Valve Gathering part 3!
It’s me! It’s me! I’m the portal 1 Chell!
Fanime is almost here! Time to start packing and finalize my lineup. I’m still not 100% sure if this is it. I’ve been considering Marceline, Dr. Girlfriend and Buttercup but… I’m not sure I care enough. Even though I “committed” to gatherings with two of those, these four are what I’m really excited about! Also, the less extremes in characters, the less makeup I have to pack! Now to dig around my room and find my nude shoes, white tights, my good wig cap and whatever else I need!
I think I may have a temporary solution to my Chell footwear for Fanime! While not my ideal situation, I’m considering making foam boot covers for my United Nude Eamz ankle booties. Since they were a lucky find, and expensive to replace, I don’t want to harm them at all. I’ll just use craft foam molded to my leg and find some way to attach them underneath. Then, I’ll slap some metal wreath hangers on the back and attach the bottom part under the heel.
Fourth time is indeed the charm!! This tank top is EXACTLY what I wanted in the first place! I’ve always figured that if Chell has to run around doing tests in a heavy jumpsuit it would make sense for her to wear an athletic tank top with a built in bra and wicking fabric. I found this one from Adidas second hand on eBay. I won it for $11!
Woo! The jumpsuit’s done! All I need to do now is distress it! Then I have to do the heel springs somehow…
Yesss!! Just about done with time to spare!
Aw yiss, look at all that progress! I’ll probably have it finished in the next day or two!! Since taking these pictures I’ve added all the pockets and the collar. I may move the patch, it’s kind of irking me there.
Oh yeah, I guess since Fanime is now 4 weeks away I should maybe post my cosplay plans! I don’t know what particular days I’ll be wearing each one. I know there’s a Valve gathering and a Bioshock gathering I’ll be busting my hump to make it to. I may even try and make the Adventure Time or Cartoon Network gatherings too, depending on what else I feel like packing.
Here’s my more or less official costume list!
Chell - Portal (not sure 1 or 2 yet. Depends on the @#$^* footwear)
Veronica Madaraki - Franken Fran (my friend Diana is finishing this for me!)
Louise Belcher - Bob’s Burgers
Little Sister - Bioshock 2
Here’s some more awesome shots of my Little Sister costume! Shot by Winter Wish Photography. Eleanor is being cosplayed by my friend, Jenna.
