I must admit, the only spider that I like is named Peter Parker. Other than that, they can all end up on the bottom of my shoe. Despite my thoughts on the eight-legged critters, this cluster honors all of the innovations which the arachnid has inspired.

From tattered spiderweb t-shirts to steampunked spiders, check out all of the spider-inspired finds below.

Implications - These creepy crawlers aren't for everyone, but you might change your mind after viewing a few of these unique critters. Even for the meanest eight-legged ones, you should at least read up on them so that you know what you could be potentially up against. Either way, there's a good chance that you won't be able to turn your head away from some of these spiders.
