Cthulhu Mask

REbirth MxD, a makeup and design company, brings us this full head Cthulhu mask.  It's a very nice sculpt, but it's the color scheme that really stands out.  For reasons unknown most depictions of Cthulhu are green.  Going against the grain with a vibrant red take is particularly eye catching.

There are some outstanding skin textures there. It’s true that Cthulhu wouldn’t necessarily be green anymore than snakes are green or that octopi are green. The misbelief that all reptiles are green tends to drive the pop culture vision of Cthulhu, presuming that Cthulhu is a reptile or a cephalopod of some type. The nice thing is that the mask is quite reasonably priced and you can work any color scheme you like if you purchase one.

It strikes me that this particular mask seems to draw from several of sources such as
Davy Jones of the film Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Man’s Chest (2006), and
Calibos of Clash of the Titans (1981), with maybe a hint of Pan’s Labyrinth (2006) but that’s just my speculation, not fact. Make of it what you will, the craftsmanship is good and the price is very good.
