Portal Cosplay by Loverofpiggies Portal Cosplay by Loverofpiggies
This was my Chell Portal 2 cosplay for A-kon 22, 2011 this year. I was a bit hesitant to post this on my DA, but I figured why not. It got a ton of attention, and I literally couldn't stand around and chat with people, I was getting so many pictures. I've never had anything like that, it was a crazy experience!

This picture was taken with a GlaDos I found RIGHT before changing out of my costume. She was totally incredible, but the shoes were killing me far too much. I wish I knew who she was, so I could properly credit her!

The Portal gun I made myself, and it all lights up. I got the idea from Volpin Props, however his tutorial didn't go step into step the way I wanted. I photographed every step, I've been tempted to upload my own tut.

Better show of what the shoes look like right here - [link]

Anyway, hope you all enjoy it!

haha thank you! It took forever to get to light up. I'm actually surprised I found a way to make it work!

I think I've seen more pictures of that GLaDOS on DA... *goes to check*

Yeah, that looks like her: [link]

Looks to be ~Hissora I think, if I got the name right. :D

Also, all the really nice Portal cosplay out there makes me want to try one, but I've no con to hit with one. Also, it's going to be interesting, let's just phrase it that way, trying to make my version of GLaDOS work as a cosplay. >_>

Please read the Authors comment, I am Chell, not GlaDos.

The gun I only had a month to make, so I suppose it only took a month. But that was constant use of my days to build it in time! It was crazy!

No problem. Even though it get's annoying having to listen to him talk about it when we're out of the house, I somehow learn to deal with it. :)

Yeah I was thinking a lot of people would like to see it. Its mainly Volpin's tutorial, except very simplified with a few changes for those of us who are not savy with this sort of building.

The shoes were actually made out of Gogo Boots and lots of electrical tape. Along with a good amount of ducktape for the springs. Sadly this image doesn't show the shoes, I got a ton of compliments on them.

Loverofpiggies Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011
(Actually shoes are right here [link] )

And the gun, MAN OH MAN. So much stuff, just... insane amounts of work. I photographed it all, so soon if I have time I may post up a tutorial.
