Make what one will of the Cranefly pattern, but I think I see distinct possibilities for using Horsehair (Black) for the Legs of that critter.
Here's a basic video, but I am going to try it making Horsehair Legs.
I get my Horsehair usually, by buying "Foxtail" style brushes off of the
Internet in real Horsehair. Today, many are synthetic, but the real
Horsehair is still used. The hairs are more than long enough to do the legs.
