Oh fantastic! I'm so glad there is a thread for this!

I plan on debuting my Sherlock at A-Kon this year, with a large group, but I'm still not terribly pleased with my wig. I bought one and styled the curl into it completely myself, and the bangs on the front are still just a bit too full. I'm about to leave for work, but if I were to post photos of it this evening, could I get a little input?

The rest of the costume is done; the coat was a coat I had in my closet. I ripped it apart, literally at the seams, and retailored it entirely to resemble his. It's not Irish Tweed, but it will do. The scarf was knitted by my John by hand, and I opted for the purple shirt worn in Baskerville. Here's a few photos of that; forgive my corgi's cameo in the last one!





Pardon the poor lighting, and, lol, dirty laundry.
