Sam Baxter has to look carefully at titles because of a homemade TV-head helmet while searching for Sandman comics Saturday during the annual Santa Fe Comic Con, a three-day event celebrating anime, movies, gaming, comic books and cosplay at Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder. 

Los Alamos National Laboratory network security employee Nathan Williams roamed the Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder on Saturday dressed as a personification of a Vocaloid — a singing voice synthesizer software product.

On most weekends, he might have caused alarm. On Saturday, he was among hundreds of people, many in costume, who converged for day two of Santa Fe Comic Con, a celebration of anime, movies, gaming, comic books and cosplay that concludes Sunday.

“Everyone’s talking. Everyone’s out and about. There’s some great cosplays,” he said about the event, which returned after a COVID-19 cancellation last year.
