It looks real o_o

I need a spider that just sits XD maybe move a few inches or so.

I Have a fear of spiders, but my curiosity pushes it aside when it comes to the big ones XDI

Thank you so much! <333

Yes, these guys are really great as pets, because they dont move, or hide or eat crepy bugs. :giggle:

I love spiders so much and I would love a pet tarantula, but for various reasons I cannot have one. A live one, at least ;;

I cant have a real one either (to many dogs and cats around) so I make these instead! ^^ And I do take commissions if youd be interested some day.

It's mostly the Australian summer heat that means I can't keep one ;; I do have a five-year old house spider though! My precious <3

I had a look through your gallery and spent quarter of an hour squealing in delight at all your marvellous sculptures! I have so many critters I'd love to see in your style :XD:

I have house spiders as well!!! :XD: One is named Bob, because there always need to be a Bob. :lol: 

Woooow, now you make me blush. Really. I dunno what to say even. THANK YOU!!!! You made my day!! <33333 And you also make me super curious as to what kinda critters youve got! :la: :D

Aaaah I'm so happy to have met someone who likes spiders! They're one of my favourite orders and I think over 3,000 have been in my care over the years, with varying degrees of 'how the heck can I keep these things in their enclosure they're like microscopic how can I stop waking up every morning to find 300 baby flower spiders all over my window'. And huntsmen spiders, they're the closest I've got to owning a tarantula!

Oh my you're more than welcome! :hug: I've tried sculpting before, several times, and I just cannot do it so I'm in awe of anyone who manages to make such beautiful sculptures. And finding out you have quite the handicap... call me blown away. Blown away by a hurricane of HOW THE HECK DO YOU DO THAT.

I have plenty because critter creating! I enjoy creating ungulates most, like deer and horses, but I also like reptilian creatures like dragons and lizard, amphibious creatures like salamanders *pokes three metre high killer salamander thing* and griffons as well. Oh, and I'm working on creating a desert-dwelling arachnid based off a camel spider. Because I can't create an entire world without having at least ONE spider! :lol:
