I'm in a shadowcast, and because we didn't have enough people to make a costume change for Dr Horrible, the quick changes were covered by a puppet:

Made of flannel (which, in retrospect, I wouldn't suggest, but everything else was already in my house, and I got the flannel on sale, so he effectively cost $1.00 to make), cardboard and felt for the mouth and features, gold puffy fabric paint and darker antique acrylic for the hair (I didn't have yellow or brown) his shirt was a toddler's shirt cut down to size that I wish I had had time to mend a bit, the med symbol was drawn on by hand with fine point sharpies. The goggles were made of coke bottle tops and felt, and more

And here is a photo of him in action at the show:

I also made many of our other props for the show, including a crappy freeze ray (Daughter's broken water gun + acrylics)

And a mini captain hammer for the scene during "Brand New Day" when he gets stepped on. His paint job was done the night before, and again, a toy stolen from my daughter that I had to replace an arm (taken from McD's Astro Boy) cuz the dog had chewed it.

I took one look at that puppet and asked myself "Is that Dr. Horrible!?"
Great job! Shadowcasting sounds like a hoot!
