I have red hair and i've been thinking of going as Dorothy from the wizard of oz...I guess that's really more of an auburn color but it's similar to what I have now, which I still call red Wink

The best redhead in all the world... Willow  Grin from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Rogue from the X Men, forget the movie, I'm talking about the one from the kids cartoon

If she's not red enough for you then there's Phoenix

Or

Ariel The Little Mermaid
Flora from Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors - some pictures here http://www.gloum.net/da_jayce.php?page=jayce if you can't recall the 80's cartoon
Queen Elizabeth I - you can also play her like Miranda Richardson does in Blackadder and voila 2 characters in one.  Smiley

one of those dolllike/anime/manga generalised girlie girl (sorry don't know the actual term) redheads, carry cutesy japanese style props and makeup your eyes real big.
Medieval Scottish Wench (quite often redheads)

Ronald McDonald  - I'm not serious unless you think it's a good idea Cheesy

by that I think you mean mary jane watson from spiderman?  you could dress exactly the way she does in her first appearance in the comics.  before that you could never see her face because she's always behind some plant or something, so maybe hold a plant in front of your face.  then if you can convince someone to go as peter, you're all set!

another redhead I've always liked is mrs. peel (played by diana rigg) from the avengers.

Everyone has already said mine!  I have red hair (ok, it's by choice and not by nature, but still).  Costumes that have played it up have been Poison Ivy, a flame, and Drew Barrymore's character Danielle from Ever After.  But really, isn't anything better with red hair?

I didn't read all the way thru, so I hope someone didn't already say this... Jessica Rabbit!  She's hot, too.  You know, from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  Plus, you'd get to wear fake eyelashes and a sparkly purple dress.

I love the kim possible idea. I did decide on dorothy.  I thought it would be cool to make a flying monkey over my shoulder...like attached by a wire or something.  I don't know..i just wanted it to be a little more interesting.
thanks for all the suggestions

yes she does Smiley at least barbara gordon's batgirl did, and she is the proper one, depite all the costume shops referencing alica silverstone in the film.
i'm being batgirl this year, am making my costume at the moment, it is impossible to find yellow boots! so i've had to paint some instead, and just finished making my cape Smiley
have picked up some great ideas for next year from this thread though! thanks!
