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.

Why settle for simply painting your walls when you could be covering them with fantastic wallpaper pattens like these? These designs were all created by Megan Rose Gedris, also known as Rosalarian, and are currently available via Spoonflower.

If you’re like us and already have tentacles on your fingers, face and arms and put up a betentacled Cthulhumas tree each December, odds are your walls are already pulsating with ancient evil. So papering them with Rosalarian’s awesome I Love Craft (get it?) Cthulhu damask wallpaper seems like an appropriately unnatural next step.

Of course, if the ravenous undead are more your style, she’s also got striking Brain and Zombie Brain designs. There’s a gorgeous Mermaid damask pattern as well. The best part is, because these patterns are up on Spoonflower, they’re also available as fabric and gift wrap.

Where impossible cuteness meets indescribable evil you’ll find this tentacular creature. Her name is Little Maddie and she’s an awesome combination of Cthulhu and My Little Pony designed by Asheville, NC-based company Bigshot Toyworks.

These are concept images for a project currently in development for a series of animation shorts and toys with the tagline “Friendship is madness”. Little Maddie may not be real yet, but we’re already making room for her on our toy shelf.

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!

After gathering round the Cthulhumas tree to sing Lovecraftian Solstice Carols and exchange accursed texts and arcane artifacts, it’s time for the Horrible Holiday Feast. We can’t think of a more disturbingly suitable entrée than Lubbock, Texas-based Rusty Eulberg’s monstrous “Cthurkey”:

According to Eulberg, he and wife Jennifer Robledo “wanted to do something unique for Christmas dinner with friends of ours. Jenny is a big fan of Cthulhu so we went and bought some crab legs and some octopus and bacon and cooked them all separate and slapped them together on a plate, and that was it. The next year I made a Cthicken [see bottom photo]; the same thing using squid instead of octopus and a chicken.”

Eulberg says, “The universal reaction was, ‘Oh my God, I couldn’t eat that.’ But each individual piece was cooked separately; all I did was set them together on the plate. It was delicious. The crab leg was awesome and the bacon added a nice flavor to the turkey.”

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.

BeastWreck created this awesome mashup of Kool-Aid Man and our favourite embodiment of ancient cosmic evil, now available as a tentacular print entitled Cthul-Aid:

"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…
