Worm Fanart: Skitter

Meet Skitter. 
She can control every single arthropod within half a mile radius, perfectly. 
She can make wasps sting your eyes, spiders crawl into your lungs, and spin webs. 
She can see and hear through the insect eyes, and sense what they touch. 
She breeds black widows, 
She made her costume out of Darwin's bark spider's silk, which is the toughest biological material ever studied, making her somewhat bulletproof. Even when she's not hit in the armor. 

I wasn't quite satisfied with the fan art I've seen of Skitter - none of it displays how terrifying she can be from an objective point of view. 
The skirt and mantle were originally an improvised costume made out of scraps of spider silk, but since it offers an extra layer of protection, it seem she's taken to wearing them into potentially dangerous situations.
Overqall, Im satisfied. Still messy, but I have some interesting things going material-wise. Shoes are just thrown in there, though.

Also: Hey, I'm on time! It's still two and a half hours to midnight!
