If you’re planning to attend any horror or comic book conventions this summer here’s a fun drinking game you can play (if you’re over 21 and brave enough to smuggle booze past security, that is!): Take a shot every time you see a cosplayer dressed as Negan. You’ll be blitzed in less than an hour. Even if you only take a shot when you see female Negans, I doubt you’ll make it to closing time before passing out!
Since his first appearance on The Walking Dead during the Season 6 finale, Negan (played by Jeffery Dean Morgan) has been a fan favorite, a character celebrated by cosplayers worldwide. Halloween 2016 could have been called “The Night of a Million Negans”!
Part of the reason Negan is such a go-to get-up is because it’s a relatively easy look to achieve: Biker pants, black leather jacket, red scarf and you’re 90% of the way there. Add some stubble (or make-up) to complete the look. Of course, Negan isn’t only known for his black & red greaser style: No Negan is complete without his/her Lucille.
I’m talking, of course, about the barb-wire wrapped bat Negan is always gleefully twirling, usually resting on his shoulder like a parrot adorning the arm of a pirate. While it’s not terribly difficult to wrap a bat with a barbwire simulacrum for cosplay purposes, how cool would it be to have an exact replica of THE Lucille of your very own?
AMC is having a contest and the prize is exactly that: A chance to win your own Lucille to love and hold! Of course, you’ll need to have some sharp artistic skills for a chance to score this beauty. “Submit you TWD Fan Art for a Chance to Win a Life-Sized Lucille!”
You must be over 18 and there’s a laundry list of rules for you to peruse, but you’ve got until March 17th to enter! Got the chops? Then what are you waiting for? Read all about it and submit your entry, HERE.
