Here's how I built this 2019's Halloween spider head: https://irradiate.space/skulls/maratus/construction/

Halloween project humor
No, my Halloween costume is not a bat with eyebrows as big as his head.
Nor is it a moth.
Halloween project progress
Awright, it's time to get started. I took last year's Maratus volans head design to Kinko's, and just like last year, had to get staff intervention to print the thing.

- papercraft assembled
- wires inserted
- foam cured (papercraft distorted)
- eyeholes cut
- fur application areas blocked out
- lenses stuck in mail; plexiglas alternates attempted but work needed
- no accessories yet made
- no pedipalp articulation yet decided yet
I make skulls and similar things, primarily using papercraft techniques. Expect gender and fashion introspection here.
