Joss Whedon is one of my favorite directors, and one of my very favorite Joss Whedon projects — besides Buffy, of course — is the internet musical miniseries Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. I love it so much that sometimes I pull up the lyrics and make Aaron sing the Billy and Penny duet “My Eyes” with me, over and over, and he does, which just shows how much he loves me, and that he is a very, very tolerant man.
Anyway. For Christmas this year, I made my brother – who introduced me to Dr. Horrible – a Captain Hammer shirt. (Captain Hammer is Dr. Horrible’s nemesis.) Then I made Captain Hammer shirts for me and Aaron, just for good measure. They look like this:
Blue shirt is Croft&Barrow from Kohl’s. Black shirt is a Lane Bryant tee with my own felt applique. Jeans are Lane Bryant. Red shoes are from Wal-Mart.
I’ve worn this outfit to class a handful of times in hopes that it would draw out some other nerds, but no luck so far. Disappointing.
Why did I feel the need to pose like Artie, the Strongest Man in the World, for this picture? I have no idea.
All I know is, These are not the hammer.
