GLaDOS - I've got a surprise for you... by elliria GLaDOS - I've got a surprise for you... by elliria
"I've got a surprise for you after this next test. Not a fake, tragic surprise like last time. A real surprise, with tragic consequences. And real confetti this time. The good stuff."

I've had the idea for a true-to-game version of GLaDOS for a few years now, and decided to tackle it over the past three months. Of course, that had to include hanging upside down from a five-foot structure (anything for accuracy, right?). I went with her Portal 2 version for the additional detail and grittiness. I made the armor, structure, harness, and backdrop from scratch, including wiring her up with almost a hundred LEDs and painting the in-game graffiti.

Character: GLaDOS (Portal 2)
Photographer: :icondarkainmx: Darkain Multimedia

Constructed and cosplayed by me

This is pretty awesome! :D 
At first, I thought that this was a cake or something (don't ask xD), but then I read the description and saw it was a cosplay. I would really like to see this in real life. :3

Be nice if it did. Found this on youtube and was like "why does this always happen? Seeing awesome stuff at midnight, then watching a video that creeps me out (doug rattman or herobrine)... Why!!!!!"

Right? Or just the entire dialogue track of GLaDOS from both games. :D That would be great too. 
Uuuugh... because the...cake is a lie? *bricked for overused slogan*

SUCCESS.  Haha, I'm wearing all of the armor and hanging from the structure with a harness - GLaDOS is surprisingly human-shaped.

Any chance you would post a video of you taking this on/off so we can see how it works?

There was a fair amount of footage taken at PAX when I was getting into the structure.  I dug up one if you want to check it out:

thanks for sharing this video, I've been staring at photos trying to figure out how this actually worked in person... I think I can safely say this is the most mind-blowing cosplay I've ever seen.

I absolutely love this cosplay. You did such an amazing job. It would be so fun to be in it for a little while and be GLaDOS!
