Materials

I used Pima Cotton Wale Pique for the fabric, and the jumpsuit is altered from Burda 7278. The Aperture tank top was just bought (it’s official Portal merchandise). The long fall blades are made with craftfoam with jewelry wire inside to hold their shape. (I plan on re-doing them though.)

The Portal gun was bought. It’s a 1:1 scale replica that has portal sounds, all portal light colors, and is customizable to be the gun for Chell, Atlas, or P-body.

Comments

I love the Portal games, and after seeing Chell’s Portal 2 look, I decided to attempt her costume. The jumpsuit mainly looks like her Portal 2 version (white lining, larger stripes), but I also used details from the first game to fill in parts I couldn’t see. I really love how the jumpsuit came out! Not only is it from one of my favorite games, but it’s also super comfortable to wear.

So far, I really like wearing it like her Portal 1 version XD;; I’d like to make her long fall boots from both games anyway, so that I have a choice between the two.
