My whole family watches The Walking Dead and we’re pretty die-hard fans. You guys have probably seen my DIY cosplay costumes for Daryl Dixon (ear necklace and wings vest) and Carol (in disguise as one of the Wolves).
I used parts of my Daryl cosplay along with cards from our Walking Dead game, creepy cloth, leaves from our front lawn and some packing material to create the post-apocalyptic feel of the Walking Dead world.
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.
Now if you ask most parents if they’d let their child paint their favorite movie characters on the walls of their room… pretty sure they’d laugh followed by a “heck no” type of response. Not my parents. For some reason when I was fifteen and asked if I could paint the likes of Jack, Sally, Lock, Shock and Barrel on the walls of my bedroom, they actually said YES!
