The days have grown cold and short, Lovecraftian Solstice Carols can be heard on the wind, and in the Portland, OR home of Maika, co-editor of the Geyser of Awesome, the spot on the living room floor where betentacled trees have stood in years past has suddenly begun to darken and roil. Cthulhumas approaches and it’s time to pay tribute.
Dread Cthulhu still waits dreaming, but this year the Cthulhumas tree awoke. Its eyes are a pair of Giant Christmas Tree Googly Eyes that were altered with spray paint, paint pens, and markers. The wings were made using wire hangers, floral wire and tape, green cellophane, and the helpful guidance of a wing-making Instructable created by mercifulmaenad. Small sacrifices of blood, skin, and cherished cloth were made in the process and eldritch incantations were murmured.
Now the tree watches, unblinking. Sometime, just of the corner of an eye, the blue lights flicker and its tentacles appear to writhe. In the middle of the night the soft rustling of cellophane wings has been heard. The tree never sleeps.
Merry Cthulhumas friends. May the deep dark sleep of the Great Old Ones continue undisturbed.

Artists Amy L. Rawson and Brian East (previously featured here) have returned with an all new awesome and eldritch Santa Cthulhu creation. We’ve loved the previous incarnations, but this year they’ve outdone themselves my painstakingly crafting an 11” tall needle felted Santa Cthulhu who rides in a gorgeous Oct-Sleigh that’s pulled by the dreaded Shoggoth. Santa Cthulhu travels with a fishnet sack overflowing with writhing tentacular gifts.
Amy and Brian’s Needle Felted Santa Cthulhu with Shoggoth and Octi-Sleigh is a one-of-a-kind creation and is currently available to purchase via Amy’s Etsy shop.

Even monsters of unspeakable ancient evil were cute little babies once. Cassia Harries of Monster Mind Sculpts created this utterly adorable Baby Cthulhu figure. He’s the first piece in her forthcoming Little Monsters Collection.
"He’ll steal your heart and your soul."
While this precious little embodiment of cosmic evil is a one of a kind hand-sculpted figure, Cassia has cast the sculpture in order to create more so that the rest of us may soon purchase a wee baby Great Old One to
worship enjoy at our mortal peril.
Head over to Cassia’s Facebook page to check out more of her handmade creations.
"It’s the Great Old Ones’ favorite beverage, guaranteed to be maddeningly refreshing! Cthulhu himself enjoys kicking back after a hard day’s work in R’lyeh and pouring himself a tall cold glass of Cthul-Aid, and so should you!"
Never before has a sculpture made of LEGO radiated such pure and ancient evil. Carl Merriam, aka Brick Laboratory, created this awesome LEGO Cthulhu build, complete with a wonderfully Lovecraftian title: The Madness from the Sea. It was display at the Bricks by the Bay LEGO convention in Santa Clara, CA.
Check out the use of snake tails as mouth tentacles and dinosaur bodies as hands. You can read more about the creation and see more pictures on the feature article from Tested.com.
Sandy Yoo, an artist based in California, isn’t afraid to tempt fate tantalizing the Great Old Ones by baking a pie bearing the unmistakable likeness of Dread Cthulhu. Eat the pie before it devours your soul.
Then again, perhaps the soul-devouring doesn’t begin until the pie is already in your belly. And if the pie in question is tasty enough, we have to admit it might just be worth the risk. Mmm…pie…

Don’t let his dapper appearance fool you. Even when sharply-dressed Dread Cthulhu is still an ancient creature of unfathomable evil.
If you’re curious how one might go about making a mask such as this, you’re in luck! Ian made a sped-up video of the process for his Zombie Cat Mask.
