Lt Horatio Caine
CSI Miami

Cosplayer: Sephirayne

Variant: Main outfit

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

Might do quite well in a Drag King contest. XD

18th November 2010: Caruso approval :D :D :D Just remembered.

A while back when I posted the Horatio photo shoot by Silver on facebook I linked it to David Caruso's profile (I was a friend of his at the time). He really liked the photo/costume.

So made up with that.

I have since had to quickly screen grab the page as he's now had to delete his fb account due to some idiot fan messing about.

21st April 2010: Minamicon 16 Mainly did this for a photoshoot with Silver and boy! what a photoshoot.

It turned out to be so awesome and fun. The setting worked really well and we were blessed with great weather. Did a better make-up job than I did at Cylon Attack.

Although by the evening I was all punned out!! XD XD

1st December 2009: Costume completed. Just come back from the con and had an absolute blast being Horatio. It was one of my most comfy costumes ever (except the wig) and it had POCKETS!!!! woot!.

The only downsides where that we lost a memeber of the group so there were only three of us in the end. Still made for fab pics.

Also, my liquid latex had set. Even though it was fine when I check it a few days before the event it had somehow set (quite possibly that its had gotten too cold in the car). So I couldn't do the full FX aging make-up I was going to do. I had to go back to basics and do some aging make-up with lines and shadfow work. Next time I wear him i'll do the full FX make-up.

Horatio and the group went down well. I even got pics taken by people who hated the character lol!

26th November 2009: Wig complete!!! (and what a task it was too) Went into town again since my option to get one delievered turned out to be a bit of a nightmare due to a bit of confusion with me bank.

Managaed to find a wig that was a great colour match and was a skin top so I could style the parting how I choose. The major downsie is that it was too my shoulders. None of the wig places in Manchester had anything shorter. Due to the length and quality and that it had a skin top it ended up being more than I budgeted for. At least as its a high quality wig it should make styling okay.

So as you can imagine I have every intention of wearing this costume more than once.

After procastinating for a while (didn't want to harm pretty wig). I managed to finally cut it and styke it. Took over an hour to do. I had forgotten how much hard work it takes to layer hair. I used my default styling spray TresEmme Extra Hold Salon finish (that I used on Abel).

I just hope that I don't look like a dork when its finally on me.

7th November 2009: Wig shopping = chaos!! Attempted to get a wig today. I went to my usual shopping street in Manchester (Oldham Road, where there is everything a cosplayer needs). Went into the wig places that where there. Now this is where I got my Raphael/Tidus wig from with no problems. But today was a complete disaster.

Trying to explain red/ginger hair to them was torture. It dosen't help that pretty much all shop peeeps hardly spoke a words of english. Nearly all kept showing me blond ones. Then they kept tryng sell me ones that were waaayyyyy too long (I want a chin/shoulder one that I'll then be cutting/styling like I did with Raphael). Although great quality wigs. They were way beyond my budget at $45. After going into four shops I gave up.

I think next time I'll go in with a picture. *head desk*

14th October 2009: This is not the shirt you're looking for,,, Well, house move come and gone. No sign of my blue shirt so I'll have to change the outfit plan (My ex appears to of shirt-napped it).

Luckerly, my brother has a shirt that matches one of the black striped shirts he wears in Season 6.

9th September 2009: Delayed til Nov Due to an unplanned house move and a really complex costume build for Expo this has now been definatly put back til Starfury:Cylon Attack in November. I couldn't spare the fund to get the wig so unfortunatly he won't be done in time to join the NCIS group for Oct expo. Sorry Rach XX

28th June 2009: The Sheild badge The cop sheild and belt clip is cming soon. Its my brother's actual body guard one. A friend of mine has it and hopefully we'll have it soon for pics.

However, just had heart attack when my brother told me how much its actually worth. Its worth £150. Which means once its on me it stays on me the entire time I'm wearing the outfit. Its because it is an actual body guard badge and the belt clip is US police issue.

21st June 2009: I have sunglasses!!! Thanks to my brother we've found the perfect sunglasses. He uses a site for his Depp glasses and found some Horatio ones. We weren't sure how close they would be. But they were quite chepa so we thought we would get them anyway. They arrived and are fab!

I'm feeling all the one liners and cop posing go though me as I wear them. lol!

3rd June 2009: Beginning the epic Cop of justice outfit While I do more complex costumes (Safer Sephiroth) I did start Horatio in between bits drying. I've started his ID badge. Using a rather old Paint Shop Pro (can't afford photo bucket and PSP is just as good) I've got the layout done. Now just tyding it up ready for printing and then putting into the badge holder.

This seems too easy in comparison to my other cosplays (Seph and Abel). Of course, this is before I do all the make-up and hair.

ahaa, Horatio (..the sunshades of justice..) Caine! :P

wow this will be interesting to see. I didn't know you did fx makeup as well as stunts.

Sephirayne avatar

Sephirayne - 24th April 2009
'Sunnies of Justice', I love it. As you can imagine I'm going to have waaayyyy too much fun doing the impressions.

Rykredapples, Yes, I've seen the Jim Carry impression. Its is excellent. The rest of CSI Miami doing 'H' impressions is also great (really funny when one of them pokes themselfs in the eye with the shades).

Ranma, Yes, I have FX make-up training. It was the first thing I did in the film industry before moving on to stunts as I perfered being infront of the camera. I know how to use explosive micro dots and all sorts of neat stuff. I do know how to do full latex aging make-up. As Horatio is between 10-14 years older than me I'll only be doing the basic stuff.

hakuloveszabuza - 26th April 2009
I can't wait to see this as you are just going to be sooo cool.
I am going to look for stuff for my character as soon as I get back from May Expo ^^
As you do FX make-up I would be grateful for any tips and help with doing the make up for my other half who will be a body...any gory ideas we can have for cause of death would be fun. Plus I need to find someone that can paint a tattoo on my neck for Abby ^^

Sephirayne - 1st June 2009
Omg, Dominoed, I would love to have a Calleigh for the cosplay group. Shes one of my fav characters.

Mattdark, your welcome to film. Just give me a heads up as I'm good at having clutz moments in cosplay (yet I'm a very deft person normally).

I'm hoping it is a really really bright day when you wear this, with a very blue sky, as it NEVER rains in Miami!

Sephirayne avatar

Sephirayne - 1st June 2009
Lol! Knowing my luck when I do wear this It will pee it down with rain.

I'm hoping to put it together in Summer so that I can get a good photo shoot done even though its most likely not being worn until Oct.

well this is a damn interesting cosplay... don't think i've seen anyone do this yet.
looks like all you'll need to finish it off is some good aging makeup, lol

hakuloveszabuza avatar

hakuloveszabuza - 30th November 2009
I can't wait to see this cosplay ^^
Just let me know if you bring it to Expo in May as I can always bring Abby for maybe an evening cross over photoshoot ^^.
I am considering if money allows attenting the London Film and TV event (name slipped my mind lol) next year too so I will probably bust out Abby for that too with a few changes like new boots and jewellary ^^

Sephirayne avatar

Sephirayne - 1st December 2009
Thanks everyone.

I got to wear the completed costume this weekend and had an absolute blast in it. Pics coming soon.

Callmemilo, the costume dose include plans to do full latex aging make-up. Not to any major extremes but enough to make a difference.

Hakuloveszabuza, Not sure if he'll go to May expo. The costumes I have planned for may expo are huge so I might not have room for him in my luggage. Yes, I'll defo be at London Film and Comic con. I'm happy to wear Horatio then as a friend of mine has agreed to join me as Grissom from CSI.

Captain_Marvelous avatar

Captain_Marvelous - 2nd December 2009
He could have used a double ended lightsaber in csi its so rough on him XD I love cosplays that people do when you can see they are completely for their own satisfaction. this actually turned out probably better than any of the male horatios *though ive seen very few* well done ^.- looks like you found your man :)

Ranma1-2 avatar

Ranma1-2 - 3rd December 2009
Well done Sephy. You have him nailed. Esp love those mannerisms. I wasn't expecting to see Horatio finished for a good few months..
...and Aaaarrgghhh you have a double ended fair :I

I might try out a Callie see if I can look pretty enough.. :)

Sephirayne avatar

Sephirayne - 3rd December 2009
@ Ryukredapples, Thankies. Lol! I'm sure a lightsaber would be great in any situation. I've defo found my man *sunglasses on* :D

@Ranma 1-2, Thank you. Yes, I was able to go to the event last minute so had to complete Horatio quite qucikly. I had great fun trying to do all the mannerisms. Especially for the photos. There were loads taken.

The lightsaber isn't mine its a friend's, lol! I have Qui-Gon Jinn's and Darth Vader's.

If you do Callie that would be so awesome. She's one of my fav 'CSI Mimai' characters. I'm looking to reprise Horatio at possibly LFCC next year. A friend wants to join in as Grissom from CSI.
