One thing that bothers me though is the way Watson is holding his gun. I am by no means an expert, so please forgive me if I make a fool out of myself...
Seeing as how Watson has been in the military, he would have received training, and they would have thought him to always keep your finger away from the trigger, as long as you don't have the intention to shoot. Holding your finger on the trigger can result in unwanted shooting when someone bumps into you, or when you get startled.
When you holding the gun, you indeed use your left hand to provide support (if you're right-handed). But as guns get hot when fired, you keep your support hand on the bottom of the gun, in such a way that the fingers of the support hand are on the back of the firing hand. That way your hand gives maximum support, without any change to burn yourself. Believe me, holding the gun in the right way will increase the total reality of this picture, and looks more professional as well.
This is just my view on it, but I hope you found it helpful for any future shots.
Great shot! I can totally empathise with your need to get everything juuuust right. As you say, though, this is a really excellent start. I'm quite looking forward to seeing your improvements on a cosplay that's already so well done!
I know one way to improve would be the parting of the wig on Sherlock. If I remember, his parting was on the other side? I may be wrong but great work so far! I love both of the cosplays, they look almost the same thing as the real Martin and Benedict!
Omg it's so great!!!! *_____* And it actually looks pretty perfect!!!! XD Wow I feel so bad for my (first) cosplay last saturday XD (femlock) ...... I wish I was as awesome as you too!! The Bg is pretty perfect too And the looks on your faces... !! Amazing! <3
What? I think you make an awesome Sherlock! It's so wonderful! Well, it's best if you're happy, so I'd love to see it complete in your eyes anyway. After all, it means more awesome cosplay pics for us.
