I was in a kind of Portal-y mood and like… whenever I poke about with human Portal stuff I really just design stuff as costumes or potential cosplay whatever, in this case I was playing around with a more theatrical sort of outfit, sort of weirdly inspired by like… Mother Gingerbread from The Nutcracker, somehow. Not sure how. Just elaborate costumes I guess. Or maybe because it’s multiple people?
But I was thinking about how to portray what we learned about the cores from Portal 2, the machinery attached to GLaDOS in an attempt to control her, and sort of combining it with what was seen at the end of Portal, the bits of her (or we had assumed were her at the time) that were falling off and Chell destroyed, and then like trying to show this via cosplay contest or something, meant to be for the stage, using my old GLaDOS design (and half-remembered core designs I never showed anyone haha, but like… pre-Portal 2 core designs) and sort of this tether who is attached to whom thing and as each core was removed the line would be attached somewhere on stage until GLaDOS could no longer move freely (though even with like the four cores she has a hard time moving but that’s the point right?)
Haha it’s dumb which is why this is just a fast sketch and all but it’s something I’ve done, so…
