This Artist Created Tentacle Leggings And People On Etsy Just Can’t Get Enough

Published 5 months ago

You have to agree that tentacles are kind of creepy – they’re slimy, slippery and just pretty spooky in general. But they’re clearly not creepy enough for women not to want them on their leggings! Daniel Struzyna, a designer based in Radevormwald, Germany, has designed and began selling unique tentacle leggings on ETSY and people just can’t get enough of them.

In an interview with Bored Panda, the artist said he started creating custom tights 3 years ago, inspired by his girlfriend. “I wanted to make a special Christmas gift for her and I knew she really loved mermaids and Ariel. Also, most of the day she wore tights, so I wanted to combine these things and create something very fancy for her,” says Daniel. “At that point, I didn’t think about selling something like that online because the process of making them was very expensive and time-consuming.”

When he posted a picture of her new Mermaid tights, the internet went crazy and the artist decided to start making them for his shop.

People seem to love the tights and are giving them 5-star ratings on the online store.

Daniel says that after a lot of people started buying the mermaid tights, he wanted to create something dedicated to Ursula, the main villain in The Little Mermaid. That’s when he decided to crete the tentacle tights – and they seem to be flying off the shelves. “Unfortunately, I can accept only a relatively small amount of commissions at once because the process of making these tights is very time-consuming and I am not a company and don’t have a team behind me,” says the artist. “I do everything on my own. I can only accept a few orders at a time, but the good part is that I can respond to each customer individually and create a unique piece of art for each of them.”

To create the tights, Daniel uses silicone and nylon and the buyers can choose the colors they like. He creates each pair by hand, meaning all of them are different and unique.

“It blows my mind when I think about how many people want to own my tentacle tights,” says the artist. “Maybe people desire them because they aren’t mass produced. I always try to get the best quality materials I can find and always try to improve myself. I think people can see this. I think the fact that every customer gets a unique individual piece makes them even more interesting.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
