It really looks like the fellas who do Fantasy and Dungeons have stumbled on the perfect formulas for the SF fleshy creature in The Thing (1982, 2011). And they make it look soooo easy too!

Well, in case you want to give it a shot, I just came across these vids on YouTube:

Needless to say, I'm going to have to try it too. :)

QUESTIONS:
Have you guys made your own versions? If so, got photos? Tips?

Thanks

And if one happens to have a miscast or a duplicate figure we aren't too attached to … just add some of those fleshy tentacle bits to it:

That's from the 2011 "prequel".

Whoa, that looks awesome!

What material(s) did you use?

I might need to do this to a couple of seated HO plastic figures I bought a while back. :)

I guess I never realized how easy it would be to make all the weird fleshy web-like extensions either:
