About the Michonne Character

Michonne, played by Danai Gurira in "The Walking Dead," is a survivor of the zombie apocalypse who quickly became a fan-favorite due to her strength, resilience, and signature katana. Her look is distinct yet simple, making it an ideal DIY costume choice.


Key Elements of a DIY Michonne Costume

Even in an apocalypse, Michonne has a consistent look. Here are the key elements you'll need for your Michonne costume:

  1. Dreadlock Wig: Michonne's signature dreadlocks are a must for your costume.
  2. Headband: Often, Michonne wears a headband around her dreadlocks.
  3. Vest and Jeans: A typical Michonne outfit is an army green vest over a dark shirt with slim-fitting jeans.
  4. Katana: Michonne wouldn’t be Michonne without her katana.
  5. Boots: The costume should be completed with a pair of rugged, dark-colored boots, perfect for any apocalyptic situation.

Creating Your DIY Michonne Costume

  1. Dreadlock Wig: Any dark, dreadlock wig will do. This can be found online or at a party or costume store.
  2. Headband: Over your wig, a dark-colored bandana or cloth strip can serve as the headband.
  3. Vest and Jeans: For this, dig into your wardrobe for a dark tank top and pair it up with an army green cargo vest or flannel shirt. Combine it with slim-fit jeans in a darker wash.
  4. Katana: Plenty of costume shops sell toy katanas, or you can pick up a cardboard and aluminum foil to craft one at home.
  5. Boots: To finish the base costume, put on a pair of dark, sturdy boots for that post-apocalyptic vibe.

Finishing Touches on Your Michonne Costume

For an even more authentic Michonne costume, consider:

  1. Zombie Leashes: Create a leash from braided brown cording, remembering to lighten the tips to enhance the look of 'worn leather'.
  2. Muddy Smears: Smudge some dark makeup on your face and clothes to give the impression of having survived a grungy outdoor environment.
  3. Slim Bag: A dark slim bag slung over your shoulder will add to Michonne's survivor look.

Your DIY Michonne costume is ready! Channel the strength and resilience of the fierce "The Walking Dead" character and make waves at your next costumed event.
