A cosplay of the Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon displays a fan’s craftsmanship in mask-making through an creepy Norman Reedus mask.
A fan with talent has captured the look of Norman Reedus, star of The Walking Dead in a series photographs wearing a shockingly authentic mask.
The actor had a black long-sleeved t-shirt with a leather vest and the character’s iconic attire. To make it even more impressive the outfit comes with a fake crossbow, which is similar to Daryl’s famous weapon from the original series. The cosplayer also plans to reuse the Reedus mask to make the actor look like Sam Porter Bridges from the popular video game Death Stranding.

Daryl Dixon’s French Connection
Following the conclusion of The Walking Dead ended its 11-season run in November of last year, Reedus geared up to reprise Daryl Dixon in his very own self-titled spinoff of AMC’s long-running horror series, which is still currently in production in France. The show is created by Scott M. Gimple and Angela who have stepped in as co-creators and executive producers. Alongside him are franchise newcomers Clemence Poesy and Adam Nagaitis, who are being considered for their respective roles as female lead Isabelle as well as nightclub owner Quinn. The first pictures of the set of Daryl Dixon offered viewers the first glimpse at Poesy’s Isabelle and teased her role in Daryl’s story arc.
The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon will feature Daryl in a whole new setting as he finds himself in France with no memory of how and why the circumstances led him to Europe. In a previous interview, Reedus revealed how his show will begin a new chapter in The Walking Dead franchise. Reedus said that “You learn a lot when you run an entire show over the course of 12 years. There are some paths one has to take because of the large audience.” “We don’t really have that in the United States. It’s a new beginning for us, with all the things we loved doing, and many more.”
