Working on a zombie contingency plan can be pretty fun, but trying to figure out how you’d actually react in a zombie apocalypse might just be your worst nightmare. Fortunately for us, The Walking Dead came along in book and television form to help us figure out what the heck we’d do. And while I’d love to think I’d scrape together the skills to survive, I have a feeling I’d need some help and quickly need to find a team of good-looking strangers to form a bond with. Here’s where Daryl Dixon comes in. While originally an unhelpful pain in the ass, over the course of 5 seasons, Daryl has become one of the most important members of the team, as well as an audience favorite. Really, people just love him. So while many of the characters on The Walking Dead have earned my respect, Daryl is who I want with me in any zombie-related situation. He’s also inspired many fans to demonstrate their love of the character through cosplay. So, channel this badass Daryl Dixon cosplay the next time you run into a zombie in that abandoned barn you have in your back yard and you might be a little more likely to survive.
