Mad Scientist Monday #17: Bow ties are downright sexy....Albuquerque Comic Con 2012

Day 243:     Because we seem to have so many Doctor Who fans here in the Albuquerque area our Mad Scientist of the week is The Master AKA Harold Saxon.  Here come the drums, Vote Saxon!  Just a regular damaged and demented Time Lord, giving better lives to disembodied heads from the future. 

The Comic Con here in Albuquerque has come and gone.  We only went the one day but next year I have to go a little all 3 days because I missed seeing some of the coolest costumes.  I wish I had taken more pictures too but I couldn't stop myself from gawking at everything long enough to remember to take a picture, such a child.  Not too many disturbing costumes, lots of nipples, leather and spandex.  I don't know whats more disturbing kids getting immune to violence in video games or in your face disproportionate nipples and ass-eh well fanboys sway the market, what can you say.

Here is a link to check out some more pics :
or just google images for it or check out their facebook page.

But I got to see Jake Busey, rub shoulders at the chocolate booth with Commander Data, check out some actors from The Walking Dead show, apparently totally nice guy Carey Tagawa and Claudia Christian.  No I didn't pay for autographs but it was neat to walk by their tables and see them at least.  Not a sexy stormtrooper in sight that day and I was seriously bumming.  I was almost in tears that I didn't get to see Sam or Kristen from True Blood but maybe next year fingers crossed, hot werewolf maybe? I might swoon.

My daughter and her friend got a sketch by Gene Ha.  He is an amazing comic book artist and just a really nice person.

This girl's Hello Kitty paraphernalia booth was adorably addicting and my youngest daughter was  on pink overload. 

See a mop, a fez and a bow tie..instant Doctor.

Captain America snuggie, just plain weird

Can't remember who she was supposed to be but her hair was a great shade of green.

Mad Alice (Alice Madness Returns game), Altair (Assassin's Creed game) and  she made the costume AND she had a hidden fake dagger that popped out of the thing on her hand AWESOME, Harley Quinn from Batman cartoon fame

These kids were the cutest things...Aang, Sokka and Kitara from the cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender and the little girl's name was even Kitara

This is my oldest daughter in the jacket, shorts and tie I made.  She was Ciel from the Black Butler anime and manga.

Link of Zelda games.  He even had a jar that lit up and did the little noise like the character in the game makes when he gets something AWESOME.

Dude from the Death Note manga and anime, I think his name was Mr. White.

Another character, Sebastian, from the Black Butler anime and manga....it was cool of her to take a pic with my daughter.

No its not Shaft all you old people...its Nik Fury from The Avengers which was filmed here in New Mexico and is gonna be a freaking awesome movie. I love the word awesome it was so appropriate to the event.

Harley Quinn from the Batman Arkham Asylum game...and yes she made her costume!

I think these were characters from Castlevania....with my daughter and her friend who was a Vocaloid.

Rocking out with a skinny Elvis suit at the Hard Rock Hotel 

Another view of the jacket and  Ciel outfit.

Personally, I think she totally rocked this jacket and she was recognized at the Con so that means it was a good job!

Hello Kitty ring yummies.  She went back a few times it just just too irresistible.

I was bummed I didn't see or take pictures of more costumes.  But I have been able to see some from other people's Facebook pages and websites.  It is so cool to see all the creativity.  Now we are all addicted to Cons so you can be sure to see more pictures of costumes and travels in the near future.  Its like Halloween only not just once a year!
