If you're serious, and as this is the Halloween season upon us, look for Black Cherry Jello or similar dark Jello. You can use it as a temporary hair dye.
Just hope it doesn't rain. Or the bees don't find you . . .

Or, Halloween costume shops or theatrical supply shops usually stock black dyes for temporary hair color change.

Thanks RCJ!  I am serious about an indian character.  I even shaved my moustache this morning!  I have the clothing to pull off an "apache" (cotton tunic, high top mocs, cotton breeches, headband), at least from 10 feet away.  I'd have more work to do to look like I came from a plains tribe. 

There are some seasonal Halloween stores that pop up this time of year, plus the "Party City" stores.  I'll check there.

I tried a temporary dye this week.  It works, but it was MESSY! 

I think I can live with the color for a few weeks to a month, so I'll just use a "permanate" dye wihen the time comes.  Previously, my vanity has had me use "Just for Men" for my beard/moustache, and it works okay.  I may do it this week for an match this weekend, as I now have a complete outfit for an Apache...including custom made (by yours truly) apache pointed-toe boot moccasins.  Next comes the plains indian impression...

Troy, I think for an authentic Apache outfit, you don't need any color for the beard and mustache, what you need for that is some tweezers, just to be "period correct".

Still don't understand why two guys who seem "fairly" normal (you know who you are) would be so obsessed with dying their hair black to portray an Indian. Wouldn't an "old" Indian have gray hair? MAYBE they're trying to be young again! On another note, will the 2017 skirmish be cap and ball friendly? My thinking is that 51 navies and 1860 armies would be the most historically accurate for 1866, but having to hit multiple knockdown targets 3 times to kill them with a .36 would be a PITA for the shooter, and really boring(funny for a little while) for everyone else to watch! Pretty sure I'm going as a civilian(Scout), because the Henry would be an appropriate rifle, and a helluva lotta fun!

"Normal" is a setting on a washing machine!
I do fit the "obsessed" category though.  And, after a day of my hair pretty much all one color, I'm almost wishing that I would have dyed it all gray.  It will be back to "normal" in about a month.

I think that cap and ball revolvers would be fun and definitely period correct, too.  I'd like to use them in the event, as well.

Never had mine dyed or permed, never will.   I did get it cut just before the muster, should need it cut before the 2018 one again.

Driving me crazy, needs to grow out a little more so I can tie the back, new job don't allow hats or bandannas. 

Working in a Qwik-Shop in the poor part of town, and loving it, the people are fantastic, almost every color and creed, except few of the Yuppie folks, glad of that.   Been told many times I'm now part of the hood, they all know my name. 

Need to bring you guys something called Milwaukee's Best Ice or the one called Hurricane, must be good stuff, sell lots of it and it's only 99 cents for a 24 Oz can.

Milwaukee's Best Ice  there is reason it's  $.99 ...  it is malodorous ...read stinks .... if one can get by the putrid smell , it is like Schlitz
will leave you with a sick headache ...it is cheap drunk though. 

I haven't seen Hurricane Malt down here ...though I don't really pay that much attention.

 I have friend & ex coworker  , that got into Micro Brewing as a hobby ..now he is has changed his career ...and is a Lager & Ale Distributer for Shipyard and other malts.

I am rather vain, but I don't miind my gray hair at all.  Apparently, nobody is believing the objective is to get dark/black hair such as the native americans.  I think that I will now put down the shovel and quit digging.  The hole is pretty deep now... Roll Eyes

I say it's your body and you should be free to treat it however you want.

And you know, you could be an adopted tribe member kidnapped in youth . . .

Wise words, RCJ!  I like the adopted angle, would make for a good and believable back story.

Honestly, I'm not too happy with the dye.   Though the color looks natural, the fact that my hair is all one color doesn't look natural.  It will wear off in about 4 to 6 weeks, and right now, I'm not considering doing it again.  Guess I'll be a half-breed or adopted tribesman...and in reality, I am part breed.  My mother's mothers' father was said to be Seminole.  My research is indicating that he may have been Chickasaw.  Either way, he was part of the 5 civilized tribes.  I'll keep going with my research and hopefully, I'll have some more conclusive information in the future.

My apologies for hi-jacking the thread...

Hi Y'all

So, Grand Daddy Harv was bald, used the Norelco on everything above the collar bones every morning.  I have Pictures of Dad in WW2, his hair receded an inch in 42, 43, 44, and 45 ending in a comb over.  I have a full head or hair so far, and mine is just glad to be here.  In order to have a hair color, you have to have hair and gray is a hair color.  

The beard coloring products definitely colored my beard years ago, but the color didn't seem to be one that occurred in nature.

I put in for vacation for Muster back in at least August.

According to my admittedly very quick research, it doesn't seem that there were conversion cylinders available for C&B revolvers until 1868, the first one being a .46 rimfire for the 58 Remington. Spare loaded/uncapped cylinders for an 1858 Remmy would seem to be the quickest reload option for a revolver in use in 1866. Was there a standard issue sidearm in 1866 for a horse soldier, Dragoon? 1860 Army?

I believe the Army had, more or less, standardized on the 1860 Army and what we refer to as the 1858 Remington.  I believe there were still some '51 Navies still in service, as well, but the Army preferred the .44's.    I'm sure there were still some Dragoons floating around, as well.  Firearms technology was evolving rapidly at the time.

Don't expect a stage like water carrier ravine this year. You could probably use cap and balls without too much problem

Just a passing observation...
Hurricane, if it is the brew canned in "By God, Texas!", has 8% good stuff in it over the normal, or as some say, regular brewskies 3%. Hurricane also is the same or near-same recipe for what us oldsters from the 60's (read last century) called malt liquor, the small can with a Bull on it. Hurricane has a solid flavor and is enjoyed from the Gulf Coast up North through the Corn Belt here in Ioway. It has taken a while for it to become as popular as the old brands from the 60's but local consumers have been buying multiple cases to keep the economy going upward, so far so good! It takes a real positive attitude to consume a case a week but somebody has to do it, so there!
Congrats on your new job Del, I can just see the local grandmas stopping in to get a gallon of milk and leaving with a smile and 4 new recipes, HAH!
Best regards and don't drink and drive after a few Hurricanes or you'll be thinking off-road and hollering "Here, hold my beer and watch this!"
