6 Great 'The Walking Dead' Cosplays That Will Have You Shambling Back For More

Daryl Dixon

Did you know that Daryl Dixon wasn't a character in the original comic series? He was created purposefully for the show. The actor who plays Daryl, Norman Reedus, has originally auditioned for the role of Merle Dixon (which ultimately went to Michael Rooker) but the writers were so impressed with him that they created a part for him and so Merle's younger brother Daryl appeared.

Daryl has quite a lot of iconic appearances but none more recognizable than his angel wing leather waistcoat. The above cosplayer is Deviant Aoki-Lifestream from Russia. A lot of work has gone into really making the outfit instantly recognizable as Daryl complete with the waistcoat and his weapon of choice, the crossbow.
