Costume Information

Dr John Watson - BBC's Sherlock.

Bringing the sexy back into sweater vests since Chandler Bing.

Totally blaming my Brother Constable and Lisu for this XD XD. Just kidding.

Currently not 100% decided when this will be done. Need to do test on the wig I want to use before being completely sure. I have pretty much have everything bar the jacket which I'll make. Be quite cool to do a character who is actually close to my height and age for once XD.


Was hoping to wear this for May London Expo but had to pull out. Most likely will run this at Manchester Expo (as long as it isn't too hot XD).

Not sure yet. I'll be with a couple of friends who are also doing Sherlock costumes and they have yet to decide.

Yay! for more Sherlock cosplayers ^_^

Unfortunately, I've just had to pull out of Expo :'(.

Most likely moving him to Manchester Expo (if the weather isn't too hot).

Thank you ever so much Shannon. I hope to be wearing this on the Sat. It is really weather dependent at this point. Will keep a look out for you :)

Sadly, I've had to delay this again due to work commitments. Hope to have it done soon.

Patterning the jacket (Posted 19th May 2014)

I drafted up the jacket pattern using a combo of several pattens. Unlike the actual jacket I'll be lining mine as I'm not fond of wearing jackets without lining. I'll certainly not be short on pockets XD XD.
