50 People Whose Disabilities Didn’t Stop Them From Enjoying Halloween To The Fullest (New Pics)

Adapting to life with a disability is never easy, and everyone needs to find their own ways of how to cope with limitations and overcome challenges.

But as you might’ve seen in our previous article, some people can summon the strength for these difficult tasks even in something as simple as a Halloween costume.

So with everything that we’ve been through this year, we at Bored Panda decided it’s time to revisit this wholesome topic and pay tribute to those who choose to celebrate their differences and use them as resources for especially creative costumes.

After all, these folks embody what we all so desperately need right now. Perseverance.

One of the people who has helped Halloween make tremendous leaps in inclusivity is US motivational speaker, comedian, writer, and former Paralympian, Josh Sundquist. Every year, he dresses up in a costume that makes use of his disability. In 2020, he transformed into Baby Groot from Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’

Josh said that his main ‘addiction’ in life is making people laugh. “As addictions go, this is a pretty good one. It has very few side effects. And it’s free (other than the annual cost of building a Halloween costume),” he told Bored Panda earlier.

Back in high school, Sundquist didn’t want anyone to find out that he was missing a leg, so he wore a prosthesis at all times. However, he eventually became more comfortable with who he is and what he looks like, and his Halloween costumes are a way to celebrate just that.

Sundquist also shared some advice for everyone who’s currently struggling with their own problems. “If you’re carrying a heavy burden, you have three options: you can hold on a little longer, you can find someone to share the load, or you can decide it’s time to let go. All three are equally valid. Wisdom is choosing the best one for this particular moment,” he said.

So far, Sundquist has embodied Gingy the Gingerbread Man from Shrek, a flamingo, a foosball player, Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast, Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, the incredibly famous Pixar lamp, and others. We can’t wait to see what he has planned for this year.

As for all of you who are still unsure about who or what to dress as for the spooky occasion, I hope these pictures will inspire you not to get rid of your unique attributes when developing your Halloween look but to accentuate them. Good luck!
