Some people seem to have an issue with cosplayers that step outside of gender boundaries, which is kind of silly. After all cosplay is all about the desire of the fan to dress up like who they want. Granted, with some roles it can seem a little odd but it’s still impressive when anyone takes the time and effort to put as much as they can into a costume. Negan from The Walking Dead has become quite the icon in cosplay recently, and both men and women have gotten into the act with great enthusiasm. That’s why when a woman decides to dress as Negan it’s just straight up fun to see. Plus, with the lengths that some people go to, such as emulating even little nuances that the show has decided to put in, it’s even more impressive.
Really, who would argue that this woman has done anything wrong with her costume. She’s got it down so pat that she’s got every piece where it should be and every nuance of Negan down. She might want to smile a little wider just to get the maniacal side down but that’s easy to work with.
Even her stride seems to emulate the dreaded leader of the Saviors. I tell you it’s just amazing what some cosplayers do and how they choose to go about it when they pick a character. Lucille looks like she’s ready to mess up somebody’s day in a big hurry.
Anyone that has an issue with gender roles being broken for cosplay purposes needs to take a chill pill and sit back to enjoy the show. Personally I love seeing the costumes and what people do with the designs. Some of them stay true to the character which is just awesome, while some add little details in here and there to make the costume their own in some way.
Looking at the grey in her hair you can easily imagine that she did this to come off as just a little more authentic. It’s definitely preferable to shaving her hair close and tight like Negan’s since the look seems like it wouldn’t come off quite as well. She’s done this right as far as anyone should be concerned and the overall effect is just great.
Well, time for batting practice. I bet this brings back a lot of memories for fans that were devastated when Abraham and then Glenn bought the farm. There was so much speculation that it would be any of the others simply because of this or that and the other thing that had happened throughout the preceding seasons. But despite the unexpected death of Abraham, Glenn was one that people had been expecting for some time. Right here she’s obviously swinging away, letting Lucille have her fill as she reminds the survivors just whose rules they’re living under now. And you can almost imagine that she might back off a step and yell “Takin’ it like a champ!”
Oh yeah, I get into the cosplay through storytelling, and it’s a LOT of fun.
