Sexy 'Sherlock' Halloween Costume Would Have Benedict Cumberbatch & Martin Freeman Rolling Their Eyes — PHOTO

You know what really revs my engines? Sexy literary characters of the Late Victorian Era. Oh yeah baby, take me to your late Gregorian palace of love. You really light my gas lamp...Right. Anyway. I would imagine the "Sexy Sherlock Holmes Detective" costume is a popular choice this Halloween due to the massive fandom of the BBC series  Sherlock . However, you won't find Benedict Cumberbatch or Martin Freeman sporting cleavage or wearing skin-tight frocks any time soon (dang!).

Now, sexy Halloween costumes have become almost a parody of themselves at this point. Take the Sexy Olaf from Frozen, for example. We're no longer in a world of Sexy Nurses and Sexy Construction Workers (insert awful drill pun here) —Nay, we are now in a world of sexy pizzas and sexy (read: cringe-inducing) children's movie characters. However, "Sexy Sherlock" really takes the cake with it's oh-so tacky description,

I would pay an absurd about of money to have the writers of BBC's Sherlock write a Sherlocktian deduction of that very description. I imagine it would sound a little something like this:

I don't know about you, but I think a  Sherlock costume more akin to Benedict Cumberbatch's look will be much more fun to wear this Halloween, my dear Watson.
