This Paralympian With One Leg Came Up With Another Amazingly Creative Costume

See the "Halloween enthusiast's" latest look.

While many trick-or-treaters were dressed as Wonder Woman or one of the kids from Stranger Things this year, one man went for a classic character with a creative twist: Tigger from Winnie the Pooh. Paralymp ian Josh Sundquist utilized the fact that he has one leg to come up with a creative and custom-made costume, which, of course, he took for a spin at a trampoline park.


In a YouTube video, Sundquist — who is 33 years old, and does motivational speaking and comedy in addition to sports — tells viewers that after losing his left leg to childhood cancer (specifically, a rare bone cancer) at the age of 9, his parents bought him a trampoline to help him learn to balance on one leg. Now, as a self-described "Halloween enthusiast," Sundquist wows with impressive costumes each year since 2010.

Previous costumes — some for Halloween and some just for fun — have included a half-eaten gingerbread man, the leg-shaped lamp from A Christmas Story, a foosball figurine, a flamingo, an IHOP sign, Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast, a Dairy Queen Blizzard, and a fidget spinner. All of these are super clever but pale in comparison to Tigger — made even more adorable thanks to wife Ashley dressing as the honey-loving bear, Winnie the Pooh.

"I thought it was a hilarious idea," Sundquist told People about being Tigger, a concept that was born on Reddit. "The illusion is uncanny, the concept feels appropriate since I do a lot of hopping in real life, and, of course, Tigger is a character I loved growing up."

Leading up to Halloween this year, Sundquist took a trip down memory lane on social media and explained how previous costumes came to be. Check out the year-by-year breakdown:
