DARYL DIXON COSPLAY

diy1

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:
Fabric glue
Sharpie
Scissors
Red paint (to look like blood)
Rubber false ears
Jute rope
Paint brush
Hole punch
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

DIRECTIONS:
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.
