With the huge success of The Walking Dead it is hardly any surprise that a Carl Grimes costume, one of the most popular characters, is a hugely popular choice. A Carl Grimes costume is hugely popular for the likes of cosplay, halloween costumes, and fancy dress. It is also hugely popular costume for families if someone was to wear a Rick Grimes costume and another intended to wear a Lori Grimes costume.
Carl Grimes Costume – The Walking Dead
Making your own Carl Grimes costume is relatively simple. He tends to dress wearing simple jeans combined with a t-shirt and a button down shirt open at the front. He also is often seen wearing Rick Grimes sheriff hat and, in the later seasons of The Walking Dead, wears an eye patch to cover the loss of his eye. Here is everything you will need to make your own Carl Grimes costume.
Carl Grimes Eye Patch

The eye patch worn by Carl Grimes is over his injured right eye and consists of a bandage around his hear which hold in place a dressing which he has pressed against his right eye.
Carl Grimes Sheriff’s Hat
|Another vitally important part of making your own Carl Grimes costume is the sheriffs hat that he is often seen wearing.
The sheriffs hat will make your Carl Grimes costume instantly recognisable.
You can buy replicas of the sheriffs hat worn by Carl Grimes quite cheaply.
Carl Grimes Shirt
|Carl Grimes is mostly seen wearing a checkered shirt which he wears open at the front with a t-shirt underneath.
For this part of your Carl Grimes costume wear a long sleeved shirt, unbuttoned at the front, and choose a shirt that has a checkered pattern to it.
Carl Grimes T-Shirt
|Carl Grimes wears a t-shirt in most of the episodes of The Walking Dead.
Sometimes he wears a t-shirt with buttons on the collar but other times he wears a simple conventional t-shirt.
There is no definite rule for your Carl Grimes costume other than wear a t-shirt that is plain with no logos.
Carl Grimes Jeans

For your Carl Grimes costume a simple pair of denim jeans is what you should wear to copy the characters style and look.
Carl Grimes Boots
|Throughout the seasons of The Walking Dead, Carl Grimes has always been seen wearing boots that are very similar in style.
For your Carl Grimes costume we would suggest wearing a pair of hiking boots that look very similar to the ones he wears in the TV show. There is no specific band of boots to wear.
Carl Grimes Gun Holster
|Carl Grimes is often seen wearing a gun holster. The gun holster that we would recommend you use for your Carl Grimes costume should be leg holsters like the ones worn by the character.
He appears to wear a leg holster on each leg but you could quite easily use just one.
Carl Grimes Gun
|Throughout The Walking Dead, Carl Grimes is seen using many different types of guns.
For your Carl Grimes costume we would recommend that you use a replica or toy hand gun which you can store in your gun holster.
We would obviously never recommend that you use a real firearm for a costume.
