literarydragon asked: So, since we always seem to be looking for excuses to have a card exchange, since Doyle's 155th birthday is coming up at the end of next month, perhaps that is a cause for card celebrations??

OoooOOOooooh! We could send each other Very Merrry Unbirthday cards! >;D And yes, yes we ARE always looking for excuses to have card exchanges because card exchanges are AWESOME! :D

What say you all? Want to do another card exchange, this time with a birthday/unbirthday theme?

VICIOUS AND VULGAR
Performed at Broadway Performance Hall, October 12th, 2013

In V&V, playwrights Scott and Luhrs re-imagine the author Arthur Conan Doyle and wonder aloud: what would he think of all of the fan fiction, cosplaying, and conventions happening in today’s world? A grumpy and abrasive re-animation, Doyle manifests Holmes and Watson in modern, female forms in attempts to prove to his audience that they have wasted their time. This play explores characters, themes, and relationships in Doyle’s classics― all with a contemporary twist (with the help of Granada Holmes and a certain mouse detective, of course).

Creators Alison and Sammy will be doing a livechat tomorrow (4/5/14) at 1PM EST to answer questions about this piece. Send questions to theshescott, itriedthatonceitwasabadmove, or tag your questions #vicious and vulgar

Lookie look! Here it is! Sherlock Seattle’s presentation of Vicious and Vulgar! Principal videography courtesy of Robert Kangas. :D

Although we cannot make it to 221B Con this weekend, Sammy and I have a very special present for the fandom to premiere on Friday.

In honor of 221B Con, we are ready to announce the online premiere of Vicious and Vulgar this Friday the 4th!

Vicious and Vulgar was a crowdfunded, full-length play that premiered at Sherlock Seattle. Our research material was provided by academic extraordinaire professorfangirl, and dialogue was lifted straight from crowdsourced questions on Tumblr. We made a rough recording of the performance, and are beyond excited to launch it this Friday in tandem with one of the largest gatherings of Sherlock fans in the world. Watch at the con, watch at home, we just want to celebrate this weekend with our love letter to the fandom. A smoother edit will be available soon, but we want you all to see it now!

Stay tuned for link address. The video will go live this Friday at 5 EST, and there will be an AMA on tumblr with the playwrights/actresses (theshescott and itriedthatonceitwasabadmove) at 1PM EST on Saturday!

WHOOOOOOO! Here it is, finally, a piece of Sherlock Seattle 2013 for you all to check out! The “finally” is tragically more due to complications on our side of the equation rather than on the creators of Vicious and Vulgar. We apologize to you all for the delay in getting to enjoy this awesomeness. :)

biblioaesthetica replied to your post “im not sure if the conan doyle estate would raise a stink since there are published works of sherlock holmes gay porn from the 70s - i think the famous one is the sexual adventures of sherlock holmes - where badically all the male characters have sex and mrs hudson is young and sits on sherlocks knee (this is what ive heard)”

Leslie Klinger is where you want to search. He’s annotated the new annotated S.H., he’s the biggest collector or Sherlockian porn (at least self admitted in public), a lawyer, and involved in the recent legal challenge vs. the Conan Doyle Estate

Have I mentioned today how much I love my Tumblr friends?

And he was a Guest of Honor at Sherlock Seattle 2013! I wish I had know about the porn stuff before the con - we would have totally done a panel on that with him! >:D

Share your experience with us!! #eccc meetup

I was at the Sherlock Fandom Meet Up this afternoon!

There were about a dozen of us there, including an accurate BBC Sherlock, a BBC John with an fantastic sweater, an adorable TARDIS, an equally adorable Molly Hooper, a neat No Face, an awesome Harley Quinn who found a work on the starship Enterprise, and an amazing 221B cosplayer in a fantastic dress that matched the well-known wallpaper in a certain Baker Street flat.

I had a great hour chatting with everyone! We talked about the latest season of Sherlock, everyone’s awesome costumes, ECCC panels, and the annual Sherlock Seattle event that will happen later this year. I don’t know if I can make it to tomorrow’s fan meet up at 11am at Area B, but I’m betting it will be fun like the one I attended today!

Also! If you are an Sound of the Baskervilles member and are attending Emerald City Comic Con this weekend, don’t miss out on visiting SOB Dawn, who has her booth right next to the lobby entrance on the main floor and is selling her work, including Sherlock Holmes pins, at Table C-03. Visit her table and say hi! I wish her a very fun and fruitful weekend!

So jealous! I can’t wait to hear everybody’s stories! :D

How to find me at ECCC:

distinguished-gentlewoman:

I will be a minion at this year’s Emerald City Comic Con! Where will you find me? I don’t know. I don’t have a set destination because I’m a floater minion. You could make it into a “Where’s Melia?” game. Scavenger hunt that shit.

So, how can you find me, MeliaWallace AKA distinguished-gentlewoman AKA hannadler AKA sherlock-lolita?

Here’s my face:

It’ll be awesome if someone recognizes me and says, “Hey!” I always love meeting Tumblr peeps! Happy hunting!

Isn’t she just the cutest?! *squeee!* Melia put together the Sherlock Seattle vid show last year! Go say “hi” Sherlockians! :D

bellakaleidoscope asked: Hello! Is there anyone else going to the ECCC(Emerald City Comicon)? I would love to chat about Sherlock. p.s. if anyone has a haversack coat, fake gun or deerstalker that I could borrow,I would be over the moon! (Any other John accessories would be amazing) I want to cosplay as John or Kitty Riley, I know it is last minute, please message me!

Well, I know that lyrangalia will be there as will distinguished-gentlewoman and I’m sure there will be many more Sherlockians there that I don’t know are going. Alas I cannot go, but reblog Sherlockians, reblog like the wind so you can hook up at ECCC! :D

theyardsleastirritatingofficer asked: Is there any further word on con dates? We're getting anxious to start planning and budgeting. XD

Alas, we are waiting to find out when SHERLOCKED is happening because we don’t want to conflict with them, but they have yet to announce their dates. GRRRRRR! This is very frustrating to us. Hopefully they will announce their dates soon. However, if they continue to drag the process out, we may go ahead and just pick a date and hope for the best.

Steamcon recently announced that they are no longer going to be running their convention, which means that the weekend of October 3-5 is once again a viable date for us. It was the most popular date with attendees who filled out a poll last year, so there’s a good chance it will be that weekend if SHERLOCKED doesn’t conflict.

We promise to announce a date just as soon as humanly possible! Thank you for your patience and understanding. We just want everyone to be able to go to all of the conventions they want to and to not have to choose between them if at all possible. :)
