Costume Information

General
Cost : lost track
Time Taken : 6 months

Description
This costume is chell from portal. Quite an ironic game character the costume can be divided into three sections.

Orange jump suit
As of 4/4/11 it is complete but needs a proper "aperture" name badge instead of the hobo biro version it currently has!

Heel springs
As of 4/4/11 these are 90% complete! I want to improve by reprinting and a bit of sanding. I also wanr to put an led into the sides of this - therefore making more accurate to game! Also work on how they are fixed to leg and actually practice wearing them :-P

Portal gun
As of 4/4/11 this is probably only 60% complete. Need to redo circuits as short circuited all blue leds but will make it light up both. Need to make back casing longer so can actually fit hand inside. This will also b helped by tidying up the inner circuits. News to work on front prong and make less flimsy - this plastic was just too thin here. Need to remake front handle as not central and one side is too high :-S guess that means only bit I'm happy with is the main barrel lol!

Hoping to remake a lot of this in time for may expo! Also figure out how actually get my hair to stay!! But yes watch this space :-)

Moving to complete because even though my portal gun isn't I was able to buy a replica one so technically this makes it complete.
