And now we get to the part of the con that made me squee and for which I spent hours preparing: Sherlock and John cosplay. For me, one of the most rewarding things when doing cosplay is finding a skilled and capable photographer who can capture the cosplay in a way that tells a story or reflects the personality of the characters I'm going for. And foxestacado is utterly brilliant at this sort of thing!
The above is just a teaser and one of my favorites, but click through here to foxestacado's post of Sherlock cosplay squee featuring qui_quae_quod as Kitty Reilly, dixiebell12 as the Speckled Blonde, chaeche as Sherlock Holmes and pennswoods as Dr. John Watson.
The last photos is an example of some unexpected cosplay that came about after I removed my wig and wig cap. In the morning, I had put my hair up into messy pincurls before securing the wig cap to make sure that I could wear the shorter haired wigs throughout the day. However, my hair was still damp when I did this so when I finally removed the wig and pins, I had this tremendous bushy frizz. And then because there just happened to be a deer-stalker, scarf, glasses and skull lying around...
I'm totally making an icon out of this for when I post my Fangirl updates!
