The range of her spider-powers are unrevealed, but she possibly has strength comparable to Spider-Man (Class 10 at least) and the ability to cling to walls. Arachne has the upper body of a woman but the hindquarters of a giant spider.

History: (Greek and Roman Mythology) - Arachne was a young weaver from Colophon in Ancient Lydia, now part of modern Turkey. She was so skilled in creating tapestries that she dared to compare herself to Athena, the Olympian goddess of crafts. Appearing on Earth as an old woman, Athena warned Arachne of the dangers of presumption, but when Arachne scorned this advice, Athena revealed her true form as a goddess and challenged her to a contest. Athena placed her spindle on a hill and weaved a brocade showing the creation of the universe and the legends of the arrogance of mortal beings punished by the gods. Arachne retaliated by weaving a tapestry that displayed the scandals within the Olympians themselves. Angered that Arachne's gifts were equal to her own, Athena flew into a rage and ripped the tapestry to shreds. Unable to handle the punishment, Arachne took her own life but seeing pity in her, Athena turned her into a spider to weave webs for eternity.

Using a Tarantula Base, I attached WWA LADY wrestlers body and sculpted and sanded the Base to connect them fully.. Accessories & Armors came from cheap fancy earrings repainted and other household stuff. Hair were made some rubber material used in hair ponies..Repained her.

I have chopped the hind leds of the tarantula into 3 and inserted wires in between the joints so it will be articulated and can strike a pose..

Hope you liked her
