As always I find it necessary to go way over the top with my Halloween costumes, and I found myself asking, "How can I top the Dalek costume of 2010?" And while getting ideas off of the internet, I came across the idea for a Doc Ock costume. What could be cooler than a life size Doc Ock costume?

So, I set about doing it. This is technically my costume from 2011, but I'm sharing it now. Then entire costume took me about 6 weeks to build completely. The total cost ended up being about $50.

Every costume's measurements will be a little bit different obviously, but mine stretched from 7 feet tall to a good 6 feet wide.


This is an entry in the 2012 Epic Costumes Competition, and if you think that this Instructable is awesome, please vote! Thanks!

So, let's get started!
