Sherlock Holmes Hat

Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles - Who Was She?

Do you remember that haunting song by the Beatles, the one with the line "Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name, nobody came"?


A very sad song, and at the time it was rather out of keeping with the type of songs that we had come to expect from the 'fab four'.


Just to remind you, here are a couple of verses of that song.


"Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been

Lives in a dream

Waits at the window wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door

Who is it for?


All the lonely people, where do they all come from?

All the lonely people, where do they all belong?


Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name

Nobody came

Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave

No one was saved


So, who was Eleanor Rigby, and was she a real person or was she just a figment of the imagination, something like 'lovely Rita, meter maid'?


Well, I was playing some gigs recently in Liverpool, and although my evenings were busy, the rest of the day was free and so I decided to use my spare time to do some research into this and to try and find out if there really was an Eleanor Rigby.


I looked up a few points of reference in the local library, donned my Sherlock Holmes hat, and set off for a suburb of Liverpool known as Woolton.


In the Anglican church there you will find a typical English churchyard, surrounding the church, and you will find many tombstones, but one headstone in particular caught my attention.


Wait for it. The headstone is dedicated to an Eleanor Rigby.


Having located such an interesting gravestone I then began to ask myself if any of the Beatles lived anywhere nearby. And guess what? As a child John Lennon used to live in Menlove Avenue, which is very close to the church.


This made me think back to my childhood, and I remember as a young boy I and my friends would often play in our local churchyard, playing hide and seek and other games behind the headstones.


Therefore it is not unreasonable to assume that John Lennon also probably often went into this churchyard, and would have seen the headstone dedicated to Eleanor Rigby.


Now unfortunately I only had a couple of days in Liverpool so I was not able to dig any deeper into this, but I intend to return soon and continue my research.


I want to spend some time going through the church records, and I would like to see what I can find out about the other people mentioned on Eleanor,s headstone.


If you would like to be kept posted on this, and kept up to date with my research, then please click on the following link. You will be taken to a page and near the bottom you will find my email address. Just send me a note saying keep me informed or something like that, and I will email you whenever I have found out some fresh information.

Hat "Trick" - Sherlock Holmes Deduction

Sherlock Holmes Hat Q&A


Tie dying. need some serious experts. all you hippies help me out?

ok, so basically i want to tie dye a suit. Sounds totally crazy right? but how awesome will it be? like a tuxedo thats been tie dyed. now dont steal my idea and go into mass production on me k? so is it going to have to be white to begin with? do you guys know any way to make a black or gray suit white? bleach will degrade the fabric and make it fall apart. And after that, is it going to have to be cotton? synthetic stuff doesent dye well i hear, but i could get special dyes?
this is going to be for my school formal. for the americans amoung you, formal is pretty much our version of a prom. We all dress up nice and dance and that. then obviously theres the crazy after party. With my tie dyed suit, im also going to be wearing a top hat, monocle and pretending to puff on a sherlock holmes pipe.

And yes, i am a stoner.

Kinda depends on what you want to accomplish... many suits won't stand wet cleaning/dyeing techniques, so you're going to have to be careful there. And yes, you'd probably be best off starting with a light colored suit.

One possibility that might not have occured to you is using a thin bodied fabric paint instead of dye.
e.g.: http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/eng/4483727-AA.shtml?lnav=paints.html

Choose dyes and color removers suitable for the fibers in the suit (paints are less picky!). Remember that a suit has a lot of inner structure in the coat that also has to survive whatever you're going to do -- and that the inner materials probably won't match the suit fabric and lining in terms of fiber content or care.

Deerhunter hat: where can I buy one in BC?

Hi does anyone know where I can buy a deerhunter hat in BC, Canada? Is there a specialized hat store? Or do I have to go to a hunting store? (haha as it WAS worn for hunting deer--not that I'm buying it for that purpose.) I'm looking for one similar to Sherlock Holmes'.
Thanks!

A costume shop is going to be your best bet. Any costume shop worth visiting is going to have a Sherlock Holmes Costume. It's also called a 'Deer Stalker' which might make it easier for you to find.

An interesting fact though, nowhere in any of the stories is Sherlock Holmes described as wearing the traditional "Sherlock Holmes" costume. The closest we get is in one of the stories he wears a hat with ear-flaps...once.
