[edit] I'm the first Strong Bad

...and I'm super stoked!

Proof it's me, as per criteria from previous years: Alternate take, A Dalek and I, and me de-masked.

(the thumbnail for the first one won't load for me for some reason, but the picture should show up if you click "full resolution") PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

Where was the picture taken? I know it's a long shot, but it looks really familiar. Looks like some university somewhere. -Bobo the King 17:28, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
It was one of those downtown public parking lots, strategically situated near the Duke Energy Convention Center (in Cincinnati). The picture in the toon was taken soon after we arrived downtown for Cincinnati Comic Expo 2014, and the other two pictures linked to above were taken during the course of the con.

[edit] ENTER HUMIDIBOT!

Is this JUST the first appearance of Humidibot? Will it return? Will it face of against The Cheatbot in no-arms combat? More importantly: shall it receive it's own character page? — 71.94.22.54 (Talk | contribs) 23:23, 10 November 2015 (left unsigned)

It's a one-off joke. It may receive a reference in the future. And since F-Sack got a page of his own, I guess Humidibot will get one too. - Catjaz63 23:27, 10 November 2015 (UTC)
MIGHT get one too. It's not worth one at the moment, or until it becomes more than a one-off. — DeFender1031*Talk 00:00, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] What I Was Going To Put

Hello, everyone. I've been going to this wiki since... I believe when Sbemail virus was released. But I only made an account today because A) I've been active lately, and B) people wouldn't see a jumble of numbers when I put an edit. Frankly, I would like to show in at least part of the wiki what I was typing when Fan Costumes 2015 came out seeing as the transcript was nonexistent when I sent the registration request. Where can I put a huge freakin' bunch of text like that without getting in trouble? The Sandbox? --AeroSnake 03:00, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

You could always use your userpage. PowerFile:Homestar Kamikaze Green Favicon.pngPie

[edit] Sir Stripeyface Halfwhitegloves

  • The costume that Strong Bad complains does not look like him is actually a costume of Sir Hotbod Handsomeface, Strong Bad's alternate persona in Teen Girl Squad Issue 10.

Granted, that did occur to me with the hard hat (and it also explains the jeans, now that I compare), but the mask and gloves are still way off. --Jay (Talk) 22:03, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Subtitles

Please put some Homestar All-In-One subtitles on Fan Costumes '15. --76.177.4.241 15:55, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

Ill start working on it today. Ill repass it maybe tonight or tomorrow morning. (Unless someone else calls dibs on it) Sorry for the delay! - Catjaz63 19:52, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
Subtitles are a-done! - Catjaz63 05:06, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
Wow! Thanks! --76.177.4.241 03:37, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Link to Star Wars in Real-World References

After my simplification of the Star Wars-related fact, Defender1031 changed the link from the Wikipedia page to our Star Wars local page. I feel like the Wikipedia page is the more appropriate link, as our local page deals with the franchise and not the film. The fact itself is referring to a piece of dialog from the film. Which destination should the fact link to? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 19:24, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Oh, come on you guys!

For the love of pete, PLEASE MAKE AN ARTICLE ON HUMIDIBOT! --76.177.4.241 03:42, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Humidibot in costumes depicted

While he definitely belongs in cast, I'm not sure humidibot actually belongs in the list of costumes. My reasoning is as follows: Humidibot was invented in response to there being a random humidifier in the background of one of the costume photos, ergo, Humidibot did not exist as a character at the time when the photograph was take, ergo, the sender could not possibly have intentionally included humidibot, ergo humidibot is not actually a costume being depicted as such. I wanted to bring it up here before just reverting to see what other people think, as it's a little bit of a paradox. — DeFender1031*Talk 22:18, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

I was actually just thinking about this, and yes, the paradox is something that has simply never happened here before, as far as I recall. I feel like it should stay in the Costumes Depicted list for sake of technicality, as Strong Bad did say that it was a Humidibot costume in the cartoon.

[edit] Thomas & Friends

Regarding this edit: I'd like to confirm that this reference wouldn't be included in the wiki because it wasn't a reference made directly by TBC (nor did it seem like they intended for them to be a reference). It just seems like they wound up in the picuture. However, if there is precedent we can bring it back and clean it up (and link it to the Thomas & Friends wikipedia article). --Stux 21:36, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

The rule for background stuff in halloween costumes is that we only document it if TBC themselves reference it in some way, e.g. the time a person wearing a homestar costume is in a picture with someone in a mario costume and strong bad asks if homestar ate luigi. — DeFender1031*Talk 23:00, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
