On the first day of Cthulhumas Tor.com gave to me…
Old Ones wrought in effigy.
Effigy #1: Gold and white octopus glass ball
Made by RobotGhost: “Like King Kong trying to climb the side of the Empire State building or Donkey Kong trying to scramble back up on the ledge after my little nephew’s Pikachu annihilates him, this octopus clings on for dear life to this delicate glass ball.”
Effigy #2: Blue octopus glass ball
Also made by RobotGhost: “This guy’s super glittery and blue and very snowed upon. He’s also supposed to be holding an icicle but someone mentioned it looks a little phallic and now I can’t look at it the same way.”
Effigy #3: H.P. Lovecraft mug
Original artwork by Darrell Tutchton, with the inscription “I like coffee exceedingly…” (from an HPL letter to J. Vernon Shea).
