Introduction: Sport a District 9 Tentacle Face
For those of you who are enthusiastic about favela chic sci-fi with a dash of political alegory, here's a quick way to show your solidarity with the District 9 visitors.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
You will need:
- No sense of embarrassment
Step 2: Make the Harness
Wrap a length of yarn around your head, bringing it under your nose. Cut the yarn to this length plus a couple of inches, then tie it in a loop.
The tentacles will dangle from the yarn running under your nose, sort of like a mustache made of awesome.
Step 3: Make the Tentacles
Cut four or five lengths of yarn to about a foot in length, then tie one end around a piece rigatoni. Next, slide five or six more pieces onto the yarn and tie the last one off to make a complete tentacle.
Now, take each tentacle and drape it over the harness with an uneven number of rigatoni on each side (e.g. three on one side and four on the other) and then wrap the strand around the harness a couple of times to that it doesn't pop off while you're jumping up and down in the movie line.
Nobody likes a flying tentacle.
Step 4: Sport Your Tentacle Face
At this point you may be a little shy about wearing your new tentacle mask in public.
Do not be cowed by the opinions of other, less tentacled moviegoers. What you lose in dignity will be more than made up for in laughter.
