We painted the 221b wallpaper for less than $20.

By using coupons to buy multiple canvas packs, fun foam, and paint at Michael’s, we were able to use nine 16x20 canvases and one cork board to give the impression of wallpaper and a case wall.

Since the case wall is on cork, we can change it as often as we like.

Total time took 6 hours with scienceofcumberbatch tracing almost all of the stencils, and pickanycard and thesugarquills (myself) doing most of the painting… We even painted through the earthquake.

John,

I want to grow old and keep bees out in the country with you. So this is my method of making sure that happens.

Love you.

Doctor Watson Embarrassingly Celebrates Engagement to Sherlock Holmes

In recent news, “Consulting Detective” Sherlock Holmes and Doctor John Watson, his assistant and friend, have gotten engaged. I, Kitty Riley, journalist extraordinaire, have kindly asked for engagement photos of the couple. However, Doctor Watson has ‘graciously’ declined my request. Though with a stiff drink and a promise, I was able to obtain a video from Harry Watson, Doctor Watson’s sister, who was only estatic to release the video to the public and seemed very happy for her brother and Sherlock.

Ladies and gentlemen of London and the greater surrounding metropolitain area, I give you “Moves like Johnny.”

Sherlock Cosplay Blog Masterlist

A million years ago, in April when I started this blog, I tried to make a directory of all the Sherlock cosplay blogs. I think there were about 5. Look how we’ve grown since then!

If you notice I’ve missed any active blogs (and I’m sure I’ve missed plenty,) please PM me and I’ll add them. I’m placing the list under a cut because I intend to keep it updated.

It will be the 27th Red Pants Monday.

So who wants to celebrate?

I’m not sure how, but… we should celebrate.
