[edit] Transcript

{The words "More Halloween Costumes" are displayed at the top of the screen against a blue background. Dominating the screen is a picture of a man dressed as Strong Bad (whose head is somewhat distended), standing in front of an office building.}

STRONG BAD: Dear Strong Bad, how's your miserable job at the depressing faceless office park? Oh, pretty good, Geraldine. Today they let me stand out in the parking lot and stretch my head during my seven-minute lunch break. If I'm lucky, I'll get to work here for ten years with no promotion and then get laid off.

{The picture changes to a man dressed in peasant robes. His head is made to look like it's on fire, and in his hands he holds a drink and a medium-size Trogdor plushie. The datestamp in the corner reads "10/22/2005".}

STRONG BAD: Whoa, a burning peasant and Trogdor partying together in perfect harmony! And a full nine days before Halloween even.

{The picture changes to three gourds in front of a pumpkin. The gourds are painted with the likenesses of Coach Z, The King of Town, and Marzipan. In front of each gourd is the corresponding official figurine.}

STRONG BAD: {in "public radio" voice} Oh, and next on the worthless arts and crafts shopping channel, the least popular Homestar Runner characters gourd collection. Nothing completes an old lady vestibule quite like them.

{The picture changes to a child wearing a The Cheat costume. The child's feet are visible below the costume, and The Cheat's head is formed from a hat.}

STRONG BAD: Aah! The Cheat! Some kind of adorable baby is bursting out of you!

{The picture changes to a person in a Bubs costume standing in an office space, with cubicles and decorated tables visible in the background. Bubs's head is quite round, and his arms are somewhat deformed, as Strong Bad notes.}

STRONG BAD: Come on, man, Bubs has flipper arms, not tentacle arms. Those things look deadly, like they could pry the shell off a... mollusk... in no time flat. Now, go enjoy the crappy Halloween decorations we put up in the cafeteria. Amanda from sales worked all morning on those.

{The picture changes to show a daytime shot of two young women holding a large Strong Bad head between them. They seem quite happy with whatever they're about to do.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, yeah. That's the way to get decapitated, man. Couple of young ladies to cuddle up with my giant severed head...

{The picture changes to a nighttime shot of the same Strong Bad head, only now it's suspended in midair and a young blindfolded woman is swinging at it with a stick.}

STRONG BAD: Uh—oh, wait a minute, now, girls, what's going on here?!

{The picture changes again, and the Strong Bad head, now clearly revealed to be a piñata, has been destroyed and its contents spilled. A young blindfolded person stands nearby, still holding the stick.}

STRONG BAD: Aaah! My poor husky head! Were there at least any Twixes in there?!

{The picture changes to a Mr. Shmallow amidst a decorated table.}

STRONG BAD: A Mr. Shmallow costume?! Are you kidding me? Were you trying to lose friends this Halloween?

{The picture changes to show a person dressed as Trogdor, complete with arm, wingalings, and fire, although Strong Bad remarks that the quality of the body is not quite up to par.}

STRONG BAD: I said "S and more different S"! Not 7 or... more different... crescent wrench. And is that limp pantyhose worm supposed to be a beefy arm? Why don't you walk back there to the China Express and get them to fill that thing with teriyaki chicken. And then we'll go to Spencer's Gifts.

{The picture changes to a split shot of a pumpkin in a kitchen and the same pumpkin with the lights out and lit from inside by a candle. The creature from the Jibblies Painting has been carved into the pumpkin.}

JIBBLIES PAINTING: {menacing whisper} Come on in heeere.

STRONG BAD: Uh-oh, that thing is way more evil in pumpkin form. {straining} Must... fight... jibblies! Can't... hold... on... much... longer! A-jibblie-jibblie!

{The picture changes to show three kids sitting on some steps and holding their candy baskets. They are dressed as Strong Bad, Homestar, and The Cheat.}

STRONG BAD: Aww, Homestar babies! Check 'em out, they're just like real life! The Strong Bad kid is like, "Ooh! Feel my wrath!" And the Homestar kid is just totally clueless, like, "I wike candies." And then The Cheat is like, "Whoa, I bet I could swipe that plasma screen over there."

{The picture changes to a close-up of a chocolate labrador wearing a Homestar Runner red star shirt and a blue beanie.}

STRONG BAD: Ohh. That is animal cruelty. Could that dog possibly be more miserable? I bet if old Rover left some sweet spots on that carpet they'd take him out of that ridiculous geddup. Come on, boy. Leave a sweet spot! Just a little sweet spot!

{The picture changes to show two young women. The one on the right is dressed in a black girdle and hose, and the one on the left is wearing a tight Homestar red star shirt, a blue beanie, tight red short shorts, white thigh-high hose, and platform heels with blue on the bottom.}

STRONG BAD: Ha-a, dar dar dar dar DA-A!! So confused... what to think?? Hot Homestar?!? My brain is splitting in half!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, hey Strong Bad!

STRONG BAD: Daa! You get outta here!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Whoa, you sound tense. Do you want me to give you, like, a back rub or anything?

STRONG BAD: Uh... yes! No! I... don't know! Next picture, next picture!!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I think this is the last one, sweetie.

STRONG BAD: WAAAAA!! {trails off as though he's running away}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I should probably stop calling everybody "sweetie".

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • The name "More Fan Costumes" refers to a similar feature for Halloween 2003: Fan Costume Commentary.
  • A mollusk is any of a variety of chiefly marine invertebrates, typically characterized by a soft, unsegmented body encased in a protective shell. The octopus, a mollusk which lacks the characteristic shell, has tentacles which it occasionally uses to pry open shelled mollusks to feed on them.

WAY more evil.
  • In the third picture of the piñata, Strong Bad refers to his head as "husky", just as it was described in modeling.
  • The monster on the pumpkin is The Rocoulm from bottom 10 (which gave Strong Bad the Jibblies then, too).
  • Strong Bad's quote "S and more different S" is from dragon.
  • Fan Costume Commentary also features something which Strong Bad calls a "severed head," which is in reality a Strong Sad pumpkin.
  • Fan Costume Commentary also had Strong Bad's first costume comment in the form of an email.
  • Homestar offers to give Strong Bad a back rub, despite his lack of visible arms.

[edit] Real-World References

  • Spencer Gifts is a novelty store commonly found in many North American shopping malls.
