Looking to buy or make a fighting octopus kite

I'm looking to buy or make an octopus kite, in the stunt/fighting style, like my wife had as a kid in the late 1980s to early 1990s, but haven't had any luck finding such a kite online.
This type (Opie)

is common online, but lacks the stunt or fighting features. It had the octopus look (rounded top, streamers on the bottom, octopus face), and was somehow menacing. She can't specifically describe it as I think it's been so long that her memory of the details is hazy.
If there are no decent options to purchase, I could make such a kite with my wife, but I don't know how to best go about making such a kite. Could you point out a good template to make a fighting kite that I could make look like an angry octopus? Thanks!
