The internet is a strange place, especially when it comes to TV show merchandise. Dedicated The Walking Dead fans are no exception the rule, creating some truly *erm* unique homages to the show. As the wait for Season 7 of The Walking Dead continues, we have the perfect way to pass the time. If you are planning your very own 'Welcome to the Apocalypse' party, we have some merchandise that you just have to pick up. All of the items below are available to buy now on Etsy, so if the end of the world is coming, we might as well spend our money on something worthwhile.
If you are kicking back for a TWD marathon, are your feet are well equipped to take on the walkers? Whether you're pottering around the house or storming Woodbury, you'll look like the ultimate fan, as each piece is unique. Just make sure you keep them clean, so they don't get to 'Grimesy'!
Whilst this may not be an official LEGO product, we can't help but hope The Waking Dead line goes into full production. Using official LEGO parts with custom-made additions, you can play with your favourite cast-members until your heart's content. Including Daryl and his bike, Michonne and her 'friends', and Morgan with his stick, Star Wars LEGO ain't got jack on TWD.
One thing there isn't enough of in the world is Daryl Dixons! For whatever reason, if you aren't happy with your plain old .I.D. you can imitate TWD's grisly biker. Probably not endorsed by Norman Reedus, we are waiting for the market to be flooded by underage Dixons getting into clubs - help the trend!
Thi is the kind of stuff that Mythbusters was famed for using - take aim and let rip. This life-size human target actually bleeds when shot and is sure to liven up any garden party. If you are auditioning for the 2020 Olympics, this could be the perfect archery target. Take out the crossbow and get practising, walkers are coming!
Wrap up on those cold winter nights with a Daryl Dixon poncho (you can sit there stroking his I.D. as you do so). Rick's Sheriff hat aside, there's no piece of TWD clothing that is more iconic than Daryl's poncho. With the classic Navajo design, the Etsy creators claim that this fabric comes from the exact same place that TWD's crew got their poncho - so it must be the real deal.
Fresh outta bashing skulls, Jeffrey Dean Morgan gets his own faithful homage in gnome form. If you want to scare the neighbours, why not add the looming threat of Negan to your homestead? There is only one available (and it has been for a couple of weeks), so if you can ignore the hefty £118 price tag, grab it whilst you can. Made from cast stone and hand painted, Negan gnome comes complete with bloody Lucille bat - batter up!
Holidays are coming, holidays are coming. With Christmas just around the corner, who doesn't want to jazz up their living room with a severed head? If you really want to scare the kiddies this season, hang this 3-inch head from the branches of your tree and wait for walkers to drop down the chimney. We are pretty sure this is the kind of thing the Governor would have had in his house.
Even at the end of the world, there is always time for a cuppa. Apparently starting as just a joke, Teapocalypse has evolved into an actual viable business! They currently produce 11 'remedy' teas, including ones for resuscitation, broken bones, and even ones for dogs. We are slightly sceptical whether Teapocalypse actually works, but with one named "Hershel's Gift", we are right on board.
If you are struggling for ideas for Halloween (or in the bedroom), take inspiration from this retro pin up apron. Part cosplay, part kitchen-wear, the outfit comes complete with 'Grimes' name-badge. You can play Mrs. Grimes all night long, or simply tackle the queues at the next Comic-Con.
How often have you been at home and completely forgotten where you are going? If you get lost on the way to the bathroom, fear not, Etsy has the sign to point you in the right direction. Recycled from used fencing, you can turn your home into the ultimate tribute to the show - just steer clear of Terminus!
This is one piece of Merle-chandise that crosses that line between amazing/macabre. Stuffed and dressed in handmade clothing, this tiny critter would certainly add a talking point to your mantelpiece. The Merle-mouse is post-mutilation, so even includes Merle's signature knife arm. Take the dastardly Dixon brother home today!
Finally, for the ladies of the apocalypse - menstrual cycles wait for no man. Forget taxidermy mice, the weirdest item on this list of TWD merchandise is definitely this reusable cloth sanitary pad. Pulled straight from the pages of Robert Kirkman; when it comes to that time of the month, who doesn't want the gnarled faces of the undead wrapped around your sensitive areas? Be prepared...there will be blood!

So, it looks like you had better get adding to that Christmas list then! Dodgy artwork, pinball machines and replica Daryl leather jackets, The Walking Dead merchandise is certainly weird and wonderful. Smash open that Glenn-head piggy bank with a miniature Lucille bat, and get spending those pennies. O.K. internet, that is enough for today- I have a tiny Rick mouse to stuff!
