Cosplay suggestions for... Santa?

Hi,

I have an friend who is a middle-aged bearded gentleman. We're trying to come up with some more cosplay ideas. Doesn't have to be anime; other pop culture, movies, comics are probably preferable.

He's been a professional Santa for the past decade or so.

At MegaCon this past year, he dyed his beard and went as Duff Killigan from Kim Possible.

Dunno if he has the hair or build for Salvador (Borderlands) but I'll suggest it.

Thanks!

Thanks, good suggestions.

I don't think he's tall enough for Dumbledore.

Ice King or Petrikov might work. My wife is thinking about doing Marceline anyway, so they'd go well together.

Huang Zhong is also pretty cool, though that cosplay is pretty elaborate and would take a fair amount of work to put together well..

He's leaning toward Captain Okita from Space Battleship Yamato (aka Star Blazers in the US):

I think he should just do Santa all the time. Everybody loves Santa, who cares if it's March?

I agree completely!

Other suggestions:

Cid from Final Fantasy IV - http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Cid_Pollendina

Gandalf from Lord of the Rings

Gimli from Lord of the Rings (he would technically be too tall, probably, but it would be awesome anyway)

I know you said he might be too short for Dumbledore (he's probably technically too young also) but I'll bet people would love it if he likes the character.

Hope these ideas helped the brainstorming!
