BBC Sherlock Costume

Introduction: BBC Sherlock Costume

When I searched "Sherlock" into instructables, I was shocked to see nothing of relevance. I LOVE the show and decided that I will be Sherlock for Halloween. This is my first instructable so I am open to feedback. Enjoy!

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
A dark colored trench coat
Dark colored scarf
Collared shirt
Dark pants (no yoga pants)
Black leather laced shoes

Step 2: References

To get an idea of how to dress, I STRONGLY recommend looking at pictures.

Step 3: Collared Shirt

Any shirt will do so long as it's not pink.

Step 4: Scarf

A cashmere or knitted dark-colored scarf will do. It would be great if it were silk with fringes. To wear the scarf the way Sherlock does it, fold it in half around your neck and put the end in the loop.

Step 5: Pants

You can use dark-colored jeans for pants, although office pants (sorry, I don't know what you call them) work better.

Step 6: Shoes

Those nice, laced black leather shoes would work perfectly.

Step 7: Trench Coat

Get a long, black trench coat. I will use my mom's big, beige one because I can't find my grey one. If you can't buy one, work with what you have. A blazer is fine.

Step 8: Attitude

Even if you substituted a lot of the costume elements, you can still be him in character. Act like the anti-social, confident, observant Sherlock in the BBC show. That is how people will know who you are.

    I love this mini-series! I think it is the best modern incarnation of Sherlock Holmes.
