In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name.
To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman.
New Years Day was totally overshadowed by NEW SHERLOCK OHMYGOD for us, and I instantly fell in love with the fabulousness of Irene Adler (played by the beautiful Lara Pulver!!). Even though I'm more of a Molly Hooper
, I was taken in by Irene's glamorous outfits, and decided to try my hand at making her Alexander McQueen ‘Illusion’ Bolero Sheath Dress
The dress took a few days to make, as I had to add some adjustments and draft the bolero piece. It's made from ivory satin crepe (I looked at cashmere wool crepe and £36 per meter was a little out of my price range hahahaaa...), and the shoes/bling/phone are all borrowed from friends and family who were awesome enough to help me out
Hair-styling is by ~Xigalicious
, using the intense power of a billion hair pins, a straightening iron, and this amazing tutorial
It was loads of fun getting pictures at the lavish Hilton Hotel, dancing at the Kitacon Ball with my Sherlock, and being able to feel very very
glamorous for the evening
