Cheer Up, Hamlet! Paper Doll

Cheer Up, Hamlet! is a paper doll available for free online from Les Vieux Jours, and for which there are 16 costumes plus sundry accessories and counting. An amusing diversion, the makers at last know their Shakespeare, and find proper quotes from the play to juxtapose each image. Obviously, there's the classic look:
Alternate wear based on lines from the play:
(That's a sweet Horatio.)

Some jokes are best appreciated by fans of certain actors who have played the role.
And then there's the completely outlandish...
But Hamlet IS an avenger, right?

For more costumes, accessories, and humor, in larger sizes, check out the website.

I love this! Totally printing some of these out :-)

I ran across your blog when searching for screenshots of various Hamlet deaths for a post for my read-along of Hamlet I'm hosting right now, and wow, what a treasure trove of Hamletness your blog is! Really enjoying reading back through your posts -- I'm sure I'll be commenting on more posts.

I look forward to it!

My initial project is done, which is why there haven't been any new posts in a while, but you never know when they'll start up again.
