So, I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out what to do with her hair. Ive got a pretty long white wig and I'm not sure what direction I should take it style wise to best represent a Victorian era GLADoS. Help! Thanks!

Hmmm...I'd probably go with something that doesn't have a real windswept look; GLaDOS just seems to me to be the type to be more refined and all.

This site has 30 different Victorian or Victorian-inspired hairstyles. These are the two I think might work for GLaDOS:
Plain Victorian Style: simple and refined
Stunning Woman: not so simple, but the braids in the back kind of made me think of cords and wires.

To me, GLADoS is really sleek so I feel like it shouldn't have curls (which was big in the Victorian era).

Maybe this: http://static.lockerz.com/decalz/medium/image001345173538074vjrxbj.jpeg

Wow, thank you! I definitely agree that it should be very sleek and smooth looking. I do think that I want to go the route of lots of braids, maybe intertwined, and MAYBE a few very small curls in the back to give the idea of cords and wires. The pictures were VERY helpful :D
I'm so nervous and excited to start on this wig haha
