Wheatley from Portal 2 in headpiece form!

Made for a friend.

Components: Paper mache, foam insulation, burlap, buckram. Painted with a combination of acrylic, spray paint and airbrushing over a gesso base.

It also contains a miniature bluetooth-enabled speaker in a pocket facing out the right side, so that Wheatley's sound clips from the game could be played via a .mp3 on the wearer's phone.

(Yes, I know, the 'handles' are missing. Those may be added later, the components I'd planned to use for the mounts didn't work out; we also may do some distressing of the paint job before the next use)

    That is really quite creative, bud.

      Thanks :) ....this is actually attempt #3. Originally was going to do foam... But the stuff I picked up for that turned out to be too thick/inflexible. And then the next type I tried was too flimsy :P

      If I hadn't wasted so much time on those first couple attempts, this version likely would have had the handles and distressing done.

      I'll post Space Core's photo as well once I've had a chance to repair it.
