Comedian Patton Oswalt's daughter wanted to be Spider-Girl for Halloween, which is a reasonable request. Being awesome, Oswalt wanted to make her costume extra special (and also rock his own cool costume). So he decided that he wanted to be Marvel supervillian and great Spiderman foe Doctor Octopus.

The only wrench in this great father-daughter costume idea was that Oswalt didn't have a Doc Ock costume at the ready, and he also didn't have enough time to make one. Plus, his daughter was insisting. Dilemma.
