Nerd Porn: Captain Jack Harkness Bedroom Cosplay Made Easier

The Omni-Sexual, Immortal Torchwood operative, Captain Jack Harkness has taught us all one very important lesson about clothes.  In any century or on any alien planet — clothes can come off very rapidly!

Although you may not have the swagger to model a replica of Captain Jack’s famous and battle-worn military coat to the guy who works at the post-office, or the elderly woman at the grocery checkout, you can now cosplay to your hearts content in your very own bedroom!

Available from Forbidden Planet on November 15th is the Captain Jack Harkness Towel Robe!  The robe is based on the coat worn by John Barrowman in early episodes of Torchwood and Doctor Who.  It even comes with the matching buttons and epaulettes to make you feel even more authentic while you pretend to fight off the Sontaran Invasion of your bathroom, or lay under your bed pretending to be mistakenly buried alive for 1,847 years!!

The final details are still being fine-tuned, so the picture may not match the final product.  Even if it’s not an exact replica, most people who will want to pretend to be Captain Jack Harkness won’t be wearing it for long, anyway.

Available from Forbidden Planet, priced at £49.99, the coat is not guaranteed to make you more attractive to the ladies, the men, the robots, the ghosts, the aliens or any combination thereof.  The company is also not responsible for the fit of the robe, should you evolve into a giant head in a jar in the far future.

About the Author

Brent Kincade has often wondered if there was an alternate universe where Aquaman was instead called Waterhombre. He also spends a fair amount of his waking life patiently waiting for friends to mention a Thunderdome so he can roll his eyes and plead, "Can't we just get BEYOND Thunderdome??" (Six times, thus far.) His first comic book was Spidey Super Stories #4 in 1974, his first Star Trek episode was "City On The Edge of Forever" in 1975, his first Doctor Who was "The Visitation" in 1984. Once when he was young, he stashed his vinyl Halloween Spider-Man costume in the neighbor lady's shrubs and was later caught red-handed, crawling into the shrubs to change into costume because he had, "Heard a cry for help". He's a father, an artist, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and usually pretty handy in a pinch. Brent requests the story of his days be co-written by Harlan Ellison, Steven Moffat and Neil Gaiman, drawn by John Romita, scored by Ben Folds and riffed on by the fine folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000.
