Cthulhu Bead

This diminutive Cthulhu bead comes to use from Shadow EDC Paracord.  It's supposed to be an adornment for a paracord bracelet, but it's absolutely perfect for repurposing as a traditional Japanese netsuke.

The Ranger's Pack

  Since "The Lord of the Rings" was published the concept of a group of adventures traveling the wilderness has become a well-worn fantasy trope.  Despite that, there's been a surprising dearth of LARP-style events embracing that sort of trekking.  One of my other hobbies is traditional bushcraft camping, so I've always been disappointed there wasn't more interest in that type of thing.

   That's why I was so happy to discover this video from the Middle-Earth Reenactment Society.  They're doing exactly the kind of wilderness wandering I envisioned.  It's really interesting to see their choice of gear from the viewpoint of both practicality and historicity, if that concept can even apply to fantasy-inspired trekking.

Celebrating the Green Holidays

Mavkas Week usually begins after Holy Trinity Sunday. This year it starts today on 13th of June. It is believed that at a time when rye is blooming, the undead beings, spirits of nature, mavkas and mermaids come out of water, theor hidings and walk through forests and fields to tickle to death everyone they meet. This is the period of time when the souls of the dead are among the living.

The gifted Alisa Tochylovska celebrates the Green Holidays and Mavkas Week with a little help from this forest troll.  One can only hope it isn't one of the nature spirits intent on tickling people to death.

Another gruesome creature specimen from Karen Main.  Her technique for creating eyes, including a corneal bulge, is crazy good.

Great Cthulhu

I love seeing artists trying something different, particularly when it comes to new takes on the traditional Cthulhu idol.  This piece from Cthulhu's Aklo goes about as far away as you can from more anthropomorphic depictions of the great old one.

The Angel of Death

Morok Art Studio returns to our pages with this idol of Samael, the Archangel of Death.

Cthulhu Fhtagn! Lurci Edition.

This rough and ready Cthulhu idol comes to us from Ebrahel Lurci.  I really like the course stone finish.  It has the worn, eroded look of something that's only recently been unearthed.
