Cats' Corners: the little HOUSE in the woods....
Where House is NEVER safe...
HALLOWEEN HOUSE PIX! [personal entry] 
2nd-Nov-2007 09:26 am
As you might remember, the night before Halloween I was in a panic, in need of a graphic for House's PPTH ID badge for Koda's costume.  You guys came through for me; hithaheven sent a scan of House's dosimeter!  I'm so grateful for all the enthusiastic assistance, and I'm sorry for the delay in posting the pics; I'd intended to get them up yesterday--but I spent yesterday morning at the dentist, and the remainder of the day wishing I was sleeping, and--when I was lucky--actually sleeping.

Koda's costume was the hit of the party, and then later, at Walgreen's, we wound up being there an extra hour because everyone there wanted to admire him--and baby!House ate it up!!!  Several people told us it was the best Halloween costume they'd ever seen!  Unfortunately, the pictures don't even begin to do him justice, as--for some reason--they show his hair and stubble as much darker than it was; the grays and silvers and paler browns weren't picked up at all.  You'll have to take my word for it that it in fact looked very much like House's in color (if not in length; oh well).

Koda told me afterwards that it was the best Halloween--and the best family birthday--he'd ever had.  So again, my thanks to all for your assistance in making this happen!!  

As usual--click to enlarge:

The makeup is fantastic! Makes him look older and the stubble is amazing!

Love the little flame cane! Did he have the limp down too?

Koda's expressions are perfect!

You guys rock!

Question: What did you use in his hair? I've been trying to find something to use on my doll's hair to grey up the sides a bit.

of course he has the limp down--he's been watching me limp on a cane, in that very same way [i, too, tend to stride, as i resent the hell outta the cane] for over five years! :) the flame cane is available here.

the silver/gray part of the hair--baby powder first, then over that, jerome russell's B-wild!!! hair and body glitter spray in silver, and then, to make it permanent until washing, schwarzkopf's got2b glued blasting freeze spray, all available at walgreen's in the 'hair care' aisle.

glad you liked!
