Description (Brief)
White terry cloth robe with matching belt has torn areas and areas soaked with red 'blood'. This robe was worn by Addy Miller as Summer, the first 'walker' who appears in the first scene of the pilot episode of the television series, The Walking Dead. Based on the comic books by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead deals with a post-apocalyptic society overrun with “walkers.” The show follows Rick Grimes, a sheriff who awakes from a coma to find only a handful of people alive and a lot of decaying undead who want to eat him. Played by Andrew Lincoln, Rick eventually finds his wife and son living with a group of survivors near Atlanta, Georgia. It is here the group must learn to survive in a fallen society, among the undead and roving bands of survivors who prove to be more dangerous than the famished walkers.
