Go back to the ’70s for a costume like the famous anchorman, Ron Burgundy, of the local San Diego television station, KVWN channel 4. Get the look of the arrogant, egotistical, and Emmy Award-winning news anchor, played by Will Ferrell from the comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Suit up in a Two Button Burgundy Dress Suit, Van Heusen White Wrinkle Free Shirt, Scott Allan Striped Tie, White Belt with Roller Buckle, and a pair of Men’s White Loafers. Mirror Burgundy’s look with a 70s Wig And Mustache Set, Ron Burgundy Channel 4 Ring, and your Ron Burgundy RB Ring. Bring your Channel 4 News Team Mug to the news desk for a costume that is complete comedy.
Taking on the legendary Ron Burgundy for cosplay will require a lively personality. This character is more about attitude than style, though you would be hard-pressed to find a better-dressed news anchor. A thrift store suit and tie would go a long way into perfecting this look and if you’re lucky you’ll stumble upon some bright white shoes to draw attention to your Ron Burgundy persona. Any chunky men’s jewelry would suffice, his style is as loud as his shoes.
You can’t pull off this cosplay without Ron’s trademark mustache. It’s definitely worth the extra expense to get higher quality facial hair if you can’t grow one worthy of Ron’s yourself. If you have friends who want to play along, Ron is always in good company with other Anchorman characters like Brian, Brick, and Champ. If you have a partner, Ron Burgundy is incomplete without his co-anchor and love interest, Veronica Corningstone.

Ron Burgundy is the quintessential ladies man. He’s cocky and confident about the effect his good looks have on every woman he meets. He’s a perfect example of a manufactured sex symbol. Taking his cues from his teleprompter and band of childhood friends, Ron cannot imagine himself being anything but irresistible to all he meets. A playful misogynist, whose behavior would be off-putting to most, Ron Burgundy comes off as charming and surprisingly as irresistible as he claims.
Ron got his first taste of possible failure when he first met his girlfriend, Veronica Corningstone. She wasn’t impressed with who he was and cared more about being taken seriously in their mutual profession, at least in the beginning. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, he charmed his way into Veronica’s life and made her his own, all while putting himself back on top at the news desk. You can have a lot of fun with this cosplay, all the more if you go as a group!
