"It seemed to be a sort of monster, or symbol representing a monster, of a form which only a diseased fancy could conceive. 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."

   Call of Cthulhu
   H. P. Lovecraft

Great Cthulhu has awakened from his slumbers in R'lyeh, and he does not look pleased. This manifestation of the hideous alien monster has wings and tentacles and webbed appendages. We have been experimenting with making cthulhu in a variety of loathesome fabrics. He can look any way he wants, right? He is an 18 inch tall doll with wired tentacles and wings for posability. Made with polyfill stuffing and various synthetic fabrics. The price varies from $180 up to $240 or so because some of the most wonderfully loathesome fabrics are extremely difficult to work with.

"Cthulhu"???? How the heck do you pronounce that? Well, humans aren't really supposed to be able to pronounce it. Cthulhu and many other hideous alien entities originated in the fantasy writings of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, a literary giant of pulp fiction and a sadly obscure character in the history of American letters. In one of his letters, Lovecraft said, "The best approximation one can make is to grunt, bark, or cough the imperfectly formed syllables Cluh-Luh with the tip of the tongue firmly affixed to the roof of the mouth. That is, if one is a human being. Directions for other entities are naturally different." Lovecraft scholars tend to say something like "Cloo-loo". Chaosium, makers of the "Call of Cthulhu" game suggest "kuh-THOOL-hoo".

If you still have any sanity left after looking at these pictures of Cthulhu, you might want to visit a few sites where you can learn a great deal more about the big guy, and about the works of H. P. Lovecraft. Probably the best place to start would be at the H. P. Lovecraft Archive.

Miskatonic University has a beautiful web site. For a rather different sort of Cthulhu story see the Tales of the Plush Cthulh. The plush cthulhu of these tales is made by the Toy Vault, and is rather more cute and cuddly than hideous and loathely.

Stuffe & Nonsense Stuffemal plush dolls and animal character figures are original soft sculpture designs, individually hand crafted in California by the Stuffe Staff. Due to medical issues and other priorities we no longer make plush toys and have left the web images live just for reference. If you already have one of our creations, we hope you treasure it. Sorry, but we do not know of anyone doing similar work.

Construction and material details vary depending on our design goals for the character involved and the materials on hand. The plush figures are constructed of mohair, wool, alpaca or high-quality synthetic faux fur. Clothing and costume are also hand-made by Stuffe & Nonsense; jewelry and props are from diverse sources. Stuffe & Nonsense Stuffemals often use glass eyes or small parts and are not suitable for young children.
