Merry Cthulhumas

Dec 23, 2012

It was around this time last year that Maika, co-editor of Archie McPhee’s Endless Geyser of Awesome, created her first Cthulhumas tree using a bunch of our Chtulhu tentacles, blue string lights, silver garland, a plush Cthulhu, and just the right amount of eldritch chanting. 

Knowing the Great Old Ones would be expecting a tribute at least as nice as last year’s effort, Maika created a second Cthulhumas tree this year, building on the original design with the addition of more lights, three dozen Finger Tentacles, and some Terrified B-Movie Victims. 

Don’t leave small pets or children alone around this tree. Those frightened little figures won’t satisfy it for long. 

Merry Cthulhumas to all of you!

May the Elder Gods continue to sleep soundly.

Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn.




Our customers rule

Dec 16, 2012

We’ve always said that Archie McPhee has the best customers.
Our customers rule!

Here are some recent visitors to our store, each of them completely awesome:


Two fine fellows proudly sporting their new Krampus and Cthulhu Christmas sweaters.


This gentleman was thrilled to be the new owner of a headless zombie corpse. Wouldn’t you be too?


These two refused bags for their festive hats and wore them out instead.


This group traveled all the way from France and paid us a visit. How awesome is that? Super awesome!


A playful John Waters fan strikes a pose with our favorite John Waters postcard. Thank goodness for that man and his marvelous mustache.

So when are you coming to visit?




Video flashback

Are you ready for a little trip down memory lane? One of our awesome customers recently tweeted about a video segment of the Almost Live! show that was shot inside our old locations down on 35th and Stone Way. Now we’d like to share it with you. Click here to watch the video.
