It's Sputnik 2, the first spacecraft to carry a living creature around Earth's orbit. Harold is Laika, the small mutt who took that fated voyage. Unlike Laika, little Harold will make it home safe and sound tonight. :) It was featured on Boing Boing! Our dear friend Heather (she also made my wedding dress, remember?) rigged it up. She's a creative genius.
Laika, space dog.
My costume isn't ready yet, so you'll have to wait and see. But here are some cute ghost cookies I made. Earl Grey cookies with royal icing.
Kurt says they look like happy sperms. I'm okay with that.
