He’s full of confidence, a desire to inspire others and make them laugh. He lost his leg to cancer at the young age of just 9 years old, but this hasn’t slowed him down one bit. Virginia-born Sundquist turned his disability into something that helps him give other people purpose in life. What’s more, the 35-year-old is known far and wide. First as an American athlete, having become a Paralympic ski racer. Later trading it for motivational speaking, comedy, and writing.“In high school, I wore a prosthesis all the time and didn’t want anyone to find out I was missing a leg,” Sundquist revealed on his website. “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.” That kind of determination and acceptance of yourself doesn’t grow on trees and we’ve all got a lot to learn from him.
