Step 2: Print Templates II - Tentacles

Again, print these 3 images and cut-trace them onto cardboard. You do not need duplicates for the backs of these. HOWEVER you DO need two pairs of each tentacle so that you have a set for the left and right sides, each. So this makes you 6 pieces, following? Now you are probably wondering "why only 6? why not 8? octopodes have 8, right!?!?!" Yes. To make the last (2) tentacles I just inverted the very top tentacle (labelled in pictures) and made an additional 2 of that piece, bringing us to 8 tentacles total.

If that confused you, just look at the final mask picture and then come back to here. It should make sense... eventually?
<p>very nice and creative post. thank you very much for sharing, i was very helpful to me,</p>
Amazing thanks for sharing this, it's going to be part of a pair costume I'll upload some photos in December xxxx
Please do!
I love this mask---I may have to find time to make this mask as I want this mask!!!! Fantastic.
I agree! I have made several since making the first. If time is a concern, you could always have the most complicated piece (the mask) laser cut through a service like ponoko. It wouldn't cost much do cut cardboard / cardstock / whatever you want it cut out of. I include all the image files below, but I have been meaning to update this ible with the SVG files for printing for anyone who wants them. I will post them later tonight when I get home. I would still recommend hand cutting the others since they are a lot easier and can't justify the cost of laser cutting.
