I was going to make this a Totally Geeky or Geek Chic? item, but then I realized, there is nothing particularly geeky, or chic about it.

The maker intended for this fuzzy, green homemade monstrosity - that's just my humble opinion people! - to be Cthulhu, the fictional being created by horror author H.P. Lovecraft. He gets major geek cred for turning a literary character into an iPod case, and for making his own case, but there is something about the character he chose that is so unappealing and far too campy for my taste.

"I decided to go to Jo-Anne's Fabrics and make a case," says the maker. "So, as my first "craft" project ever, I think it turned out quite nice."
