Sherlock BBC

I know there's a few of you out there! Who else is cosplaying from Sherlock, the BBC TV series? I saw that there was movie threads, but we need a BBC thread.

I'm currently planning a Sherlock, with a friend as Molly and hopefully another friend as my John.

Right now, I'm actually stuck on his coat. I'm even struggling to find a non-accurate, just normal black/gray trench coat! Anyone have suggestions?

Coat!Irene always make me giggle. I can't wait to see your Irenes! I think I've found a coat, but who knows. I wish I had money to buy the official one... the $2000 dollar official one. @_@

YAY! FINALLY A BBC SHERLOCK THREAD!

I'm hoping to make a fem!Sherlock group at some point, and I'll probably be fem!Mycroft. Mark Gatiss is the awesome.

It does, and I'm half tempted to buy it. At the same time, I think it fits the model/mannequin really bulky around the shoulders, and I'm afraid to spend that much money on something that fits awkwardly. You never know with the made-to-order stuff.

Welcome to the thread, Magifox!

EDIT: I found a coat! It's the most charming black and grey wool tweed. I'm going to have to add/replace 6 buttons and buttonholes (and make them red) and vent the back so it's more flow-y but it works! One day I plan on making the coat out of a black and grey houndstooth suiting, but alas, that will be summer project.

If you haven't seen it yet, someone replicated (and I mean REPLICATED) the coat on Deviantart!

Yay Sherlock!!!

OMG that coat pattern is awesome! I've been looking for a Sherlock coat since S1 came out, it's a shame they don't make many classy coats like that.

I just found an awesome shiny purple shirt for Sherlock. Well, it's a woman's dress shirt but it should work if nothing else suitable is found. And perfect for Fem!Sherlock in the meantime.

Working on John Watson, so far I have the wig, shirt, and jacket. Still waiting to get his sweater. The Sherlock replicated coat that was posted looks FANTASTIC.

I was one lucky dog to find both a coat that could work for Sherlock and John's cable knit oatmeal sweater at a thrift store~ I just have to convince my friend into being John.

Anyone have any ideas for wigs for Sherlock and/or John?

-finally looks up McQueen dress of Irene- SHE'S SO PRETTY in that dress! That outfit is amazing. I can't wait to see you guys' Irenes!

Aww, Sherlock makes dreamy eyes at David Tennant! <3

I was at a con watching one of the masquerade MCs put on her costume (shirt and slacks, curly black wig), and I couldn't recognize her at all until she put on the Coat. That'll sell it every time. The blue/lavender scarf is a nice touch too.

My friends are planning a BBC Sherlock cosplay. They are having problems with Sherlock's coat as well. So one of my friends decided to do his pajamas (blue robe, grey shirt, pajama pants), and now she's having problems finding correct lightly striped PJ pants. Oh the difficulties of cosplay xD

I am working on a John Watson cosplay right now~ My wig is a little blonder then being accurate, but i may use it anyway~ I just got a buttoned up shirt and a sweater for it today.

My DREAM is to convince my boyfriend to dress up as Sherlock (because my boyfriend had the most perfect hair for it and i think he would make a awesome Sherlock) And i could dress up as Watson, and we can go to comic con "Handcuffed" :'D
I really would love to do that~
