Although not eactly Literature, I've been seriosly considering doing Vladimir from Samuel Becket's Waiting for Godot. It would pretty much be a basic Tramp costume (but with the Bowler--can't forget the Bowler). What I'd do, though, would be put a sign on my back, something to the tune of "Have you seen Godot?", but more snappy. Not only would this distinguish me but, in a true exercise in Post-Modernism, would cause significant confusion RE: the Phoenix Wright Godot, introducing a fascinating paradox of the signifier. If only I could find a Gogo...
The other fun one in that vein would be Rosencranz and Guildenstern, but you'd really have to have two for that.
And I've always also turned over Yossarian, as well, but I'm not sure how I would ever get that distinct enough and keep the cost down. Maybe one day.
