Left to right: Brandt (Philip Seymour Hoffman’s character,) Unchecked Aggression (see below), a whale song tape, Larry’s Social Studies test (also pictured above,) an eight-year-old, a Brother Shamos, and a tumbleweed. Almost all of these costumes are not meant to represent characters but rather props or references to specific lines of dialogue. Brandt won third place in the overall costume contest, and the whale tape placed first. A woman dressed as Peter Stormare’s character Karl Hungus, a few pictures down, won second place.
