Portal Cosplay

This one's for you, LQ and Erudite. Some guy, obviously in full support of his girlfriend's cosplay habit, BUILT her an Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device.

Every year, around late August or so, I tell myself "This year, I'm a-gonna assemble the greatest video game Halloween costume ever...assembled!" That proclamation then evolves into "You know what? Maybe I'll get into cosplay, too! It looks so fun!", but ultimately settles into the dust with a "What time is it? Man, I have work to do."

Best costume I ever made? I was pretty happy with my Mario in 2005 and my Wayne Campbell in... 1998. What about you guys? Best costume ever. Go.

Omg I want that so bad. GUN WANT WANT GUN.

My brain, all sick from being sick, is having trouble remembering my Halloween costumes. I was definitely proud of Silk Spectre II since I sewed that shite from scratch! In middle school, I was Gothic Buffy the Cartoon Slayer and wore white out around my neck and carried around a tweety bird stuffed animal stabbed with a pencil. Hmm it has suddenly dawned on me why I was considered to be such a dork in middle school.

Also proud of my Starbuck, my 5 stages of Britney group costume and my senior year of high school elvyn concubine get up.

I'm going to have to go to the hospital now. I need a blood transfusion, as my veins now seem to contain nothing but WANT.

excellent a place to see how look the people in costumes, well I don't like be a cosplayer, but I always admired to all people who do this, some disguise as anime character other as video games character and a minimum part as viagra online, however this last costume is the best.
