19th April 2012: Someone Stop Meeee I keep buying props D:
So far I've bought his little sliding magnifying glass and his Moleskine notebook.
Seriously considering buying a cheap violin too, but I know I shouldn't because 1. I don't play anymore and can't remember how to, and 2. I shouldn't be spending my loan on cosplay in the first place...
I might buy the deerstalker, though...
14th April 2012: Wig Arrived I find it ridiculous how perfect it it. I've been sat here giggling like a tit since I put it on. I'll get some better shots of it with contacts and make uo some time next week.
I've also got a bit more of the coat done. Still a long way to go but it should be finished for Expo.
31st March 2012: Wig Yeah, so, I bought a wig >__>
I realised that it would be easier more practical in the long run, as I'll have to change costumes on the Friday and Sunday of Expo, and won't have time to curl my own hair.
It's a nice wig though, pretty much identical to Sherlock's hair.
It may need a trim, but I'll see what it's like when it arrives~
2nd March 2012: I'm so bad at updating... So since the last journal, I have bought the suit which is perrrfect, a watch with a black leather strap with a round, white face and the shoes which I have to pick up from the post office tomorrow.
I haven't got any further with the coat, as Uni has piled on work which is my priority atm. But I did buy the buttons, which need painting and I'm hoping I can get the canvas sewn in over the weekend.
9th January 2012: Whoops, it's been 4 months. I've actually started buying things for this. The shirt and contact lenses have arrived, and I have a suit on the way. The coat fabric should be here tomorrow, and I'll have some time at the end of next week to start putting that together.
I'm using my own hair for this too, so I bought some curlers and as long as I remember to get a hair cut before I go to Expo, it'll work out pretty well.
All I need now is a John Watson...
16th September 2011: Haiiiirr Because the coat portion of this costume is going to cost a ridiculous amount, I've come to the thrilling executive descision to try and use my own hair for this.
It will obviously need dying and curling, but I've just had it cut short like a retard.
I'm dearly hoping that it will grow out pretty sharpish, because I really cannot afford a wig at this point :/
6th September 2011: Things Despite not really needing to get this together anytime soon, I've already found most of what I need.
I found the purple shirt and suit on eBay for pretty cheap, and the scarf, shoes and gloves should be easily found in shops.
The coat I maaaaay have a stab at making myself if I can find some nice, affordable wool coating, and I'll probably use my own hair if I can curl it. If not, I'll need to find a wig. And I'll need to buy grey contact lenses. CURSE YOU BROWN EYES D<
