The Dreamer

This intriguing tableaux comes to us from artist DB81.  The idol is the very popular Ancient One Tribute Box released last month.  I was a little surprised to see the price has started to climb from the original $12, but that may be Amazon's targeting algorithm.

Send in the Clowns

Coulrophobia, the irrational fear of clowns, has been enjoying a surge of popularity thanks to a wave of "menacing clown" reports (here, and here) across the US.  A pessimist would view this mask from the Shoggoth Assembly as doubly creepy- it's a clown, and a skinned human face.  An optimist would see an inspiring trophy
