I haven't made much progress on my Halloween costume projects over the last couple of days because a) the weather in Wellington is so foul at the moment that I can't get anything to dry, and b) I'm not actually in Wellington right now. I'm on holiday in Brisbane. Don't worry though, I have a schedule of blog posts to keep you entertained while I'm out of town. I won't be neglecting the Countdown!
This is an idea that I played around with ages ago and didn't post for some reason. I love mummified things and I love H. P. Lovecraft, so it just made sense to make a mummified Cthulhu (after all, if you can get Hello Kitty Cthulhu then why on earth not?).

I'm particularly pleased with the colours on this sculpt. The green-brown tones are very effective. I used a resist medium to get the colours looking like that, and I think it worked very well, as you can see in the top photo of the sculpture's back.
