The Claws Are The Hardest Part

Doctor Octopus is one of my all-time favorite villains, and his appearance in Spiderman 2 almost had me jumping out of my seat. He was just too cool. I really wish I could get some tentacles like Doc Ock. Apparently, I'm not alone. Some people have tried to make Doc Ock costumes, which I wish I'd thought of doing.

It really just consisted of a long coat, sunglasses, and tentacles. The Kraken made some with tentacles that can hold a cup. It's a pretty good job. But by far, Cockeyed's was better. Not only did it look more authentic, but he built a full-sized Spiderman dummy he could carry around in his claws! Now that's attention to detail.

That is phenomenal! The Kracken costume was an engineering marvel, but didn't look very good in action. Maybe it was the lousy picture taking.
Cockeyed pictures look too cool. Having Spiderman hanging from his claws was a masterful touch.
