It was around this time last year that Maika, co-editor of the Geyser of Awesome, created her first Cthulhumas tree using a bunch of our Chtulhu tentacles, blue string lights, silver garland, a plush Cthulhu, and just the right amount of eldritch chanting. 

Knowing the Great Old Ones would be expecting a tribute at least as nice as last year’s effort, Maika created a second Cthulhumas tree this year, building on the original design with the addition of more lights, three dozen Finger Tentacles, and some Terrified B-Movie Victims. 

Don’t leave small pets or children alone around this tree. Those frightened little figures won’t satisfy it for long. 

Merry Cthulhumas one and all. May the Elder Gods continue to sleep soundly.

Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn.

The Elder Gods are coming and everyone is doomed!

Time to grab your copy of the Necronomicon and prepare yourself. If you’re especially devoted and really lucky the Elder Gods might just devour you before anyone else.

Now lets all chant together: “Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn.”

A very Lovecraft Christmas!

Faced with the realisation that we suddenly had room enough to put up our own Christmas tree, I was initially at a loss when considering how to decorate it. We have no ornaments and the idea of shopping for them made me drowsy. I can’t remember what first brought to mind the image of a tree covered in tentacles (perhaps it’s best not to ask), but as soon as I envisioned it I couldn’t let go of the idea.

Using an artificial tree, blue string lights, silver garland, one plush Cthulhu (who has been silently biding his time in my home for years), approximately 50 Cthulhu Tentacles, and a little heady chanting (no one wants to upset the Great Old Ones), “A very Lovecraft Christmas” became a reality. I’m rather pleased with the results. Let’s hope the Old Ones are too. I’m beginning to suspect that the tree writhes when I’m not looking.
