“In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming. Dreaming of belly rubs.”
Jenny Fontana created this awesome illustration of Corgi-thulhu. We should all know better than to try petting one of the Ancient Ones, but this little monster is irresistible. Is that just part of his evil plan or is it the only way to prevent him from destroying us all?
Just in case you were in doubt, here’s a sure sign that Cthulhumas is finally on its way!
Last year Amy Rawson (previously featured here) created wonderful Santa Cthulhu and Mrs. Cthulhu figures. This year Amy and Brian East teamed up again to create this awesome Needle Felted Santa Cthulhu, complete with a fireplace containing a miniature flaming city. Santa Cthulhu is ready to place a slimy eel or fish in your stocking or…. you know, devour your soul:
Yes, he’s back! Brian and I managed to revisit our favorite theme again this year, just in time for the holidays. In 2007, Brian and I made our first needle felted Santa Cthulhu around Christmastime. It was so much fun we had to make another in 2008, and again in 2009. In 2010 I branched away a bit and made an epoxy clay Cthulhu Elf on my lonesome, but it just wasn’t the same. The needle felted ones are much more fun. And it’s always better when Brian and I get to work on a project together!
This is our 4th needle felted Santa Cthulhu. He’s got a fireplace, stockings, a plate of cookies, a dead trout and a live moray eel to leave as stocking stuffers … all needle felted from wool. See the Etsy listing or the page in the Thirdroar gallery for more details, meanwhile I’ll just post a heap of photos here!
Cthulhu fhtagn. As fans of all things H.P. Lovecraft-related and tentacles in general, we love this handsome, be-tentacled Howard Phillips Lovecraft Bust created by artist Lee Joyner. The faux bronze bust stands 13” tall and is soon going on sale as a limited edition via Joyner Studio.

Last December we posted about an awesome pair of Santa Cthulhu and Mrs. Cthulhu figures made by Amy L. Rawson. We loved them then and love them now. Even if it seems like Christmas is years away, Cthulhu is always in season.
So we were delighted to learn that Amy has a new, one-of-a-kind creation concerning our favourite evil cosmic entity, made in collaboration with Brian East. Meet Needle Felted Baby Cthulhu! Isn’t he cute? Even the Great Old Ones must’ve been wee once, right?
Intrepid newspaper reporter Tintin has come up against some tough opponents in his time, but facing off against the Great Old Ones might be too much for his incredible mind to handle! Then again, Snowy might provide a much needed advantage. Or at least buy Tintin some time.
This awesome “what if?” scenario comes to you courtesy of graphic designer Muzski, who shows us how cool a collaboration between H.P. Lovecraft and Hergé could have been. Check out the rest of the Tintin X Cthulhu Mythos covers at Muzski’s website, if you dare…
From the Marsh Sewing Co. in Innsmouth comes the Cthulhu Knitted Ski Mask. No humans were used in the creation of these ski masks - plenty were harmed, but none actually used for the masks themselves. Each mask is personally checked by a full-blooded Deep One to ensure the utmost quality.
With your Cthulhu Knitted Ski Mask, you’ll be in impeccable style whereever you go; whether being led to a watery grave by Mother Hydra, or skiing away from the Wendigo in the mountains of Wyoming. With its sleek tentacles and extra-large brow, you are guaranteed to be eaten last by the Shoggoth lurking silently in the basement. It’s Lovecraftian green is sure to disguise you while you wait for your victims in algae-covered lakes . Don’t forget, it’s also required attire for the Church of Starry Wisdom cotillion.
Created by the talented Dianna Jorgensen, the mask is made from synthetic yarn and measures ten inches wide by nineteen inches tall from crown to tentacle tip. One-size-devours-all.
The Kickstarter project was a success, but you can still get in on the tentacular action. A sacrifice made to the Great Old Ones of at least $20 will secure your very own Cthulhu Knitted Ski Mask. May your fellow skiers or robbers have mercy on your soul.
