Daryl Dixon Costume

Daryl Dixon is the main character in AMC’s horror series the walking dead. Created by Frank Darabont, Charles H Eglee, and Jack LoGiudice, Daryl Dixon is an expert hunter and fearless when it comes to his efficient killing of walkers. Daryl Dixon was only supposed to be a recurring character but due to the overwhelmingly positive response from the fans and critics, Daryl was promoted to series regular.

Daryl Dixon has a few costumes throughout the seasons, but the most prominent costume is the angel wings black leather jacket costume. For this Daryl Dixon costume, I will include a lethal and non-lethal version of this costume as the lethal version if you want to stay authentic to the costume will be quite expensive but looks absolutely amazing. I have provided links to all the elements needed to complete this costume below with descriptive reasons behind the choices.

 

Beige shirt

Beige shirt

The Daryl Dixon costume shirt, I went with a beige long sleeve shirt as it was a close match to the colour of the one Daryl Dixon uses. To make it more authentic, I would cut the long sleeves off and I would dirty it up. If you have some rough sandpaper lying around, give the shirt a once over until it looks torn and worn.

This is the centrepiece of the Daryl Dixon costume. The angel wings logo is embroidered on the back of the waistcoat. It’s not cheap but once you’re finished with it, I don’t think it would be hard to sell off again, especially around Halloween when costumes are in demand.

Faded black jeans (cut 2 knees and right thigh)

Hunting knife

Hunting knife

This Daryl has a hunting knife that is attached to the right-hand side of his belt. The hunting knife I choose was a timber rattle bowie knife. It is relatively the same size as the knife seen on the Daryl Dixon costume and it also includes a brown leather sheath.

Stryker crossbow

The crossbow Daryl Dixon uses it the same brand as the one I found. The crossbow is made by a company called stryker. They are quite expensive, but it does make the costume stand out. I personally wouldn’t get it, primarily because of the price and if I were to choose, the jacket is more important in my opinion.

Brown shoes

Brown shoes

For the brown shoes, I went with some dc’s as they are a close match to the type of shoes Daryl uses. If you have an old brown pair of shoes that are well worn might work much better than these new ones.
