What are you supposed to be?

"No, I'm Carmen freakin' Mir—no, wait. I'm Ozone. From Breakin'."

During Halloween, the characters dress up in costumes, in which they often go trick or treating. Many of these costumes are icons or celebrities from the 1970s, '80s, and '90s, leaving most of the other characters unable to identify who a particular character is supposed to be dressed as.

This is put quite frankly by The King of Town in Halloween Potion-ma-jig, in which he says, "I wish you'd dress up as something I could recognize! Pop culture... mumble grumble!"

  • The last image offered ten dollars to anyone who can identify all of the costumes. They have all since been identified.

  • Homestar was confused about his own costume. He thought he was some sort of a golf cart. He was actually Carl Spackler from Caddyshack.
  • Homestar thought The Cheat was a pile of leaves. The Cheat was actually Sigmund, from Sigmund and the Sea Monsters.
  • Coach Z thought Pom Pom was Big Boi from OutKast. Pom Pom was actually Big Boy, the mascot for the restaurant chain "Bob's Big Boy".

  • Homestar, seeing Strong Sad's Devo member costume, comments on it, saying, "Nice fire hydrant costume."
  • Homestar thought Strong Bad was Blanche from The Golden Girls. Bubs thought he was Phyllis Diller. Coach Z thought he was supposed to be his hot mom. The King of Town couldn't recognize his costume at all. Strong Bad was dressed as Jambi the genie, from Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
  • Homestar also thought Bubs was Lando Calrissian. He was actually the master of disaster, Apollo Creed from Rocky and Rocky II.
  • Strong Bad thought Pom Pom's costume, which was of Walter Sobchak from The Big Lebowski, was of "every guy at a truck stop."

  • Homestar asked Strong Bad to guess who he is supposed to be, to which Strong Bad answers successfully with very little effort.

Happy Hallow-day

  • Homestar remarked to Marzipan that he likes her "I have a caterpillar crawling across my forehead" costume. Marzipan was dressed up as Frida Kahlo.
  • When Homestar sees Strong Bad's Father Guido Sarducci costume, he thinks it is an evil Carmen Sandiego costume. Incidentally, Strong Bad did dress up as Carmen Sandiego five years earlier.
  • Strong Bad teases Strong Sad asking him if his costume was Strong Sad at his 20-year high school reunion. Strong Sad was actually Tony Clifton.

Doomy Tales of the Macabre

Hey, X, I really like your X costume

"I really like your covered all in black ink costumes."

Homestar Runner will often mistake a costume that someone (including himself) is wearing for another person. This started as a gag on for Halloween and has happened on several instances outside of Halloween toons.


  • Debut: The House That Gave Sucky Treats — "Hey, Strong Bad, I really like your costume. The Spanish Inquisition? That's great."
  • 3 Times Halloween Funjob
    • "Hey, Strong Bad, I really like your El Debarge costume."
    • "Say, Bubs, I really like your dirty man outfit."
    • "Hey, Coach Z, I really like your Wesley Snakes outfit."
  • Decemberween Short Shorts — "Hey, Strong Bad, I really like your rhinestone cowboy costume."
  • Email yes, wrestling — "Hey, Strong Bad. I really like your Rudy from Fat Albert costume."
  • Most in the Graveyard — "Hey, Homestar, I really like your Carrot Top costume."
  • Doomy Tales of the Macabre Teaser — "Hey, everybody, I really like your covered all in black ink costumes. Kinda stole my idea, though. Don't you think?"
