I went to a charity fund raiser for halloween here in Cardiff (UK) (http://www.thesafefoundation.co.uk/) the theme was 'Apocalypso' - most ppl were zombie pirates but i decided to be killer squid/ kracken monster! hope you like it.

The head is made from paper mache, then ive covered it in wadding and fabric- the eyes are felt.
I made 4 tenticles that i sewed onto a top at the neck. The top i made out of the same fabric with some teeth sewn on the front. The tenticles themselves are stuffed with toy stuffing and have actual window suckers on them (which i got from ebay). All the fabric has just been recycled from my craft room.









the last photo was taken on the night by a proffesional (not just me in the living room!)

Thanks for looking  Grin

LOVE. That's wonderful! Were people not trying to stick your suckers to things all night? I only ask because, well, I'd be one of those people.

Amazing costume!
