THANKS to ALL for Halloween House Help!!! [personal entry]

 koda has finally decided upon a Halloween costume; the child who bears a startling resemblance to the young RSL wants to be House!!!  Now, he already has the authentic, flame-emblazoned cane, he can limp on his right leg like a pro (mommy was his role model--hee), we got the stuff for fake facial stubble, and spray to gray his hair.  he's going to wear jeans, his orange and gray nike sneakers, and my "everybody lies" t-shirt.  what i need help with is this:  i know that--somewhere on the net--there exists a mock-up of house's hospital ID badge--and i NEED that graphic, desperately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ETA:   Thanks, everyone!  Once again, you've demonstrated why the House fandom is simply the best.  Hugs to you all; you've made my kid verrrrrry happy--which, of course, makes me ecstatic!

I don't know, but I suggest you post your query at the House of Whining, possibly in the "real life" thread or in the Cafeteria under the "Distractions" thread where folks post House-related links. It's a heavily traveled board and the fans there seem to know everything.

and now, he wants to wear both badges--he's enamored of the handicap parking permission on this one [like we don't have one in RL...]

this is gonna be too cute. pictures on the morrow!!!!!

It's a promo shot greatly reduced in size. I think it's the one where he's snapping on the rubber glove. He looked so stern that I thought it would make a great mug shot for an I.D. card -- House would never smile for a photo.

I made one of these a couple of years ago for myself as an ice breaker when I went to a real-life meet-up with some House fans. It had my icon photo and user name on it! It prints out at a very nice size for an I.D. tag.

did i say thank you? thank you! you guys have proven yet again that the house fandom is the absolute greatest!!!!! :-)

You're welcome! I bet he'll be incredibly cute and I hope he has a great time.
31st-Oct-2007 02:01 am (UTC) - This one's a *lot* more convincing
at least to me: "Dr. House"?

On a badge for a house officer? No way. Full name, degree. I'd expect an employee number or something too, but this is close enough.

Where the hell was it last week when I *needed* it? :-)

Yessssss!!!!
Jumps around. Sure beats a scary Scream costume. Sure he doesn't want to be a cuddly alligator?

:D

I want pictures!
31st-Oct-2007 04:08 pm (UTC)
ohhh, and there will be pictures. i just finished the badges; the pictures of those are below. oh--you meant pictures of the actual kid, didn't you? yeah, i suppose i could be persuaded to get a couple of those as well..... ;-)

Looks like you've got the badge pretty well covered. Really looking forward to seeing how it all comes out. Sounds like it'll be a great costume. And I can't help but take joy in the fact that Ko's part of the fandom too. Dressing up as "da man" makes it so in my book. :)

You've officially made me absolutely wild about Halloween. I already decided I needed some candy, but now I'm anticipating the pictures. Hopefully you will oblige us with many. MANY.

Also, you'll be happy to know that there is NO WILSON BASHING in my journal this week. He behaved himself so I had no reason to do anything other than enjoy his presence. *sighs happily and thinks about his fluffy hair*
31st-Oct-2007 03:48 pm (UTC) - Got Badges Completed!!
i've finished creating the badges and dosimeter! the pics were--ironically enough--taken on one of what koda refers to as his 'wilson shirts,' complete with tie, of course. this kid has an obsession with ties, abundant dark hair, high cheekbones, full lips, and deep brown eyes to die for! yet he's going as house? go figure. pics of the actual kid, in costume, later. thanks again to all!!!

That's awesome!!! What a great costume!
My neighbor and I were House and Cuddy last year, it was fun...but that was before the flame-cane :)

I just saw all this today, I hope Koda had a wonderful, wonderful Halloween! I'm sure he made a terrific House, what with all the badges and things! Can't wait to see the pictures...
