12 Days of Cthulhumas: Day 7

On the seventh day of Cthulhumas Tor.com gave to me...
Cuties for a-cuddling,
Silver and jewels a-shining,
A dark, eldritch seal,
Strange aeons past,
Grim tales told,
Yule horror spawned,
And Old Ones wrought in effigy.

Cutie #1: Five Cthulhu plushies, for five winners
“As a charming plush, this cute little monster will be happy to glare evilly at anyone – just for you. Look at that tentacled face – absolutely, other-worldly adorable. Come on; give that widdle, cuddley-wuddley, widdle Cthulhu a kiss. You know you want to. And if you are really nice to this small plush version of Cthulhu, when the real one wakes up…it might not eat you.”

Cutie #2: Cthulhu vinyl decals, “O R'lyeh?” and “Nom
Made by stickerella: These decals measure 9.25“ wide by 6” tall, cut from durable white vinyl.

Cutie #3: Cthulhu Mythos Coloring Book
Made by MonstersDomesticated: “Nine original images of madness, malignity, and the unthinkable, all for you to color as you wish. The spawn of Dread Cthulhu, the abject Yog-Sothoth, the Crawling Chaos, and other unnamables lurk within, waiting for the foolhardy or insane to bring them to life with color.

Mail it anonymously to an enemy, or take it to the madhouse yourself. Study it for the terrible insinuations cleverly hidden within, or use it to try to explain your condition to your captors. Or add it to the unspeakable rites you perform every equinox!

This vile, unique booklet is hand-bound simply with twine. The cover is in full color on nice, sturdy Strathmore linen paper, and the black and white insides are for you to color yourself!

Feel free to color outside the lines.”

The Rules: To get this giveaway, all you need to do is comment (once—duplicates won’t count) on this post. The winner will be selected at random, with four additional winners receiving only the Cthulhu plushie. You have until noon EST on Wednesday, January 6th, to comment here.

For a moment I thought that was a "Cthulhu Mythos COOKBOOK". Now THAT would be interesting.

Most plushies are so soft they overstimulate a part of my brain, giving me a fingernails-on-chalkboard experience that leaves me clawing at my arms. I can't wear velvet or corduroy either.

However, in the case of a Cthulhu plushie it seems incredibly appropriate that touching him would make my skin crawl and my brain scream. (if I win him, he'll probably get parked on a shelf to look at and not touched frequently!)
