R.I.P.

Spider.

Normally that is the way I like my spiders. But in this case, although I was not really fond of this guy, I was hoping to salvage the legs. :(

We had a big hiccup putting the stuff away last year and it looks like this is a casualty from that day.

Not to worry, we are working away on new spider....I do believe this is will be the 4th version of the spider. Fourth time's a charm, right :)

Of course about 10 pm on Sunday night, Toph (the other Chris) comes up with a new perspective on the spider which is very cool and completely changes the way we build the mechanical part.

If it works the way we envision, this will be a great prop :) I am even thinking of paying tribute to the Vincent Price version of the fly.....we will see what happens.

But with all new designs this close to the season, I try not to get my hopes up that it will actually be working in October.

It is not the end of the world, as you all should know by now, I am not that fond of spiders anyway :D
