Paralympic skier Josh Sundquist added foosball player to his list of creative Halloween costumes this year.

Sundquist, who had his left leg amputated as a child, spent the last few years (at least) coming up with interesting costumes.

In 2010, he dressed as a partially eaten gingerbread man for Halloween. In 2012, he was the leg lamp from “A Christmas Story.” In 2013, he was a flamingo.

Here’s a video of how this year’s costume came about.

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 and author.
