Jon and Kate Gosselin

What you need: For Jon: Jeans, an Ed Hardy T-shirt, and a couple of earrings. For Kate: It's all about the messy, asymmetrical hairdo. That something extra: If you can round up eight adorable-but-exploited children, you'll be golden.

Betty Draper and Joan Harris, Mad Men

What you need: If you're the Betty Draper type, you need headbands, poofy dresses, plaid, inauspicious earrings, and pearls. If you go for Joan, go for clingy dresses, rich, solid colors, pencil skirts, and plunging necklines. That extra something: A pointy bra

Dwight Schrute, The Office

What you need: Dwight's outfit can come directly from Grandpa's closet, and you can probably steal his wire glasses too. Wear black socks and a bad tie, and part your greasy hair down the middle. That extra something: If you're going casual, you must have the Three Wolf Moon T-shirt.
5 of 15 HBO

Bill and Sookie, True Blood

What you need: For Bill, you need a leather jacket, fangs, and a totally dated view of the world. For Sookie, keep it simple with a white T-shirt, black shorts, a tray, and a ridiculously bad southern accent. That extra something: Although we don't necessarily endorse the practice, bite marks are pretty much a must.

Betty Suarez, Ugly Betty

What you need: Braces, red glasses, mismatched bright clothes That extra something: A malaria net

Abby Sciuto, NCIS
