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!"
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.
"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?
"Straight from the depths of R’lyeh to your breakfast table… enjoy the flavors of the Deep Ones and raise your anxiety with a hearty bowl of CTHULOOPS every morning!"

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.

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!
