Paul “Jesus” Monroe is the antithesis of most of the characters in The Walking Dead television series. With a nickname like “Jesus,” it’s not hard to see why. Follow his cosplay guide, and we’ll have you walking on water at your next cosplay convention, not exactly, but you get the point. The costume starts with a Grey Knit Hat over a Long Brown Hair Wig, Brown Sideburns, and a Long Brown Goatee.
For his clothing, choose a Leather Trench Coat and a Dickies Diamond Quilted Nylon Vest. We accessorized the look with a 3 Grommet Holes Leather Belt, Dorfman Pacific Leather Gloves, and a rugged pair of Black Combat Boots.
By far the saintliest of characters from the comic and television series, The Walking Dead, is Paul “Jesus” Monroe. He is the definition of a nice guy bad ass. He’s also super easy to cosplay. You or someone you know probably already have nearly all the pieces to get his look. If you have a beard, you’re more than half-way there. Those not blessed with long locks and a serviceable beard can always pick one up at a local costume shop or even online.
Add a knit hat along with Paul’s trademark layered—look, coat, vest, shirt, and jeans. You can always accessorize with a long blade. For group cosplay, you can naturally include his BFFs Rick Grimes or Maggie Green and Carl Grimes. And Walkers are always a welcome sight if you’re into that sort of thing. Be sure to check out the featured cosplay pics for even more style ideas.
Paul is genuinely a good guy. A highly rational thinker and adviser, he places a high regard for justice and equality. Initially mistrusted by Rick, he earns his trust and eventually considers him a close friend. Paul is logical and quietly humorous and is the first to speak out against injustice. He actively suggests tasks be accomplished for the protection of the group. As a gifted tactician, he works with others within the group for the greater good and survival of his people.
He earned the nickname “Jesus” because of his beard and penchant for peacemaking, but that doesn’t make him any less dangerous. He is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, and his ability to escape is unmatched. He fights against the Saviors and manages to save Rick Grimes and his people against a group 20 men. Paul firmly believes that Rick is the one to lead them into the future, and he’s willing to fight and kill to see him succeed.
