This is one of my instructables that I am entering in to the Halloween contest. While not your typical Halloween decoration, it really depends on where you are located. Here in Arizona we keep a look out for them. Scorpions are one of those creepy crawly little things that you have to keep your eye our for. Just as soon as your aren't looking they crawl in your shoe and guess what happens when you put your shoe on.
The Acrylic Scorpion is a spin off idea of Kiteman's 4 am Glass Robot
It didn't take me but a couple of seconds to really decide I wanted to make a project like this. This is my first project that I actually made of someone else's instructable, or rather a very similar spin off idea. I actaully ended up making 2 and they were both fun to make. The second one took me about 40 minutes to make. The first one took about an hour.
I was going to use a clear stretchy plastic line that ran through the body and the beads like kitemans robot. But it was just to darn hard and the parts did not cooperate and stay in place. So unfortunately my scorpions tail does not snap like I had planned. Oh well though, I think it came out looking rather cool.
I hope you like what you see and a big thanks to Kiteman
for the idea.
I worked harder on the video than I did the scorpion, I need a really nice and easy to use movie maker because mine just isn't doing the job. Sorry about the poor quality. Watch the video to the end though you may get a laugh out of it.
Oh one more thing my scorpion only has 6 legs where real scorpions have 8. It just didn't look right when I tried to add one more set, so a 6 legged scorpion is what you get. :)
