Everyday Cosplay: Carl Grimes

You guys, ever since I had to bow out of recapping The Walking Dead for The Mary Sue, my Walking Dead life has been a mess. I am currently two–yes, TWO–weeks behind on TWD. I just don’t even know what to do with myself right now, because I know the last two episodes were intense, and remaining out of the loop is just a bit too much for me right now.


So while I am painfully behind on TWD, I decided to do what I could to keep the walker-fever alive with some CORAL-inspired everyday cosplay. I even included a fancy purse that I found on Etsy that straps around your thigh. And, no spoilers in this post, but I included some sunglasses since Carl’s all about the…um…eyewear these days. Trust me, in this outfit, you’ll NEVER be able to stay in the house*.

Everyday Carl Grimes



Are you caught up on The Walking Dead? Without giving spoilers, are you enjoying this half of the season so far? Let me know in the comments!

*Okay, I know Carl is way beyond his “where is Carl, I told you to stay in the house, Carl” days, but it will still be one of my favorite TWD inside jokes ever–second only to Rick Grimes dad jokes

  1. Wow I would totally wear some of these.
    (and I actually don’t like Carl… don’t tell anyone lol)
    I literally LOL’d though about the “CORALLLL” thing. Gets me everytime haha.

    1. I can’t NOT refer to Carl as CORALL. It always gets awkward when I am talking about him to non-TWD fans, too, because they’re like, “Who the hell is Coral?” And I can’t ever decide how I feel about Carl. I definitely really have enjoyed watching his character develop to a silly child to a pretty capable zombie fighter, but we haven’t gotten to really see who Carl is outside of a tiny walker-hunter. So I’m definitely not in the “Kill Carl Already” camp anymore, but he’s no Michonne…
