Cthulhu Fhtagn! Stanislaus Edition

From artist Justinian Stanislaus comes this absolutely fabulous Cthulhu statuette. The adorable color scheme and playfulness of the piece is enough to make me giggle like a schoolgirl in delight. Far too many artists fail to grasp the inherent sense of fun and frivolity in Lovecraft's works.










It's cute! It's pink! It has purple flowers! It's the kind of thing you'll only see here once a year. Happy April Fools Day.

Is this posting an April Fools joke? Coming from you?! Cute and great pink/purple color scheme? Nice try.

@ affliction

A joke? Nay, sir. I couldn't be more serious. I don't think anyone would disagree that this is the most horrific Cthulhu idol I've ever posted.

This is the point at which we list "Hello Cthulhu", and "The Adventures of Lil Cthulhu", right?

You've already got Fran├žois Launet's "Unspeakable Vault (of Doom)" in your sidebar, and that's just cute as the dickens....

I have always believed that all those that embrace "Cute Cthulhu" exhibit true madness.

You totally got me for like a full 15 seconds. I was like wtf???

You had me going, too. On the other hand, considering that HPL was a bit homophobic, maybe he would have considered this to be the most horrifying manifestion imaginable.

"The most horrifying manifestion imaginable"?

Well, "Hello Cthulhu" has pretty colored ribbons tied in bows on his tentacles.

That has to count for something.

Add those to this sculpture, and then we'll have something truly mind-melting.
