If you try reading by the light of this incredibly awesome Cthulhu lamp, don’t be surprised if the letters start to swim on the page and you hear eldritch whispers in your ear. It was created as a tribute to our favorite tentacular embodiment of ancient evil by Montreal-based artist Karl Dupéré-Richer using “the back of one PVC patio chair, 14 chair feet, one flowerpot, one umbrella base, two bike tires, 30 cans, many pieces of PVC pipes, one acrylic globe lights, some car body parts, a few pieces of garden hoses and about 1,000 devoured human souls.”

The Cthulhu light sculpture is currently on display at the EtOH Brasserie in Montreal, Canada.

American artist and puppeteer Bryan Van Horn created this awesome Puppet Cthulhu marionette. The satin-strung Great Old One was carved from basswood and poplar. His head and torso are hollow and the head contains a battery for red LED eyes. The wings are made of pigskin and strung for menacing flapping motion. The tentacles were strung using monofilament attached to a mobile-like apparatus, which means that they whip around randomly in response to movement made by the rest of the puppet. He also glows in the dark.

Puppet Cthulhu is Bryan’s first completed creation for a larger project currently called “Professor C’thulhu’s Old Tyme Theatre.”

"Think slightly twisted Victorian Marionette Theater. A little music from the netherworld, some dancing, some comedy, some tragedy. Lots and lots of tragedy."

We think that sounds pretty freaking awesome and we’ll be keeping an eye on Bryan Van Horn’s DeviantArt page for further developments.

Cthulhu fhtagn.

It’s Puppet Perfection Day on Geyser of Awesome!

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…

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.

What better way to celebrate Cthulhumas than with H.P. Lovecraft-themed Christmas carols? Click the YouTube link to listen to “I saw mommy kissing Yog-Sothoth”.

This is just one of over 50 awesome Lovecraftian Solstice Carols cleverly composed by The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society.

They’re available here on two CDs and as downloads.

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?

This awesome 8” tall, needle felted wool Baby Cthulhu comes complete with his own appropriately earth-shaped binky. Attention Cthulhu collectors, he’s for sale over on Etsy

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.
