    Michael C. Hall in Dexter (2006)

    Dexter Morgan: Keep a blood slide and a needle of horse tranquilizer in your pocket and show rage while yelling "Look at what you did!"
  2. Vote!

    Emily Deschanel in Bones (2005)

    Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan: What could be more appropriate than walking about with a real human skull in your hand and a bag of bone you can rattle...? And if somebody asks you questions, all you say is "I'm a forensic anthropologist." (suggestion and costume tips by cocoken.)
  3. Vote!

    Kristin Bauer van Straten in True Blood (2008)

    Pam De Beaufort: Cynical, sarcastic, and calculating, you're a vampire who is dismissive of humans and many vampires, as well. Your heart is rarely captured by another, but when it is, every century or so, you're fiercely devoted.
  4. Vote!

    Nelsan Ellis in True Blood (2008)

    Lafayette Reynolds: Part tough guy, part "cross-dressing queen," you're charismatic and popular with both humans and vampires. You are, at turns, laid back and animated with a flair for the dramatic. You're also a great cook of Louisiana cuisine, so take gumbo or chili to whatever party you'll be sure to find.
  5. Vote!

    Maisie Williams in Game of Thrones (2011)

    Arya Stark: Once you've got the clothing down, be even more convincing by being the classic "tomboy," rejecting so-called ladylike pursuits. Dazzle others with your accomplished mock swordplay.
  6. Vote!

    Matthew McConaughey in True Detective (2014)

    Rust Cohle: Wear long, unkempt hair in a ponytail, chain-smoke, carry a beer can around, and say things like, "Time is a flat circle" and "We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody." Call your sidekick "Marty."
  7. Vote!

    Jim Parsons in The Big Bang Theory (2007)

    Sheldon Cooper: Wear a long sleeve shirt underneath a t-shirt with a Star Wars logo or perhaps a visual representation of a Schwarzschild wormhole. Speak "Klingon" often. If you go to a party, absolutely do not drive, instead getting a ride from a friend who you'll remind is not as smart as you are.
  8. Vote!

    Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons in The Big Bang Theory (2007)

    Amy Farrah Fowler: Be socially awkward and stay close to Sheldon, however mention how your field of neurobiology is far superior to his field -- or anyone else's. Don't forget to top off your costume with a barrette in your hair.

    Charlie Hunnam in Sons of Anarchy (2008)

    Jax Teller: In addition to the clothing, ride a motorcycle, preferably with others on motorcycles.
  10. Vote!

    Sam Heughan in Outlander (2014)

    Jamie Fraser: You're rough but romantic, and look great in a kilt. (suggestion by yrnej)
  12. Vote!

    Greg Nicotero in The Walking Dead (2010)

    A Walker: Before you don your costume, watch plenty of zombie films in order to study how to walk while appearing to be dead. Then decay.
  13. Vote!

    Grant Gustin

    The Flash: In a skin-tight red onesie with a hood, and gold lightening on your chest, when you move, do it, well, like lightening. (suggested by, and costume credit to, yrnej)

    A member of The Guilty Remnant: Dress in all white, carry a cigarette at all times, and don't talk, instead communicating via a small notebook.
  15. Vote!

    Taylor Schilling in Orange Is the New Black (2013)

    Piper Chapman: You dress in orange but you're really a bit "green" as you try to navigate your new environment. Enjoy your freedom!

    Uzo Aduba in Orange Is the New Black (2013)

    Suzanne 'Crazy Eyes' Warren: After you do your hair, balance your stalker-like exterior with the sweet little girl you really are underneath. ("costume design" made possible by yrnej)
  17. Vote!

    Bryan Cranston in Breaking Bad (2008)

    Walter White: Bald head, goatee, and duplicity are required. Perhaps also carry "chemistry equipment."

    Angel Batista: Call your male friends "bro," speak Spanglish, use an authentic Cuban accent when using Spanish words, be nice, down to earth, and not at all intellectual. Choose beer as your beverage.
  20. Vote!

    Michael C. Hall and C.S. Lee in Dexter (2006)

    Vince Masuka: Wear glasses, floral shirts in bold colors, and a badge identifying yourself as a crime scene analyist for Miami Metro Homicide. Be a bit inappropriate and laugh at your own dirty jokes.
  21. Vote!

    Desmond Harrington and Jennifer Carpenter in Dexter (2006)

    Deb: Wear a practical, athletic watch, plaid button-downed shirt with the sleeves rolled up, a belt, a detective's badge, and long, straight hair. This is key: Use profanity often, and use the four letter "F" word as frequently as possible, yet somehow still be irresistibly sweet and charming. You're a bit insecure but gutsy and smart. You've got spunk.
  22. Vote!

    Stephen Amell in Arrow (2012)

    The Arrow: You're green and grumpy, with a bow and arrows. (suggested by yrnej)
  23. Vote!

    Betty White in Hot in Cleveland (2010)

    The "Betty White option" is dressing up as the "Elka Ostrovsky option" for Halloween. Whether you're going "trick or treating" or to a party, make sure you take at least two enamored dates. If someone doesn't have candy for you, tell them exactly what you think in no uncertain terms.
