As soon as the actual action started, what immediately struck me was that every woman onscreen had her shit absolutely together, and every man (with the exception of Corporal Hicks, Bishop and Apone) was a complete walking clusterfuck.
Moreover, as in this .gifed scene, the narrative itself made it explicit that the only way the men were going to survive was by emulating the women.
And even though I was still just a dipshit kid when I first saw this, I didn’t pull on an MRA fedora and whine about my gender being portrayed in such an unflattering light, because even then, I immediately recognized, “This is what it’s like for women to watch literally every other sci-fi action film.

Our challenge for August is to imagine Sherlock characters in alternative fashion styles to their usual canon attire! The change in fashion could be for a case, a time jump to the characters future or past or an AU. The focus of the art piece should be the clothes characters are wearing.
Entries can feature one character or a number of different characters and you can choose any character or characters in Sherlock (any version, BBC, RDJ, etc) for the challenge.
Below are some examples of alternative fashions you could use:
Characters in fancy dress (Sherlock dressed as Lolita)
Characters in different decades (John dressed like he’s in the 70’s / Mycroft dressed like he’s in the 20’s)
Two characters swapping clothes
Two adaptations of the same character swapping clothes (i.e. BBC Sherlock and Granada Holmes)
Sherlock dragging another character on a case, both of them in disguise
A scene from a characters past (military service John / exotic dancer Mrs Hudson) or future (retired beekeeper Sherlock <3 / Chief Superintendant Sally)
