Each Halloween, we find ourselves facing the same ol' dilemma: how do we pull together a freakin' fabulous costume while still putting forth the least amount of effort? It's not always easy, and it typically involves ears, but this year, we've come up with a solution that's just as simple as it is brilliant. It's called being a walker from The Walking Dead.
