Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog is another instant cult-classic show directed by Joss Whedon. Starring Neil Patrick Harris as the one and only Dr. Horrible, this musical blog chronicles his journey to become a super-villain. With every great villain there has to be a valiant hero, or anti-hero in this case. With the secret identity named Captain Hammer, Harris is brilliantly contrasted by Whedon’s favorite actor Nathan Fillion. Dr. Horrible’s arch nemesis in life and in romance, they both share the same love interest in a shy girl named Penny, played by Felicia Day.
Captain Hammer’s costume is one of the more simple cosplay options. The main components are his iconic Captain Hammer logo tee-shirt (most commonly in black or navy blue), his light-grey cargo pants and his black tactical boots. Secondary costume parts include his black leather gauntlet gloves and a tactical black canvas belt with a silver buckle. Below we have compiled all of the items you will need to create your own successful Captain Hammer costume.
