He Asked His Dad For A New Bedroom, What He Got Was Beyond His Wildest Dreams.
It’s very hard to impress teenagers but two parents may have achieved the impossible. Randy Slavey’s son was turning 13 and his parents wanted to mark his entry into teenage years special. The new teen is a huge fan of the video games, Portal and Portal 2. So naturally, he asked for a theme-room for his birthday.
Slavey, who is a photographer and a blogger, wanted to make sure no detail was missed. “My wife and I wanted to make sure it was something worthy of one of Aperture Laboratories’ finest young test subjects,” says Slavey.
The blogger found that paint companies do not have colors labeled after games. He searched online to find the closest hues to make the room as authentic as possible.
The dark lighting gives the feeling of being in space.
The hand-painted circles represent lights that triggers the door to open. Slavey painted 255 of them.
Slavey placed two oval mirrors with lights in the back to create the illusion of a portal.
