Josh Sundquist is well-known as a motivational speaker who recovered from his loss of a leg to cancer at age 9 to ski in the Paralympics. Today he's roundly winning the global contest for the best Halloween costume. It's inspired by the infamous leg lamp from holiday classic "A Christmas Story," which featured an ornery dad obsessed with his fringed table lamp in the shape of a leg. "I had to shave my leg, but I think it was worth it," Sundquist wrote on his Facebook page. This isn't Sundquist's first Halloween rodeo: He won similar applause after going as "Amputee Gingerbread Man" in 2010.
