My goal is to have a great time impersonating one of my favorite Characters, Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln on the hit AMC Series The Walking Dead.

My journey, as Mr. Grimes, started with a 5 O’clock shadow that has grown into a full time adventure….. and Beard. Everything really took flight when I won the Nation Wide Rick Grimes Look A Like Contest Sponsored by Walker Stalker Con and really got to see the true enthusiasm and support of my Cosplay. I was soon after getting invited to conventions but I did not feel, just standing in front of a back drop, was enough to share with everyone and decided to build a photo booth set that could add to my Cosplay presentation. The only issue was I had 7 days until the next convention, so I dove in head first and in 7 days with the help of a great friend I had a Mock up of the iconic Prison scene “Cosplay Style”, including a 16′ prison guard tower, in my living room, kitchen, dining room etc… It was everywhere! But it was done! We made it to the convention with a professional photography team, an incredible Zombie and an awesome staff, we made it happen… full on!!! with A LOT of Poly foam, PVC and Duct tape!
