It was my birthday this week and I’m sure you’ll agree that I received the most curious and wonderful thing – a miniature, hand-crafted GLaDOS model FOR MY HAIR! This is awesome for a variety of reasons:
Firstly, I always wear shit in my hair, like every day. Normally it’s flowers, but I have an array of hair accessories that I like to sport from time to time. This collection can only be improved by additional geekery. Secondly, it’s crazy detailed. It has little pipes and panels and logos etc, which are all amazing and adorable. Thirdly, someone spent a long time making this especially for me, which is freakin’ cool.
Anyway, the mad model skillz come from the hands of the fabulous Luke Walker. He does bitchin’ illustrations too, so go check out his Tumblr. If you think you want something crafted/drawn/imagined too, drop him an email (lukejasonwalkergmailcom) and he may well hook you up.
Hey guys, did I mention I have a tiny, awesome GLaDOS accessory?! Who wouldn’t want a passive-aggressive, corrupt, murderous robot in their hair, right? Check her out…
EDIT: With all the attention this post has been getting I thought I’d email Gabe Newell about little GLaDOS on the off chance that he’d care, and he did actually email me back! The official Valve verdict? “Pretty awesome“. I don’t really think I could have asked for better. Huzzah!
EDIT 2: It gets better! Valve sent me stuff!
Do feel free to share the photos by the way, but please don’t remove the credit, as that would do Mr Walker no justice at all. And that’s just not cricket.Like our waffle? Follow us on those new-fangled social media-thingers Facebook and Twitter for more.
