Credit for the photo goes to the lovely Wigsandneedles ([link]), a lovely cosplayer who I had the pleasure of meeting there! I really appreciate you letting me use this. <3
I did go last year as you remember([link]
), but this year, ohhhh man. This year was fucking wonderful!
I've always wanted to cosplay GLaDOS since I first played Portal. She's one of my favorite characters ever and just being able to cosplay her was amazing. Almost didn't make it since the mask gave us so much trouble. We must have had to remake that thing three times because literally everything with it went wrong. But we pulled it together! I think it turned out a little too wide but that's okay; I was just happy to get it looking alright.
Everyone there was so nice, too! I got almost nonstop compliments and I was stopped almost every five minutes to have my picture taken. Plus it was great to interact with some other cosplayers. Meet this group of the four cores from the second game and we did a big photo-shoot thing, which was fantastic~ It was just all in all incredible and god I wish we didn't have to leave so early on this final day.
I probably won't be doing GLaDOS again next year(since I have plans for something else) but I really hope to get more use out of this costume. We put a lot of work into it so I'd hate to wear it only once and then forget about it, but until then, Big G will be hanging on my wall until the next time.
