Re: SocksBatch!

Ah, so there is the first pair of socks! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


If we all send them socks seperately, it might me a bit easier logistically... everyone could include her own little message and stuff. And maybe we could agree on something identical in each message, so it's clear that there are... lots of crazy members of the... SocksBatchCollective. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png


Something like this (and this is just... a crazy example to illustrate what I mean http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png
):


The SocksBatchCollective strikes again!

Dear Benedict,

individual message

individual message

individual message

individual message

Lots of love,
SolarSystem
(Member of the SocksBatchCollective)



Can somebody please shoot me...? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/lol.png

Re: SocksBatch!

Re: SocksBatch!

I think sending from your indiividual part of the world is, as Solar said, a logistically better idea. Plus we'll get a variety of socks! So he'll get a Batch of Socks. Maybe we can make a unifying logo or something to include as the letterhead or something. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: SocksBatch!

A logo would be great - and I will include a handwritten message. But still, who could do logo? http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


Or maybe: CumberSocksCollective? Which one is better?

Re: SocksBatch!

If we're taking this seriously, and I want to.  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
, do any of our experts out there know the best place to send them too?  We would need an actual address I reckon.  Can't just post them to "Benedict Cumberbatch, where ever he may be."  *giggle*

The socks are just such a lovely expression of his quirkiness.  You see him all slicked back and suited up and then your eyes travel down to his feet and...................SOCKS!  Like the glittery shoes and the skull tie it shows that he's much more than what you see on the outside.

Re: SocksBatch!

Looks like this is the place: (source: Cumberbatchweb)

I’d like to send some fanmail to Benedict Cumberbatch. How do I contact him?
You can contact Benedict by writing to:Benedict Cumberbatch, c/o Conway Van Gelder Grant, 3rd Floor, 8-12 Broadwick Street, London, W1F 8HW, England

Yes, Polar, that's the address I'd send it to.

The CumberSocksCollective is definitely easier on the tongue. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cute.png

Re: SocksBatch!

I like the latter! 

Also, I do also think we should all send them ourselves, it would have a much bigger 'impact' if it was packets from all over the world!

Re: SocksBatch!

Okay, so for a little preliminary result:

1. Our official name is: CumberSocksCollective http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

2. We send him our socks individually
3. We all include an individual message which also carries the name CumberSocksCollective - maybe really as a footnote that says "Member of the CumberSocksCollective" ?
4. If someone is able to design a logo, we also include the logo
