Anyone can dawn the mask or costume of an iconic character for Halloween, but it takes true dedication to really embody your new identity. What does it take to really 'be' Ron Burgundy? How do you convince someone you are the 'Last Action Hero'? Here is my list of five iconic characters that require more than just an outfit to pull off. Have a happy, safe, and hilarious Halloween!

    Charlie Harper


    If you want winning! You could do a pin off of it and goes as zombie Charlie Harper seeing as Two and a Half Men writers killed off Charlie Sheen's character. There is even an entire website dedicated to selling Charlie Harper shirts and it's called... charlieharpershirts.com

    Any Character played by Arnold Schwarzenegger


    Simply put, you get to show off your muscles, talk with a funny accent, and carry a gun or a baby!

    Watch the video to the left for 160 of Arnold's best lines. 'It's not a tumor!'

    Sue Johanson


    People may think you're just an old lady but you'll be the most vulgar, sexually knowledgeable old lady at the party. If you've never heard of Sue Johanson, watch the video to the left and get properly educated.

    Iron Man/Tony Stark


    You must have a very keen sense of humor if you're to dress as billionaire super hero, Tony Stark. I loved all of Iron Man's witter dialogue and obnoxiously big ego. This is your free card to be a misogynistic, narcissistic, rich prick that everyone will find irresistible. This character is rated advanced  because you'll be improvising all your lines. Here is a clip for you to practice:

    The trailer with some of Tony's best lines is to the left.

    Austin Powers


    Have you got bad teeth and can pull off a believable English accent? Go out and buy yourself a frilly shirt and blue blazer and you're all set for this Halloween. At the very least it gives you the excuse of acting like a randy Englishman with an extremely hairy chest! Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the British Spy and a collection of Austin's funniest moments in the video to the left:

    Shall we shag now, or shall we shag later? How do you like to do it? Do you like to wash up first? You know, top and tails... whore's bath? Personally, before I'm on the job, I like to give my undercarriage a bit of a 'how's your father'!

    That ain't no woman! It's a man, man!

    Name? Austin Danger Powers. Sex? Yes please!

    Judo chop!

    Au contraire baby, you can't resist me.

    Do I make you horny? Randy? Do I make you horny, baby, yeah, do I?

    Actually, my name is Austin Powers. Danger is my middle name.

    Ron Burgundy


    If you can ramble off witty one liners in that low anchor man voice, you'll be rubbing elbows with all of the Veronica Corningstones at any Halloween Party. Here is a  list of Ron's most memorable quotes. A video of classic Ron Burgundy is to the left. Steal some of these and make up a few of your own:

    [to dog] You're so wise. You're like a miniature Buddha, covered in hair.

    I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly...

    Brian, I'm gonna be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline.

    Everyone just relax, all right? Believe me, if there's one thing Ron Burgundy knows, it's women.

    Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.
