GLaDOS Headpiece Tutorial by ember-ablaze GLaDOS Headpiece Tutorial by ember-ablaze
Here is how I made my GLaDOS headpiece! It took me two evenings to make. (The paint coats took the longest!)

Disclaimer: This is how I personally made my headpiece. I don't claim this is the right or easiest way to make a piece like this! I was short on time and money. :D If I had to make this piece again, there are a lot of things I would change.

Estimated Cost of Materials in USD:
Styrofoam Circle: On sale for $8 (regular price: $16)
Black Paint: 1.99
White Paint: 1.99
Craft Foam (package): 4.99
Poster Board: 0.79
Sewing Pins (package): 1.99
Tea Light (Package of three): 1.00
Head Band: 1.99

Approx. cost: 22.74 (assuming you already have a hot glue gun)


Again, this headpiece is not as accurate as I would like, but I hope this tutorial gives you some ideas on how to make a headpiece of your own! I hope you get some good ideas from how I made mine!

Wow! Thank you so much! I had no idea it'd be this easy! If I might ask, where did you get your wig?

I bought it on Ebay! It was actually $4 with free shipping. :) I've used it for both of my GLaDOS cosplays and it's held up really well for the duration of two conventions. I always love finding a deal. :D

Yeah, it was great! I don't have any foam, though, so I used cardboard. xP Sorry to keep bugging you, but what would you suggest for cleaning up some of the seams?

I know my seams were a little messy in the tutorial, but hot glue is my best friend. :) I use a low heat glue gun and run the glue along the seam, wait for it to cool just a little, and run my finger along it to smooth it out. As long as it's smooth enough, it'll look better once it's painted! :)

Thanks so much! Here's my (mostly) finished headpiece thingy: blissfully-random.deviantart.c…

Please let me know what you think of it! I still need to obtain/attach a headband.
