I happen to be in love with a lover of all things Cthulhu. This past Christmas I scoured the ends of the earth and the deep depths of the sea for the best Cthulhu merchandise I could get my hands on. Here are some of the treasures I found:
Cthulhu GEEKSOAP: This geektacular soap I actually found last summer at GenCon. I was walking the exhibition hall buying up D20 hair sticks and leather corsets when I stumbled upon the GEEKSOAP booth. I fell in love! I purchased a bar (err, circle?) intending to hide it until the holidays. I think I lasted a day. I was so excited about the soap I had to give it as a spontaneous, unwrapped gift right away!
OMG, this stuff smells FABULOUS! I would have purchased more but I got the last one they had.
Also check out their sister company The Pink Toque. They have handmade Cthulhu hats, mittens, scarves, bath mitts and more.
Miss Monster: Next on my list of favorites are these Cthulhu pillowcases from Miss Monster. I bought a pair to give as a Christmas present (no, I wasn’t able to keep that secret either. I know, I really suck at this.). They are AWESOME!
Being a handmade internet purchase, I was worried they would fade, be of poor quality, etch a stain into my face as I slept, etc. Nope! Wash after wash they continue to look beautiful and are soft (but not nearly as smelly or loud) as a lamb to sleep on. They are on my bed right now, in fact. Yes, I sleep with a mysterious mythical creature in the murky deep. Aren’t. You. Jealous?
Miss Monster has a bunch of other handmade Cthulhu products also– shirts, scarves, patches, hair barrettes, beer mugs, hoodies, etc. You can also find her peddling her tentacled wares on Etsy. It’s without a doubt some of the best stuff I’ve seen. The Great Old Ones would approve.
Necronomicox: These items are by far the favorites on my list. Need to summon the unspeakable? From an orifice? Bring in these big guns from Necronomicox! Introducing the Ghatan ball-gag, Ghatan butt-plug and Mythos dildo!
I’m flirting with an orgasm simply thinking about these products. I don’t own any yet but I’ve been told the Ghatan ball gag is in my future. You’ll be the first to know how I like it! Umm . . . after I figure out how to untie myself. Heeeyyyyy, does anyone sell tentacle inspired bondage rope? *wink*
If you’re a zombie aficionado and a certified sick fuck, check out their highly detailed, super creepy ZOMBI. It seems so realistic, I bet it even smells like rotting flesh! *taking a minute to figure out if that’s a good thing*
Etsy: For other handmade, one-of-a-kind-items, Etsy.com is a great resource. Searching “Cthulhu” in the “handmade” category, I found over 900 results. Search results tend to be hit or miss but I discovered most of the Cthulhu themed hats on Etsy are pretty rad.
Amazon: Even though they aren’t handmade one-of-a-kind items, these are still kind of cool: Cthulhu slippers*, Bobble Head*and the Plush Toy.*
For those of you who aren’t hardcore Lovecraft fanatics but still made it through this post, first of all, I applaud you. Secondly, catch up! Here is The Call of Cthulhu in Under 2 Minutes. Ready? Go!

And this is why I love you Sunny!!! (OK the boobs help too).
Ummm . . . yeah. At least I know how to pronounce it after watching the video.
I’m still waiting for a tentacular Cthulhu vibrator…
