Costume Information

Cost : £1000

Most Portal cosplayers decide to cosplay as Chell. But being male makes it a bit different, thus I've decided to be a different Portal test subject.

We saw from Portal 2's multiplayer ending that Aperture did infact have male test subjects as well as women, so that's no problem.

The overall costume is the same as Chell's in Portal 2, with the exeption of the tank-top and long fall boots.

Instead I've opted for an Aperture Labs T-shirt underneath the overalls, and designed a "men's version" of the Aperture Science Long-fall boot.

this is looking fantastic - the boots and portal gun are really impressive (I know a couple of photographers are doing nightshoots at MCM - might look pretty cool with your lightup portalgun)

The night shoot would be pretty cool! Especially if I can find a bunch of other Portal cosplayers =D

Do, just hope there are some left! XD

-Thankyou! X3
I'm really happy with how they came out, plus they're really durable which I didn't expect from home-made footware XD

Thanks for answering my question! That's really cool, did you make a rickrack machine? I'd love to put one together, but dammit I prefer sewing and need to stop making all this armour.

No problem ^^
Not familiar with a rickrack, unless you mean Reprap? o.o;
I'm currently saving for one, but I know someone who has access to them and asked for them to make them for me =)

by HellsPlumber on Friday, 28 October, 2011 - 00:12

Oh god, so you were the test subject handing out the cubes! You handed one to our group's Wheatley, I believe. ♥ I really have to say kudos on both the cubes and the costume, they all look fantastic!
