Give Up Now, Amputee Josh Sundquist Just Won Halloween...Again

By Joanna Robinson | Miscellaneous | October 22, 2013 | Comments ()


The lovely Josh Sundquist has more sense of humor and love of life in his one leg than you have in your entire body. How do I know? Oh well last year he cooked up this amazing A Christmas Story costume:

And, as you can see, he’s somehow topped the leg lamp with this year’s effort.


How is he going to maintain that pose? Well I’m not sure if he intends to, but if anyone can, it’s Sundquist who, after losing his leg to bone cancer when he was 9, “became the only athlete in history to be named to both the Paralympic Ski Team and the US Amputee Soccer Team.” Dude’s fit, is what I’m saying. Here are some of his earlier efforts. This guy is the best.

    Its great that he can take his situation and laugh at it. Seems like the kind of guy everyone would love to have for a friend and neighbor.

    I am so impressed by the muscle strength the flamingo costume takes that I barely care there's a costume at all. Well done, sir. Well done.

    Dude is a riot and a genius when it comes to designing and executing costumes.

    It took me a solid 3 minutes looking at the flamingo picture to get it. Then I was blown away.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Yup - I thought it was a mutilated plastic flamingo and was wondering what was going on. It wasn't until I read "how long he can hold that pose" that it clicked.

  • simplysarah

    Same here.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Now that is how you make good of a bad situation. Good on him.
    I have a request for next year: J Walter Wetherman's cousin.
