See this amputee's amazing Halloween costume as Tigger

An amputee isn't letting anything hold him back from having a hilarious Halloween costume.

Josh Sundquist, who had his left leg amputated after being diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer at the age of 9, is a pro at creating novel costumes designed not only to give his followers a laugh, but also encourage others toward body positivity.

After transforming into Lumière from "Beauty and the Beast" last year, Sundquist has dressed up as another Disney character this year -- Tigger from the iconic Winnie the Pooh series.

A video of his costume has already gone viral on Instagram with more than 78,000 views.

Sundquist, 33, told ABC News that he got the inspiration to become Tigger thanks to a post on Reddit.

"I saw it and said, 'That is such a good idea. How have I never thought of being Tigger?'" he recalled. "He hops and he bounces, which is what I do when I’m not using my crutches. And he’s such a fantastic character from all of our childhoods."

The motivational speaker said it cost approximately $1,000 to transform into Tigger. After getting a made-to-order mask, he worked with seamstress Ivy Vining to piece several two-legged Tigger costumes together.

In the past, Sundquist has also gone viral for dressing up as an iHop sign, a flamingo and a gingerbread man.
