I actually consider this more of a prop than a costume b/c of the way I use it. What I do is find a "V" shaped path in the maze, put a haybail at the bottom of the V to sit on (at first I used a 5gal. bucket but found it to be too uncomfortable , think princess and the pea, plus it was too easy to knock over). I also wear real-tree overalls and shirt and at night you can't even see my legs. The spider is oriented at a kinda 45 degree angle when I wear it and it looks like it is hanging by it's legs from the corn. Since it's so big it just looks like a static prop. Patrons come by on a path and stop to look at it and thinking it's static will usually walk closer to check it out. At just the right moment(I call it the "sweet spot") I jump up and grab at the people w/ the front legs(the other ones bounce around on their own) and hiss. I can have grown men rolling in the dirt trying to get away. Too funny.

This prop too is in need of serious re-working. I def plan on doing it this summer and may even try to do a how-to if any are interested.

I'm not sure how to make the pics I have bigger but will try.

S'not heavy at all, just kinda bulkey. It's made form 2 hoola-hoops, chickenwire, weed barrier cloth, pvc, pool noodles, and its mounted on one of those backpacks that you carry babies in.(don't know what the exact name for them are) Man, I'm getting real jazzed to re-work it and take it up a leval.
