One-Legged Paralympian Josh Sundquist Reveals His Funniest Halloween Costume To Date

Josh Sundquist was just nine years old when he was diagnosed with cancer. He had a 50/50 shot at survival but miraculously, he was cancer-free by the time he was 13. Sadly, it came at the cost of having his leg amputated. 

Since then, Josh has gone on to have an incredible life as a Paralympic alpine skier, bestselling author and motivational speaker. The internet has fallen in love with him for a very particular reason though - every year, Josh has a truly awesome Halloween costume that works with his missing leg.

In 2011, he was the gingerbread man from "Shrek."

Then in 2012, he kicked it up a notch as a the iconic leg lamp from "A Christmas Story."


In 2013, he was inspired by a trip to the zoo. He noticed that the flamingos looked just like him doing a crutch handstand.

Serious props for the athleticism required to pull this one off!

Speaking of athletics, he went as a Foosball Man in 2014.

But this year's costume might just take the cake (er, pancake?) - he's dressed up as the sign for IHOP!

For our international readers, “IHOP” stands for International House Of Pancakes and is a popular chain of breakfast restaurants in the United States. In this case, it’s also a hilarious pun.


Sundquist says "It's a classic amputee joke. This year I decided to anthropomorphize it." Kudos to you Josh, this one is definitely one of your best.
