Rick Grimes
The Walking Dead

Cosplayer: Leadmill

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Poster Pull-Out feature in MVM Magazine

23rd September 2013: Upgraded Badges Decided to replace the cheap badges I am already using, with a set of much improved badges with a more accurate look and shape.

14th August 2013: Handcuff Holder Sourced a screen accurate Basketweave Handcuff Holder.

14th August 2013: Belt Keepers To keep Duty Belt secured properly to trouser belt I sourced some accurate belt keepers.

14th August 2013: Basketweave Duty Belt Decided to upgrade Ricks belt to a more accurate one using a Basketweave Duty Belt with nickel buckle.

19th May 2012: Uniform Test Hat was darkened by Alias and patches attached. Worn together to see how it all looks.

8th May 2012: Badges Attached Shirt arrived so I then affixed collar insgnia, name badge, and county shield. Patches need to be attached then it's done.

6th April 2012: Basketweave Belt Basketweave security belt was sourced from same site as shirt and trousers.

1st April 2012: Hat Test Reusing the gold campaign cord from my Supertroopers project, I test fitted that and the badge to the hat to get an idea of how they look together. I'm happy with the result. However the band on the hat will need removing, and the hat itself darkening a shade with fabric spray. It fits perfectly too.

1st April 2012: Sherriff Badges Due to the complexity of scratch building something as intricate as the sherriff badges, I opted to buy some ready made ones that were pretty spot on.

23rd March 2012: Sherriff Jacket Bought the type of jacket Rick uses during Season 1. Tricky to find and wasn't cheap....

When it arrive patches will be sewn on to the arms.

23rd March 2012: Sherriff Shirt Shirt is a US police Class A shirt in two tone Tan/Brown. I bought an identical shirt from the same website 3 years ago for my Supertroopers project.

20th March 2012: Hat Hat is a Cattleman cowboy type. Once it arrives will see how close colour is and darken it if needed using fabric spray.

19th March 2012: King County Patches Ordered 4 screen accurate patches, 2 for the shirt and 2 for the jacket.

Personally I prefer comics Rick look but I am looking forward to seeing the photos of this. I'd like to cosplay comics Andrea one day myself.
