Ah, it’s summer… which means it’s convention season! We’re never able to get to many as we’d like to, but here’s a run-down of our convention plans thus far… apparently ALL happening in July! Going to any of these? Make sure you come say hi! You can always reach us on twitter at @BakerStBabes.

Fighting Nazis in a Fedora: the Proud History of Sherlockian AUs from Rathbone to Tunalock
We plan to start off with fun and games, but the podcast itself will focus on Sherlockian AUs and the fact that they’ve existed pretty much forever. We will discuss how classic film AUs like the Basil Rathbone films are both similar to and different from modern AUs like Sherlock itself and all the ever-evolving ones we dream up on Tumblr. Our panel will be a celebration of the Holmesian AU and how it’s developed over the years.
San Diego Comic Con | San Diego, CA | July 23-27
Ah, it’s Comic Con again, and SherlockeDCC is returning! Curly and Liz will be attendance at the biggest convention of the year. SherlockeDCC, whihc is happening on Friday the 25th, is sold out, but you can find details [HERE]. Otherwise we’ll be roaming around the convention, tweet us at @BakerStBabes to meet up!
