Halloween morning

Did I mention I was going to be Sherlock Holmes this year? Did I mention my family thinks I'm nuts because I'm the "wrong gender" to dress up as the Great Detective? Did I mention they can bite me?

I will say that this polyester coat and deerstalker are making me decidedly warm. And the handle of the magnifying glass I bought on Ebay ($5, what a waste) broke just as we were heading out the door. Thankfully, I was able to borrow my dad's. I forgot my watch, but then Sherlock didn't wear one, so that's okay.

I've got references to a few Holmes stories going, though only a true fan would be able to spot them: a red shirt (A Study In Scarlet), a necklace with a blue glass gem (The Blue Carbuncle), and a stuffed dog on a leash (Toby from The Sign Of Four).

Your family needs to meet my friend Michelle, who dresses up as male characters and plays males all the time in RP.

Nope. Such is costuming.
