Termite Fairy

Tóbal brings us this specimen of Pseudofata lignatermes, the rare termite fairy. I love seeing naturalists collect fae.  Mainly because they're vicious, nasty animals in dire need of extermination.

A Mailbox Full of Mayhem

A new month, a new Parcel of Terror from Cryptocurium.  Jason McKittrick's latest offering features a plaque inspired by Lovecraft's "The Colour Out of Space", along with the goodies inspired by "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "The Amityville Horror", "The Shining", the classic Universal Werewolf, and traditional vampire hunting kits.  For $35 shipped it's an absolute steal.

Off to School

One of the attractions of Vault living is the emphasis on a quality education.  The Trepanist brings us this collection of skill books from the "Fallout" series, along with a standard issue Vault-Tec bookbag.

These props look deceptively simple, but they're actually custom printed and bound books.  The majority of prop books are created using new artwork glued to an existing cover.  That's an insanely difficult process to pull off convincingly.  The thing that really stands out about these particular examples is the full color roll along the edges of the cover.  It seems like a minor detail, but it's almost impossible to do convincingly when re-covering a book by hand.

Cthulhu Tablet

Russian artist Praskovia Vlasova brings us this very nice mounted Cthulhu tablet.  I love discovering Mythos projects from around the world, but get frustrated by how hard they can be to find because of the language barrier.

I Bear the Mark of the King

Jeweler Whelen35 brings us a slab-style pendant bearing the Yellow Sign. This will come in handy when the stars are finally right and the King in Yellow walks the earth.
