One-Legged Man's Halloween Outfit As Lumiere Is Epic
This dude can be our guest at any Halloween party.
World, meet Josh Sundquist.
He's a motivational speaker, a former Paralympian and the guy who will make your costume this year look weak as shit. Seriously, your 'fit is gonna look like this compared to his:
While he lost his left leg to cancer, that hasn't stopped him from winning at life and dominating the dress-up game when October 31 comes rolling around (in its spooky grave) each year.
Last year, we chronicled the elaborate costumes that Josh has worn throughout the years, from an hopping IHOP sign in 2015...
...to my personal favorite: a pink flamingo.
THAT EYE IS BORING DIRECTLY INTO MY SOUL... STOP LOOKING AT ME, BIRD.
Seriously, Josh gives Heidi Klum a run for her money as Halloween's most creatively dressed. You hear that, Heidi?
STEP UP YOUR GAME.
Now, I've got to say that although Josh has rocked some pretty stellar outfits in the past, this year's costume is out of a goddamn fairy tale.
No, really, he's going as Lumiere, the horny candelabra that's obsessed with a feather duster in "Beauty and the Beast."
SWIGGITY SWOOTY COMIN' FOR THAT FEATHER-DUSTIN' BOOTY.
Lumiere is the 2-D version of Mr. Steal Yo' Girl.
You can take a behind-the-scenes look at how Josh got suited up into this very faithfully recreated outfit, built by his assistant Lisa, in the video below.
In describing his choice of costume for 2016, Josh made it clear that 2016 was the year to be Lumiere, saying,
He's Disney's most famous monopod. (Well, other than Ariel). So I've always wanted to try this costume. And as you probably know, there's a live-action Beauty and the Beast coming out next year. It's unclear from the photos I've seen if Lumiere will still be a hopping monopod or if the new Lumiere (played by Ewan McGregor) will have bipedal locomotion. If the new movie changes the way we imagine Lumiere, this could be the final Halloween in which I could dress like him. So it had to be Lumiere in 2016.
Well done, Josh. I'm just really thankful that you didn't dress up as a clown in honor of 2016's creepiest trend.
