Steve Murphy is the DEA agent in Bogota, Columbia on a mission to stop the most notorious drug lord in history—Pablo Escobar. Murphy wasn’t always a part of the Drug Enforcement Administration though. He started out as a police officer catching kids smoking marijuana, having no idea he would one day be tasked to bring down the kingpin transporting cocaine illegally into the United States.
The Netflix show, Narcos, also tells the story of Murphy’s own struggles. He met his wife, Connie, when a group of his friends thought they would play a prank on him and say she was checking him out. The tables turned and Murphy ended up marrying the blonde from the bar. His attempt to separate his work with the DEA from his personal life proved to be more a challenge than he anticipated. This is Steve Murphy costume is a pretty serious cosplay!
