It started out so small and innocent

It was just a simple post on my blog that has turned into a nightmare (the good kind.)

Welcome to SpiderFest 2010.

It is even better

in person!

Check out the first spider to arrive for SpiderFEST 2010!  Here is Dorie checking it out to make sure it is not eatable :)  He did mention that the spider has not eaten the whole trip and that I might want to keep it away from the cats....he does look like he is contemplating Dorie for his next meal. :D

Here it is in pieces with very detailed instruction on how to attach the legs.  Something we will do this weekend.

I kinda set him up on the table to give you and idea of how he will look! 

Oh and check out his "death certificate" - what a nice detail.  You haunt people are so amazing.

Thanks Mr. Chicken, we are looking forward to getting this up in the tree and taking pictures.  I will likely take it down until October....but I cannot wait that long to see how cool it is going to look.


  1. Such a kick-ass prop and again, great job, Mr. C!

  2. wonderful work and the death certificate is a very nice added touch

  3. Yeah, that's really sweet.
    Man, this is going to be FUN.

  4. Happy he made it in one piece... at least, as much as he was supposed to

    and for the record, that's his UN-death certificate ;)

    can't wait to see the rest of the spiders!

  5. LOL! Sorry about that. I guess I was just projecting...I like my spiders dead :D Undead just makes it a zombie spider....(shudder)
