The Spider Character - refined

The Spider character is inspired by mimes that tied in with the mask on the face really well. She needed to have expressive hand gestures and strings of silk around her curled fingers. The idea is that she doesn't have a mouth and can't warn any of her victims what will happen to them. She is torn between constant hunger and the feeling of guilt. The initial idea of her silhouette turning into a skull is still there but not the major selling point. I think she walks a fine line between distorted anatomy that suggest she is a creature and a possible costume worn by the dancer, so in that sense I kept the tone of the rest of the characters and I can see her living in the same universe. The flower petals are a way of attracting victims and the end of her legs contain venom with which she paralyses prey.
