Cthulhu Ski Mask – A Monstrous Mask

Monster on the slopes

The handmade Cthulhu ski mask may not make you anywhere near as scary as the fictional monster it represents but it's a pretty good ski mask.


The tentacles seem to make it warm and comfortable to wear and the material used is 20% egg protein yarn, which does not irrigate or itch your skin. It can be pulled up to reveal the mouth.


It's a lot of fun to wear and even doubles as a costume.

What's a Cthulhu?

The Cthulhu is described as "a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers, a scaly, rubbery-looking body, prodigious claws on hind and fore feet, and long, narrow wings behind."


Its head is depicted as similar to a whole giant octopus, unknown number of tentacles make up to look like what seems to be its beard. It first appeared in "The Call of Cthulhu", a short story written by American writer H. P. Lovecraft.
