For the Summer Nerd Games May Textbook Challenge I made an Old One, from HP Lovecraft's story "At the Mountains of Madness." 

"They were the great 'Old Ones' that had filtered down from the stars when the earth was young - the beings whose substance an alien evolution had shaped, and whose powers were such as this planet had never bred."

It is in 1:12 scale, made of felt, with red bead eyes:

OK that's... wow. Lovecraft scared the hell out of me when I dreamed about it and now I fear I may be dreaming about it again. Thanks!

Cuddly Lovecraft? Eeeeeeee, I don't know. The Thing on the Doorstep keeps coming into mind when I try to picture cuddling with a Lovecraft creature and then I get the Heebly Jeeblies.

I love Lovecraft. Grin
Nice work on the Old One.
I'd love to see something like this about 4'-5' tall as a large plush Cheesy

Also loved your Dryad!
Awesome work!
