Halloween is an excuse to get extremely creative with absolutely no shame. Whether it be blood gushing from your eye socket, or a knife through your abdomen, the possibilities for gore and horror are endless.
This is also something that is especially true for Lauren Duck, who lost her arm in a freak accident. The 21-year-old, with an unparalleled sense of humor, has incorporated her extreme misfortune into her Halloween costume and it’s truly epic. Duck, from San Diego, has garnered an enormous following online as a result of her witty updates in which she uses the loss of her arm as the center of her jokes. Earlier this year, she went viral after her amusing Tinder bio was shared online. “Hands down the best catch on tinder,” her profile read, before listing her qualities: “face 10/10, body 9/10, personality 20/10, arms 1/2.” Not only that, but she had also listed her profession as an “arms dealer.” Duck lost her arm in a freak accident on June 29th, 2016, which she recalled for Buzzfeed News:
“I was going pretty fast on a moped and lost control of it, and I hit the median in the road. I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time.”
Whilst on the No Jumper podcast, Lauren explained how she was “going like 60 miles per hour, in like a 50 zone” when she swerved and was catapulted from her bike before “a sign sliced [her] arm, like, clean off. It flew like 30 feet, from my body.” Luckily, she was saved by a police officer on the scene who had just received tourniquet training. “I remember I asked the cop, ‘Hey, am I gonna die?’ and he said, ‘No, you’ll be fine,’” she said. Duck also recalled how doctors ALMOST saved her limb: “Doctors attached my arm back for, like, two months, but in the hospital during the surgery where they’re reconnecting the rest of my nerves they like turned me and I lost blood flow. They had to amputate it.” To begin with, she struggled with the jokes, finding it painful to see the funny side in her predicament. “For a while, I wasn’t okay with the jokes,” said Lauren, who now has over 100,000 followers on Twitter. “But then I started telling the jokes, and it’s kind of helped.” Her openness has garnered her thousands of fans online who are inspired by her strong personality. Many find it difficult to laugh at the jokes she makes, but Lauren says she is “completely comfortable with it.” So, don’t feel ashamed for laughing when you see her kickass Halloween costume… Lauren chose to style the iconic missing-arm-prank, however, in her case she wasn’t hiding her arm down her sleeve. Posing for a series of stunning pictures, Lauren proudly shows off her incredible humor and sensational body. “Nothing to see,” she casually captions the images, which have gone viral online. Speaking to UNILAD about the costume, Lauren simply said:
“I bought like this $4 effects makeup kit and some gauze and just threw it on last night. I walked through my living room last night with it on and my roommate had a friend over and they both almost had a heart attack. People seem to be a fan of the Halloween costume.”
“This is the first year I’ve done anything cool since losing an arm. I guess it was practice I was just trying it out. I’m going to do it on Halloween but I’m going to use better makeup.” Users online were quick to comment that the 21-year-old had “won Halloween”, with one commenter typing: “You’re incredible your beautiful and just a fantastic attitude.” Meanwhile others were slow to understand the costume, with several commenting that it was “photoshopped”. One oblivious commenter even wrote: “Makeup artists are getting good.” Lauren is trying to raise $50,000 for a prosthetic arm, so if you appreciated her humor then you can donate to her worthy cause via her GoFundMe page. “I am not ashamed of my injury and I’ve always embraced it but I’d like to have an arm back, any arm,” she writes on the page, which has currently raised $35,000 since being activated 14 months ago. We hope she reaches her goal, she certainly deserves it! Her strength through such a difficult time is insanely inspiring and we cannot wait to follow her journey! Inspiring stories are what makes this world continue to spin (well, sort of) and it doesn’t get much more inspirational than this amputee who adopted a dog, also missing a limb. If this doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, then you should probably go and get yourself checked out…
