Spider Cocoon Victim
Item went really well with the rest of my "spider" decorations. It was easy to put up although you have to be aware of the multiple attachment points it needs to hang correctly
I put mine outside in a tree attaching it to multiple branches., Only drawback of that was that it was very tedious picking the leaves out of the web after Halloween was over. I may opt to put it indoors next year. Overall, it was a fun decoration and my grandkids said it had "my hair"!
Judging from the construction, I anticipate using it many years.

This prop was a lot bigger than I expected it to be. It was a lot better quality than a lot of the spider web props out there and it was easy to put up and take down. Overall, I was much happier with it than I expected. It was a big hit at the adult Halloween party. I purchased a giant spider separately and put hung it next to the web victim. The attached picture is obviously before it got dark, but I wanted to show it so you can see how nice it is.

Not The Quality I Expected
I was very impressed with my purchase last year of the Hanging Cocoon Mummy. This Spider Cocoon Victim, unfortunately, suffers from all of the problems and offers few of the enticements of the Hanging Mummy version.
Firstly, the product is flimsy and difficult to handle without damaging. It comes with instructions that say to hang each string in alphabetical order, but there are no letters nor is there a diagram.
The top half of the "victim" is reasonably realistic, with a skull and bony hands protruding slightly from the webbing. The bottom half, however, looks cheap and stupid, like someone filled nylons with a bit of stuffing instead of dessicated feet. For the price, I would have expected much more attention to detail.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend this product at the current price. Maybe $10 cheaper and I would have been pretty satisfied. I will not be returning it, since the overall effect is sufficient for my decorating needs, but I would recommend getting the Hanging Mummy product instead of this.
