Aron Ralston from 127 Hours

Aron Ralston (portrayed by James Franco in the film 127 Hours) is an avid outdoor enthusiast and hiker best known for amputating his own arm to survive a hiking accident.  In 2003, Ralston’s right arm was trapped by a boulder.  After several days without food or water, Ralston removed his arm in order to extricate himself and seek help.  The events of his ordeal were turned into a movie directed by Danny Boyle in 2010.  This costume could be recreated with your own hiking gear if you have it, just don’t forget to bring your trusty multi-tool pocketknife for emergencies!
