The Walking Dead is a post-zombie apocalypse horror television series on AMC. People dressed in zombie costumes are a much-needed change from the overkill of vampire programming in the media. Zombies are much more fun. They are scary and gruesome but at the same time, oddly humorous. They are much more entertaining than the brooding, dark vampires. The Walking Dead fits the bill with a show that has horror, suspense and a creative insight into what happens to society when the zombie apocalypse happens.
The lead character in The Walking Dead is sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes. He wakes from a coma to find the sleepy Georgia town he once loved is now over run with Zombies, his wife and son are missing and everyone is frantic to escape. At every turn, he is faced with flesh eating, mindless monsters and helping to keep the peace among the survivors. The costumes include a police uniform to mimic Rick's signature look for men, teens and boys, outfits that give the illusion that you're decomposing from head to toe and other notable undead characters from the show.
Zombies are the hot new trend thanks to shows like this one. This genre is ideal for Halloween in so many ways. Firstly, zombies are one of the classic characters of Halloween. Scary ghouls that rise from the grave are what the holiday is all about. Secondly, these costumes can be individualized with make-up to make every costume unique. And last but not least, The Walking Dead costumes as well as all other zombie Halloween costumes give you lasting value because you can wear them for Halloween and then for any zombie event throughout the year such as a zombie walk or a costume party.
