My new Mini Clever and Cybermite

Most of you may know that I tend to send a mini version of myself along to some cons when I can’t be there.  This mostly happens at Gally, which usually means that whatever I send has to not only endure the general craziness of my friends, but also being packed up and shipped. So far, every Clever I have sent has technically survived, but he usually comes back in pretty rough shape. Now is this because of the USPS or my friends, well, I guess a little of both.  ( I will be posting the #CleverdoesGally2019 album soon, and you can decide!)

My friend Holly of Hollys Making Stuff crafts the cutest creatures of all sorts so I asked her to make me a wee Mr. Clever.  I was not disappointed when she sent me some WIP photos. Not expecting to see a teeny tiny cybermite on his lapel, but that got me thinking, and I asked if she would also make me a cybermite too.

I am really happy with how these came out. I can’t wait to take pictures of them all around the town and at every con we go to.

 

May have already taken them to the MFA.

 

Recreating some Mr. Clever fan art

One thing that I really enjoy and admire is cosplayers that recreate fan art in their photoshoots. So down the rabbit hole I went into searching for Mr. Clever fan art! There still isn’t a lot out there, but recently I stumbled across a few lovely pieces that I was able to incorporate into a recent shoot.  Most of the ones I found had various companions in the piece- mostly Clara, obviously.  My wonderful friend Kelly agreed to fill in for Clara in those instances, and those pictures will be posted soon!

For now, here is one example of a solo shot that I was able to do.

 

This was based off of this fantastic drawing that I found here on Deviant Art.

 

 

This was something new for me and I really enjoyed doing it and look forward to doing more!

SqueeCon 2018

Super thrilled to be a part of Squeecon’s inaugural event this Saturday.  I am really looking forward to being a panelist as well one of their many talented cosplay guests.

There will be tons of things to see and do including film screenings, local artists & vendors, locally sourced food and snacks, performances and a fabulous mixer with nerd karaoke at the bar.

If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, then go do so! Looks like it is going to be a lot of fun and also a great way to support diversity in art, film and all things fandom.

Did I also mention there is a cat cafe down the street?
