So, needing an excuse to wear my Victorian corset, I dressed in a Sherlock Holmesian style for school today.  Shift, corset, linen dress with ruffles at the bottom, and a button overdress, coupled with my trench coat.

And my students accused me of *not* having dressed up for Halloween!

"But I'm Irene Adler," I protested.

None of my classes thought I dressed up at first.  The other teachers, knowing I'd strapped in for the day, thought this was hilarious.

On the other hand, the other parents around the block at Trick or Treat all figured I was Victorian at least, and recognized the name when I said who I was.

This does say something about your normal dress style, you have to admit.

Heh. I have a friend who uses Irene Adler as an internet handle, so she's my strongest association with the name and it always takes me a minute to recognize the reference out of context. (I also know someone who uses Rydra Wong and so have the same problem with Babel-17 references.)
