Spider Cocoon Victim
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.
