Yes, he’s back! Brian and I managed to revisit our favorite theme again this year, just in time for the holidays. In 2007, Brian and I made our first needle felted Santa Cthulhu around Christmastime. It was so much fun we had to make another in 2008, and again in 2009. In 2010 I branched away a bit and made an epoxy clay Cthulhu Elf on my lonesome, but it just wasn’t the same. The needle felted ones are much more fun. And it’s always better when Brian and I get to work on a project together!
This is our 4th needle felted Santa Cthulhu. He’s got a fireplace, stockings, a plate of cookies, a dead trout and a live moray eel to leave as stocking stuffers … all needle felted from wool. See the Etsy listing or the page in the Thirdroar gallery for more details, meanwhile I’ll just post a heap of photos here!
Head over to Amy’s Etsy shop to get yourself a one-of-a-kind felted depiction of our favourite cosmic entity taking a break from lurking in R’lyeh to take over Santa’s duties.
HP Lovecraft - The Colour out of Space. The Farmer’s Wife Nabby is taken by the illness that the Colour brings and goes mad.
Nabby doll - LaDoll Paperclay, elastic, acrylic paint, printed cottonfabric, silky kankelon hair falls. She stands on her own and is roughly 40cm high. She’s posable, though her bones are fused together in her wrist for effect.
Research included looking at pompei victims, radiation sickness victims, and holocaust survivors.
The whole doll took me 4 days. At this stage, my doll-making is built-in, like second nature. I’ll have my clay and water out next to my teapot and biscuits watching tv shows - total bliss. ^^
