Best Material for extra limbs

Hello!

In some point of insanity tonight I decided that I WILL cosplay at the next blizzcon. (I am an avid wow player, and have always wanted to cosplay as something.)

However,I am new to the cosplay scene and this will be my first real effort into making a costume.

I'm wondering what is the best material to craft extra limbs? Legs specifically. Think spider legs.

Any input is greatly appreciated, after scouring the web not many people cosplay as bugs and I couldn't find any good reference points.

Or you can gather thousands of real spider legs from "Willing" donors.

Or, yeah, some sort of rigid foam with a fine mesh and some strong wire that will hold it's shape.
