I made this fifties Dr. Horrible dress as a “quick costume” to wear to meet Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day at Denver Comic Con, but ended up loving it so much that I also shot some pin-ups with it!
I designed this costume myself based on Dr. Horrible’s costume from the web musical “Dr. Horrible’s Singalong Blog.” I wanted to reimagine his iconic lab coat as a fifties-style A-line dress. The clutch was inspired by the briefcase of wonderflonium that Dr. Horrible steals in the musical!
