Sundquist unveiled the team behind his latest costume on Halloween itself, sorta giving us the Heidi Klum treatment and showing the folks who helped him make the Genie a reality for 2018. He told People why this costume has a special meaning to him:
“When I was a child, I wanted to be a Disney animator when I grew up. At age nine I lost my leg to cancer,” Sundquist said. “A few weeks later I got a letter from an animator at Walt Disney who happened to be a double amputee. His name was Broose Johnson. Make-A-Wish later gave me the chance to meet him.” Johnson was one of the animators behind some of the most iconic Disney’s characters, such as Sebastian the Crab from The Little Mermaid, Simba from The Lion King, and Tuke the moose from Brother Bear.
“The letter Broose sent me as a child had a drawing of Genie, which was one of the characters he animated. So this year I wanted to dress as Genie as a tribute to Broose, to Make-A-Wish, and, of course, to Robin Williams.”
