IM trying to get a tangela cosplay up for otakon 2011. I want it to be full sized so that i appear "as tangela" not someone cosplaying one. so im trying to come up with the best way to create a frame that goes over my head and down to my knees all while not looking like a giant blue testicle. any ideas?

A chicken wire cage might be a good start. Bend it into the shape you want, then cover the whole cage with a dark green/tangela colors fabric and then make the vines/tubes out of the same fabric and fill the vines/tubes stuffing. Attach the vines/tubes. to the base by sewing the vines in various positons crossing them over each other. Where you want the face to be use black mesh material so you can see and white mesh for the eyes. Make sure you leave arm holes and leg holes so you cna move around in it. ^-^
Hope this helps.
