Cthulhu


$2.00




In The Call of Cthulhu, H.P. Lovecraft describes Cthulhu as "A monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind." Cthulhu has been described as a mix between a giant human, an octopus and a dragon, and is depicted as being hundreds of meters tall, with human-looking arms and legs and a pair of rudimentary wings on its back. Cthulhu's head is depicted as similar to the entirety of a giant octopus, with an unknown number of tentacles surrounding its supposed mouth. Cthulhu is described as being able to change the shape of its body at will, extending and retracting limbs and tentacles as it sees fit.

“The Thing cannot be described - there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order. A mountain walked or stumbled.

If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.”

*Yes, Howard Phillip Lovecraft was a bit of a misogynist and racist in his younger years. The time period in which he lived doesn't necessarily excuse this, though it does give context to it. We believe that in an historical context (There's really no excuse in modern day, the internet exists: BE WOKE), it's still possible to appreciate the works of someone and their contribution to modern horror while also using some of their less savory personality traits as a teachable moment. That's why we are even mentioning it. ^ With the hope & intention to use our platform to encourage education & inclusivity, 20% of our sales from this product will be donated to Black Lives Matter and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. 10% each, and we will publicly disclose proof of these donations.

We believe in #selfexpressionrevolution, the idea that everyone should be respected and allowed to express themselves regardless of their race, age, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity, disability or style choices. This includes tattoo and piercing acceptance and inclusivity in the workplace. We are tired of being told how we “should” look, of having the beauty industry dissect their body parts, sizes and features.  It is time to embrace and encourage the message that all people are beautiful.
