Captain Hammer / Genderbent
First things first, if you haven’t seen Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog then you are absolutely missing out and should go fix that right now. I can wait!
We good? Okay, great.
This is one of those costumes that just felt like I had to do it especially seeing how the very first costume I ever wore to Dragon*Con was Captain Hammer Groupie #1. Last fall, I’d finally gotten the Captain Hammer shirt and had been tossing around the idea of trying to do a “cute” genderswapped version of this costume when I found out I was going to have to work Halloween weekend and by work, I mean move heavy boxes all night. I’m always reluctant to give up dressing up on Halloween so putting together the costume you see above seemed like the best idea.
The photoshoot is courtesy of Heather of House Zhobot and was a ridiculous amount of fun despite the heat. Thankfully, Captain Hammer is one of those costumes where you can make all of the ridiculous faces and it’s still 100% in character.
