Description
For awhile I wanted to cosplay Chell from Portal. I adored the original game and once I saw her design for Portal 2 and played through that I knew I had to cosplay at least someone from the game. For awhile I put her off as we looked nothing alike and I was so scared I was going to fail. With some encouragement from Wheatley and Space Core (MoonLily and Bakurakat) I set to work on this cosplay. In all honestly I'm really pleased with how it came out. Yes, there are elements that I need to improve on but I really though I did a good job and proved myself wrong.

I would love to see this cosplay but it would be fun when you're trying to make conversation with people. XD

This really did suit you Ellie! Makes me feel bad there aren't any Portal cosplays that suit me!

I think you looked lovely in this. Even in pictures. I'm quite sad I couldn't see it on person

I thought my portal senses were twitching for some reason.. ;D This looks freaking awesome! You're one of the best Chell-players I've managed to hunt do-- eeerrr... see. ¬¬

Really hope I can chase you down as GLaDOS sometime.. Either that or just mug you for the awesome boots. And there will be cake. Obviously. *shiftystaring*

Portal boots progress (Posted 12th November 2011)

So far... ok. Fabric paint didn't work at all so I"ve had to go with acrylic. I really didn't want to as it cracks but it's the only thing that would stay on. I cut the front of the boots and hot glued the inside fabric to the white PVC (as my sewing machine wouldn't take it) The curl things are foam you cook in the oven but my oven is too small and 20 years old so they didn't turn out so great. Might try the hairdryer on hot and see if that works. Got strap belts coming in the post and then I can sew the straps quite easily and add the velcro. Then they'll be done ^_^

Base wig (Posted 24th October 2011)

My god this base wig looks NOTHING like the picture at all D8 I don't have time to send it back unfortuently so I'm going to have to alter the hell out of this one to make it work.
I need to straighten it with hot water and cut it, then alter it so it can be tied in a pony tail. Finally I need to sort the bangs out at the front, maybe try and clip some back or sew then backe into the weft? I dunno...

DEM BOOTS! (Posted 21st October 2011)

The base of my boots arrived. I'll have to draw up some patterns soon for them before cutting them up.

All I have so far. (Posted 11th October 2011)

I need to alter the boiler suit and alter the tops. Then it's a question of altering the damn boots. Also have to alter the wig when it arrives.
