Read more For a long time my husband and I have been talking about wanting to have Cthulhu cake toppers for the wedding (he is really into H.P. Lovecraft and used to run a lot of Lovecraftian role-playing games in university). So I did my best to make Cthulhu cake toppers, and I thought they turned out okay! Here's how I made them… I used emerald, black, and white polymer clay (Fimo soft) for the modelling. I had nail art tools, cocktail sticks, cutting blades, and lots of patience. I also realized that if you don't have rubbing alcohol to wipe the work before baking, you can substitute it with vodka! I look forward to explaining what they are to my future husband's conservative relatives. Guest post written by claudiaflies Hi! I'm quite new to this wedding planning thing, but have lots of ideas. Both me and hubby-to-be are geeks into sci-fi, fantasy, board gaming etc. We are also on a quite a tight budget as he still in med school. And we happen to live in the most expensive city in the world (London, UK) and we are planning on getting married here. http://tribe.offbeatbride.com/members/claudiaflies PREVIOUS Emily & Branan's Star Wars, wrestling, and badminton wedding NEXT What's your candy buffet style?

It would be nice to be less ignorant 🙂 Reply My fiance and all of our nerdy friends who love Lovecraft (I'm not apparently cool enough haha) pronounce it "Ca-thew-lew" Reply It's an issue of much debate. Check the comments here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkGqJqvWOUs Favorite one: "According to the actual text, Cthulhu's name cannot be pronounced by a human voice." In my head I say "sih-thoo-loo," but that's wrong. Reply I have friends far nerdier than me that say something like "kith-ulu." It sort of sounds like you're sneezing if you're doing it right. Reply OMG. SO very cute. My HP Lovecraft-obsessed fiance would adore these! Reply This is the first time in my life I've been able to use the adjective "Lovecraftian" when referring to wedding decor. This is a big day for me. Reply Awwwww! The tails make a heart!!!! These make my heart go all pitter-pat <3 Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
