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

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

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:
