SHERLOCK: A Study in Pink by Shigeako SHERLOCK: A Study in Pink by Shigeako
Location: North Gower St, London. In front of SPEEDY'S and the "221B"

Private Sherlock Shooting #1 in late May 2012

Cosplay: me as Sherlock Holmes (BBC SHERLOCK)

Photo by =theDevil1412 <3

_______________________________________

Well, here is the first picture of my Sherlock cosplay. And you may think that it's finished, not a preview costume anymore. I wish you were right...
I had very bad luck with the coat fabric. Order of fabric 1 had been cancelled without reasons. The I ordered fabric 2 and only 1yd arrived at my place and fabric 3 came pretty late. Therefore, believe it or not, I had to hand-sew the whole coat the night before the shooting. That's why it still looks like a mob... Of course, I will make a new one soon >___> I'm my biggest hater xDD

Apart from THAT I really like the shot showing SPEEDY'S in the background and me with the iPhone in alarming pink ^^

Hope you like it <3

Oh, and I met Benedict in London :D Not in costume though xD
And yes, I talked to him and he talked back. Still haven't realised that yet....

There will be many more pictures soon, not all of them uploaded by me. My John Watson will upload many of them, too on this account ~Rayi-kun

Comments and fave sare appreciated as always.

Absolutely incredible cosplay! Where on earth did you get everything? o: I've been wanting to cosplay Sherlock for quite awhile now, but some of the things I have aren't nearly as good as yours. My coat seems too light in color, for instance.

I found some tweed fabric online and made the coat myself. it's far from perfect though ^^

Beautiful cosplay and picture, love it ;o;
I'm actually thinking of having a go at making my own Sherlock coat, and I was just wondering what kind of pattern you used? I'm a bit of a noob at sewing and this will be my first proper project cx any advice would be much appreciated, but that's ok if you can't ^-^
Once again, really stunning picture c:

actually i borrowed a friend's coat, which was custom made on ebay, and copied the pattern. but i realised it<#s not the perfect one. this is why my coat turned out too tight :/

hey! actually I made the coat myself (bought fabric online and so on). I only know that they sell replicas on ebay which are quite nice and not THAT expensive and they are custom made, too. maybe you can check those ^^

I like your gaze. It's so Sherlocked. I mean, you look so much like him and have captured his emotions really great. Very well done)

And, you are lucky:D My exboyfried met Ben and told me about that with such face, like"yeah, the day was rather boring, I went to a cafee, then went down the street, met a guy, called...How was it..Oh, yeah, Benedict Cumberbutch." Damn him.

But, still! You were at BAFTA!!

This picture still shows the old rubbish coat though xD it's kinda embarassing!
OMG lucky him!!! I met Ben, too, and he's really nice even if he was in a rather bad mood that day xDDD
I'd love to show him my cosplay but at the same time would be too embarassed xDDDDDD
Oh, yeah, Bafta... i actually held one *gnihihihi*

I'm kinda late with this but...
YOU MET BENEDICT!?!?!?!? Where? Ohmygosh. I'm going to London and I have dreamed of meeting him there... I thought it would be veeery unlikely to happen. But you met him. I'm sorry I'm totally crazy right now

This is an awesome cosplay and an awesome picture! :heart:
