Hi guys; here's my octopus costume!



To make, I sewed a belt out of the satin fabric, eight tentacles, and then put them all together. Here's the fabric pre-tentacle:


And the sewn tentacles:


Now the tentacles are attached to the belt, but not yet stuffed or closed:


I stuffed them with plastic bags (because I am a poor college student Smiley) and added wire hanger backbones so I could adjust the legs however I liked.

Yey I was considering a giant squid, I'm glad you did it! Smiley
It wasn't hard to sit down, but I did whack a few people with the tentacles at crowded parties.
