Oops, I made a golem.
I’ve been wanting to do a GW2 Asura cosplay for ages, but I have an obvious problem: they’re only 2ft tall! I’m pretty short, but I’m not THAT short. So, I figured I just needed to give it a little scale and build a golem as well! I just finished with the structure of the body and arms - still working out how to make stilts for the legs. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to climb into my golem and walk around, but also be able to stand outside of it in costume. I’m building this to a 9-ft scale, so it’s going to be MASSIVE :D
Commander tag and me for scale.

I’m getting more beautiful photos back from Fanime than I know what to do with! It’s one of my favorite cons for the sheer concentration of talent all gathered in one place. This was a spontaneous snapshot by Yao Saelee Photography & Design and I’m so pleased with the result.

My friend Kristin just opened up her Etsy shop filled with video game figures and accessories! Personally, I can’t wait to grab a couple Portal companion cubes and GW2 quaggans, they’re so cute (can you tell which ones were my requests?). Check it out at etsy.com/shop/Cakeisnotalie and the other geeky stuff she does at The Cake is Not a Lie.

Costographer completely nailed this shot of my GLaDOS cosplay at Fanime! We found this great section of the con center that was perfect for run-down Aperture Science. I’d consider it a success when I’m creeped out by myself xD
I opted for a game-accurate version of GLaDOS, which of course had to involve me hanging upside down. I built a 6-ft structure from PVC pipe, created a custom harness, and constructed the armor body from Worbla.

I’m so excited for this next batch of photos that are rolling in, because they’re full of creepy GLaDOS goodness! KL Media did a wonderful job capturing GLaDOS in her natural habitat…er, making the convention center look gloomy and cool. I think he’s earned a brief reprieve from deadly neurotoxin, don’t you?
