Making Tentacles

Allen Hopps returns with another video tutorial, this time focusing on creating animated tentacles. His redneck engineering, and I mean that as a high compliment, is of obvious special interest to Lovecraftian live action gamers

You could say "his budget-conscious jury-rigged engineering". That's not insulting and you don't have to defend it.

I can see this being adapted into tails for creature costumes as well as tentacles.

Three things that came to me while watching this:

1. Use a center-finder and sharpie to mark the four 90º intervals on the lip of the cup.

2. You could use a hole punch to put the holes in the lips of the single cups faster if you were in a hurry.

3. The small cups with painted pantyhose would make decent costume fabric covered hoses for 1920's era gasmasks.
