Required Reading

Cosplay is one of our bigger passions here at ComiConverse.  Recently, we did an amazing feature on How To Make An Apocalypse that was a huge hit.

So, when we saw this latest cosplay colossus we just had to share it with you.

Brace yourselves for a giant spider cosplay that will make you want to sleep with an elvish blade next to your bed.


We give you – The Arachnobot!


Arachnobot was the brainchild of Engineer and Artistic Director Tim Davies, a creative genius who works with some of London’s biggest theatre companies.

According to Tim’s website, his giant spider cosplay is a “unique puppet that combines a giant inflatable skin with a complex cable skeleton which controls eight independently articulated legs. The mechanism enables precise, lifelike movements controlled by a single puppeteer.”

Like something from the depths of Mordor, this cosplay is certainly one for the record books. An amazing bit of puppetry that made us smile and cringe all at the same time.
