Eugene Porter, another apocalypse survivor and socially awkward coward from AMC’s The Walking Dead series. He has what can be politely described as a vintage look; by vintage, we mean severely outdated. Follow the costume guide for Eugene Porter, and we’ll have you ready to run and hide in no time flat!
For Eugene’s look, chose a distinct 70’s Disco Mullet Wig. Dress in a Windowpane-Check Dress Shirt coupled with a Light Khaki Twill Cargo Shorts and a Black Mesh Fishing Vest. A rugged pair of Hi-Tec Flagstaff Hiking Boots and an Airsoft Spring Pistol with Silencer will cap off your scared look.
If you’re partial to cosplaying characters with outdated hairstyles, then Eugene Porter is the perfect guy for you. This character starring in AMC’s The Walking Dead is the proud owner of a mullet. Take down those man buns, slick your hair back, and let the rest flow free. The rest of his outfit is a cinch. Add a basic long sleeve collared shirt with a fisherman’s vest over it, jeans, and a pair of boots. Then, you’re done. A local thrift shop may have affordable options for the costume.
Take your cosplay to the next level armed with a faux gun that can be purchased online or in a toy store. For group cosplay, your options are endless. We suggest Negan, the leader of the Saviors. You can also include Dwight, Sherry, or Laura. Be sure to check out the featured pics for more costume inspiration. Send us your best Eugene Porter look.
Eugene Porter is a high school science teacher being escorted to Washington, DC to provide the cure to the zombie pandemic. He doesn’t have a cure; he’s just a coward who thinks he’ll have a better chance of surviving in the nation’s capital. He has virtually no survival skills and hides behind his lie to get protection from the group. Socially awkward and eccentric, he gives off a creepy voyeuristic vibe to those around him.
Eugene is highly intelligent and proves his worth by building helpful tools like water filtration systems and batteries out of everyday materials. Once his lie is revealed, though it places a strain on his friendships, his value to the group outweighs the “crime.” He eventually becomes the official engineer of the group, visibly relieved to have survived. He enjoys books and shows an interest in video games, but rarely smiles. He later grows in courage with increased survival skill by learning to fight for himself.
