Michonne’s leather vest is an iconic part of her dress. Whilst her headscarf may change, she may don a different t-shirt or she may swap her combats for jeans, her leather vest remains and is instantly recognisable as pure Michonne. The simple design belies the quality of the leather fabric from which the vest is made and the ease at which Michonne can move freely whist in battle. With practical pockets and a zipped front, Michonne can be up and running with katana in hand while others are still thinking about it. This beautifully crafted vest is too good to keep just for Halloween or cosplay and we will feel sure it will become as iconic a part of your wardrobe as it has for Michonne. Well worth the investment and currently at a bargain price.

As The Walking Dead’s number one katana bearing warrior, Michonne wears boots that are both practical and stylish. When suddenly faced with an adversary, her combat boots provide the ideal footwear for standing her ground in a fight. Michonne’s choice of studded leather worn in casual style reveals her individual attitude laced with a strong helping of tough!

Michonne CostumeThe boots that Michonne wears are called “Traffic II Fold-over Boot by Penny Loves Kenny” which you can find at Gilt.com or Amazon.com but they sell out fast!
The Combat Boots we recommend are an ideal pair to complement any Michonne Costume. These Refresh Terra-08 Women’s Studded Foldover Cuff Combat Boots also make a great choice and come in a range of sizes.
These boots also come in a brown tan which you can either co-ordinate nicely with the tan gloves or get a bottle of black shoe dye and transform them!

You can quickly turn a pair of plain black boots into a pair of fold over combats that would give Michonne a run for her money.
Any plain black combats will do but long length boots are best. Fold over the legs down to the ankles to create the casual, fold over style worn by Michonne. Next get your hands on a pack of 100 pice pack of Hotfix Iron On, quarter inch Flat Back Silver Glue on Pyramid Studs. Simply affix these pyramid studs in the style shown above and create your own, authentic looking pair of Michonne classic combats!

Michonne Wig Description

This is a great wig for role playing Michonne whether it is for a convention, Halloween party, or if you are getting into character for the next round of The Walking Dead series! Check out our Michonne Wig post for full details.

Michonne Hair Extensions

There are of course alternatives to buying a wig. If you are no stranger to adding braids to your own hair this is a great way to pull of the Michonne look which continues long after Halloween. Simply invest in a group pack of hair extensions, a latch crochet hook and then check out this awesome video that will give you a step by step guide on how to add extensions to your own hair.

Create your own Michonne Wig

For those who want the convenience of a removable wig but want the expert finish of a handmade, authentic looking Michonne hairstyle we recommend investing in a group pack of hair extensions and a corn row cap. The extensions can be attached either by using a strong needle and thread, or alternatively with a latch crochet hook . This excellent video will give you a step by step guide on how you can easily create your own, high quality, handmade Michonne wig.. We would recommend also investing in a mannequin head to keep the cap rigid whilst working.
If you are at all handy at crafts, this is an excellent choice, as you will end up with a quality wig that is tailor made to your own standard and specification. Whichever method you choose, you should end up with a great looking wig that really does add the crowning glory to your Michonne Costume, sure to get heads turning, and not just from zombies!

When selecting a bandana for Michonne, we have chosed this scarf due to it’s vivid Aztec pattern and vibrant colours. Although Michonne is prone to change her headscarf, she does favour aztec, tribal type prints. At 71 inches, you have a lovely length of fabric with which to work. Tie it round and leave a trailing scarf for a dramatic look, or cut it and fashion it into a headband. It is great to hide any untidy bits around the forehead if you are wearing a wig, and instantly transforms your long black dreadlocks into that classic Michonne portrait.

Slip your hands into these genuine leather, fingerless gloves and you won’t just feel yourself transforming into Michonne, you may never go back! These gloves have been designed with practicality in mind. The leather means your hands can breath and the natural ‘give’ of the material means they are comfortable. It is easy to see why Michonne would have chosen such a practical design of glove for wielding her katana. When you’re not being Michonne, and you have to put the katana down, you’ll still find yourself wearing them all the time, we’re sure of it!

These Cargo Pants are an ideal choice for putting together a Michonne costume as they sport a flattering cut and have just the right amount of stretch in them to maintain their shape yet stay comfortable. The snug design is the look Michonne chooses but for those fast moves and swift ripostes, she also needs clothes that have a bit of flexibility and can move with her.

Michonne Katana Prop Description

The only part missing from your Michonne costume now is the weapon that defines this character most, her trusty katana sword. When it comes to slaying zombies, a sword really is one of the most practical choices. No bullets, no need to reload, light to carry, swift and effective.
There are a number of katana swords available. The Walking Dead MC-WD001WS Officially Licensed Samurai Sword is a collector’s treasure and is ideal for display purposes. Siwode’s Walking Dead Michonne’s Katana Sword, T10 Clay_tempered, 40-Inchs is a genuinely deadly weapon that should be respected and treated with caution! Whilst it might be a great defence weapon for those camping trips in the wild, you’ll find it less than ideal as a costume accessory as comic conventions confiscate lethal weapons at the door!
The katana we have selected to complete your Michonne Costume is a prop replica that has been designed for costume and role playing. Check out Walking Dead Katana Roleplay Weapon – Michonne Cosplay Sword for more details.
