The Walking Dead premiered on Halloween night in 2010. Throughout the past six seasons, viewers have loved and lost a myriad of characters, and are anxiously awaiting the Season 7 premiere to see which of the beloved members is the next to meet his or her maker, courtesty of Negan's Lucille. The Walking Dead is a series about the zombie apocalypse, so there are no limits to its sadness and gore. But, the talented writers have made sure to include a few laughs along the way. Some of this lightheartedness has inspired the creative and sometimes funny Walking Dead costumes you see at conventions throughout the country, that would double as great Halloween costumes.
It feels like an eternity between seasons, so fans like me keep busy scouring the 'net for memes, cast interviews, podcasts, and hilarious Walking Dead-inspired episodes of Bad Lip Reading to get their fix. There is also plenty of time to re-watch the season and analyze every minute detail. The writers have to keep on their toes, because viewers will dissect an episode, figure out mysteries, and post potential spoilers online. (See: Glenn and the dumpster.)
If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, check out these hilarious costumes inspired by everyone's favorite zombie show, and maybe you'll happen to find your Halloween costume in the process.
