SherlockeDCC2015_banner

San Diego Comic Con is the biggest party of the year, so what better place is there to have the biggest Sherlock Holmes bash of the year?

SherlockeDCC is BACK (IN TIME)! Once again we’ve got the entire 9th floor of the stunning San Diego Public Library to ourselves, complete with two balconies overlooking PETCO Park and downtown San Diego.

Join The Baker Street Babes, Being Geek Chic, The Nerdy Girlie, SherlockDC, and more for a night of sleuthing, drinks, food, games, prizes, and Victorian swag.

Mingle with your fellow Sherlockians in the main room and gush over 221B in all its incarnations. Grab a themed drink at our bar, eat your heart out, and try and outsmart Moriarty. Spin our prize wheel for goodies, grab some merch from our new merch area, and try on a top hat or two.

TICKETS ARE ON SALE HERE. And at the banner below.

There’s a lot more to reveal in the coming weeks, so keep updated by following #SherlockeDCC on twitter and tumblr!

We’re stepping up the game after last year and it’s going to be a night to remember (or not remember depending on how many Blue Carbuncles you drink…)

We will be having vendors this year!! If you would like to sell at SherlockeDCC, please fill out the vendor application HERE. First come first serve and tables are $50.

You don’t need a SDCC badge to come either! And under 21s are allowed.

All ticket holders will get a swag bag with some truly awesome gear, including an official SherlockeDCC badge and more.

So what are you waiting for? The party, my friends, is ON!

Please note that after June 1st we will be unable to honor refunds because we will be paying for the venue and catering. However, we are happy to assist you selling your ticket on to those on the wait list.

Pastiche vs Fanfiction: The Debate That Wouldn’t Die

A few years ago, I wrote a piece laying out my viewpoint that pastiche is anything Sherlock Holmes-themed that is faithful to Doyle’s characters. Since then, my opinion has evolved and changed. I’m going to re-articulate it. Just today, I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere published this piece, which does a great job of explaining the viewpoint… Read More »
