Cthulhu Bodysuit Will Have You Running in Sheer Terror

by Paul Strauss

It’s amazing how things with tentacles can range from cute, to disgusting to creepy. Cthulhu and his tentacle-face definitely falls into that last bucket.

DIYer AlextheMovieGeek created this incredible hand-built Cthulhu costume this past Halloween. The imposing winged creature would definitely have scared up a huge bucket of candy at every house along the trick-or-treat route. This thing looks like the demented love child of The Creature from the Black Lagoon and Davy Jones from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I think I just threw up a little bit in my mouth thinking about those two getting it on.

Alex created this dark masterpiece by building numerous plaster molds of his body, then hand-sculpting clay over them and pouring latex into the molds. The head was made using an entirely clay sculpted mold over a styrofoam head form. In order to increase his height, Alex built some short stilts to jack himself up too. He managed to make the entire thing for under $300, but his time and effort were clearly the main expense.

Check out the video below for more on the time-consuming and painstaking build process for this incredibly creepy costume:
