GLaDOS Papercraft 1 by DemonBa55Player GLaDOS Papercraft 1 by DemonBa55Player
My paper craft of GLaDOS from Portal. This model took me about six days to complete. I constructed it using the same technique I used to built my Portal Turret. I glued each piece onto a big sheet of sketching paper, then cut them out and glued them onto index cards, and lastly started building (folding and glueing).

As you can see I also added some details to make it look more like a complete GLaDOS. I added the rubber parts for the tubes, the antennas and the pistons on her neck I carved out of wooden skewers and toothpicks, and the handles on the cores were made out of wires from twist-ties.

I'm still amazed that I was able to build this model without any instructions. All I used for references were photos and screenshots of GLaDOS. I think it was fun building the model without instructions, it gave me a challenge and allowed me to utilize my skills in the field of model building.

Again, I thank BillyBob884 for making and posting the model on Deviant Art. Now I want to build a paper model of GLaDOS from Portal 2... If one will be made.

This was a really fun model to build and I love it. I give this model a five star rating for complexity, skill, and EPICNESS!!!

Hope you all like. ^_^

Well, you found me. Congratulations. Was it worth it? Because despite your
violent behavior, the only thing you've managed to break so far is my heart.
Maybe you could settle for that, and we'll just call it a day. I guess we both
know that isn't going to happen. You chose this path, now I have a surprise for
you. Deploying surprise in five... four... Time out for a second. That wasn't
supposed to happen. Do you see that thing that fell out of me? What is that?
It's not the surprise, I've never seen it before. Nevermind, it's a mystery
I'll solve later, by myself, because you'll be dead.

lol I couldn't help it. As soon as I saw this the whole "meeting GLaDOS face to face for the first time bit" sprung into my head and thus I had to recite the whole thing. From memory. I have a life I swear. :XD:

Hahaha, I know. I do the same thing too. Whenever I'm flustered with college work, Cave Johnson's lemon rant pops into my head and I begin to recite it... Out loud. I love that rant. Damn lemons. (>w<)

Hey there. I...I,uh...have no idea what a GLaDOS is, or which side of Portal they grow on, but I love things that are *constructed* especially when they're made of not-typical materials, and the finished piece looks as great as this one does. I've seen real ILM Star Wars models, and this is as good as any of them. It is indeed saturated in "EPICNESS"!

Why thank you very much. GLaDOS (Genetic Life-form and Disk Operating System) is an AI Unit that was created by Aperture Laboratories, she was made to run the facility. She is basically the "bad guy" in PORTAL and PORTAL 2.
Like you, I too love things that have been constructed by non-typical materials. Again, I thank you for this awesome comment and I'am glad that you like it.

Hey, this is pretty-

Wait, you made this out of paper?

*head explodes*

Seriously, this is incredible. I honestly wouldn't have thought this kind of thing could be made out of paper, and it looks so amazing! How long did it take you to put all of this together? D:

she really is the smartest thing ever...she is so smart, she knows she resides in a game...and since she has far more dialog than the main character, she is bound to be much more popular...and so even the main character is more likely to be killed off permanently than her
