About Walter "Heisenberg" White

Walter White—high school chemistry teacher on the outside and drug kingpin on the inside. He’s one of the rare characters that goes through an unbelievably remarkable, yet evil, transformation. And the freaky part? We all can relate to him!

His story starts as a high-school chemistry teacher. But it’s when he’s diagnosed with cancer that the real story begins. His cancer motivates him to form a partnership with Jesse Pinkman, a former student of his. They together create and distribute the finest and purest meth on the planet. In fact, it’s so good, Walter White proudly claims it to be the “Coca-Cola” of meth. It’s irreplaceable.

But, things take a turn for the worst, as does with everyone who betrays their family. His character is great to cosplay because of that. While you can’t (and shouldn’t) become a drug lord, you can act his part with this unmistakable cosplay!
