Molly Hooper Cosplay Refs And Help
This was requested a while ago, sorry it took so long!
Costume: In the first episode she wears what appears to be a dark green, checked/tarten shirt with a ruffled front. Over the top she wears her white lab coat which she wears in almost every episode and a pair of black pants. I was unable to find a ref for the shirt, but any should be fine. Her hair is in a ponytail and parted in the middle.
In the Blind Banker she wears a Zara Green Striped Tuxedo Ruffle Blouse which is no longer available to buy and I can’t find it on ebay. In green and white stripped top should be fine. Over the top of it is a navy blue cardigan with a low, rounded collar. Her hair is parted to the side and I think in a bun? Messy bun. Very nice.
In The Great Game we first see her famous cherry cardigan. It’s a Dolly Dare Cherry Print Cardigan and no longer available. Most people I’ve seen make one either embroider or applique the cherries on an existing white/cream cardigan and add a ruffle. It has red buttons.
Search ebay under dolly dare or topshop.
Again her hair is to the side and she wears a simple necklace, thing gold chain with a little stone.
Also try costume stores.
Costume 1: We mainly see her at Christmas in two different outfits. The first is obviously her christmas dress. Glittery shoulder straps on a tight, fitted black dress. Pencil skirt style? The top is covered in either diamantes or something similiar. She wears a matching braclet, large silver earrings and red heels. Her hair is out and curled/wavy and theres a adhesive silver bow in her hair.
While I can’t identify the dress, you can make it yourself or find a strappy black dress and use that instead. You can add the diamantes or rhinestones or whatever they are. You can often buy them in packs, strings or rolls. Bridal stores/wedding decor sometimes sell them. Craft stores probably do too. Fabric stores too.
While I can’t place her earrings, the round silver top is most likely to have a studded back. If you can make jewellery, you may be able to find the right findings online or at craft stores. If not, keep looking anywhere that sells jewellery. Good luck!
Any red heels should be fine, hers has a strap across the foot. And the ribbon in her hair can be found anywhere that sells wrapping paper. As for the bracelet, I advise doing the same thing as the earrings.
Finish it off with red lipstick and fingernails.
Costume 2: Simply a red christmas jumper with polar bears under her labcoat. With her hair still down but no longer fancy. I can’t place her jumper but found several similiar ones that might work.
Costume 3: The outfit she wears in the Reichenbach Fall. Again she wears the Dolly Dare Cherry Cardigan over an Urban Outfitters Pins & Needles Apple Print Blouse. Her pants are Topshop Paper Bag Trousers in Stone. All of these are not available. But you should be able to find similiar things. Over all of these she wears a khaki coat. Later she switches it for her labcoat.
Costume: Molly wears aSonia by Sonia Rykiel Plaid Printed Blouse under a Topshop Knitted Crazy Bobble Jumper. The first is said to be available but the link says none to be found. The second is sold out. If you can knit though, thats an option! When they go out she wears a black and pink/magenta knitted scarf with matching gloves. The gloves shouldn’t be too hard to find, you can either knit the scarf or search for it.
She wears a navy and grey coat over these as well.
Costume 1: Theres a few in this episode. The first time we see Molly she’s in a lovely sleeveless yellow floral dress with a yellow ribbon in her hair and flowers. Sometimes she wears a pale yellow cardigan and a corsage of white flowers. Her hair is in a bun. The dress was a thrift store find, so may be a one of. But look for anything similiar or similiar fabric. Ribbon can be brought at fabric stores and craft stores. You want something wide.
Any should be fine.
Does look like it might be fabric though. Flowers can be fake or real. Fakes can be find out craft or fabric stores or online.
Costume 2 and 3: During the telegram conversation between Molly and Greg she wears a Ralph Lauren Blue Label Orange Slimfit Chelsea Striped Shirt which is no longer available. But I did find this one which is similiar. She wears her hair braided and wrapped around her head like a crown. Heres a tutorial.
The second/third outfit is worn during the Stag Night story. She wears a Sessun Chunky Knit Teal Cardigan over a pale white/green pattered blouse/shirt. You can buy the cardigan here. It’s 15% off until March 9th.
HLV +PROMO IMAGE
Costume: She wears a light blue blouse patterned with green and pale purple clovers/flowers. I can’t find or identify it. She wears her labcoat again lol.
In the promo image she wears a H&M Cardigan no longer available, over a Sessun Eugenie Bossa Nova Dress also no longer available.
Wigs: Ladies of Sherlock reccomended a Buttercup in Spanish Brown from Arda. Also try ebay. If you have the right colour hair but not length, perhaps a ponytail extension? Arda sells these too but so does ebay and a few other places. If a place sells wigs, they usually sell extensions too.
Make sure they are heat safe if you plan on straightening or curling them.
Other: ID Badge. Jinglebatch/bencumberbatch has a lovely little template for you here. Also check out their Molly cosplay. It’s amazing! Also according to that badge she is also a Doctor! Info on that here!
Hope this helps!
Benedict Cumberbatch dancing on set of Sherlock | 21st August 2013
(original video was mine, i took it down from youtube so there is no link)
That’s the Ministry for Silly Walks in action!
SHERLOLLY PICSPAM….Also, Louise and Benedict would be cute together as themselves!
I don’t think I’ll ever get over the fact that Martin has his hand on Louise’s breast in that top middle pic. Like, how did that happen? Did he just say, “Wowza, Loo. Nice boobs! Can I touch? Amanda lets me touch hers all the time, it’s totally fine.”
And then did Benedict cop a feel as well?! “Here, Ben feel this. It’s really nice.” And they both just stand there feeling her up.
I don’t understand why in Sherlolly ffs Molly’s ALWAYS crying so much, about EVERYTHING. Sherlock said something insulting - crying. Sherlock says he loves her - crying. Sherlock says hello - crying.
omg, do you really think, that she’s so pathetic and weak person? She never once cried in series when he said something. I don’t see her crying over everything. She’s so strong, she’ll probably be more angry than sad about his behavior. She’s not that sensitive.
