Aperture Steampunk Handheld Portal Device



So this all started with me wanting to dress up as Chell for Halloween. Cutting a long story short I got completely carried away, and a simple Halloween costume turned into a 2-3 Month Cosplay build!
...But it was all worth it :P

I absolutely love building things, especially with found objects or bits of scrap nobody loves anymore. The idea for a Steampunk version came from this as I much prefer rusty cogs to pristine white anyday. A lot of people have asked what this is made from... as far as I can remember the ingredients are:

2 antique clock movements, 1 +1/2 hangers, Metal teapot stand, plastic mechano, plumbing parts, 1 plant pot, 1 hair gel pot + various lids, plastic tub (those ones you get nuts in the the supermarket), plastic tubing, lots and lots of nuts and bolts, miniature storage box (for the battery compartment), pocket laser disc (you can get them on ebay if anyone's interested), 3 lightbulbs, carboard tube, metal covering from an old hairbrush, AV socket, tons of odds and ends from my parents garage, oh and of course the usuals - milliput, humbrol and warhammer paints, hot melt glue and about 6 gallons of superglue.
...that's about as much as I can remember... enjoy!

EDIT: Woop!! Over 2000 favourites on this - seriously can't believe it.
Thanks sooo much to everyone whose commented... you are all lovely :D Sorry I can't respond to everyone's comments but I'll do my best to answer any questions!

It’s like a mix of the portal gun and the gravity gun, kinda against the lore but it’s awesome anyway
