Tentacles

Posted in Custom Workstation

Does anyone know of any flexible tentacles that are roughly 1.375(1 + 3/8 ) inches (3.5 cm) in diameter at the base(thicker end)?

And I mean the kind that are smooth on one side and sectioned on the other side(Like Shuma Gorath)

Thats what I would try.. if you need it to be thicker at one end then dip that end more..

Never would have thought of that, especially since I didn't know Independance Day had toys.

But, after Looking at them, they won't work, because I need them to be thick at one end and thin at the other, not same size throughout.

Has anyone tried plastidip/grip dip/etc. on anything like Blackheart tails?

could you use the tutorial about making tendrils and instead of tendrils make tentacles? I am thinking of trying that shortly myself for a squid headed figure.

Yeah, I have a Blackheart as well, but his tail isn't large enough.

Although I might have to go smaller and use Blackheart tails, if I can't find anything else.

Yeah, I've seen Jin's one, but I don't really like the look of those tentacles, also I think what I'm making would need larger tentacles.


I thought about something like that, but I wasn't sure how they look or if they would be the right size, I'll have to look into them.

Blackheart tails? Seems like everyone has a Blackheart just sitting there for fodder or wholesale trade, ask around for the figure or tails. They are poseable I might add.

That sounds like a fetish waiting to be Rule 34'd

I does sound a bit like that but you know the toy snakes that you can get at a joke shop, use one of them.

So no one has any ideas?

If it'll help me find results, they can be any sort of tentacles, so long as they are rougly 1.35 inches in diameter at the thicker end.

Also, flexible dragon/lizard/other tails may be similar to what I'm looking for

What about that thing that comes with Hulk Classics War Hulk?

Is it flexible, how long is it, what is it's diameter at the thick end?
