So seattle con had a cosplay contest, I entered and won for most creative concept.
I was Irenecroft.
(Can I just send a huge thank you to everyone at sherlock con. Legitimately I entered because I realized that my outfit was confusing without the back story. So I entered as a way of sort of being like “hey I didn’t just fall into my closet. There is a reason for this.” And I got the idea because I happened to come into possession of a riding crop and (p)leather skirt a few days ago. But I already had my Mycroft stuff. So instead of making a decision I just smashed them together.)
And people thought it was good? And voted for me? Sherlockians validated my crazy arse idea?
Winners got to pick a prize and I got a Sherlock Holmes action figure. I really feel bad for the bloke who took me to the prize room. I was just so excited. Flailing and noises and indecisiveness. Then I took a picture.
