Here's the official forum topic for Fan 'Stumes '17!

It seems like post-hiatus Fan Costumes have been much more entertaining and creative than before, and this one did not fail to disappoint! ...Wait, that's a bad thing. It sounded good when I thought of it. How about, this one didn't not fail to disappoint! I mean, it... it wasn't disappointing. Anyway, this was my flavorite 'Stumes. I liked the fact that there were more obscure ones this year. I also liked stounch.

I do find it amusing when Strong Bad comes up with Homsar quotes in relation to the costumes.

In the past, he gave us these:
"I'm the make-money magnate!"
and
"I taped my hat to the door!"
and
"I stick a Q on the wall by the dream catchers!"

"I'm a tall kitty in a pumpkin bag!"
and
"Don't froth up, I unplugged the papasan!"

I wonder what other quotes he'll think of next year.

I agree with Strong Bad... some of these fans did a really impressive job with the costumes! I think all of them were at least reasonably good, and most of them were better than that. Strong Bad's remarks were pretty good, but some of the previous years were definitely better on that count. I give it 4/5.

Looks like Strong Bad immediately recognized the "System is Bald" one as the techno reference. That's interesting since you never see a keyboard in the techno email.

The Strong Sad and Marzipan (as Log Lady) one was really good.

I don't recall if Old Timey Strong Bad actually had some "Tricks and Treats" sign... in that case that's some creative thinking by that person, that really does seem like an old timey thing.

The Il Cartographer and Gardenboy one, yup that won the contest.

Regarding Strong Bad's comments on the crappy phone picture quality.
Megapixels schegapixels, after a point you're limited by the quality of the camera. Cranking more resolution into the tiny lens of a phone camera won't get you a good image any more than taking a color picture of a black-and-white image gives it color. The lens is simply too small, and the quality isn't as good. For a good indoor picture you need an actual camera. If actual cameras didn't considerably outperform phone cameras, then they wouldn't cost that much because nobody would buy them. That stuff costs that much for a reason, because when you need it, it's worth it. Of course, you can't force a big lens into a phone... then it would just be too big.

Nope, it's original. That person's just really creative.

Once again, that really was creative thinking on the "Tricks and Treats" Old Timey sign.

I noticed on the comments of the Youtube for this toon.

Yes! My boyfriend & I were Dnd Greg & WhatsHerFace! No one at the party got our costumes, and one very drunk girl got mad when he tried to explain what we were, she cut him off yelling, "It doesn't mean ANYTHING! It DOESN'T mean ANYTHING!!!" XD And yes, I do like Pavement! And... cloth?

However, he doesn't have any vids/pictures on his channel that confirm this, not that we'd be able to tell anyway.
