I'd say The Cheat is going as The Cheat.

:coachz: someone with an afro
:bubs: A prison guard?
:sm: Thwomp
Predator- red herring
:cheat: no costume
:hr: - a punk rocker?
:marzi: - Stevie Ray!
:pom: - Cowboy
:sad: A monk?
:poop: unknown
:kot: Hello Kitty
:homsar: Captain Caveman

Here's what I think.
:coachz: - Obviously some rapper... he has a misshapen afro. Wouldn't it be funny if he went as Peacy P? Although obviously he isn't.
:bubs: - Ehr... some guy with a pocketwatch?
:sm: - A Thwomp
:sb: - Who knows, since we all know that's not his real costume.
:cheat: - The Cheat! I don't see any costume there.
:hr: - The only thing I can get into my head is Neopets' Mutant Jubjub. Idk why.
:marzi: - Some... weird... songwriter... with a hat? Idk. :P
:pom: - Maybe a cowboy.
:sad: - Some discreet French artist..?
:poop: - Zoidberg.
:kot: - Hello Kitty! <3
:homsar: - A caveman.
There are my lame not-really-guesses. What do you think?

And tell me, how will he have scissorhands if he doesn't have any hands? :P Edward Scissorhands is pretty awesome, though.

I think you're dead on. There are two bumps on King's silhouetted head that matches the place of Hello Kitty's bow. Add that and whiskers and yep!

Let me take this one step further.

I bet that not only we've guessed it, but somewhere in the toon, a character will say, "Hello, Kingy!"

Awexome, I was thinking Stevie Ray for Marzipan, too. That would be great. Strong Mad definitely looks like a Thwomp, and Zoidberg is a perfect fit for the Poopsmith.

I just noticed something while writing this post: the caveman idea for Homsar is probably correct, but I think he's Captain Caveman. The huge club fits, plus if you look closely you can see his cape, and his big nose.

Coach Z appears to have a afro, but that doesn't narrow it down much, especially for him. Bubs doesn't have much that's notable, except the chain. Whatever the Cheat is, the costume doesn't change his silhouette. Homestar could be Edward Scissorhands, but I doubt he would be, as he's missing the key feature, hands. No clue on Strong Sad, except he's wearing some kind of coat and has a wig or hat of some sort. The KoT is obviously a cat of some kind, and Hello Kitty seems like the best guess. Pom Pom is interesting. Any number of costumes could include the guns, but those things coming out of his hands below the guns thow me. I can't imagine what they are.

I don't know why people keep saying The Cheat has no costume. It would be completely lame if he didn't. Whatever it is, it just doesn't have a noticeable silhouette.

That's an excellent question. It would be hilarious though.

Those things might not even be connected to the guns. He could be wearing a really elaborate suit with . . . protrusions, for lack of a better word. A belt in the shape of an X is close to what I'm trying to describe...

As for Coach Z, he has an afro and I'm pretty sure he has glasses.

Whatever Bubs is, he looks like he has a helmet on. And the chain appears to be attached to a belt.

Strong Mad, no clue. But after reading the Thwomp suggestion I agree.

Strong Bad looks familiar but I can't figure it out.

The Cheat I don't know but he's probably simply wearing body paint.

Homestar I'm thinking mad scientist?

Marzipan I'm almost thinking like . . . Santana maybe?

Strong Sad . . . for some reason I'm thinking something during the Reinassance or around those times. Dunno, it's just my gut telling me something like that.

Poopsmith I dunno.

Homsar looks familiar . . . I get the feeling I'm gonna recognize him but I can't figure it out.

You know what I just thought of? He should wear some fake arms with big old scissors attached. Then, hilarity ensues.

Post subject:  Re: Halloween '08 (with teaser discussion)

I think that Homestar as Edward would work, and the fact that he dosn't have any arms, the main concept for the costume, would be the joke.

Either nobody would get it, or everybody would be like "HEY, WATCH IT WITH THOSE THINGS!" either way it would be a good sight gag.



Oh, and first post, been reading the board for a while and been watching H*R since Kid's Book.


Howdy.

I think the King of Town is Garfield. Granted, Hello Kitty would be hilarious, but I think Garfield is more suited to the King's character.

Garfield was already done by The Cheat.

:coachz: No clue

:sb: = Predator or a Skarrj from Unreal

The others I can't really make out.

Ohhh yeah. I totally forgot about that. (And thanks for the welcome.)

Now that I look at the lineup again, I can see the hair bow, so he probably is Hello Kitty.

For some reason, my first thought when I saw Strong Sad's silhouette was lunch lady, because the lump on top of his head reminds me of a hairnet. I'm probably very, very wrong, but it would be pretty funny.

Post subject:  Re: Halloween '08 (with teaser discussion)

Sammi S-whatever inspired me to pick Thwomp for Strong Mad.

I agree on Captain Caveman for Homsar.

Coach Z either has a big hat or an afro.

Author:  SnowyFox [ Wed Oct 29, 2008 12:04 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Halloween '08 (with teaser discussion)

Coach Z could be anyone, so I'm not even going to try.
If I had to guess, the chain Bubs is holding is like some kind of mobster/roughneck thing.
Strong Mad is pretty clearly a Thwomp.
Strong Bad is Predator, yeah. Not hard, but also it's clearly not his real costume.
The Cheat could be anyone.
I like the idea of Edward Scissorhands for Homestar.
Marzipan is obviously a guitarrist; I'd have to guess Carlos Santana or Stevie Ray Vaughn, but a guitar and a hat doesn't say much.
I'm fairly sure Pom Pom has two swords on his back. What that makes him, I don't know. Very possibly a video game character. The heavily-armed factor instantly made me wish he was Sergeant Nicholas Angel. Sadly, that's not what the silhouette would imply.
Strong Sad looks kind of like a nurse of some kind. Some medical character, or something obscure, I'd guess.
I'm going with Zoidberg for The Poopsmith as well.
I doubt the King of Town is Hello Kitty. He's probably the mascot for some cat food.
Sure, I'll go with Captain Caveman for Homsar.

So many of the characters do the same kind of costume every year. They should mix it up a little more.

If Pom Pom has swords, he could be a Ninja Turtle.

Post subject:  Re: Halloween '08 (with teaser discussion)

I looked up Zoidberg and now I think that's a logical choice.

What makes me think these are all red herrings? That they will turn out to be cardboard cutouts and the actual costumes will be completely different?

Author:  FishFight [ Wed Oct 29, 2008 12:59 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Halloween '08 (with teaser discussion)

well, all i got to say is that last years teaser and this one is the same, so im guessing that besides Strong Bad, everyone's silouette will match their costume, except for strong bad, which is obvious. His sillouette definately is a reference to last years silouette. And as far as the cheat goes, my guess is that he either has no costume, or TBC didn't have his costume picked out yet. Also, with everyone else, i'm not 100 % on all the costumes, cause like is with their style, they sure have quite a few costumes of people that i dont recognize that are before my time. So my guess is only on the one's i recognize:
:poop: obviously Dr. Zoidberg, he has the mouth tentacles, and the claws, and the same head outline, also, if you look really close, he also has sandals
:kot: not garfield, as that ones already been done, but my guess was heatcliff until someone suggested Hello Kitty, maybe it would be funny to see him dress up as that not knowing what it was, now that would be hilarious
:homsar: Captain caveman, he definately looks the part
:hr: the hair makes him look kinda like Albert Einstein kinda, i'd say Edward Scissorhands, but he doesn't have hands, so i dunno how that will work.
:sm: obviously a Thwomp, he looks the part, and he had the right body for it
:pom: Someone, maybe it was on the wiki itself, suggested deadpool, and that would defintely be right up his alley. and the shape definately fits too.
as far the other guys :bubs: , :coachz: , :marzi: , and :sad: , i've got nothing. And i haven't seen any good guesses as of yet
all i can say is that marzipan will mostlikely cross dress, she's been doing that for the last few years, and Coach Z will mostlikely be a rapper, as he does that as much as marxipan has cross-dressed

Post subject:  Re: Halloween '08 (with teaser discussion)

Well, I like the idea of :hr:=Edward Scissorhands. Homestar seems to be wearing pants that don't cover all of his legs. That could be where his boots begin. Or we could all be WAY OFF!
My other guess is :hr:=Sideshow Bob. Or who knows what...
:poop:=Zoidberg!
:pom:=Dante from Devil May Cry?
:cheatgrin:=Tucan Sam? I drew him as that once and it didn't really require and change in body shape.
:marzi:=Carlos Santana
:coachz:=Dunno...
:bubs:=It's on the tip of my tongue...
:kot:=Hello Kitty
:sad:=Could be spartan, but I personally think that he could be anything.
:homsar:=Es Captain Caveman
:sm:=Total Thwomp!

Post subject:  Re: Halloween '08 (with teaser discussion)

:sb: - Originally thought he looked like Vega from Street Fighter II, but now I can see the Predator too. Especially since last year, he almost went as the Alien...

:sm: - Thwomp or potentially a postage stamp...

:kot: - I thought Garfield at first too (very KoT), but I forgot that Garfield was done. Maybe Garfields evil twin, Heathcliff...

:bubs: - Couldn't guess, but Ghost Rider Bubs would be hillarious...

:poop: - Zoidberg makes sense, with the hands...

:hr: - Edward Scissorhands would play to the whole 'I've got no arms' joke...

:sad: - Who wears a lab/trench coat and a mo-hawk?...

:homsar: - Captain Caveman or Grog from the comic strip, B.C...

:pom: - Johnny Depp from Once Upon a Time in Mexico? The Duke from Boondock Saints?...

No guess on the rest...

Post subject:  Re: Halloween '08 (with teaser discussion)

I'm 100% certain on 4 of them. The rest, not so much.

:coachz: Erykah Badu? I never know his.
:bubs: Still thinking. The head looks like He-Man's sidekick Man-at-Arms.
:sm: Thwomp. No question.
:sb: The silhouette doesn't look anything like Strong Bad, but it does look a lot like a Predator
:cheat: maybe a Cheat Commando?
:hr: um...Yahoo Serious as Young Einstein?
:marzi: The hair should be a clue, but I've got nothing.
:pom: No idea.
:sad: = I'm thinking Dom DeLouise, or Cajun chef Paul Prudomme
:poop: = definitely Dr. Zoidberg (he's got the claws, the pants, and that thing doctors wear on their heads)
:kot: = definitely Hello Kitty (you can see the bow on the right side of his head)
:homsar: = definitely Captain Caveman
