Up until this year, Bubba from the current Judge Parker. Until I cut my hair this spring, I had the same long hair and facial hair, a farm that can’t be seen from any road (not pot, though) and in a mining district, and a red chainsaw (would need to pack on some weight, though). Sadly, no movie producers have yet appeared to offer me money.
I want to see the conversation between James Pollock as a Peanuts adult and John DiFool as Lio.
As for me, I could get out my Bible and old sports goggles, shave my head, and go as the white Cortez Beecher. I’d probably spend most of Halloween explaining to increasingly disinterested people who I was, but that can probably be said for any comic strip character that isn’t in Peanuts or Garfield.
Alice Otterloop (Cul de Sac), or Alice and her Fist of Death (Dilbert), or the son’s girlfriend from Nest Heads, because they are all obviously modeled after me in every way, from appearance to personality.
Wrong link, John Small Berries. Although the quote is quite fine.
Ironically, the quote is actually not fine either — perhaps the sentiment is, but it’s misattributed, as it appears in no works of Cicero. In addition, the Latin form is usually given as “Ut conclave sine libris, ita corpus sine anima”, and I think translating “anima” (as opposed to “animus”) as “soul” is questionable (but not indefensible). Perhaps better would be “breath” or “life”.
The hat guy from xkcd. Because I own a hat.
I’d skip the stick-figure part.

Hmm, I always do cartoons but never comic strips. I usually do guys, because female character’s designs tend to be defined by shape, whereas guys are nondescript jelly-bellies defined by costume. They’re easier to fudge and more recognizable. (This is less true for comic strips, but meh, Miss Buxley.)
I’m learning to work with foam, so I’d like to do something crazy, like Slylock Fox. If I decided not to look like a furry, then I’d do a horrible crossplay of Mopey Les Moore, smirking all the while. I’d still be manlier then the real thing!
Because nobody else will. Originally, I was going to go as hat man from XKCD since I’ve managed to become so svelte, but Morris K. is doing that already and it is just soooooo embarrassing to show up and be the 2nd or 3rd ladybug.
The buzzard from Little Dog Lost.
He’s a complex character that never intentionally harms the other characters but has no qualms about benefitting from their misfortunes (especially if it’s the characters’ own fault).
