Are you going as a character from ‘The Walking Dead’ for Halloween? Well, luckily for you Josh McDermitt has EXCLUSIVELY given HollywoodLife.com some major pro-tips.
Josh McDermitt, 37, doesn’t want to see any of The Walking Dead fans failing miserably at their costume attempts this year. Not only did he give HollywoodLife.com some EXCLUSIVE advice on how to have the most original costume from the show, he also shared the secrets to rocking the perfect mullet.
Wondering what’s missing from your Halloween costume? Well, if you’re going as a cast member from The Walking Dead, then here are some exciting tips straight from one of the professionals: Josh McDermitt, the man with the mullet behind Eugene.
“What I enjoy most is seeing the small, little details. You wanna be Rick? Let’s see Rick with the tape all over his face and the cuts from getting in a fight with Pete and flying through a window. Or let’s see Daryl with the poncho, or some other turn on these characters,” Josh explained to HollywoodLife.com. “So if I could offer up advice so you could win a costume contest at your Halloween party or at work, lets pay attention to the tiniest of details. Let’s find these smaller looks that these characters have portrayed on the show as opposed to the same looks we’re always seeing. And that’s just from a fans point of view myself.”
And if you’re going as Eugene? “He only wore a vest for a short period of time. Let’s find that tan jacket he’s been wearing.”
Josh Shares Pro-Tips For Growing The Perfect Mullet
Whether you’re going as Eugene for Halloween, Walker Stalker, or you just really respect and admire his hair game… Josh has the best advice for how to grow your own mullet. And yes, because we here at HollywoodLife.com get to see Josh in person so often, we can confirm that his mullet is real — and it’s on point.
“It starts with the shampoo,” Josh told HollywoodLife.com with a laugh. “If you can find like some great hotel room shampoo to keep those luscious locks split at the ends. If you can keep that thing clean but as greasy as possible, and I know that’s probably a contradiction, but the mullet will look fantastic. I think when it’s too clean and too bushy, it just doesn’t look good. It kind of has to be stringy, if you can work up a sweat… that’s the way to go.”
And there you have it! Halloween costume advice and mullet care tips. Good luck, TWD fans!
