Cthulhu Party

So, as part of my Quest to Become More Interesting, I have started reaching out to people I might not otherwise. This is not due to my dislike of people, simply my laziness. You may remember Sarah, of the long red hair from the Cathedral of Junk benefit. She’s on the left in that second picture.

Sarah and her boyfriend, Travis, are intensely interesting, and unabashedly nerdtastic in ways I can only aspire to be. For Travis’ birthday, Sarah crafted a super awesome Cthulhu party. “What the sweet crap is Cthulhu?” You’re probably thinking, because you have no idea how to say “Cthulhu” out loud. It’s generally pronounced kah-THOO-loo, and he’s a monster written about by H.P. Lovecraft. I generally describe him as being similar to the Cracken, and fortunately wikipedia has a great article about him.

I will only post a couple pictures, as this was all Sarah’s doing, and I don’t want to take too much credit.

The mask there gives you an idea what Cthulhu looks like. The deviled eggs, I mean Cthulhued eggs, had some wasabi in the mix to make them green, and give them a tasty kick!

This was my favorite part. Sarah hand-made tentacles and hung them from the walls and ceiling. I am so jealous I didn’t think of this first, and I’m totally going to adapt this to my own evil uses somehow.

All the guests also dressed up in 1920’s style clothes, which was awesome! We were all looking sharp, and spoke in our own nerd language. I had such a blast, and I am totally going for themes for all our parties from now on. I tip my hat to Sarah, and her creative genius. If I get ahold of one of the pictures of all of us dressed up I’ll post it later. Clever Chick, out.
