Babe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Photoshoot & Contest


Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is one of my very favorite books. I love it so much that I read it twice in a row in two days. The movie….alas, notsomuch 🙁

I’ve always been a tomboy and I’ve always liked dressing up as the female version of male characters (e.g. Thor and Batgirl) so a while back I decided that I was going to dress up as Babe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for Halloween. I was way overdue for an HNG photo shoot and after talking it over with a few friends and my fabulous photog buddy Jonny Ups over the biggest frappuccino I’d ever seen (next time I’m buying Jon) we agreed that it would be crazy fun to do a Babe Lincoln shoot. I’m very fortunate to have some hot, nerdy friends so I enlisted the help of my friend Meghan who agreed to be the sexy vampire Henrietta Sturges to my Babe Lincoln.

Yes, I know that I’ve got a fake axe and not a real one. Before you give me a hard time about it there are 3 reasons for this. 1) I couldn’t find a real one that had a wooden handle and not a plastic/rubber/epoxy one and none of my friends had any. 2) Real axes are heavy. Great and fine for chopping wood. Not so great for running and leaping while swinging them over your head. 3) (and most importantly) I was not about to swing a real axe at a good friend of mine. Sorry. Her safety is 10 million times more important to me than holding a real axe is. I’m a theatre person. Safety is paramount. Would I have liked a real one for the times when I’m just standing there? Yes. I refer you back to reason #1. If any of you photoshop pros want to take a stab at photoshopping a real axe in there, have at it!

Hope you enjoy the pictures and that you have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! 🙂

What’s that? You want to win a signed copy of one of these pictures? Ok, fine. There’s a contest after the pics.

My name is Lincoln. Babe Lincoln.


I’m a Vampire Hunter.


This is my bff Henrietta Sturges. She’s a vampire.


Sometimes we get together for tea and training.


It turns out Henrietta doesn’t like tea.


But she does like training.


We practice a lot.


My frustration amuses Henrietta.


Until I get mad and chase after her with my axe.


Sometimes she gets the upper hand.


But I always fight back.


It’s all fun and games. Right, Henrietta?


Training is exhausting.


Afterwards we head back to my house.


To, you know, hang out and stuff.


I like to sit on my porch and admire the scenery.


What? You don’t like scenery?


Henrietta often joins me.


And we share a laugh or two.


She’s an awesome vampire bff.


When she’s not fucking with me.


Until next time, Babe Lincoln out.


A huge thanks to Jonny Ups for taking such smashing pictures again, to Meghan for being up for anything and making it the funnest HNG photo shoot yet, to Mama Jedi for assisting with everything from shoe changes to stovepipe hat holding to lighting gear stabilizing, and to Darcy for being my constant partner in crime.

Now for a little fun.

Leave a comment below and I’ll throw your name into my stovepipe hat for a chance to win one of five autographed 8″x10″ prints from this photo shoot. I’ll pull the names on Halloween night so make sure you leave a comment by then. This is my first ever contest/giveaway type-thing so here’s hoping I’m doing this right.


  1. Geek Outlaw says:

    WOW! That whole shoot came out amazing! Very professional! Looking forward to more photo shoots down the road!

    P.S. You don’t have to enter me in the contest! 😉

    Your NBFF…
    Geek Outlaw

    1. Joy Ollinger says:

      Can I get an autographed photo of you? HAHAHAHAHA!

      1. Geek Outlaw says:

        In a heartbeat! I’m happy to provide a signed photo to the super hot ‘Slave Leia’ from the infamous HNG Batgirl shoot 😉

        The only question is, would you prefer regular or topless?

    2. A Baberaham for the ages!

  2. Joseph says:

    I would so be a vampire, just so you would hunt me down. Just sayin….

  3. Rob Anderson says:

    There are some great photos here, but more importantly, it appears that a lot of fun was had in the shoot. And apparently, no vampires were harmed in the making of this series.

  4. Dan says:

    Pure unadulterated nerdy awesome!

  5. charles erickson says:

    FangTastic photo shoot!!

  6. AquarianM says:

    Pretty awesome, HNG, & damn straight on that axe thing. The prop looks just fine. You two were lookin’ pretty True-blood hot there! Hey, when you get a minute, check out my new blog/podcast/soon-to-be-a-comic-strip, “Palien Green” over at – it’s a sci-fi parody on the classic Roswell-style green/gray alien thing. It’s a hoot.

  7. Jeff Andrus says:

    I never wanted to date Lincoln before, but now….

  8. Joy Ollinger says:

    Great pictures!!! Love the black and white!

  9. john says:

    great photos. first thing i thought of, though, was
    “If she were a president, she’d be Babe-raham Lincoln”

  10. Kyle Enz says:

    Very well done. The flying through the air shot is my favorite. Keep up the good work!

  11. mike kemper says:

    Amazing pics great as usual

  12. Mike Bondra says:

    Now having two geek-tastic daughters of my own, I can quite appreciate the world from your point of view. Thanks for being a positive role model for my girls. LL-n-P.

  13. Charlie says:

    Looks like you guys were having too much fun.
    Stop it.

    (sorry.. I was practicing to be a Republican)

    1. swn says:

      Lincoln was a Republican. So am I. Enjoyed the photo shoot!! (Could do without the uninformed political jabs.)

  14. Deryck Dunn says:

    That leaping photos is amazing. And also my wallpaper 🙂

  15. Jason says:

    Awesome photo shoot! It looks like you had a great time. I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

  16. jamiehupfer says:

    These are stunning. I love they were done in black n white.

  17. Aaron Wilson says:

    These are great, you look awesome!

  18. Mike Major says:

    Really well done shoot. By turns action focused and a bit sexy – which is perfect for a Vampire theme.

    Well done!

  19. Randy Gage (shott gunn) says:

    You must have taken dance or gymnast classes when you were younger to get height like that in your jumping scene?

    Also, how many photos were disregarded…we’d love to see them too 😉

  20. Lee Marohn says:

    Love it! You obviously had a blast. I love them all, but more black & white shots would have been cool.

  21. Joe Mondin says:

    What an incredible photo shoot! Looks like so much fun!
    I have to say that I love the action shot with you in the air the best!! Perfect timing!
    You know what might be cool? Is to make the photos looked old, aged. 🙂 Just a thought.

  22. Ken Camus says:

    Awesome pics!!!! Always love your pics and posts!

  23. Ian F says:

    WOW HNG just pure WOW! 😀

  24. Omar Andrade says:

    Great shoot. Nice location too.

  25. Alan Spell says:

    For scoring signed printsess heaven, yearns a go …..

  26. Bill Pfeifer says:

    These photos are great. I’ve recently started following your blog and your Facebook page, and I have really been enjoying it. You are a talented and funny writer. Keep up the good work.

  27. Hunter Rankin says:

    I’m digging the monochromatic photos!! Definitely makes the last one Brilliant!!

  28. Donna says:

    I loved the shoot. The black and white (and of course the models) looked stunning. I am also a big fan of the book but was really disappointed in the movie. Well done.

  29. Larry Fellin says:

    Awesome pics. Nerdy and hot. Great job to both of you.

  30. Wonderful photos. Kudos to you and your photographer. 🙂

  31. Dan Tisdel says:

    That looks like it was a lot of fun to shoot. Very entertaining as usual…and very hot as usual!

  32. Joe Crawford says:

    Nicely done Baberaham.

  33. I like when you said “To, you know, hang out and stuff.”
    Wondering about the “and stuff” part… Hmmmm… 😉

  34. Steve planty says:

    One of the beat photo shoots yet. Campy but awesome

  35. “Until I chase her with my axe.” I find that an effective way to end laughter also.

  36. James (Shadowmunk) Williams says:

    Gotta admit – My fave is the Leaping attack titled “We practice a lot.”

  37. Keith Charlton says:

    Great photo shoot. So awesome to have nerdy friends that like to play! Looking forward to the next one!

  38. Michael Jameson says:

    I’m so confused. HNG is Babe Lincoln, but my associative mind is now throwing another Lincoln impersonation into my visual mix, by Electric Six: “I want to take you to a gay bar, gay bar…”

    So the question is: which image will stick? Imagining Abe as a gay steam-room Lothario, or as HNG? Please, save me from myself, HNG. I need hard copy. Pick my name from that stove-pipe and let my poor weary imagination forget any Abe but you.

    1. Ha. That popped into my head as well.

  39. Jason Dreyer says:

    Now that’s a president I can stand behind. Great set!

  40. ditchthebun says:

    Awesome shoot! Love the one of you flying through the air… just fantastic! Lot of energy in this shoot it seems, really comes through in the photos. Congrats on a great result. TBH didn’t even notice the axe until you brought my attention to it 🙂

  41. KARL says:

    Looks like you had some fun there. Some nice shots. This would make for a funny short.

  42. McDubbs says:

    Apparently Abe Lincoln vs. Zombies makes Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter look like an Academy Award Winner!

  43. Carlos says:

    Those are some amazing photos. Kudos to all involved.

  44. Pat Foster says:

    thats some crazy stuff. the one picture at a time storyline. Priceless. lol.

  45. Nick says:

    Looks like it was a lot of fun, Tracy. Stop making me nerdgasm! HaHa!

  46. Dan Carbone says:

    Do you believe in past lives and soul mates? Because I had the strongest feeling that we have known each other for a very very long time….

  47. Maik says:

    Looks like fun your photoshooting 🙂

  48. That looks like a pretty epic leaping axe cleave you did in that one shot. Definitely deserves a comment. Awesome shoot, you rock!

  49. I love the leaping shot and the claw/ring on the neck. Cool and sexy at the same time. Way to go!

  50. Haha I always look forward to these photoshoots.

  51. Wayne Evans says:

    Great pics and scenes here. Great book and great costume for you. I would not mind having a signed copy for my nerd collection!

  52. daveprine says:

    Great pix! I suspect it would have been a lot of fun to be a fly on the wall for that shoot.

  53. very cool pics.well taken.keep up the good work.

  54. amazing shoot, very cool, multiple nerdgasms

  55. Joe Bellanger says:

  60. Robert Paldino says:

    Awesome pics! Love them

  61. Mark Valnti says:

    I must win this contest. I have never won a single contest I entered that didn’t require blood or sweat a massive migraine from thinking afterward, so I never put any emotional investment in these kinds of contests. However, if I do not win this one, I will cry.

    Great pics BTW!

  62. Anne says:

    Amazing pics! And you’re right, the book rocked. Haven’t seen the movie, heard it was bad and I’m so afraid of the disappointment. *sigh* Such a nerd-girl problem, I know.

  63. Matt Robertson says:

    Awesome pics 🙂

  71. […] I admittedly didn’t read before taking in the film it’s based on.  Per my NBFF in crime Hot Nerd Girl, when compared to the novel, the movie was about as enjoyable as listening to Roseanne Bar sing the […]

  72. John Morris says:

    One of the coolest, and nerdiest, photoshoots I’ve ever seen. Excelent job to both the models, and to the photographer too.

  73. Joe Jungers says:

    What a way to start my day. Hot girls, weapons, & campy fun.
    I loved the black & white presentation.
    And [as so many other] my two faves were the leaping attack image [practice – right…] & the after practice on the porch shot [hanging out & stuff].
    I’ll keep an eye out for your next set of HNG photos.

  74. heath harrison says:
