Posted on August 10, 2011, Phil Hornshaw Wheatley is Real, in Home-Made Puppet Form (VIDEO)
Mark this down as the coolest thing you’ll see today.
It seems a cosplay artist who goes by TRP-Chan has constructed a working, scale model Wheatley puppet from Portal 2 that not only moves and glows realistically, it also includes quotes from the game — 10 of them. It’s like he’s (still) alive. And it’s awesome.
Watch the video below to see TRP-Chan doing a little Wheatley scene for you. After that you can check out her Deviant Art page here for a few photos of Wheatley and her other work, and read her cosplay blog here about the process of constructing him. No word as to when you’ll be able to commission several Portal 2 personality spheres to hang around your house as if it were the Aperture Science labs, but hopefully that day is coming, and soon.
