Aperture Science was founded during the 1970s, but if its scientists started work on the Handheld Portal Device in 1870, this is what the gun might have looked like. I must say, I’m liking this junkyard look more than the sterile original.
This amazing piece of junk art is the work of deviantART member batman-n-bananas. Just like the maker of the steampunk NERF rifle, batman-n-bananas went with the trusted “attach pretty much anything you can find” method in making the gun.
Some of the items that have been re-purposed include parts from an antique clock, hangers, plumbing parts, a plant pot, various lids, plastic tub, a pocket laser disc, lightbulbs, “metal covering from an old hairbrush” and gallons and gallons of glue.
That dude actually looks like he just escaped from Aperture Science’s labs. Amazing dedication to cosplay. Head to deviantART so you can drool at the high resolution images of the gun. I have a feeling you’ll be hearing from Valve soon, batman-n-bananas. I hope they call you batman-n-bananas when they get in touch.
