Costume Information

Description
Wheatley is my spirit animal. Enough said. :P (I'm also a massive Smerch fangirl so...go figure. 8'D)

I designed the costume myself. Decided to make it a bit different from the other Wheatley's around...not sure how happy I am with the design in all honesty. xD

Whole costume wasn't too hard to make really, trousers are bitches as always. :P I actually enjoyed sewing all the black lines (EXCEPT THE ONES ON THE ARMS). I love love love my light up boots. :D The costume also lights up in the middle with blue LEDs although this can be hard to capture on camera in the light! 8'D I had lots of fun props for this including a flashlight which I managed to drop and break about 5 minutes in. Like I said. Spirit animal. |: I also love the wig (curly haired blonde Wheatley is perfect to me. xD) and the glasses which have no lenses on purpose (Wheatley thinks they make him look smart...)

I also made a Wheatley to carry around. This was actually the most time consuming aspect. He's made from a football, model magic, paper mache, craft foam and spray paint. I'm not sure if I'd recommend that way of making him, it was pretty time consuming and he's starting to crack a tad...but I still love him! <3

I'll be rewearing Wheatley at fushicon and Kitacon so be prepared to be sick of him!

Oh my goodness, this is going to be amazing! I should hopefully doing a Portal cosplay some time in the near future, but nothing as exciting as this - just Chell from the original Portal. Either way, I can't wait to see it, I wish you the best of luck!

Design (Posted 2nd September 2011)

Moving this over here ~ This is my original design for Wheatley.

Wheatley (Posted 2nd September 2011)

Moving this over to make room for photos ~

Transfers (Posted 5th August 2011)

Transfers are done! Transfer graphics were made by LittleGeeky who is amazing. O_~…Printing and ironing by me. :P

They look much better in person. ^_^

THIS MEANS WHEATLEY IS DONE. \o/

Shirt progress (Posted 30th July 2011)

It’s looking MUCH better than it was. My god did it look shit before. :P I’ve changed the design around a bit to make it look better in person. So that’s leaving the collar down, adding the side panels and making it more of a tunic at the sides. I also added the flashing lights down the middle (there’s 4 of them) because it looked a tad empty. I personally think it looks better without the belt…but I need to add the belt for the flashlight. Meh. We’ll see how it looks on the day. ^^; Just need to add the transfers to the shirt and it’s done.

Bottom Half (Posted 14th July 2011)

Finished the bottom half of my Wheatley cosplay. :P Top half is currently non existant. :P The trousers are a bit…designed for standing rather than sitting. Put it that way. But they’ll hold up so will do for now. xD But i’m in love with my boots. 8’D

Just have to make aaaaall the rest now. D:
