Spinning Spider Web Victim
We started this build with a few materials purchased locally. We used 3M Super 77 spray on adhesive, clear Scotch brand packaging tape, Glad Clingwrap plastic wrap, and part of a bag of stretchy spider web.
We used a Chauvet 5 RPM mirror ball motor that we purchased from CheapDJLights.com to spin the victim.
Here's our victim. He started life as a simple blow molded skelly (a.k.a. a blucky) that we purchased at Big Lots for $9. We hung it from a stand so we could easily spin it around as we worked on it.
Next we took the packaging tape and gave him a pose while securing all the joints.
Next we took the plastic wrap and covered the entire body. This gave us a nice structured base for gluing and it provided a shiny shell behind the webbing.
Next we sprayed the plastic warp with the adhesive and began to add the webbing. We made sure the webbing was really stretched out before trying to apply it to the body. We did several layers of webbing while re-spraying the adhesive as needed. Pictured is the final product.
Here is a flash picture of the victim behind the large web on Halloween night 2005. We attached the victim to the 5 RMP mirror ball motor mounted above the web.
An here is a time exposure photo of the victim spinning the same night. We hope this simple prop encourages you to create a spider scene for your haunt next Halloween.
