Recap / Homestar Runner Fan Costumes 2015

Go To

Airdate: November 10, 2015

Strong Bad once again criticizes fan costumes (some sent to his Twitter account at @StrongBadActual): ones made with too little effort, ones made with too much effort, low-budget ones in high-budget settings, and ones that inspire characters who totally weren't made up on the spot.


  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Strong Bad declares fans should put a little more effort into their costumes, which is followed by a guy in a Homestar costume with white tights.
    Strong Bad: BLOOORGH! Less effort, less effort!
  • Continuity Nod:
    • An overly-detailed Homestar costume is accompanied by the laughter of the Horrible Painting of Somebody's Dad from "The House That Gave Sucky Tricks".
    • One of the Strong Bad costumes is apparently intended to be "Sir Hotbod Handsomeface" from Issue 10 of Teen Girl Squad.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Strong Bad "recognizes" a humidifier in the background of one picture as "a dead-on Humidibot" costume, which is followed by a skit featuring Humidibot and Strong Bad.
  • Shout-Out: Strong Sad is seen listening to his record collection, singing along to "Age of Consent" by New Order.
  • Subverted Catch Phrase: A guy posing in a store-room dressed as Dangeresque inspires Strong Bad to say "Looks like I'm gonna have to... stand on the door handle of this weird storage room!"
  • Take That!: Strong Bad riffs on the tradition of mall trick-or-treating.
    Strong Bad: This is Red Five, I'm going in... to the mall... where my child will do all of their trick-or-treating, because even though I live in the suburbs, I'm terrified of my neighbors.

  • Take That, Audience!: Strong Bad continues the grand tradition of making fun of fan-made Homestar Runner costumes.

How well does it match the trope?
