Daughter and I are going to O-Com-icon in Omaha next weekend (and to visit my Dad).

Doing a "quickie" build of Wheatley from Portal 2 to (hopefully) have my Dad carry around -he's not the type to cosplay.

Covered an old basketball in duct tape to make my preliminary sketches (oops, finger)

Pieces cut and removed from basketball (and it even survived the process)

Paper templates for inner sphere cut and pinned to EVA

this looks really nice already keep it up. also are you just going to use foam or other stuff.

I will use styrene for the interior side rails and PVC pipe for the handles, other than that it should be EVA.

Progress update:

Assembly of inner shell

I'm not happy with the ring around the eye and I think the lens piece is too small. Currently doing a lot of sanding and priming to smooth the surface but I think I'll be redoing those pieces.
