Mr. Clever by salemgryffindor Mr. Clever by salemgryffindor
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.

We should play a game of chess together if we meet up at Gally. You can be Mr Clever, and I'll be The Doctor. :D

A few days ago, I found a glass chess set in my room and I was wearing my purple frock coat... so I was like "Why not?!". I ended up playing a game of chess with my self, it was hard. We (I) always ended up in a stalemate. I think I'm too well matched for myself. What do you think?

No Imagine if Matt Smith was there and he saw us playing chess and decided to play the winner xD We would be fighting so hard but we're too well matched.

I met Peter Davison at a local convention last year. I thought I'd be so relaxed, and had a question already picked out to ask him during the Q&A session.... I was so nervous... even when I had a picture with him I was like "uh....hehehe Hi..." 5 is in my top 5 favourite Doctors, being number 3 or 4. Imagine what meeting Matt Smith, and playing a game of chess with him would do to me... he's my second favourite Doctor (SORRY MATT! TEN WINS THIS ONE!), but Mr Clever is by far my favourite villain. I'd either deliberately let him win, try to win so hard so I can say I beat the Doctor AND Mr. Clever at chess, or just faint. O.O Or all three... don't question it... I'll find a way to do it.... not on purpose though.

Not many folks look to Mr. Clever for inspiration which makes this not only well done but inspired and unique as well. I think it was a brilliant character who could have easily segwayed into a much awaited crossover between the Doctor and Starfleet - Had Rose not already asked Nine for 'more Spock'. "I am Doctor of Borg".

Oh thank you so much. I love Neil Gaiman, love Matt, 11 was my fav, loved the idea of the cyberplanner, and the age old game of chess against Death - so it all seemed to mesh together well into a cosplay. I haven't seen another Mr. Clever cosplayer in person yet. 

I think it's a great character to bring back someday... I hope... I hope..

omg! this means the world to me! thank you so much! I love this character. My first cosplay, so I was really nervous.

I LOVE my cybermites! omg, they are so much fun! I literally sit there and make dozens of them before a con or DW party and toss them at people I want to make part of the Cyberiad. It has become this expected game of Cyber tag wherever I go and I love it.  its so much fun.  I need to start tagging them! One guy from this con, Arisia, says to me on a DW group like weeks after " You know, the morning after the con, i got out of bed ( at the hotel) and stepped on one of your cybermites" I SWEAR I was never in this guy's room!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I don't know how it got there.
