The Costume: John Connor (as played by the ranting Christian Bale)

What You'll Need: Don't get us wrong, we love us some Christian Bale. But if you can't get a little bit of fun -- and a clever Halloween costume -- out of his infamous 'Terminator Salvation' set rant, you should probably just skip the trick-or-treating thang this year.

So, to create a Ranting Christian Bale-as-John Connor look, you'll need a dark military fatigue-ish shirt and pants, dark boots, dark jacket, various (faux, of course) weapons like guns, knives and ammunition, black fingerless gloves, a buzz cut, dirt or makeup smeared on your face, light facial hair, and, the pièce de résistance, a head full of expletives ready to fly at any and every passerby.
