so my friend Cyan and I were ATLAS and P-body for Sakura-con! It was like being freaking Johnny Depp on Main Street. five minutes out of the hotel people were asking for photos. We felt like celebrities! :D
There were a few complications, like Cyan’s head fell off a few times and my leg thingies kept getting fucked up - but whatever! It was still fantastic.
If you were one of the Chells, let me know! The first girl was only in for a few photos but the second stood with us for at least five minutes straight by that coke machine. And that gun was so heavy I felt like my arms were gonna fall off.
Thanks so much to anybody who took photos or complimented us on our costumes. Cyan and I were exhausted afterwards but we both had a great time while we were there, which was only for like 40 minutes.
I’ve had a lot of questions about Chell cosplays or Portal props. You know what that means? Time for a long list of links to tutorials and other resources! As a bonus you will also get a tasty cake recipe!
WEHHHH…this cosplay is well, it’s mediocre compared to others. I did this for the recent LVL Up Expo that happened on February 16-17 since I am the graphic design officer for UNLV Game Club, and we were there to be vendors and representatives. However, the date of the event did not give me enough time to prepare a proper cosplay. I did not have time to modify the jumpsuit and paint all the white logos on it. I’m still broke-ass poor and cannot afford some real deal Long Fall Boots for the moment. So I went cheapo and ordered the Long Fall Socks instead. ( ;3; ) I also do not have the money right now to order a set of these circle lenses.
Don’t mind the yellow ballet flats…I really didn’t want to get my feet dirty and get that uncomfortable feeling of stepping over pointy rocks.
And I know, I know…my jumpsuit is rolled up too high. I didn’t realize that until after the photo shoot. -o-;; I kind of forgot how Chell wore her jumpsuit in Portal 2; it’s been ages since I least dealt with the Portal fandom, so yeah.
And I cut my bangs because my boyfriend wanted to see how I looked like with bangs in front of my forehead. I am growing them out now, but they’re still not long enough like Chell’s.
But LOOK LOOK! I finally have the hand-held portal device, at least.I like to thank my boyfriend for buying the Portal gun as my birthday present.( ;3;)
