Well I just recently played the PC game, Portal, and fell in love.
The game was fun and GLaDOS (the computer) was just so darkly funny, I HAD to make something.
Looking at the game version of her though, she is a lot harder to pay tribute with crafts than you think. (see link below)


With that problem, I decided to personify her, and design a wearable outfit I can sport at A-Kon.
I found some pingpong balls, paint, superglue and decided to get crack'in!
First on the To-Do list was the AngerSphere.

I am pretty pleased with her.
Even if the costume never turns out, I'd still be happy with my clippies! Cheesy
1 down 3 more spheres to go!
Next, will be the adorable Curiosity Sphere.

This is such an awesome idea for a costume! Good luck! It looks cool at the moment.  Cheesy

I like to randomly run around and yell "The cake is a lie!" to all my guy friends since they're the only ones that's played Portal and I watched them play it. I can't watch the game for long though.... it makes me really motion sick with all the portal switching and screen reorientation. @_@

^,^ Glad you guys like her
The game was really fun.
Try a few lvls and you'll love it too.
I started out watching, then slowly took over my bf's game.
I was hooked... Roll Eyes

After the spheres, I am making other neat Portal accessories like a companion cube <3 and a cake purse!

Cool, you could even put a red LED in there for the glowy effect.
