I don’t know who is responsible for originating the “Carlos the Aperture!Scientist” headcanon but I want to kiss them on the mouth
(Cecil named the turret Ezekiah and in a fit of delirium Carlos reprogrammed it to shoot silly string instead of bullets and to amuse Khoshekh with its laser sight)
This is some of the geekiest, most ingenious and creative cosplay we’ve ever seen. Actually, it’s equal parts cosplay and performance art. These photos were taken in Seattle at PAX Prime 2013. If you’ve played Portal 2 by Valve then you’ll have recognized it straight away, but perhaps you didn’t recognize that there’s a human being inside that fantastic rigging. This is GLaDOS (short for Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System), the wonderfully snarky and sarcastic AI computer system from the Portal video games. Widely considered to be one of the greatest video game characters, she’s the main antagonist in both games.
The person behind and actually inside this awesome cosplay is Athena Cole, who cosplays under the name Enayla. Although she spent years puzzling over how to do it without over anthropomorphizing the non-humanoid character, she spent about three months actually creating the GLaDOS costume and suspension system.
The structure she’s hanging from in the above picture was constructed out of PVC piping and a custom harness made from parachute cords. In order to get the angle right, Cole has to face down with her belly forward and hold her head upright from that position. However, the costume is also padded to hell and back on the inside.
“I’m attached at the shoulders, ribs, hips, and upper thighs, and have a knee and foot strap to hold up my legs.” Cole said. “With all of that, the only genuinely uncomfortable part was holding my head up at that angle. Only slightly sore the next day!”
The rest of the costume is Worbla, which is apparently a special kind of molding thermoplastic favored by cosplayers. There are a lot of incredibly amazing in-progress shots on the Enayla Cosplay Facebook page and her Tumblr that show you the ridiculous level of detail that Cole used in creating the piece, right down to the crackle effect on the armor.

(The Enrichment Center would like to remind you that these Valentines are part of the Holiday Spirit Initiative and no way guarantee you companionship.)
omg wth this is amazing *_* best valentines!!!!
I went to Long Beach ComicCon yesterday for the first time. It’s a small con, with not much in the way of panels, but it had a large Artists Alley and a lot of cosplayers. I dressed up as the Riddler (my first time cosplaying in YEARS) and got my photo taken a whole bunch of times. Here’s a few photos I got with and of other people. Check out the captions for more information.
Tony: Of course, it’s SCIENCE.
“Defend Your Home With Your Very Own Portal 2 Turret”
Valve and the merchandise vendor, Gaming Heads, has teamed up together to bring you the latest in nerdy décor. The Aperture turret stands at approximately 16 inches tall and includes a motion sensor that activates the eye light of your deadly friend. The turret is constructed of poly-stone, and is hand painted and finished. The statue also comes packed in a foam interior full coloured box with a validation card that ensures your product is genuine.
The exclusive version of this turret features a sound chip which plays in-game sounds from Portal 2, but has unfortunately already sold out (however you can be put on a wait list). The standard turrets are still available for $299.99 each, but numbers are limited and will be given on a first come first sever basis.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh my god I need this now.
