No Sew Cosplay: Jane from The Walking Dead

Listen… when the shit hits the fan, ’cause it always does, remember that you can make it on your own.

Jacket: Jane is wearing what looks like a light almost orange, light brown leather jacket. Fortunately, you don’t have to get a real leather jacket for this cosplay, especially because you probably would want to mark on it the black stylistic lines in order for you to stand out as the character. So, instead, opt for a faux leather jacket like this one (top picture). I also liked this one (bottom picture), which has a lot more character and the zipped pockets on the chest, but is a lot more expensive.

Undershirt: It appears that Jane is wearing a grey undershirt with a crew neck. Pretty simple! You could probably get away with a different color if you never take your jacket off, as most of the time Jane has her jacket zipped all the way up.

Pants: It seems that Jane has a pretty neutral color taste. Her jeans are actually just dark grey jeans. Nothing really impressive at all, which makes this cosplay a lot easier.

Knife Holster: Though it’s not brown, this knife holster is pretty reasonable in price. Make sure that you read up on the rules of a convention when it comes to weapons. This video I found shows you how to make a cosplay knife as well.

Boots: Jane is wearing mid calf boots a lot like these ones here. I find it difficult to get a lot of detail on them, because they almost blend in to her pants in most of the shots of her.

Makeup: I wasn’t able to find a cosplay video of Jane, but using the same video for Clementine, you could just adjust and use the same methods. You could easily use a permanent marker for the lines on the clothing, but keep in mind that you probably won’t be able to get this out of any of the clothing. If you want to look like the version of Jane where she is covered in zombie guts, try using some stage blood. If you’re looking just for a grimy look, you could probably get that with dark brown eye-shadow.

  1. Love this article, it’s ALWAYS interesting to see what people do for cosplay. As a little tip with weapons for conventions, the general rule is that the weapon itself needs to be unrealistic. Ergo, if something can really be used as a weapon, it’s not allowed. Furthermore, if you do have a weapon that could be considered realistic looking, you should usually have an orange tip and keep it in the hilt until you do a picture.

    Also, be careful –WHERE– you go to a convention. Some cons can actually take a weapon off you if it doesn’t meet their guidelines and destroy it! Just be extra careful about where you go and read up in advance :)

    Other than that: No-Sew Cosplay away!! :D

      • Yeah, I know some cons in the US definitely do this… And I’ve heard of one here in the UK that does it. When you mentioned to do your research on conventions, I nodded as if I was a bobblehead, I tell ya! :P

      • It really must depend on the place, because I’ve seen some conventions that let weapons in that look like they’d blow up the entire convention if it were real, hahah! Lmao, I just pictured one of those Hawaiian hulu skirt bobble heads XD
