This is really good.
You have to do some kind of Tutorial on how you did the core in your hair. and how you did the clothes
*Has the urge to do a Space Core cosplay*

This is the wig that I bought. ([link]) I did a little bit of styling/cutting for the bangs.

It looks great! I especially love the headpiece (props for wearing it to a convention, it looks very heavy!). :D

:iconbritthebadger:
britthebadger Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012
Thanks! The headpiece isn't too heavy...just a bit. The weight mostly only limits head movement...(too far left or forward is not such a good idea... :P)
I looked at your work too! Looks great! how did you get your eye piece to stay on?
Reply
:iconemmalyn:
Emmalyn Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Haha, yes, I can see how left or forward would be difficult. Also the depth-perception problem of having one eye covered (and in my case, the dominant eye). Oh dear. XD

And thanks so much! :iconcblushplz: I attached the optic/LED assembly to a thick elastic headband that runs around my forehead and under the wig. It worked quite well, even when I bent over, because I made a soft clay base to fit it to my face. It worked a bit too well, though; I had lines on my face after I took it off, and it gave me a headache after 5 hours at a convention. ^_^;

britthebadger Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012
Yeah...I know about elastic-headband headaches. For my very first costume that I made, I had ears that secured the same way under the wig. Great way to attach things securely, though... ^_^

Oh gosh yes, good elastic may hurt a bit, but it never budges! The headband I used even had rubber painted on the underside to help it keep from slipping. :O (Woulda hurt like heck if I had long hair, haha. Good thing I don't.)

So cool! It's quite hard to pull off a GLaDOS cosplay that is instantly recognizable, so hats off to you!








Realizing that this is a VALVe cosplay and I just mentioned hats, I am now literally rolling on the floor laughing.

Could you please tell me how you made this head? Including the LED parts (I'm a noob)
I would love to cosplay as GLaDOS for a Manga and Videogame con in Switzerland and finding good GLaDOS looking cosplays is hard.

Thank you for your time :)

My friend and I are cosplaying Portal characters! She is really excited to do GLaDOS, but she really wants to try this cosplay. How did you make the head piece, and how did you get the voice to talk?
Reply
:iconbritthebadger:
britthebadger Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011
Just as a warning, the headpiece is really heavy. If I were to redo it, I would probably rethink materials for a lighter piece, but I was working with what I had.

Ok. So. The base is a plaster cast of half of my face. It encompasses a good portion of the back of my head too. I then took a square mesh sort of chicken wire to make the base of the curve and covered that with paper mache. The paper mache was still lumpy and I didn't have a smooth enough curve or surface, so I used clay to finish it off. there is also lots of modge podge involved to help keep the clay from having noticeable cracks and for the shine over the paint. The side pieces were made from mostly platic orange juice carton (two layers glued together to be thicker)...lots of hot glue too. The earpice has a pvc base and the protrusions from it are molded with clay.

I had an mp3 player with the soundtracks and quotes from the game. You extract the quotes from the game audio files (.wav) if you have it on your computer. I had a mini speaker rigged up at the back of the headpiece.

I'm glad you like it so much!
Other small details: the waist cinch/corset is a separate piece from the dress. I also had one black and one yellow contact in so that I could still be creepy and in character even without the headpiece on.

How about the LEDs?
Reply
:iconbritthebadger:
britthebadger Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2012
The LEDs are pretty simple. They are battery powered...I'm personally not terribly tech savvy and didn't have the right tools with me at the time, so I asked a friend of mine who is to put them together. I am sure with a little research on the internet could yield some good results for how to wire basic LEDs...

my account on cosplay.com (same user name) has a couple more pictures (one of the side of the headpiece) and description of how I made the costume. Enjoy!
