Need Halloween costume ideas involving a mustache!

Anyone have any good ideas for a Halloween costume involving a mustache?

I'm growing a mustache all month so I figured I might as well incorporate it into my costume. So far I've come up with Rafael Palmeiro on Levitra or a Reno 911/Supertroopers character. I'm about 6'2 210 with dark blond hair if that matters for your ideas. Any and all suggestions are welcome. I'm not shy

Robert Redford as The Sundance Kid comes to mind, given your self-description.

If you have some really short shorts and a tank top, you could be Freddie Mercury

If you have some really short shorts, an Aloha shirt, and a Tigers cap, you could be Magnum P.I.

For some reason, moustaches and really short shorts go together.

Geraldo. Pose with a mic, some cement dust and an empty whiskey bottle.

I'm planning on going as Daniel Plainview, solely as an excuse to do the milkshake monologue.

Put on a red flannel shirt, a pair of suspenders, and go as the Brawny paper towel guy. You can carry a roll of Brawny with you in case people don't get it.

Plus, you're handy at parties, for cleaning up spills.

Lyle from Achewood.

Misfits skull t-shirt, bottle of cheap whiskey, cheap squarish wire-rim glasses, optional black knit cap (and moustache).

Juan Valdez, baby! Everybody loves that guy. You could mount a papier mache coffee burro head on your torso.

Seconding Juan Valdez, but only if you're the designated driver.

If you go as ROU's suggestion, you must carry a blue bucket.

(Anyone who gets it will be fun to drink with.)

Any of the appropriate Village People. With the blond hair, you could probably pull off Construction Worker or Leatherman.

Take the Teddy Roosevelt idea a bit meta and go as Teddy Brewster from Arsenic and Old Lace. Make comments about burying fever victims in the basement and run up stairs yelling CHARGE!!!

Sidenote: My stepfather is going as Snidely Whiplash this year and my mom is Nell Fenwick. We had to get him a fake moustache though.

"You know who else had a mustache?"

Jamie from Mythbusters. All you need is a white blouse shirt and a beret.

(inspired by ROU_Xenophobe's suggestion)
