The Walking Dead Rick Grimes Costume Review!

I can not believe it is almost Halloween already! I love this time of year, it is one of my favorites, mostly because of how happy it makes (all three) of my boys! They all love scary stuff, candy, and most importantly, zombies.. So, when Tater decided that he wanted to be Rick from The Walking Dead this year, I was thrilled! I couldn't have picked a better costume than this one! 

Usually when I am picking boy's  Halloween costumesI am a little bit wary, since so many of them seem to be crappy and not very well made. But, from the time we received this costume, I knew that wasn't going to be the case with this one! 

The first thing I noticed was that this is an officially licensed costume, AMC approved! That made me really happy, that we weren't getting some cheap knockoff! I knew it was really going to look like Rick! I am really impressed with the quality of this costume. I ordered the Large size, which is an 8/10 I believe. It was a little tight on Tater, but let's face the facts, Tater is not a small guy anymore, and it is hard to find something that his belly does NOT stick out of LOL. It actually fits him pretty snugly, but since it is a police officer uniform, it looks like it is made that way. 

The fabric is actually really durable for a costume, I am used to junk costumes that rip apart the second you touch them. The costume comes with everything you need: pants, sheriff shirt, policeman belt with billy club, gun, walkie talkie, and of course, the all important Rick Grimes sheriff hat! I was really happy that it came with all that it did, I expected to have to buy the belt and accessories separately. The only thing I am going to have to find is a bloody axe, which is proving to be difficult to find around here. Apparently, bloody axes are all the rage, because they are all sold out!

Tater love loves LOVES this costume! I am going to be posting a picture of him later today in it, but he is asleep right now. Wait until you see how cute he looks! If you watch the show, I really think he looks a lot like Carl in this outfit, especially with his freckle face and his sheriff hat! His favorite part is that the name tag on the shirt says "Grimes", he loved that little touch! I do wish that I could have talked Beanie into being a little zombie this year so that their costumes would coordinate, but alas, I think that dream is never going to be. I have wished that for the last two years... Anyhow, we are thrilled with our Rick Grimes costume this year! If you are looking for quality kid's costumes this year, Anytime Costumes has you covered! A big thanks to our friends there who allowed us the chance to review yet another of their great costumes! 

If you are a zombie going trick or treating this year, watch out! Rick Grimes is after you!

we received a complimentary costume in order to conduct this review. However, all thoughts and opinions are 100 percent our own!
