Full body shot of my Mr. Clever cosplay. Close up of the cyberplanner in my gallery as well.
Taken at Arisia 2014
Mr Clever cosplay. I painted the bow tie pattern to match the one in the episode. Made the cybermite, ( purposely varied it slightly from the episode as Idk, I hate copying someone else's art 100% - the original artist is Brooke Dibble. She is amazing and I highly suggest checking her out) hand pulsar and the cyberplanner, which does actually light up. My first cosplay but so far I am having a lot of fun with it. Now if I only had better photoshop skills and could put myself in there with a chessboard! I'm hoping to someday get good photos in general....
The cyberplanner was VERY hard to make because I'm allergic to all of the things that people I knew who did prosthetics told me to make it out of. I'm allergic to latex, silicon, most clays etc. So after numerous tries, and many cyberplaner shaped rashes later, I found a mixture of things that don't make me want to rip my skin off. Putting the lights in was the hardest, but it works! The other hardest part was the hand pulsar! Which also lights up and gives a little Zap. It was hard because I couldn't find any good reference pics other than screen caps.
UPDATE: added the bag he uses to hold the chess pieces, which is great because now I can carry my crap with me. And making the chess set. ( not sure why… but who cares! I want it!)
For those of you who don't watch Doctor Who :
Mr. Clever was a character ( my personal fav character ever) in the Doctor Who episode Nightmare in Silver, written by the uber talented Neil Gaiman. The original cyberplanner was featured in "Classic" Doctor Who, but when Neil wrote the upgrade as it were, it took over the 11th Doctor and battled it our for control of his brain.
Side note: I kinda play cyber tag with my cybermites now. lol I make about 20-30 of them , depending on the size of the con/party, and I name them all Sheldon, and i scream BAZINGA and toss them at the people I want to "upgrade". My personal cybermite is named Squishy, cause you know, he shall be my Squishy.
Why, yes, I have lost my Whovian mind, thank you….
UPDATE: made the chess board to carry with me.
