Hey

Any help would be appreciated.
Right so, I created a character for an animation, a mermaid with 4 tentacles as hair. Ive tried a couple of ways to rig them, an ik spline with clusters, but I couldnt quite get the bends where I wanted them. Then I tried an FK with Set driven keys. that works ok, except that I cant move it around like with the clusters.

Id really like to be able to drape the tentacles over her shoulders and make them able to quite snake like at times.

Ive seen some rigs, Like the octipodi (http://www.oktapodi.com/makingof/) one, thats amazing, Id love to do something like that. I cant find anything on the net.
