How to Dress Like Eugene Porter
Eugene’s hair is dark brown and pushed back into a very wavy mullet. You can use a wig, or if you have shoulder-length hair you can use hairspray to do a mullet of your very own! He also has small brown eyebrows and sideburns. If you don’t, you can draw them on using a brown eyebrow pencil or plan your costume ahead a few weeks and grow them out yourself.
Eugene often wears dark clothes that are somewhat baggy and boring. That’s good news for you, because you can pick out your own oversized dark clothes at any store with your own preferences. For extra authenticity, use Halloween paint to add blood and moss to the clothing so you’ll look like you just stepped out of a brutal apocalypse! Use scissors to cut holes in the sleeves and legs so you’ll fit in with the rustic scenery of the iconic television show.
Any fan of The Walking Dead knows that Eugene is a science whiz, and it often gives him an inflated sense of ego and poor judgement. Accessorize your costume this Halloween by picking up some plastic beakers and test tubes to carry with you, or even a pair of lab safety goggles and rubber gloves. Don’t forget a plastic gun so you’ll be prepared if the zombies show up to take a bite of your fingers!
Keep Warm This Halloween
The great thing about Eugene’s baggy clothes is that under your costume you can wear multiple layers, which is very useful when it gets to be that nail-biting cold weather on Halloween. You can wear a thinner dark long-sleeved shirt under a baggy black sweatshirt, for instance. Mix and match and make the costume your own!
