household spider identification 

household spiders 

So people joke that the month after Pride is Wrath, but if we're making the Seven Deadly Sins queer, would Fuhrer King Bradley wear it like this or like this or like this?

Astronaut pants are definitely a Look: random strips of velcro everywhere, running over and through and under pockets.

There needs to be a name for this style, and "business utilitarian" just doesn't fly. What would you call it?

Joined a conference call, wore last year's spider head, got called Beto O'Rourke

Does a two-legged sheep walk like an inchworm, or strut like someone in heels and an oversized fur coat?

I propose side-by-side, but if you have an argument the other direction, I'll happily toot it.

Before I head out for the night, dressed in a different costume, here's a status update on the (?) head:

- 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

legs, socks, kind of a selfie 

Here's what a "half skull" looks like, when that "skull" is one half of a jumping-spider head. It's thick paper and masking tape, and that's it.

The full version will have a wire armature inside, and spray foam around the armature for rigidity and damage-resistance.

builders and costumers, how do you interpret embiggened materials? When a small animal has a given texture and you scale the animal up to human size, do you scale the texture up or tile it?

As an example, this spider is about a millimeter long. I'm going to scale the head to 20cm wide. Replicating the texture would use fake fur. To scale the texture up to match the head size, I'd use pipe cleaners and yarn.

Which approach is better?

Well, I guess I'll be wearing this head to this weekend. Shan't be there all weekend, but wave if you're there.
Is it a if it is just bones?
