Hello :) First of all, thank you so much for this question. The concept of “cute eyeballs” gave us a bit of a giggle! And please, we’d highly recommend not using real eyeballs! They don’t work as well after being dunked in tea (biscuits are much better).
So first of all let’s take a look at the eye, just for reference:
Yeah, there it is, and it’s pretty realistic. The iris is light and it looks pretty freshly removed.
Here’s a photo from Arwel Wyn Jones’ Twitter (here) of the eye (and its partner) before its dunk.
As you can see they’re fantastic. But how can we recreate this amazing attention to detail at home? For those craft lovers out there you’ll be pleased to know that YouTube offers some fantastic tutorials for making your own realistic eyeballs at home (just like Sherlock did with his napkin folding!) Here are some of the best tutorial videos we’ve found:
For those of you who aren’t up for making your own eye prop there are hundreds of websites which sell ready-made eyes and depending on how realistic you want yours to be they can be very affordable. (Our thrifty followers may appreciate these Halloween prop eyes available on eBay.) If you’d like something more realistic have a search on Google to find some sites that sell eyes in your region. Here’s a few for starters:
If you’re thinking of hosting a Sherlock themed party in future you might want to include an eyeball cocktail! The eyeball garnish is easy to create using lychees. Here's a tutorial from Martha Stewart. There are loads of recipe variations for cocktail eyeballs (always using Lychees as a base) so have a search and see which one sounds most appetising to you!
Have fun with your eyeballs and if you do end up making your own please send us a picture!
Hello! We don’t have a post on John’s chair no, but there’s a good reason for that, it’s because it’s one of a kind.
The chair, described as a “classic armchair” has been reupholstered in a modern fabric by Sherlock’s prop team. Also, according to Arwel Wyn Jones, John’s chair is broken:
"It is however quite an uncomfortable chair and is broken in certain parts and we were going to fix it for this series (Series Three) because everyone told me that it was really uncomfortable, other than Martin himself who doesn’t mind it at all so I left it well alone". - Arwel Wyn Jones [X]
Unfortunately not, it was made especially for the show. The bottle, made from resin, was molded by Sherlock’s prop team.
If you’re looking for something similar the perfume Ghost has a similar moon shaped bottle.
If you have an idea of how you think Claire-de-la-Lune would smell we’d recommend commissioning one of the many amazing perfumers on Etsy. There’s already lots of Sherlock inspired perfumes available on the site so it’s only a matter or time before Claire-de-la-Lune is brought to life!
You’re trying to make it! That’s great, we’d love to see some photos once you’re finished :)
We’ve made a page here for you with lots of photos of Mary’s dress from all angles (and some close ups) which should hopefully make it a bit easier. Good luck, have fun with your project!
