Dear WHI's,

Today I want to start a series. I love to see moodboards or aesthetics article about different movies or series, so I thought I would make them too. I hope you like it!

Sherlock Holmes

Characteristics

First of all, Sherlock is obviously very smart. He knows this himself too; he repeatedly dumbs other people down and says that he is the smartest person in the room.
Sherlock is particularly good in the art of deduction, forensic science and observing.

Physical appearance

There are different quotes in the books and in the series explaining the physical appearance of Sherlock. In the book he is explained as:

"He measured 6 feet, or over 6 feet, but he was so lean that he seemed even taller."
"He had a thin, eager face."

In the series Sherlock is played by Benedict Cumberbatch. He is 1,83 meters tall and has a narrow face as well.

Fashion

Sherlock is in the series most recognisable by the people who read the blog by his hat. He is obviously also very recognisable by his long dark coat.

"He had a tall, gaunt figure made even gaunter and taller by his long grey travelling-cloak and close-fitting cloth cap."

If you would like to dress as Sherlock I would suggest the following:

- dark (probably black) trousers
- a dark (blue or black) shirt or blouse
- sometimes a jacket (dark too)
- a scarf (also dark, mostly blue)
- black polished shoes
- and of course his famous black coat with a high collar (you guessed it, black again)

Thank you for reading my article! I hope you enjoyed it. Should I make more of these? I'm thinking about other characters of Sherlock, maybe the Gilmore girls, people from Harry Potter or the Riverdale cast. If you have any suggestions please let me know!

Loads of love,
Mieke
