Paralympian Owns Halloween

I'm just going to straight up steal this article, because I love it so much.

You already know how much I love dressing in funky outfits.  And people that have a sense of humor.

Plus, I'm running the Monster Dash Half this weekend.  More on that next week, but for now let's just say, expect more great costuming.

In my opinion, these photos could not be more timely. 



Josh Sundquist is a Paralympic skier who lost his left leg to cancer at age 9. Many people in his position would feel sorry for themselves, and no one would blame Sundquist if he did after being dealt such a tough hand. Instead, the 29-year-old has a tremendous outlook on life. How do we know? Look no further than the Halloween costume he has put together this year.

For the past several years, Sundquist has been using the fact that he has only one leg to his advantage come Halloween. In addition to his hilarious flamingo costume, he also put together these masterpieces for past Halloweens.

More photos from his website:

And larger photos of his older Halloween costumes:



  1. Awesome pictures. My favorite is the one of the solemates where each friend gets half-price shoe benefits.

    Can't wait to see your costume for this weekend! I wish you a fabulous Monster Dash!!!

  2. These costumes are fantastic! I love when people find a way to be clever and work around limitations.I'm particularly impressed with how he switched it up with the flamingo!

    Have a great race this weekend!

  3. Have fun in your race this weekend!
