We are honored to have Teri White, mydogwatson as our first official fan-fiction/writer guest! Teri has been a Sherlock fan for over 60 years, she is also a huge Johnlock fan, who’s published books in the past! Favorite stories include her Postcard collections, her Ficlets from 2017 & 2018, and my personal favorite Palimpsest! Teri will also be hosting the Fan-Fiction Panel, with others, and possibly a Shipper’s Panel!
This will be a fun way of sharing our thoughts each week!

I know a lot of fans were excited yesterday, and it’s mainly because of the possibility of having certain guests. We do plan to have more than one on-screen actor, but with this being our first event, we would like to keep it more limited. We’re not an official convention like Sherlocked, which centers a great deal on the guests. We’re Sherlock fans holding a convention.
What that means is more fan appreciation! We would like to see lots of art, cosplay, and hear your fan-fiction stories! Things we have planned, which will be posted throughout the year, include: scavenger hunts, episodes airing, ribbon trading, a karaoke party, a formal dinner, charity auction, art contest, games set up, on-screen items displayed for photos, a costume contest, a YouTube contest, lots of music, fan interaction is very important, and lots of shopping!
That’s not to say, we’re not going to try for a bigger actor if there’s enough interest. It’s just to say we’re planning this as a fan convention.
We’ll see how much fan interest we gather on Andrew Scott, and if there’s not enough, I do have a few adult actors to fall back on, and one is very interested in the event! I’m also waiting to hear back from a few actors and agents.
A PayPal link will be added soon, hotel block will be posted in about a month. More questions? Feel free to contact us!
One thing to remember is… This convention is still over a year away. We have lots of time to plan this out. We promise to put our heart and soul into this convention and make it an event you’ll never forget!
Our first contributed piece for our charity auction was given by Travis Washburn, the art shown above. It’s a beautiful poster-sized print, that will be auctioned off for charity! He also gave us some smaller prints, which I’ll hand out to those fans in costume, while supplies last!
Not only do we plan to have an Art Contest, but we’ll also have a Charity Auction as well! For those that would like to participate, please email us at email@example.com
Vendors are a huge part of what makes a convention as we start to promote this event! Sharing off a personal favorite, I hope to inspire you, artists/vendors! I’m also put a collection of art together myself, that I plan to sell during the event!
I once read that Martin Freeman’s a fan of music. I don’t know how deep his collection goes, but I think he might be impressed with this piece! Unless it was a really great artist, then he might be discouraged but the destruction of a great LP! Purchased this custom time piece at a Supernatural convention recently!
Preregistered fans will join us for a fun night of Karaoke as we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Sherlock! Songs we plan to include: I Want to Break Free by Queen, Stayin Alive by the Bee Gees, and December 1963 by The Four Seasons. Hobbit songs including Far Over the Misty Mountains Cold. Marvel-verse songs: Shoot to Thrill (Ironman), Shining Star (Doctor Strange), and the Immigrant song (Thor).
More songs to be selected! Our karaoke DJ is Megan Schihl, a long-time Sherlock fan! Note we are taking it Beyond Baker Street, with some of these songs! -Rose AKA Blogger
Rosemary is very professional and has organized events and conventions for the past 8 years. She’s also a huge fan of Sherlock the BBC series and stays in close contact with Hartswood Films. She’s a cosplay, an artist and she loves fan-fiction! Hanging out with her fellow fans is one of her favorite things to do! You may see her dressed up as Mycroft, Mrs. Hudson, the Abominable Bride, or even Sherlock Holmes himself! Rosemary also loves charity, especially helping children and animals, so she often works a charitable project into her events.
Harriet Ward is Rosemary’s mom, who’s been supportive of Rosemary! And she also owns the complete series of Sherlock. She thinks he’s an odd detective… I think John would agree at times!
Tony and I have been together 19 years, and have ran our own convention Retro Con since 2012! He’s also gives me strong support and encouragement in every project, including this event!
I couldn’t have done any of this, without the assist of my Sherlock BBC Sisters!
Construction continues on this site, more details to be posted soon! Hope to see you in November of 2020!!!
