I too am going to be attempting to make a Mercer costume with the claws. I knew about the cardboard, but not the superglu, so thanks for that tip. I basically was going to use wire framing for the skeleton of my arm, then cardboard for the base, then I was going to paper mache it to give it more strength. Still trying to figure out how to make the tentacle like things (was thinking foam paint) but then some of the strands are extending off his arms. Then there's also the trouble of making the piece go over my elbow and being able to bend. (Is that where the superglu comes in handy?)
