Tentaspy Cosplay by Lithe-Fider Tentaspy Cosplay by Lithe-Fider
A nice full body shot of my tentaspy costume. If you want more details on making of it go here: [link]

I worked like a dog for 3 weeks before Otakon and got this baby done. SO HAPPY. 320 suckers, 8 huge tentacles, almost 100 yards of tulle for stuffing, and airbrushed made-from-scratch webbed gloves and custom made vest. Also Scarecrow fangs and face makeup to complete the monstery-blue-pale look.

I mostly trip on the upturned ends of my 'shoes' (the tentacles on my actual legs) not the tentacles, if anything :D Tho I've had a lot of practice! It's really fun to wear, I love being a mess of tentacles.

Oh how rude! I should say something about the costume. It is Epic! the tentacles are kinda cute looking, I think they should be scarier, but it's a hella of a lot better then I could dream of.

OMG I thought I remembered your tentacles from somewhere! I walked past you at otakon and you immediately caught my eye. If if weren't for the fact that I was scrambling to find my lost sempai, I would have stopped and asked for a hug and a picture, you were just so awesome! XD

As linked, I have most details on my cosplay.com post for it. [link] :)

The suckers were hot melt glued on, it was the fastest option, also hot melt sticks just great to porous fabric so it is strong too, you just gotta hold on the suckers for 10 seconds real tight so it bonds well. They are made with 1/2" high density foam, like the green stuff at Joanns, but white. I got it in NYC cause we don't sell HDF in white. Hope that helps :'3

This inspired me more to work on Tentaspy.

I took the directions from your Cosplay.com, and I'm going to make one like this. But could you tell me how to make your mask? And like, help me with this entire thing step by step? It's okay if you can't. n___n;

I had a totally different idea for this, but then I saw yours and i was like "I HAVE TO DO THIS. THIS WAY." Because of how amazing it is.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING THE BEST TENTASPY I'VE SEEN. ;___; This makes me cry rainbows. If you could help me out, I'd be super greatful.
