In his post about this image from Sacha Baron Cohen's 2012 film The Dictator Sam Morgan wrote: "Here's your first look at the most popular costume of Halloween 2012." Sam's right, your "unclever, frat guy friend" will be all over this. Cohen specializes in these sort of iconic and "hilarious" looks. I think I saw twenty Borats one year. Here's the full image:

But not you, gentle readers. Your Halloween costumes will, no doubt, be layered with nuance, sophisticated references and, dare I hope, a pun or two? (I'll always remember my high school teacher's "Iron Curtain" costume.) Well I firmly believe it's never too early to start thinking about costume ideas. Who knows how long it will take you to track down that perfect shade of Azazel red? Here are a few ideas to get your costume idea generators whirring. I demand nothing but the best from you.

Nerdy: Amy Pond
What You'll Need: A red wig/red hair dye and eyeliner for hash marks.

"Feminist": The Ladies of Sucker Punch
What You'll Need: Clothing that is three sizes too small, some swords, a warped sense of female empowerment.

Guaranteed To Get You Laid: Raylan Givens
What You'll Need: A stetson, some good jeans, some good genes, endless patience as you repeat, "No, no, no, no, I'm not a cowboy, I'm U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens."

Fratty: Ed Helms from The Hangover II: Curry Vindaloo*

Stale Political Humor: Anthony Weiner
What You'll Need: A pair of grey boxer briefs and a misguided sense of how hilarious this scandal is. Be prepared for Happy Halloweiner jokes. Also be prepared for me to hate you.

Offensive: Post-VampiriC-section Bella
What You'll Need: A sullen expression, a drab wig, smears of fake blood along your abdomen.

Committed: Post-Tammy II Ron Swanson

Brazen, Female Edition: Mystique
What You'll Need: A swimsuit for the naughty bits, a big vat of body paint, an even bigger vat of self-confidence.

Obscure: The Tree of Life
What You'll Need: Some branches and bark and gl-wait. Is there even an actual tree in that movie? What is that movie about? I heard there were dinosaurs. Were there dinosaurs? So maybe slap some branches on your head and carry around a stuffed dinosaur and, when people ask you what you are, adopt a sneering expresion as you say, "You just don't get it. You never will."
