H.P. Lovecraft’s vision for Cthulhu was probably much more menacing than this Cthulhu Cosplay Shrug Shirt would have you believe. After all, the sweater’s adorable aesthetics don’t really allude to the fact that Cthulhu is a mountain-sized insanity-inducing cosmic entity. Still, the cropped hoodie has enough recognizable features inspired by the pop culture phenomenon to sate fans’ desire for related merchandise. And if you’re looking for bragging rights, nothing tops a sweater with a hood encrusted with tentacles.

The Cthulhu Cosplay Shrug Shirt is also unique in that it ends right above the chest, allowing wearers to show off whatever apparel they may be wearing underneath. If you're as bold as the model in these pictures, you can even wear something badass to further accentuate the eccentricity of this bizarre yet awesome hoodie.
