No, it can't be anyone from Hot Fuzz on account of it's too recent a movie (it came out in 2007).

Coach Z = Erica Badu
Bubs = Samuel L. Jackson from Black Snake Moan
Strong Mad = Definitely a Thwomp
Strong Bad = Predator (to correspond with last year)
The Cheat = looks a little rounder than usual maybe some sort of ball
Homestar = Beakman from Beakman's World
Marzipan = not a clue
Pom Pom = not a clue
Strong Sad = not a clue (but looks like he's wearing a beret)
The Poopsmith = definitely Zoidberg
The KOT = Hello Kitty
Homsar = Captain CAAAVEMAAAAAAAN!!!!

This is my first post and those are my guesses!

Why not? Pom Pom is cool enough to dress as something from as recent as last year.

I don't know, I just don't think they should dress up anyone too recent. The most recent year that someone dressed was in 2005 when Homsar was a character from a Zelda game that came out in 2000, five years earlier.

Anyway, in terms of the years released of these costumes, according to IMDB, here's what I'm guessing, so far:

  • "Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels" (1977)
  • Super Mario Bros. 3 (1988) (VG)
  • "Futurama" (1999)

Strong Man is, I agree, almost guarenteed to be a Thwomp.
The Poopsmith is likely Dr. Zoidberg, and Homsar Captain Caveman.

I personally wouldn't be surprised if Homestar was Chuckie from Rugrats with that crazy hair he has, though other peoples' suggestion of Edward Scissorhands is certainly possible.

According to those characters who we know whose costumes are, has anyone's ideas been picked?

Now, what are your speculations on the toon?

I'd have to say a parody of Great Pumpkin.

These are my thoughts

:bubs: as Ebenezer Scrooge
:sm: as a Thwomp
:cheat: as Pikachu or himself
:pom: as the Punisher
:kot: as Heathcliff or Hello Kitty
:poop: as a Martian from War of the Worlds
:sb: as not the Predator
:hr: as Einstein
:homsar: as some kind of caveman (probably from The Flintstones or B.C.) Oh! He could be the jhonka!

Wasn't his resemblance to Pikachu already done (or at least strongly inferred to) in Strong Bad Email #157?

Whatever it is, they should probably be more laid back (like with Halloween Fairstival) and less serious than they were last year.

Strong Mad as Twhomp is pretty much an amazing idea and I kept thinking he was a giant Cinammon Toast Crunch piece LOL. I think everyone guessed that right, as well as Homsar, KOT and Poopsmith's costumes.

But if I had to take wild guesses at a few others:

Bubs = One of the bikers from Road Rash. But everyone will think he is Ghost Rider?

Homestar = I really have no clue but I'ma guess Edward Scissorhands too.

Strong Bad as Heath Ledger as The Joker = And everyone will give him a hard time for being the Joker the year "Everybody is gonna be the Joker."

Well, :cheat: 's never been Pikachu in a Halloween toon. And his resemblence to Pikachu was why I said that, since he doesn't appear to be wearing a costume.

I know for a fact that Strong Bad will not be the Joker; he has already dressed up as him, albeit the one portrayed by Cesar Romero on the old Batman TV show of the 1960s.

Now, this is just wishful thinking, mind you, but I'd like SB to be either Gene Simmons (of the band KISS) or J.R. Ewing (from the TV show Dallas).

I can see the Easter egg now, after you click on Strong Bad (were he to be Gene Simmons):

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, Strong Bad! Nice overly-used makeup guy's costume there!
STRONG BAD: Could you possibly be a little more specific?
BUBS: He's Ozzy Osbourne!
STRONG BAD: No, I am not!
THE CHEAT Meh meh MEH meh meh!
STRONG BAD: No, The Cheat, I am not David Lee Roth from Van Halen! I'm Gene Simmons from KISS!
STRONG SAD: I like Gene Simmons. She was great in "Guys and Dolls"... and "Spartacus"... and "Elmer Gantry"...
STRONG BAD: You keep out of this, Dumbo!

Now, the "Gene Simmons" Strong Sad talks about actually refers to actress Jean Simmons. And Dumbo is the title character in the Disney movie of the same name.

I honestly can't see it being Pikachu, if it was, you'd be able to clearly make out the ears and tail.

Fact is, TBC think they look a lot alike.

How much you wanna bet I already know that. lol. Doing it all over again as a different joker was the joke. But I too doubt it'll happen.

Even though it's too new, I think it would be fun if Strong Sad was wearing a lab coat to go as Dr. Horrible (he has a PhD in Horribleness).

Actually...

Revival of Something Deceased = 3 Times Halloween Funjob
Trying To Scare Someone = Halloween Fairstival

i will admit, thats wahat i thought at first, but then someone said predator, and i guess i can see it, i've never seen the movies, sooo. . . . . . .
I'M NOT ALONE. *cries tears of joy*

And you know, it would be so totally awesome and ironic if SB did dress up as Predator, coz to me that totally seems like something TBC would do.

A whole lotta people would have to agree (not me though, I can think of 3 or 4 yellow rodents off the top of my head). The thing is, there's nothing about the silhouette implying TC's dressing up as him.

And in other news, good to see the forum's back up in time for teaser speculation! I was scared Halloween would come and go without us arguing over something superficial ;)

Now, mind you, this costume suggestion clearly comes from left field, but maybe Marzipan is... Gloria Estefan...??

Like I said, it's out of left field.

:sm: Thwomp
:hr: Edward Scissorhands
:marzi: Stevie Ray Vaughn. definitely.

:coachz: Ha. I hope he's Miss Cleo
:bubs: I'm going with the Samuel L. Jackson theory
:sm: Thwomp
:sb: Darth Vader? I don't know.
:cheat: Looks like he has a beaver tail, so I'm going with those beavers from Donkey Kong.
:hr: Maybe Edward Scissorhands, but maybe Tim Burton himself.
:marzi: Jack White?
:pom: The Boondock Saints guy
:sad: No Idea.
:poop: Zoidberg.
:kot: Hello Kitty. Just because that would be awesome
:homsar: Captain Caveman.

At any rate, I'm freakin' excited. The costumes never fail to crack me up. Watching the Ween Toon is a tradition at my house!

I don't think the Cheat has a beaver tail, that's Homestar's foot. And I really doubt he's Pikachu, despite how similar they look, the fact is Pikachu has two big ears sticking up above his head, and Teh C doesn't. If he were Pikachu, the ears would be there, and they're clearly not.
