This was done as part of a CSI/NCIS group. I decided to do Horatio as the representive of CSI:Miami as it was my favourite.
I had most of the outfit already so I thought the rest would be pretty straight forward to put together.
I made the ID badge using photoshop. I then built a leather holder for it. I had built the gun holster already for my Abel Nightroad costume.
The main work was done above the neck. I cut and styled a shoulder length wig. My second ever full cut and styling of a wig. I then created extra on my eyebrows to thicken them out. I added some hair to create manly sideburns XD. I was meant to do full aging FX make-up to change my appearance but the latex had set. So I did full shadow and line make-up instead. I wore blue contacts.
I made the binder from sratch but made it slightly too big. Will be adjusting it for the next wear.
The sheild badge is a real bodguard one that my brother kindly loaned me. I'll be getting a costume one for next time.
It was a comfortable costume to wear and had the advantage of pockets. The only thing I hated wearing was the wig as I had so much hair to get under it. He did get photographed alot. Even by people who hated the character. lol!
