Halloween is tomorrow, which means our Instagram feeds are about to become an endless scroll of Jokers, sexy cats, and miscellaneous Marvel characters. But Paralympian Josh Sundquist is about to surpass all our expectations.
Thee motivational speaker, comedian, American Paralympian, and bestselling author took to YouTube this week to debut his 2019 Halloween costume: the literal Pixar lamp.
Sundquist didn’t stop there, either. He also showed off his various costumes over the years, including a half-eaten gingerbread man, the sexy lamp from Toy Story, a flamingo, a Christmas tree, Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast, Tigger from Winnie the Pooh and the genie from Aladdin.
The best part about Sundquist’s epic Halloween costumes is that each year, he creatively incorporates his one leg that wasn’t amputated. Sundquist lost his left leg to Ewing’s sarcoma at age nine, but that didn’t stop him from pursuing his dreams.
Six years after surviving cancer and having his leg amputated, Sundquist started ski racing. He eventually became part of the United States Paralympic Ski Team and is now a motivational speaker and bestselling author.
For years, the reigning champ of Halloween has been Heidi Klum. Since 2000, Klum has been pulling out all the stops for Halloween, rocking up to events in elaborate costumes and over-the-top prosthetics. Over the years, Klum has dressed as ‘Eve and the forbidden fruit,’ a ‘sexy crow,’ a skinless human body, and old woman and last year, her and hubby Tom Kaulitz rocked up as real life Shrek and Princess Fiona.
No shade, but I think Josh Sundquist may have just beaten Klum at her own game. You’ve got to give it to both of these Halloween enthusiasts, they’re really giving the holiday a red hot go. Only time will tell what Sundquist will do next year.
