The Fancy vs. Nasty Update is an unofficial fan update created by Mister Royzo. It has been mentioned by the TF2 Official Blog.[1]

The Australian Christmas update brought most of the items (some having been altered) into the game officially, with other items being added into the game with the Replay Update.


Story, Day One

The Spy receives the Administrator's letter.

The RED team receives a letter from the Administrator:

Dear RED Mercenaries

Congratulations. For the first time in this disastrous chain of misfortune I call your 'employment' there's actually been success. The past few weeks you have been especially victorious and I feel compelled to motivate this kind of behavior.

I've prepared a dinner party for all of you in a fancy restaurant I regularly enjoy called "L'Appétit", though I highly doubt the likes of you ever go there. Since this will be the first time you're going to an actual grown-up event I'll inform you of the etiquette that's involved:

Don't take weaponry with you, don't yell, don't murder, don't talk about your job and I better not see your military-cut scalp.

Provided you don't develop hair as impossibly fast as my dog seems to that means you'll have to get fancy headgear before you join us. See to it that you do. Don't disappoint me.
The Administrator
The Soldier responds with a letter to his team.

The BLU team doesn't take kindly to this revelation, and the Soldier responds to this by writing a letter to his own team.

Dear Co-workers

Listen up Ladies! As if our failure streak isn't bad enough already, a little birdy told me that those dress-wearing RED pansies are being rewarded for their obvious cheating! Not surprisingly they're playing dress-up with hats for a nancy pantsy tea-party in L'Appétit!

How about we rough up their tea-time a little? Have our own kind of party, BLU style! Get your nastiest, most brutal weapon of choice and meet me at the back of this French-named circus!

If you're too much of a pansy for close-quarter combat you should just stay home and read your girl magazines.
The Soldier

Day Two

The RED Spy, Pyro, and Heavy are seen walking into L'Appétit wearing their new hats. For the Pyro, it's the Madame Dixie, for the Heavy, the Coupe D'isaster, and for the Spy, the Détective Noir.

Meanwhile, around the back of the restaurant, the BLU Medic and Demoman are waiting anxiously and wielding their new weapons. For the Medic, it's the Krankensage, and for the Demoman, a tongue-twisting Claidheamohmor.

Madame Dixie

The Madame Dixie

The Madame Dixie is a downloadable headwear model replacement for the Pyro. It is a purple tea hat with pink roses on the front and is supposedly modeled after retro ladies' flower-decked headwear from the time period of the game's setting. Historically, tea hats were worn by women, hinting at the fact that the Pyro's gender is ambiguous and widely speculated to be female.

Can be downloaded to replace the models of the: Ghastly Gibus, Pyro's Beanie, Brigade Helm, Respectless Rubber Glove, or Triboniophorus Tyrannus.

This item was made official in the Australian Christmas update.

Trivia

  • The image of the Soldier's letter reads quite differently than the text shown in the update:
I hope the TF2 community won't be able to read

this because I'm dedicated to writing silly things
here. Then again, who looks for easter eggs in an
unofficial community update. Oh lord this text
will show up even bigger. Let's hope they don't
have that fancy CSI software people sh[ink spot]
to have on TV. Or paint for that matter. Or a
magnifying glass. Oh will they be disappointed
when they actually find out what's written here.
They must have thought it was the [release?]
date for Episode 3 & they actually went to get
the CSI software, Oh dear. Did I just delay some-
thing? I hope not. Speaking of future Valve [titles?],
I wonder what Portal 2's like. It's rumoured to be
showcased at the next E3. I hope so, last E3 was
rather disappointing in the Valve area. Oh well.
Oh dear, will this wall of text match up to the
one on the website? Maybe I should see.

Signed,
The Soldier
