Chell and Human Wheatley Costumes

chell and portal

If you’re going to dress as Chell from Portal, it’s nice to have a GLaDOS or Wheatley to walk around with. This duo, cosplayed by Zoe and Bradley, went to Florida Supercon as the two characters and I love Bradley’s take on a human version of the artificial intelligence Wheatley. The Chell costume is also spot on, and Zoe pulled the costume together without using any patterns – except the orange jumpsuit. She explains on Tumblr:

I made both of the shirts, the wrist bandage and the leggings with no patterns and various types of jersey fabric. These were all either up-cycled pieces from my retired cosplays, or fabric that I had left over from other projects that I used to make these pieces from scratch.

The orange jumpsuit was bought from eBay for two reasons – I dislike making overalls, and with three other costumes to finish for the same deadline I was a little pressed for time. I chopped it up and took it in where appropriate to fit me better, then added off-white stripes to the sleeves. Bradley dirtied it up for me using paint and food colouring. If I had been cosplaying alone, I probably would have left the jumpsuit as it was, but after some discussion we both felt that leaving it pristine would look odd next to his battered and damaged Wheatley – so we put some thought into what areas of the jumpsuit would be grubby and I let him go to town!
