Wheatley Pumpkin by Athey Wheatley Pumpkin by Athey
Portal 2!

It's Wheatley, Potato GLaDOS - or in this case, gourd GLaDOS, and a little tiny pumpkin turret. It's not on here, but there are two LEDs on the gourd GLaDOS that light up, and behind the pumpkin, we had a little audio box playing sound bits from the game. Oh yeah, and there's a crow there to torment and frighten GLaDOS. woo.

This was technically entered in our workplace pumpkin carving contest thingy that we hold each year. This date specifically - Oct 31st - is our GM date, so everyone is busy and exhausted and burned out. Thanks to this, there were only 3 pumpkins even entered. lol. Which means that it's a guaranteed win because there are prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. I believe the prize is a gift card for the sony style store where we get our employee discounts. Still, it was fun.

How did you do the Wheatly's light? please I need it for my cosplay
Athey Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
It was just one of those big Outdoor Security Flood light bulbs that we sprayed very lightly with blue spray paint. A single light pass, so it wasn't opaque enough to block the light. And while it was still wet, we drew in the 'cracks' with a tooth pick.

Thank you could I ask another thing off of you please, where did you buy it from?
Athey Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Either Home Depot or Walmart. Don't remember which, specifically, we got the light from, but I know both places have them, and we went to both when getting the supplies to make the pumpkin.

well er I don't have walmart or a Home depot because I'm British and we do not have them, I will look online though if you could give me the make and model please

Er - no clue on the make or model - tossed out the pumpkin last November, including the bits that went with it.
Just google 'flood light bulb' and you'll find dozens of options.

Seriously, any store that sells lightbulbs will probably have them. A home improvement store, or some place that sells security lights or garden lights, etc. They're extremely standard fare.

Hopefully one of the judges will have played Portal 2 or they'll be thinking it's surrealist art or something :)

lol - the judges for my work contest, or the DA pumpkin contest? heh - I'm not expecting anything to come from the DA pumpkin carving contest as far as this thing is concerned. As for the contest at work, it won 3rd place, as expected. And it's judged by my co-workers (at Sony), and there isn't a single one there that doesn't know what Portal is.

This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here: huge success.
