[edit] Transcript

{Open on the basement of the Brothers Strong. The projector screen comes down and the lights dim. The first costume shows a guy wearing a piece of paper that reads "dn'd Greg" on his shirt, holding what appears to be a red die and pointing at it.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} While this technically falls into the much-maligned category of "tapestume", or "tapesplay", if you're going to a con, you really nailed the face I have to make when I do the Greg voice. Let the prickly hairs of that pre-pubescent goatee—

{Zoom in on the photo. An arrow with tiny hairs on the end is drawn to emphazie the beard that has been drawn on.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} —curl your upper lip, {A curly arrow points to the mouth} squint those eyes up, {a series of arrows points around the guy's glasses} and just grunt-sigh each word!

{A word balloon comes from the picture as Greg speaks, and speaker lines come from his mouth.}

D N' D GREG: But gentlemen, come back! It was a fair die roll, I swear!

{Zoom in on the die in his hand.}

D N' D GREG: On closer inspection, this appears to have just been a strawberry fruit gusher.

{Cut back to the previous shot. The guy's head is morphed into a red strawberry with text accompaniment.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Late 90's CG Snackbomination'd!

{The next photo features someone dressed in a yellow wig made of yarn, a wide purple skirt decorated with ribbon and pom-poms, holding a paper ukulele.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Hey, who knew Marzipan was actually less hideous as a human? I got a folk song for ya! {A guitar begins to strum awkwardly as Strong Bad sings out of tune} You're the only one that came to this Halloween party at the Rec Center. And no one else is there.

{Zoom in on the empty, black-plastic-covered table.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} {singing} And nobody brought any {a dotted-line bag of chips appears} chips. And nobody brought any {a dotted-line two-liter bottle appears} soda.

{Back to the full shot.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} {singing} And you can't hear anything anyway because—

{Pan to the edge of the photo. An extension cord in the background runs off-screen into the white space. A line traces the cable and a picture of The Poopsmith running a floor waxer is drawn.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} —there's a janitor over here waxing the floooooors!

{The next photo shows someone wearing a hockey mask colored to look like Strong Bad, Everlast gloves, a red hat, and red sweater.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Oh, if it isn't Carmen Sandiego Murder Your Family Strong Bad!

{A yellow oval label reading "Carmen Sandiego MURDER YOUR FAMILY STRONG BAD" appears below.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} That is certainly... a personal twist. One could put on a costume.

{The next shot shows a photo of a man wearing a large orange sweater with a number 7 drawn on it, holding two loaves of bread in place of his hands, and kneeling on a pair of sneakers in order to make himself look short.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} It's Biscuitdoughhandsman's {a drawing of Biscuitdoughhandsman on a pad of yellow drawing paper pans in from the left} international criminal cousin! Loaves-of-crusty-baguette-hands-monsieur!

{The drawing pad pans out of the frame.}

COACH Z: {voiceover} Once-it-again, Loaves-of-crusty-baguetta-hands-monsieur has slipped through our finger-duh-zuh!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} That's supposed to be a French accent?

{The next shot shows a mascot-style Homestar Runner standing in a living room.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Man, look at these things! It's like we've entered some—

{The next shot shows a man crouching next to a another mascot-style Homestar on a road outdoors. The costume has arms covered in black cloth.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} —kinda full-sized—

{The next shot shows a mascot-style Homestar standing next to Space Ghost.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} —Homestar costume renaissance! Meanwhile, Strong Bad costumes—

{The next shot shows another full-sized Homestar costume, this one dressed in his Dale Murphy costume with a yellow bat attached, standing in an office hallway.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} —are stuck in the dark ages with this guy!

{A shot showing a guy wearing an inaccurate Strong Bad mask, white gloves, and a white T-shirt reading "Stronge Bad" appears with a splat sound.}

{The next shot shows a guy in a basement wearing a cardboard box held with duct-tape straps to look like Humidibot.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Congratulations, Humidibot! You just might be the first character created {a picture of the Homsar costume from Fan Costumes 2015 with the Humidibot inspiration pans into the frame} by the fan costume commentary {Zoom in on the machine within the old shot's frame. It later morphs into Humidibot} to then be showcased as a fan's costume in the fan costume commentary.

{The picture of the fan is animated so that the box lid slams shut on the body, simulating speech. Purple water splashes out the sides as he does.}

HUMIDIBOT: Hey, thanks Strong Bad! I was just down here in the basement because it was a little bit damp!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} So wait, does that actually mean you've been a de-Humidibot this whole time?

HUMIDIBOT: {nervous laughter} I think you may have just given me an existential crisis! 'Cause I'm Humidibot!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} I feel kinda bad for that poor nerd you keep chompin'.

HUMIDIBOT: He tastes like grape juice!

{The next shot shows a family in front of a picnic shelter. One person is dressed as a burninated peasant holding Trogdor on a stick, one is dressed as the King of Town, one is dressed as Homestar, one is dressed as Strong Bad, one is dressed as Coach Z, and the last one is dressed as The Cheat holding a kitty bag.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} I love seeing these whole-family group costumes, but... you gotta wonder what the kid that dressed up as the King of Town did. {imitating a mother} Now little Parblegreggy! {the word "parblegreggy" appears with an arrow pointing at the King of Town costume wearer} We told you, if you drop your phone again and crack the screen, you're gonna have to dress up as the King of Town this year! {normal voice} And if it happens again, so help me you will dress up as Monkey D next year!

{On cue, the next shot shows someone in a gorilla mask wearing a white tank top with the words "I (Heart) Strong Band" drawn on it standing in front of a fireplace mantel.}

{The next shot shows four adult women dressed as the Teen Girl Squad.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Is anybody else get the feeling that this is a... bunch of nuns dressed up as the Teen Girl Squad? And they're like, secretly meeting in the basement, because the Teen Girl Squad is forbidden fruit! Thanks for heretically representin', ladies! And get out soon! Er, wait. I'm gonna go look up how nuns work.

{The next shots are shown in rapid succession, as Strong Bad speaks rhythmically. The first shows a guy on his porch in a Homestar Runner costume where the face is covered in white cloth and large backward-six eyes.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Too many Homestars!

{The next shot shows a woman in a closet dressed as Homestar, taking a picture of herself in the mirror with a smartphone.}

{The next shot shows a boy in a baggy red sweater dressed as Homestar.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Too many Homestars!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Too many Homestars!

{The next shot shows a guy dressed as Homestar standing next to a small Christmas tree.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Too many Homestars!

{The next shot is shown upside-down. It's a Bubs costume, but with a white face.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Bubs! {The shot is now right-side-up} Bubs! Is that an Onion Bubs-headed Bubs costume? I don't know if that would get the same enthusiastic reception as Onion Bubs.

{The next shot shows a cartoon version of Onion Bubs sitting on the counter at Bubs' Concession Stand. A crowd cheers enthusiastically.}

CHEERING FAN: {voiceover} Onion Bubs! Onion Bubs! Onion BUUUBS!

{Back to the shot of the white-faced Bubs costume. Cricket noises.}

CONFUSED FAN: {voiceover} Onion... Bubs? Face? Onion head face? Bubs and head...? I don't know, I... gives me pause, gives me pause.

{The next shot shows a family at a party. There is a mascot-style Homestar and a Marzipan with a large cylindrical head. A Strong Bad is strapped into a stroller, and a man wearing a Spider-Man shirt and sweatpants stands next to them.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, terrified} Ah! You unethical monsters! I can't even comment on what great Homestar and Strong Bad costumes those are! Because you've done the unspeakable! You crossbred Marzipan {An image of Marzipan drops in from above on the right} with Marshie! {An image of Marshie drops in from above on the left}

{Wipe to the field. A flesh-colored Marshie with Marzipan's mouth sitting atop an oversized Marzipan skirt stands beside Homestar.}

MARSHIEPAN: Heya there, Homestar! {She creeps in closer. Homestar looks surprised} I'm your new best girl, Marshiepan!

{Homestar's head transforms into a seeded watermelon slice.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Wah! Real fruit flavor!

{Wipe back to the basement. The next shot shows a guy dressed as Homsar with a full beard and a shriner's cap, holding a smartphone to take a picture of himself in the bathroom mirror.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Ah, another great {the photo ripples with Strong Bad's sarcastic delivery} Homsar costume. Which means another Homsar quote manufactured from crap you didn't crop out of your photo. {imitating Homsar} Daaah! Batten down {Zoom in on a red cup on the bathroom counter} your red cups, everybody! {Pan up to an empty wooden towel ring} 'Cause my towel rack is nothing but {pan back down to the sink} Aqua Net! {Cut to an empty bottle of soap} Empty soap dispenser {cut to the red cup with a Ziploc bag} plastic bag.

{Cut to the person's shirt. The letters of the word "Homsar" are attached with Scotch tape.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Learn how to use tape better. {mumbling} Make it into those little rolls and stick it under the letter.

{Zoom out to the full shot again.}

{The next shot shows two people dressed as Old Man Rootbeer and Mr. Poofers. Mr. Poofers is holding a piece of paper reading "Miffa Miffa Meeka Moo!".}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Oh no! Mr. Poofers and Old Man Rootbeer costumes! {Cosmic sounds as Strong Bad struggles} Can't... let them... affect me!

{Cut to the Mr. Poofers costume's face with a pop.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, narrating} Mr. Poofers was dabblin' to himself. {The shot begins to rock back and forth} More so than most Wednesdays.

{Cut to the Old Man Rootbeer costume.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, as Old Man Rootbeer} "You keep dabblin' like that {The screen shakes} and you'll plum run out of cornpone!"

{Cut back to the full shot.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, narrating} Thesised Old M.

{The image of Mr. Poofers appears and pops like a cloud, causing the photo to vanish.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Make it stop!

{The next shot shows a guy wearing a red suit and tie with lots of medals and rank insignias, with an orange bowl helmet, an orange spoon, and a popcorn maker.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} That is one highly-decorated member of the Homestarmy!

{Text appears below as Homestar speaks: Gen. Buttweesimo Twicetimes-Removed Shoulderthingies (Ret.)}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} It's General Buttweesimo Twicetimes-Removed Shoulderthingies! He's rumored to have upwards of six bucks!

{The next shot shows a guy in the dark wearing glow-in-the-dark facepaint that looks like Strong Bad's mask.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Whoa, pretty cool blacklight Strong Bad facepaint! How did you do the—

{The next shot shows the same person, raging at the screen. A musical sting plays.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, terrified} Ah! 32 horrors in one!

{The shot tips over and transforms into a hobby kit for face paint with four jars of color.}

SEDATE ANNOUNCER: That's right, make 32 horrors in one with the all-new Strong Bad Blacklight Paint Kit.

{A disclaimer appears below.}

SEDATE ANNOUNCER: I don't know if it comes with brushes or sponges. And frankly I don't care.

{The next shot shows a Thnikkaman and a modestly hot Homsar standing in a kitchen.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Pretty solid Thnikkaman and Modestly Hot Homsar costumes, guys. You almost make 'em look—

{Zoom in on their chef-themed kitchen decor in the background. The shot shakes.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, screaming} What is the deal with the chefs?! {Zoom in on the chef-themed wallpaper border} There's some kind of chef wallpaper! {pan to the clock} And a chef clock! {pan to a poster of a chef holding a loaf of bread on a tray} And some kind of baker-painting thing!

{Zoom back out to the whole shot.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover, screaming} It's too much! {The shot shakes} Dial it back!

{The last shot shows a montage of costumes that were not commented on with a slapping sound. From left to right:}
