[edit] Transcript

{The wall of Strong Bad's Basement is visible, and a projector screen snaps down from the ceiling. An offscreen slide projector turns on, filling the screen with white light. The projector displays the first slide: two girls, one with pigtails and a Bear holding a Shark T-shirt, the other wearing an angry bear mask (with pointy, bloody teeth), paws, and fur. She is holding a toy shark over her head.}

STRONG BAD: Oh! What's up, ho-ties. Hey, The Cheat... I bet you're not scared of that Bear holding a Shark.

THE CHEAT: {agreeing The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: And I like the upgrade to... Bear holding a Tiger Shark... or was that just like... the only shark they had left at the aquarium gift shop?

{The next slide appears: a picture of a man wearing a Senor Cardgage mask, glasses, and gloves, holding a plastic bag and a candy bar in front of a brick wall.}

STRONG BAD: Not only did this guy dress up as Senor Cardgage, but it looks like he also hung out in the same creepy alleyways as him. He wouldn't even have to trick-or-treat since he's got his own bag full of melty candy bars. In fact, I bet he drove around in an unmarked white van givin' out melty candy bars to little kids! What an un-creepy Samaritan.

{The next slide appears: a picture of a woman wearing a The Cheat-spotted skirt, shirt, and hood, holding a plastic cup in a cluttered kitchen.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, it's The Cheat's hot mom...dressed up as... The Cheat's hot mom! Is she giving out frozen margaracheatas again? Ah, The Cheat's hot mom. Always in and out of prison.

{The next slide appears: a picture of a person wearing a giant Strong Bad mask and giant boxing gloves, in a leaf-covered front yard at night.}

STRONG BAD: C'mon people, I have boxing gloves for hands, boxing gloves! Not red garbage bags full of dirty diapers! Or... humpback whale hearts!

{The next slide appears: a picture of a The Cheat costume made out of cardboard boxes and painted yellow bedsheets. The "art" music from portrait plays in the background.}

STRONG BAD: And here we have a piece from The Cheat's Cubist period. You will notice the artist's careful attention to it being a yellow wedge on top of a lighter-yellow box.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, timeless. Just timeless.

{The next slide appears: a picture of a person dressed up as Strong Sad in front of a sky blue background.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, Strong Sad's lost a buncha weight! And a buncha thumbs! {the background of the picture changes to a weather map of the United States of America, with rainy clouds and suns wearing sunglasses} And he's become a weatherman!

STRONG SAD: Today's forecast is partly grey with a forty percent chance of dark grey. Back to you, Strong Bad.

STRONG BAD: Yes. Thank you. Tonight.

{The next slide appears: Three children — a girl wearing a black-and-white cheerleader costume with a skull-and-crossbones emblem, a young boy wearing a papier-mâché Strong Bad mask and boxing gloves without a shirt, and a third child wearing a Ghost Face costume. "Strong Bad" and the "cheerleader" have their arms on each other's shoulder, and "Ghost Face" is giving a thumbs-up.}

STRONG BAD: Wait a minute. This is just a picture from my actual childhood! That's me with my girlfriend, Pirate Cheerleader, and then there's my best friend The Grim Reaper. Man, we had some good times. Terrorizing the streets of Meadowbrook Chase... two... hills...

{The next slide appears: A picture of someone dressed up in a very large Homestar Runner costume next to someone dressed up as Mario. The person dressed up as Homestar is visible through the mouth of the costume.}

STRONG BAD: Yes, a little chicken wire and papier-mâché... goes not a very long, long way. Wait a minute, Homestar, who's that in your mouth? Did you eat Luigi?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yes Strong Bad, I ate Luigi. He tasted like mushrooms...

{The next slide appears: A picture of someone dressed up with a Strong Bad mask, one visible boxing glove, and a lopsided butt, standing on a front porch at nighttime.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, what happened to my left butt?! The west butt is the best butt! Everybody knows that!

{The next slide appears: a picture of a person dressed up in shorts and a very flat Marshie costume on his torso, in front of a brick fireplace.}

STRONG BAD: {in a mock-teenager boy voice} Aw, mom, the guys are on their way over right now, and I don't have a Halloween costume.

STRONG BAD: {in a gravelly mock-mother voice} It's okay, sweetie; all it takes is a few pieces of paper, a magic marker, and zero imagination.

STRONG BAD: {in the mock-teenager boy voice} Thanks, mom! I'll be the coolest kid in school! Everyone loves Margie, the marshmallow!

{The next slide appears: a picture of a small, fluffy white dog wearing a Homestar shirt and beanie, standing on a rug.}

STRONG BAD: Ohh. More animal cruelty. Take that lampshade off Mr. Poofers! Though I bet it does keep him from lickin' his own where-the-sun-don't-shine.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Not necessarily.

{The next slide appears: a man wearing a Strong Bad mask, boxing gloves, a long-sleeved shirt and jeans, sitting in an office cubicle.}

STRONG BAD: What's this guy smilin' about? {in a mocking voice} Oh, yeah. I just got promoted to the three-foot-wide cubicle. Now I can fit four to three post-its on my wall. Hey, Doogan, you stayin' after tonight for the LAN party?

{The next slide appears: three people dressed up as Marzipan, Homestar Runner, and Strong Bad in front of the inside of a garage door. The person dressed up as Marzipan is wearing purple fabric and pigtails. The man dressed up as Homestar has his face painted white and is wearing a red shirt with some paint on it and a blue baseball cap with a propeller. The man dressed up as Strong Bad is wearing a painted ski mask, boxing gloves and a beige shirt, and is holding a Kick the Cheat toy.}

STRONG BAD: Aw, poor Homestar. All his neck-skin sloughed off onto his T-shirt.

{The next slide appears: a little girl dressed up as Coach Z in a foyer of a house. She is wearing a green jumpsuit, a giant "Z" medallion made out of string and a paper plate, and an askew baseball cap.}

STRONG BAD: Blahh! Something about this has to be illegal. Coach Z, you need to be in jail... somehow... for this.

COACH Z: Nah, man, check it out! She's rockin' the foy-ay!

STRONG BAD: Looks like she's rockin' a paper plate with a Z on it, to me.

{The next slide appears: A picture of a man dressed up as Homestar Runner with his arms inside a star shirt, wearing tennis shoes, white sweatpants, white facepaint, and a baseball cap.}

STRONG BAD: Why do I get the sinking feeling that no one else was present when this photograph was taken? And that the camera's just sitting on a nearby trash can. And that guy accidentally set the timer for three minutes instead of ten seconds, and he sat there and waited the whole time for the picture to take. And after it did, he went back upstairs to his dorm room, and went to bed. I mean, and wet the bed.

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the first Fan Costume Commentary to take place in the Basement of the Brothers Strong.

Hidden costume from the Toons Menu preview.

[edit] Inside References

  • The weather map is from Main Page 11.
  • Strong Bad saying "tonight" after Strong Sad's weatherman impression is a reference to local news, when he said "tonight" out of context all through his news program.
  • Strong Sad becoming a weatherman is a nod to keep cool, where Strong Sad delivered weather reports.
  • This is another reference to diapers.
  • Strong Bad once again calls dressing a dog up as Homestar "animal cruelty". He first made that statement in More Fan Costumes.
  • This is another reference to Post-its.
  • This toon alludes to the never-seen parents of the characters.
  • The Cheat's hot mom is said to be always "in and out of prison."
  • Strong Bad's line "Hey, The Cheat... I bet you're not scared of that Bear holding a Shark" is a reference to date, in which he scares The Cheat with a wooden cutout of the Bear Holding a Shark that pops out from behind the Fence in Strong Badia. The Cheat is also scared when it pops out in myths and legends.
  • Strong Bad claiming one of the pictures is from his childhood could be a small example of him rewriting history.
  • This is another reference to wetting the bed.
  • The page title is "The Crazy Dress 'Em Ups".

[edit] Real-World References

  • Strong Bad asks Homestar if he ate Luigi, one of the Mario Brothers. The other person in the photograph was dressed up as Mario. Homestar's comment that Luigi tasted like mushrooms is a reference to the mushroom power-ups in the Mario games that were activated when the player touched them.
