    I visited this website several times in doing the research for my costume and found a lot of helpful info here so I thought I'd share the finished project. I know the color is not realistic, but I tried to be fairly accurate with everything else.

    That rules... I looked for an octo costume but only found cheesy ones.

    Thanks all!

    Yeah, I'm a big believer in making your own costume but was surprised by how many people thought it was store-bought... really? where do they think you can find a giant squid costume? Everything Octopus or Squid that I saw commercially available seemed to be cutesy and designed for infants or toddlers.
