We are the Benedict Cumberbatch Appreciation Society - or BCAS (which is pronounced Beecass, not B-C-A-S). This is a highly esteemed organistion with two founding members - BB and HAN. We are not the average fangirl stalkers mind.... oh no. We do have other things in our lives apart from stalking a certain someone, but it should be recognised that Mr Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch deserves some recognition for his AWESOMENESS and general gobsmacking acting. We can't promise that we will blog all the time, but hopefully keep up with the latest Cumberbatch gossip as well as our reviews and ramblings. If you feel you are a worthy Cumberbatch supporter, feel free to subscribe, comment and input into the newly founded shrine for this amazing actor. Cheers.

A Bit More Sherlock Art... and the Best Present I Have Ever Received

Hello one and all,
I hope you all enjoyed the crockery post. BB and I had the most enjoyable time decorating those ceramics - and they came out surprisingly well! Our good old friend SH (no, not Sherlock Holmes) who is also a fellow BenMaBeb fan gave me a VERY late birthday present (late, bearing in mind my birthday is September - it is so late, it is almost early for my next birthday). However in this case, I will forgive her, as it is probably the most gorgeous present that I have ever been given. So, ladies and gentlemen I proudly present...
Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock - a drawing by our official blog artist - SH.

SH - I love it. I know you think I am being all sentimental and mushy, but seriously, you have been moved up my favourite people list because of this. A big, awkward, unwanted hug coming your way soon. 

BB and I promise that we will be back with proper posts soon, but there is no peace...or rest for the wicked.


IOU - Moriarty to Sherlock

Sherlockian Crockery

Hello readers,

I thought I'd take this blog post to show off your BCAS bloggers' creative side, as you mainly get to experience our literary ramblings, rather than our artistic *cough* expertise *cough*. Now, this isn't something we do everyday, in fact, this isn't something I've ever attempted before, but HAN and I got painting a few weeks back. And as you can see, this wasn't any ordinary painting: this was Sherlockian Crockery painting. 

I must confess, it was HAN who came prepared with the Holmes silhouette and quote bank, which I guess makes up for her temporarily losing her Benedict Cumberbatch shirt.

And these awesomosoarus pictures were the day's creations. The plate belongs to HAN, who went for the sleek, stylish and sophisticated black and white look, combining some of the programme's best quotes, as well as the snazzy BCAS initials. I went for the mug, because you can never have too many, and decided to "Union Flag" (it's only Jack when it's flying at sea) the silhouette, and go for the "falling's just like flying" quote, with BCAS written on the handle. There was a little bit of a major doubt in my mind as to how mine was going to appear, as the blue paint was purple before the mug was glazed, and I didn't have 100% confidence in it coming out blue. Thankfully, it did.

So, that's it for this BCAS update. Thanks for reading, and as always, please feel completely free to input into the blog by commenting, subscribing and telling your friends about us. And if any of you feel compelled to make your own Sherlockian Crockery, let us know - we'd love to see them!

BB :)
