The Mute Scientist by biggestsonicfan The Mute Scientist by biggestsonicfan
Anime Expo 2009 was my first REAL cosplay experience. I haven't had a good outfit or good props until this show, and I have to say, I received an unexpected amount of fan reaction! Among the people I knew who were going, I expected an occasional PC gamer might recognize me and say: "Hey! It's Gordon Freeman" and they may or may not have taken my picture.

On average, I recieved about 1,500 pictures a DAY. Yeesh. I'm not complaining mind you, I just never expected it. I'll be at the San Diego ComicCon with the same outfit all four days, with a newly rebuilt Gravity Gun, one which lights up!

This picture was taken by Ace0fClub5 of japanator.com, and I am actually pending permission to post this. At request, this picture may be taken down, but is on Japanator's site here: [link]

The average PC gamer in MY family would probably scream like a fangirl and take several thousand pictures of you WHILE trying to hug you.
(well, maybe. i dunno. depends on the amout of caffine she has in her system.)

awesome Gravity Gun, by the way. how long did it take to make it?

I'll be there again this year with the updated costume. Sadly I will only be Freeman on the first half of Saturday. If you can make it, the Valve gathering is at 2pm in the West Hall on Saturday and a lot of other Valve characters should be there. That's the only time I can guarantee you'll see me as Freeman. Also, I love saying hello to fellow deviant users! =D

The 8-bit Tie is really the icing on the cake.

biggestsonicfan Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2010
Thank you very much! The 8-Bit tie, however, is now retired from the ensamble, and has been replaced with one that looks more like the one Freeman wore in Half-Life 1. That gun was built in two days believe it or not. I've built better ones since then, heh. Check my gallery if you wish to see the more updated costume.

Lovely cosplay, btw.

It's unfortunately the only title I could think of that wasn't "Gordon Freeman Cosplay". I know he's not mute, haha. And thank you for the compliment.

I remember seeing you at ComicCon! I had been searching for other Valve cosplays for about an hour and just when I thought there wouldn't be any I saw you. I would have said something but I was stuck in 'Holy shit it's Gordon Freeman' mode for too long and you left. Either way, it's a great cosplay. I love the phys gun.
