    A lovely translucent colour and graceful shape. I don’t know…somehow it seems wrong that a cephalopod should look like something out of Neuschwanstein.

    His prophecy is being fullfilled as described in the Pnakotic fragments!

    “I, the Great Cthulhu, exalted among the Old Ones, shall make a messenger in the likeness of the cephalod, translucent and white as if a jellyfish from the depths.”

    I saw that one already, it’s so cute! It looks like it’s looking up into the camera and wondering what it is. Ah~ I want to snuggle it!

    In the darkness of the Greater Deeps, no one see your camouflage.

    It’s so cute! The way its tentacles are positioned makes it look like it’s hiding something under it or that it’s just nonchalantly watching the human with the camera.

    Your reference to Neuschwanstein is a bit too cryptic for me. What does a pale, yet beautiful cephalapod have to do with “Mad” King Ludwig II. The slightly “crazy” eyes, maybe.

    Please elaborate.

    Hai Sweetie!

    Meanwhile @18 – I would say the ref to Neuschwanstein might be to those scalloped tentacled thingies popping out all over the shop which are looking somewhat like Ludvig’s Wagneresque towers n’ turrets job.

    pj elaborates:

    The octopretty looks like it wouldn’t be out of place in Ludwig’s quintessential fairy-tale castle that has inspired all the further manifestations of fairy-taleness, including those in Disneyland(s). And that’s not something I’d expect from Cthulhu’s younger sibling. Where’s the menace? Where’s the awe? That up there is a princessy octopus.
