ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Ian J. Kahn of Lux Mentis, Antiquarian Booksellers, just received this hand-knit Cthulhu hat from his mother as a surprise gift.
My Mum made me this Cthulhu ski mask a couple of years ago!!
I think you’ll find mine is the best Ma ever!! ;D
which inspired me for this halloween costume:
[cue John Cale tune:] Here comes the ski patrol…
He’s going to scare the kids, they’ll take his lift ticket away.
Cool mom for even knowing Cthulhu
That’s a very cool mom, but I do fear we’re gonna start seeing eldritch crap coming out of the woodwork everywhere (’cause, y’know, that’s what eldritch crap does). Once they do a Lovecraft-themed episode of Glee, it’ll be all over.
Great concept. But the tentacles need to be longer and fewer. In fact, you could probably take a green jester cap, wear it over your face and cut a few eyeholes for the proper effect. But you still gotta hand it to Mom.
That is just so many kinds of awesome.
Alright. Cthulhu is a little overdone, but that is great ALL up and down the town.
PS-Been meaning to get this off my chest for a while, but Google Chrome, stop pretending that you don’t believe that Cthulhu is a word. And teleport.
Last year’s hat was a Klein Bottle hat. Believe it’s all a plot to stay out of “the bad Home”…and working….
I’d never trust anything not made in R’lyeh. I mean seriously what snowboarder wouldn’t.
The pertinent question is: will he perceive this as homage or mockery? The answer would determine when you’re eaten.
Been done before, and better:
several variants over on etsy, as well as one of dr. zoidberg
above person also makes this
Best mom ever. And Chentzilla, I prefer this one.
hey! i’m a mom, and i crochet/knit – AND i know about cthulhu.
just because we’ve given birth and are crafty doesn’t make us totally lame!
You wouldn’t happen that have a manuscript copy of the Necronomicon on hand would you?
Racial humor/Lovecraft mashup:
“Yo momma’s so old, she’s an Elder One.”
I want one!!!!
