|Cost :||Will be about £5 for the jumpsuit|
|Time Taken :||Few Hours Research and a few days sewing.|
|Chell from Portal; the girl with the portal gun. |
The easiest part of this costume had to be finding the orange overall jumpsuit thing to become the main part of the costume, just need to buy it first. I did have problems getting the right size and material ><;
This costume has no shoes, I was thinking of buying some clear shoes to wear 'cuz I don't really want to walk around the London Expo barefoot! XD
The little feet things should be easy enough to make, maybe out of foam or something XD
The hardest part will be the portal gun, which I don't think I will be able to make myself...
New note: I didn't finish this for Expo, so I'm going to wear this for Fuyucon 09!
It has taken me 8 months... (Posted 25th August 2009)
...to actually start on the costume lmao. I didn't wear it for May Expo, so I'm going to wear it for Fuyucon. It's all finished now, minus the leg supports. I don't have a camera on me so I can't take any pictures. However, the main part of the costume is FINISHED! I actually managed to finish something for once :D!!
Looks like I might not be wearing this anymore... (Posted 17th January 2009)
Well, you see however much I love Chell, her costume is kinda impractical (being barefoot) and I know I can easily buy some sandals or something but it's not only that. I'd rather match at least 1 person who i'm with at the expo and since my boyfriend is going as Travis Touchdown, I thought I could go as Sylvia Christel (since I have practically all of her outfit anyway o-o;) or Bad Girl 'cause her dress is so cute ^^
So yeah, I'll be finishing the costume as I don't want to leave it half-finished because that would be a waste... I'm going to bring the costume with me anyway, maybe minus a portal gun and plus a plushie cake or weighted companion cube. :D
Its verrry orange... (Posted 8th January 2009)
Receieved the overall/boiler suit today, 4 days after the eBay aution ended! I actually tried it on (over my clothes) and it's not too big (though I was wearing stuff underneath, so that probably means its bigger than I think XD). Soooo getting it early means I might be able to work on it a bit this weekend, 'cuz otherwise I'm never going to get round to it XD. Also, it smells dusty :D
I should take a before picture...
