Monstrous Galactic Coffee Cups

The Tiki Cthulhu Mug is Ideal for Sci-Fi Ava Junkies

— June 5, 2013 — Lifestyle
The Tiki Cthulhu Mug is perhaps the most terrifying way to enjoy a cup of coffee. The mug has the face of Cthulhu, the now-iconic star of H.P. Lovecraft's 'The Call of Cthulhu.' For whatever reason, the Internet has grown fond of the tentacled monster created by Lovecraft. His sinister grin and mass of tentacles has adorned everything from hooded sweatshirts to playing cards.

The Tiki Cthulhu Mug was created by artist Kristina Lucas Francis. The amount of detail in the mug is stunning, despite the fact that said detail has went into creating a tentacled monster. The mug stands 7.5" and can hold up to 16 ounces. It is on sale for $39.99, which makes it a bit pricey for all but the most hardcore Cthulhu fans. Heed the call.
