I NEED THIS ON MY BLOG.
oh my god
When “A Scandal in Belgravia” aired, I think it’s safe to say that the thought of a riding crop conjured up images of the sex-charged reimagination of Irene Adler in the minds of the Sherlock fandom.
But lest we forget, Sherlock Holmes was no stranger around a crop himself. In fact, in the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories, it was described as his favorite weapon by John Watson. Having recently purchased my own riding crop, I wanted to pay homage to the classic stories with my modern BBC Sherlock costume.
WE INTERRUPT THIS HORSESPAM FOR AN AWESOME SHERLOCK COSPLAY
and it is SO awesome indeed
I love that look when Sherlock just realizes.
#It’s the nerves of steel bit that always gets me. #Because he says it #and there’s John looking completely innocent #in his jumper next to a police car #all tidy and non-assuming #And Sherlock can just look and know #’I just described John Watson. My new friend.’ #and there was no turning back at that point for either of them.
#it’s when Sherlock just thinks #My god. I’ve only known this man for a day and a half and he has just killed a man for me #And he’s so surprised because no one has cared about him that much or done such a thing like this #and it confuses him #he doesn’t understand
I was going to say something. But then I re-read the tags. And impersonated the gif.
In which Sherlock goes from friendly to angry in mere seconds
Doesn’t it look like he’s saying
“Yeah, we actually do MAKE OUT.”
“When I say run…”
In case it’s hard to tell, or if you just haven’t seen s2e1 of BBC’s Sherlock, that’s Benedict Cumberbatch under all that fabric! ;D Took a break from some bigger projects to do this… I just wanted to draw his rather intriguing eyes (or just one of them) so I thought this particular scene would be perfect to reference.
Anyone else wonder how he was able to take on so many armed men… with just a machete? XD
