One-Legged Man Ties His Disability Into the Best


As a *motivational speaker and comedian, Josh Sundquist has spent his life helping people *look on the bright side of life—and for years, his Halloween pranks have helped him to look at the funny side of having only one leg.

Sundquist, who lost his leg to a *rare form of bone cancer at age nine, has dreamed up some seriously humorous costumes. In 2012, he was the one-legged lamp from A Christmas Story; in 2015, he dressed up as the sign for the IHOP restaurant; and in 2016, he dressed up in gold to become Lumiere, the candle-holder from Beauty and the Beast.

This year, Sundquist is hopping around on Halloween dressed as the iconic Pixar lamp.

That all being said, *hilarious Halloween costumes aren’t Sundquist’s only talent—he has also published several books, attracted millions of views for his comedy on Youtube, and been a member of the US *Paralympic Ski Team and the US Amputee Soccer Team.

“In high school I wore a *prosthesis all the time and didn’t want anyone to *find out I was missing a leg,” Sundquist says 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.”

身為一位鼓舞人心的演說家及喜劇演員,Josh Sundquist終其一生幫助人們看見生命中的光明面,且在好幾年的萬聖節惡作劇中,他發現了自己獨腳有趣的一面。

在9歲時由於罕見的骨癌而失去一條腿的Sundquist設計了一些極其幽默的服裝。在2012年,他扮演「一個美國故事」中的獨腳檯燈,在2015年,他扮演了IHOP 餐廳的logo,而在2016年,他打扮一身金色變成美女與野獸中的燭台”Lumiere”



Sundquist 在他的網站上面說,在高中時,我總是戴著一隻義肢,而且不想被其他人發現我失去了一隻腳。但現在我對自己的身份和樣子更自在了,我想你甚至可以說,我用這些萬聖節服裝來展示自己的與眾不同。
