I'm sure most of you gamers out there have played at least one of Valve's revolutionary Half Life series. As they've been some incredibly influential games, I decided to create a Gordon Freeman, Half Life's main character, Corky.
Here's how I did it.

Step 1: Supplies


  • 1-2 Champagne Corks
  • Styrofoam
  • Thick aluminium wire
  • Card or thick paper
  • Brown fur or hair
  • Standard steel wire
  • Scissors
  • UHU glue
  • Craft knife
  • Needle nosed pliers
  • Super/Krazy glue
  • Brown, black, and orange Sharpies
  • Styrofoam cutter
  • Hammer
  • Wire cutters or metal cutting scissors
  • Pencil
  • Fine black permanent marker
  • Paintbrush
  • Orange acrylic/poster paint
  • Black and white, or grey paint
  • Orange pen
Also (forgot to include in photos):
  • Hot glue (most other glues will melt styrofoam)
  • Transparent plastic foil (from packaging)
  • Yellow pen

<p>as long as you're doing Half-Life characters, how about Calhoun from Blue Shift?</p>
I have Garry's mod and it's really fun!

Great Job! As a gamer who has played half life I know you nailed it ,or corked it whatever you prefer!
<p>Hahaha, thank you!</p>

Looks more like Adam Savage to me...
Corckon Freeman? Nice!
Mario would be a great choice for your next one.
Mario was my first video game Corky <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Champagne-Cork-Mario/" rel="nofollow">http://www.instructables.com/id/Champagne-Cork-Mario/</a>
you could use mod-podge to smooth down the styrofoam...
Good idea, I could try that for future projects.
This would be a cool school project. Do you think you can do the soldier from tf2.
awesome brings back memories
