I became a Holmesian over the summer after reading the novels and it was the best move I've ever made.

So basically I had to cosplay Sherlock Holmes and I did some research on costumes before stumbling across this contemporary style of the detective... Which made me want to cosplay him a thousand times more as I just ADORE peacoats. I got my costume ready, forced EmosLastKiss into cosplaying John Watson and that's basically how this costume came about.
Coat was bloody difficult to make, though, and I didn't get it to flair out at the back of the coat like I had hoped. Plus, my hair was very temperamental so in future I'll be using a wig yep.


Love this! :D
