A Cosplayer's boyfriend creates an amazing life-size portal gun to go along with her costume. Fans of Portal (also known as the Greatest Game Ever Made) will drool over the images provided in the source.

A portal gun my boyfriend made for my Aperture Science Test Subject costume.

It lights up both blue and orange along the tube, in the barrel, and in the "indicator light" on top. The light switch is a two-way toggle in the back by the handle. It's 22" long including the prongs and weighs about 15 lbs.

For any inquiries about the prop, permissions, commissions, etc., please write to volpinprops [at] gmail [dot] com.

    That actually looks really good.

    If I saw that, I'd pick it up and half expect it to work.

    It DOES look pretty spiffy.

    Looks a lot like the real portal gun (going by memory).

    Remember to warn her not to touch the operation end of the device, not to look in the operational end of the device or submerge the device in liquid even partially. Finally, under no circumstances should she *bzzt*.

    Looks like he got custom-molded plastic and parts for the whole thing. 'Cause you can't just make that out of paper mache and aluminum foil.

    That guy has skills. Serious commitment to the job. Quite what kind of a party it was with people dressed as "Aperture Science Test Subjects" I think I'd rather not know...

      People these days what? Have access to materials and the skills to use them? Plenty of people spend a great deal of time working on all sorts of projects. That's why there are whole stores like Hobby lobby dedicated to crafts.

      Now I just have to get back to my little project. Probably not nearly as cool as this. But personally interesting.
