It’s Freaky Friday, here at Glitter Fantasy! With Halloween fast approaching, you can expect some spooky and spectacularly beautiful things, that may border on the weird, wild or just plain…freaky.
This Friday, we’re all about our eight legged arachnid friends (or foe as you may see it), the spider. Cute and creepy, read on for an enchanting web of spidery splendor.
Legend has it, that seeing a spider is good luck; a symbol of change and a need to enhance, embrace and exert your creative side. I have spider as one of my totems, which is fine with me. I don’t mind them as long as…
A. They’re not lethal.
B. They share my understanding that crawling on me, without my permission, is uncool.
My sister, on the other hand, is terrified of them. I can ruin her whole day just by sharing some creepy spider pic or video on her Facebook page, as a lovely, early morning surprise (last time she spit her coffee across the room).
Love ’em or hate ’em, you have to admire them. If you’ve ever taken the time to sit and watch a spider spin her web, it’s quite relaxing and most awe-inspiring. Fascinating critters, for sure.
From the beautiful to the bizarre , even cute, they’re helpful little buggers, feasting on insects like flies, that are just plain annoying.
It’s also been proven (and I’d like to know who paid for this study) at any given time you are never more than 6-8 feet away from one.
(Bet you’re checking out your surroundings, now!)
Even though I like spiders and will generally try just about anything once, spider infused vodka is one I might have to pass on.
If I didn’t think she’d very possibility kill me, I’d make my sister, Beverly, a nice, relaxing drink with this and after a few sips, show her the bottle and record the reaction. Christmas card material, right there!
A White Spider Cocktail might be more fitting (without the spider vodka, please), but A Spider’s Kiss, in the cool glass shown above or with a few plastic spiders floating in it, frozen in ice cubes to float in it, or just dangling from the rim would be a delightful All Hallows Eve treat.
Chocolate Chip Cookies? Yes, thanks! But, this super easy hack to make the chips into eight legged little illusions would be a great way to get blackmail material or YouTube footage. Cute, spider web pretzel snacks would be fun for the kiddos, while Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Cupcakes with Spider Web Frosting might be a little more adult chic, without inspiring utter terror and heart attacks.
And, spider filled soap is just the thing for a dimly lit guest bathroom.
Even jewelry can be gorgeous, and feature our fearsome little friends.
This is perhaps one of the most awesome, awkward and downright freaky things I’ve seen in at least the last six months.
The Spider Dress is a real thing. Developed by folks at Intel, it’s designed to monitor the body’s reaction to surroundings and “activate” if it senses your personal space is being invaded. The “legs” around the collar jut out, simulating an attack on would be “close talkers” and those people behind you in line at the grocery store who seem to think being right up your ass will somehow make the line move faster.
I don’t make this stuff up.
Enjoy your freaky Friday, my friends! If you have a case of the creepy crawlers now, my job here is done.
