consched

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.

Anime Expo | Los Angeles, CA | July 3-6

Dash Con | Shaumburg, IL | July 11-13

Lyndsay and Liz will be at the first annual Dash Con, a convention for all things tumblr. Our guest page is [HERE]. We will be having an hour of Sherlockian games and then a live podcast on Friday, the 11th from 4-6PM in the Shaumburg West room. More details about Dash Con can be found on their [WEBSITE].

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.

Femme Friday: Mary Morstan

Mary Morstan by BSB Lyndsay Faye Let’s chat about Mary Morstan for a sec.  No, not that one, the one you’re thinking of we’ll get to in a wee bit.  I’m talking first about the one who kicked so much canonical ass that she deserved her own spinoff series.  (Does this exist?  Tell me, please, if it happens to… Read More »

Femme Friday: Violet Smith

Violet Smith By BSB Melinda I’ll get to Violet in a minute, but first: let’s talk about women on bicycles. As an avid cyclist myself, I think that focusing on Miss Smith’s chosen form of transportation is a good way to reveal a bit more about the workings of her character. People usually don’t give… Read More »

Femme Friday: Molly Hooper

Molly Hooper By BSB Amy Long, straight hair, lipstick that comes and goes, and an ironically macabre career—exploring unassuming but totally awesome Molly Hooper is a journey that starts with specific stories framed by the creators of the BBC’s Sherlock, finds its anchor in the Sherlock Holmes canon as a whole, and winds up the wider genre of… Read More »

Episode 56: A Slight Trick of the Mind with Mitch Cullin

[LISTEN] | [DOWNLOAD] (Save Link As) —————————————— We sit down with Mitch Cullin, author of A Slight Trick of the Mind, which tells the story of a 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes’ battle with his diminishing mind.

Femme Friday: Irene Adler

Irene Adler By BSB Lyndsay Irene Adler means many things to many people.  For some, she is the first truly legendary antagonist faced by Sherlock Holmes.  (Because really…do you spend much time ruminating over errant Mormons?  Does Jonathan Small get your panties in a twist?) For others, she is a plucky ringlet-haired sass machine who is allowed to tweak… Read More »

GoPop and Our Commentary Reviewed!

Sora, who you may know as our graphic designer, has taken the time to review the GoPop app featuring our commentary on Sherlock Series 1. She wasn’t involved in the making of the tracks or anything, so this was a fully new experience for her. If you’re been unsure of whether to grab the app,… Read More »

Femme Friday: Lady Mary Brackenstall

Lady Mary Brackenstall By BSB Ashley Welcome back to Femme Friday, and let us introduce you to one of the most stalwart women in the entire canon: Lady Mary Brackenstall. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was not always a man of progressive ideals: he was anti-suffragist and pro-imperialist, a British gentleman of traditional sensibilities in many ways…. Read More »
