Warm Fleece Cthulhu Hoodie: Wild, Innovative and Creepy

 You may never pronounce cthulhu right, but wearing this unique hoodie makes that the least of your problems. H. P. Lovecraft introduced this grotesque monster in a short story entitled, The Call of the Cthulhu, which was published back in 1928 in the pulp magazine, Weird Tales. He offered several different pronunciations for this being and his explanation for so many of them was the fact that the human voice could only come so close to alien language.

Be that as it may, tentacles and eyes accompany you wherever you go in this warm-as-toast hoodie made in down-to-earth, Detroit, Michigan. The eyes of others are sure to follow you as well, as tentacles and green skin are not common sights either on apparel or walking down city streets.

Cthulhu hoodies and their fans

Lovecraft's monster has been featured in many pop culture references and the wild, fleece hoodie duplicates enough of the recognizable features to satisfy fans who seek merchandise related to this bizarre- looking creature. (This is reminiscent of the ET phenomenon of more than three decades ago where the face of that adorable and very lost alien could be found on every tee-shirt, note-pad, set of pajamas and lunch-box worn or carried by school-age kids everywhere for years after the classic film was shelved.)

Cosplay elements

This one-of-a-kind, made to order hoodie is ideal for that elusive performance art known as cosplay in which participants wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character, An important element in Japanese pop culture particularly, manga and anime, comic books, cartoons, video games and live-action films are favorite sources of cosplay. The choice to resemble a monster emanating from a horror writer's nightmares is another issue entirely, but in the world of game fantasy anything goes.

In many instances, cosplayers create their own costumes and devote much time to detail and qualities, often educating themselves in crafting textiles, sculpture, face-paint and wood-working in an attempt to render the exact look and texture of a costume. Various forms of body modification often come into play as for example, in the case of specially colored contact lenses duplicating a character's unique eyes.

Special features of this hoodie

Making costumes takes time and effort and cosplayers sometimes seek an easier way to keep up with their game, so to speak.  This custom hoodie is made of lime green fleece accented with darker green on the hood, which has tentacles and red plastic animal eyes. The seams are professionally top-stitched for durability.

Whether you are a cosplayer or just a lover of unique and geeky apparel, in  the cthulhu  hoodie you can be warm but look hot to others of your ilk. Be the first on your block to purchase this one-of-a-kind, zip-up, wild fleece hoodie.
