This article is about the museum feature. For the feature updated weekly from 2004–2009, see Weekly Fanstuff.

Fan Stuff is a an image gallery collecting fan-submitted Homestar Runner creations, presented alongside commentary from The Brothers Chaps. Many of the creations are MS Paint illustrations, with tattoos, jack-o-lanterns, and cakes as other recurring works. Fan Stuff was collected in the Museum until an update on on February 14, 2006 removed it from the Museum menu. The gallery is still hosted on homestarrunner.com, accessible through direct links.

New entries stopped being posted to Fan Stuff by the end of 2002. From 2004 through 2009, fan works were featured through the more selective Weekly Fanstuff; fan's Halloween costumes have been featured in a mostly-annual showcase. Current fan works are occasionally featured through the @StrongBadActual social media page.

Description Caption Link
A Strong Bad jack-o-lantern. The eyes and mouth are carved out, while the rest of the face is painted on. It uses the dramatic shading and chin spiral seen in the Strong Bad 404 Error Page. Bailey Hobbes totally made this Strong Bad pumpkin, I swear. Page 1
Another Strong Bad jack-o-lantern, with a ruler placed in front of it to demonstrate the pumpkin is well over a foot wide. Again, only the eyes and mouth are carved out and the mask details are painted on. Jebus made this one. Lookit the size of that ruler! Page 2
A Strong Bad jack-o-lantern, illuminated and glowing in a dark room. Parts of the design are only partially carved through the pumpkin, giving the mask levels of depth. Strong Bad only wishes he looked this cool. courtesy Skip Evans. Page 3
A rough, potentially homemade, tattoo of Coach Z's head with "GREAT" and "JORB" arcing above and below his head. Check this out! Neil cut up his flesh in the name of Coach Z. Page 4
A sheet cake featuring a portrait of Strong Bad drawn in frosting. Jay Gordon had a very Strong Bad birthday thanks to his pal Erika. Page 5
An MS Paint illustration of Strong Bad standing in a field, saying "Hello, Crap For Brains, I am Strong Bad!! You are so freakin' stupid. You are the creepiest thing I have ever seen!". A handwritten label "Strong Stupid" points at him. Laura and Caroline are proficient in Microsoft Paint. Page 6
A man rolls up his sleeve to reveal a Homestar Runner tattoo on his upper arm. A blue wavey band encircles his bicep, starting on either end of Homestar. This fellow got a for-real Homestar tat. Page 7
An illustration of a cat-like cartoon character with large eyes, big ears, and spotted fur. Stephie made us a new character! Is he your flavourite? Page 8
A leg tattoo of a scene from A Jorb Well Done: dejected Coach Z sitting on a bench with Strong Bad, Homestar (in his "fat body" design), and Marzipan standing by. The tattoo only uses black outlines without color or fills. Rich Gaccione's shin isn't cut out to say the word job. Page 9
A child's drawing of Homestar Runner, done on lined paper. Homestar's hat is red with a blue star, the star on his shirt is blue, and his legs are orange with yellow soles. Dean Webb's son drew this. Homestar should definitely have orange legs. Page 10
Three fans dressed as Marzipan, Homestar, and Strong Bad. The Strong Bad Screensaver can be seen on a computer in the background. Dani, Nick, and Steve even dressed up as our characters!
What have YOU done for us lately?

A small statue of Homestar built from Lego bricks. Images show a front and side view of the figure. Our friend B.A. keeps his legos in ziplock bags. It's awesome. Page 12

Two people — a young boy and a man — winking their left eyes and raising their right eyebrow. It looks like these guys (Cory and Eric) can't do the raise one eyebrow thing so they have to shut one eye instead. That's okay. E for Effort. Page 15
Three images of Homestar Runner edited to resemble pop-culture figures:
  • Hometony Hawk Pro Skater: wearing a t-shirt, shorts, kneepads, skate shoes, and holding a skateboard
  • madman homestar: wearing a skintight suit with a red lighting-bolt-shaped exclamation mark and black boots, with a zigzag mark on his forehead
  • big guy homestar: glowing red eyes and dark blue circuit lines across his body
Chris Paluszek dressed up these Homestars. Page 16
Homestar as Neo from The Matrix, captioned "WHAT IS THE HOMESTAR?" (a parody of the "WHAT IS THE MATRIX?" marketing campaign for the movie). Warren drew Homestar dressed up as Michael Jackson from the 'Bad' video, probably. Page 17
A partially-demolished wall reveals the reverse of the drywall on the opposite wall. A doodle of Homestar Runner can be seen on the drywall, with "This is Andrew's room, DO NOT PUNCH!!!" written above the drawing. A cleaver is stuck into the carved-out wall. The Big Dabrowski and his roommates totally tore up the walls of their college townhouse in the name of Homestar. Nice cleaver. Page 18
An illustration of a wedding between Strong Bad and a blue-skinned cartoon woman ("Freakajo"), labeled "Joined in the bonds of Holy CRAPimony...", drawn by animator Joanna Davidovich.

Strong Bad's speech bubble is transcribed in the caption. "Oh man, this is getting pretty freakin' weird. As soon as this blue chick pays me my 5 bucks, I am outta here, man." Page 19
Three images of edited warning signs featuring Homestar Runner characters:
  • Three signs indicating camels, Homestar Runner, and kangaroos crossing over the next 96 km of road
  • A triangular warning sign on a fence with a silhouette of Coach Z
  • A warning sign with the "SB" icon from the Strong Bad Desktop Theme. Labeled "Warning: Strong Bad", the sign reads "You run the risk of having your crappy face punched in".
Brandon saw these signs and they opened up his mind. Page 20
"Apolo Homestar Ohno", Homestar in a red speed-skating suit (similar to Theme Song Video) wearing goggles and with "USA" emblazoned on his thigh. The caption refers to the 2002 Winter Olympics. I didn't watch much winter olympics but Stephanie sure did! Page 21
A collage of two drawings:
  • Homestar as Super Saiyan Goku

Marica made Homestar Anime style. Or as I call it, "sleepy eyes". Page 30

Homestar and company perform Macbeth. Um, and some fruit on a table I guess. Page 37

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • The Email FAQ clarifies that the comments on the 17th ("Michael Jackson from the 'Bad' video") and 22nd ("Ken from Street Fighter but with Guile's hair") images are intentionally incorrect: "We know. We've seen the movie and the cartoon. It's a joke. Now leave us alone."

Remarks

  • Many illustrations are created with MS Paint, a crude image editing software included with Microsoft Windows. Later captions express a wish for more people to use Photoshop, a far more advanced program.
  • Rich Gaccione (9, 39) and The Big Dabrowski (18, 25) have multiple Fan Stuffs featured.
  • In the 11th photo, Steve is wearing oven mitts as part of his Strong Bad costume. In halloweener, Strong Bad suggested that "oven mitts will do" for a Strong Bad costume if one does not have boxing gloves.
  • The caption on the 13th photo prints Pom-Pom's name with a hyphen.
