GLaDOS Cosplay by Meketaten GLaDOS Cosplay by Meketaten
Worn to Anime Boston 09, I was GLaDOS, my friend was Chell. We got an EXCELLENT reception! Everyone was so proud of me for cosplaying GLaDOS. Except for one guy, who silently pointed a gun at me and mumbled something about too many lies. [link] "You can't hurt me."

This was the basic idea: [link] Flip GLaDOS upside down and try to salvage all the human-esque parts of her. I guess I could have been more specific but I've really grown fond of this design. :)

[link] lol GLaDOS is so pimp.

OH! The best part: I had a voice changer! It was epic! When people heard it they were very impressed that I had gone the extra mile. I loved everyone's enthusiasm for the costume. <3

You bought a voice changer off of Amazon, you say? Was it specifically meant for GLaDOs or just a robotic voice changer? Was there a brand or anything?

No special brand, it was just a toy voice changer. In retrospect you couldn't really hear it at the con but it was a silly extra touch.

Okay I mentioned somewhere over in the No You Don't piece about yours being my favorite GLaDOS cosplay - this is the photo I mentioned somewhere in my comment that nails the attitude, perfectly. :D

Love the way it looks like you both are dancing here, too.

Thanks so much!! :heart: Yeah, I thought this was the one you were talking about. I wanted to be as in character as possible when I cosplayed GLaDOS. It doesn't always work, but sometimes it does. X)

You're welcome. :D

I think it's a credit to the writers and Ellen McLain that GLaDOS is tricky to imitate or come up with lines for. :D

I can't really talk to the idea of acting in character, but I've had the occasional moment where I suddenly realize I said something in that kind of voice, and just laugh afterwards.

I SHOULD BRING ITTTTTTTT UGH BUT ITS IN WORCESTER UGH

It's not large, about the size of my hand, and I got it on Amazon.com. Admittedly it wasn't amazing, but I liked having it there for the extra effect when I was randomly talking to people at the con. "What... is that... is that a voice changer?" I SHOULD BRING IT ON THE 5TH TO PLAY AROUND WITH!

Three weeks after beating Portal 2 I am still stewing in mad glee. YOU HAVE JUST REFUELED THAT MAD GLEE UP TO ELEVEN. <3 Out of all the GLaDOS cosplays I've seen - a few in real life - you've got the most spot-on embodiment of what she is in my mind. <3 <3 <3 (Also your devID cracks me up so much. :heart: And got Telephone stuck in my head. In GLaDOS voice.)
You make me want to go to all these cons on the other side of the continent aaaagggghhhhhhh :heart: But they're on the other side of the friggin continent sob

And I LOVE your voice changer idea! LAKSJDHAOEIF:ALK WISH I COULD HAVE SEEN AND HEARD YOU IN PERSON. Might also steal this idea some time in the not-too-distant future. I, um, kind of sealed my own fate when I doodled my own design on a whim a week ago and showed it to a particularly enthusiastic friend WHO TALKS ME INTO THESE TYPES OF THINGS OTL.

My only criticism is WHY DON'T YOU HAVE MORE PICTURES D:

HNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGH THIS COMMENT CAME AT SUCH A GOOD TIME. KNOW WHY? Because I'm thinking about redoing this costume to make like... GLaDOS 2.0, Portal 2 style... but I'm not sure! I put so much effort into this and I think people would recognize this more as "GLaDOS" at a con.

Let me guess you're on the West coast? DO YOU GO TO SAKURACON?! I might go there... eventually... I'm getting too many Seattle based friends not to go. XP

My advice to you DOOOOOOOOOO ITTTTTTTTT!! I wanna see the design! :D I feel like I know a bunch of GLaDOS cosplayers now (if by a bunch I mean a handful... because GLaDOS is still super undercosplayed) just from making this design. I love seeing different takes on her! And once people get who you are at the con everyone is super excited to see you!

ALSO I AGREE ABOUT THE MOAR PICTURES. XP Working to rectify that. I didn't realize I only have the ONE picture up on DeviantArt... So I'll be taking more soon! I wear this to almost every con I go to so I'm surprised I never thought to put up more pictures.

DOOOO IIITTTTTTTTTTTT
Or at the very least do the design which will be FUN AND AWESOME. You could always bring both, if the con lasts more than a day. ;D If you do the design job right WHICH I AM SURE YOU WILL recognition wouldn't be a problem, judging by the widely different interpretations out there that are usually equally well-received.

NO I DON'T, UNFORTUNATELY. WRONG END OF THE COAST. xD; Fanime, in Northern California, is the only convention I regularly attend because it's 15 minutes from my house lololol. As things are this whole comp sci major business kind of makes sure I have no life through the majority of college, much less traveling to cons in the middle of a quarter. xD; MAYBE eventually I'll get a good enough excuse to visit friends/family around con-time to one of those further-away places. I wish.

Considering how popular and memetastic she is, I know what you mean about undercosplayed. xD I certainly was super excited when one descended upon my table with cake in hand! I DEFINITELY PLAN ON TAKING THAT ADVICE, ESPECIALLY SINCE I'VE GOT ABOUT 3 FRIENDS LINED UP GOING "I WANNA BE CHELL." 8D; More friends mute lunatics test subjects yesssssssssss~ I bet you know just about all the GLaDOS cosplayers by now! xD

Also. Here you go. xD [link]

I look forward to the rectification of this lack-of-images error! <3

Love your dessign! It's pretty stylish and elegant, and good thing about flipping GLaDOS down and find the humanesque aspects of her.
One question... you said you used a voice changer to modify your voice... where did you get it and how does it work?

And thanks!! I put a lot of thought into the design. :D

It kind of worked. lol It's not *amazing*, I kind of trained myself to speak in GLaDOS's monotone, but the voice changer added the extra computer buzzy-ness to my voice that made it sound cool. For me it was all in the details. (I now have yellow contacts that go with this costume, so, yeah, details are important to me.)

XD The next cosplay I'm doing is either GLaDOS or the Companion Cube! If I choose GLaDOS, do you have any suggestions?
