If you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat, you’ve probably noticed one of my favorite shows is AMC’s The Walking Dead. Chris and I watch it religiously and the last couple seasons, I’ve started doing my own cosplay of some of our favorite characters, including of course… Daryl Dixon.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Red paint (to look like blood)
Rubber false ears
Old T-shirt (anything white or off-white color for the wings)
Sleeveless vest (faux leather or jean material) – you can cut off the sleeves yourself if needed
VEST: First I free-hand drew the wings in sharpie on an old t-shirt (see Daryl Dixon reference link above). Next I cut out the wings leaving about a 1/2 ” border around. Then glue the wings on the back of the vest. Last, drip, splatter or paint on drops of “blood”.
EAR NECKLACE: Use the red paint to make your ears as bloody and zombie-ish as you like! Punch a hole in the top of each ear and thread onto your jute rope. I like to make a double knot on either side of the ears to make sure they stay in place. Last, tie the ends in a knot to make a necklace. Make sure it’s big enough where you can easily take on and off.
