Figure Tips & Ideas: Easy Tentacle Prop

I got bored and decided to throw together this quick series of pictures. Have you ever wanted a tentacle monster for your desk? I know I do, but I don't want to either look up how to get one or to drop a lot of money on such a figure. In the meantime I used the following tricks to bind my figures.

The following set of photos are:

Quite the predicament caused by a simple pipe cleaner. You can pick these up at pretty easily in the crafts section of general stores. This stuff is pretty easy to come by and also works well in wrapping up your figures. I started using this stuff after having trouble with S.H. Figuarts Momo's vine prop.

The box shows that you can use her vine to tie up the S.H. Figuarts Yami figure. However in my experience Momo's vine is too short and not flexible enough to actually wrap around Yami.

I've tried to pose them like the box for a long time and this is still the best I can do (without trying too hard). In comparison it's really easy to wrap up Yami (on any figure for that matter) with the longer and more malleable pipe cleaner. 

That's the stuff. You can do alot of weird stuff with pipe cleaners. That's all for today. Thanks for dropping by. Hope you got a chuckle and some prop ideas :D
