Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski

Jeffrey Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), or as he would prefer to be called, the Dude, is an avid bowler and otherwise total slacker. He gets caught up in a kidnapping scheme after getting confused with millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski. That sweater really ties the outfit together, Dude.

Anton Chigurh

In No Country for Old Men, Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) is a cold-blooded killer with a strange appearance and stranger weapon of choice. He also plays a mean game of heads-or-tails. Call it, friend-o.

Walter Sobchak from The Big Lebowski

In The Big Lebowski, Walter Sobchak (played by John Goodman) is a Vietnam veteran with a temper who is on the same bowling team as the Dude and Donny. It’s hard to decide whether you want Walter on your side or if you want to stay away from him. With his military vest and random weapons, Walter is ready to go to war over anything. He’ll even take you out over a game of bowling. Walter is the Dude’s best friend, though his tendency to use his pistol to settle an argument can be stressful for the Dude’s pacifist nature.  Walter often talks down to Donny, but when Donny dies, Walter takes the initiative to try and spread his ashes at the beach. Some of the most iconic pieces of Walter’s costume include his yellow aviators, tan vest, and his pistol.  If you don’t have an old metal Folgers can lying around in your basement or garage, a metal urn shaped like a coffee can will certainly do the trick.
