300

300 shows a slightly dramatized account of the Battle of Thermopylae, where Spartan King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) clashed with Persian King Xerxes. The vastly outnumbered Spartans make a valiant stand, but I can’t help wonder how they’d have done with some armor, or a shirt, on.

Rambo

Rambo, first name John, is an action hero played by Sylvester Stallone. At first a sympathetic war vet who has trouble integrating back into society, Rambo becomes more and more comical as the sequels pile up. For this costume, we’ll supply the muscles, you supply the blood, sweat, and tears.

Axe Cop

Axe Cop is a gruff police officer who prefers to wield a fireman’s axe while fighting crime. He’s married to his job, working the “always” shift by sleeping two minutes per day. His battle cry is straight and to the point: “I will chop your head off!”

Rex

In Napoleon Dynamite, Rex teaches rex kwon do, a self-defense training program that he developed over two seasons of fighting in the octagon. Bow to your sensei. BOW TO YOUR SENSEI!

Duke Nukem

When most people hear ‘The Duke’ they might think of a posh gentleman who drinks tea and plays polo. Well, this ain’t England. Duke is a smart-mouthed, wise cracking ladies’ man sent by the CIA to save the planet. And he does it all with a cigar in his mouth. No big deal.
