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.

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.

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.

Boots have arrived. (Posted 23rd September 2014)

Managed to find some boots that were a very good match in my local branch of the Soultrader Outlet. Sadly, none in my size. Thankfully, they had a mail order and I was able to order them through that. As it was an outlet I was about to make a saving of about £50 off the original price.

They came today and I'm really pleased with how they look. They also came a day early which I am really pleased about.

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.
