Halloween isn’t just a trick-or-treat holiday for Paralympic skier Josh Sundquist. It’s a chance to show off his incredible costume skills.
Sundquist was diagnosed with bone cancer at age 9 and given a 50 percent chance of living, according to his personal website. He was given a 50 percent chance of living, spent a year doing chemotherapy, had his left leg amputated and was declared cured by 13.
Three years later, he took up skiing and eventually made the 2006 U.S. Paralympic Team.
Now, he’s a motivational speaker, author and quite the creative mind.
In 2010, he dressed as a partially eaten gingerbread man for Halloween.
In 2012, he was the leg lamp from “A Christmas Story.”
Sundquist may have outdone himself with this year’s flamingo costume. Take a look:
