Cuddly Rigor Mortis Plush Tiki Doll

Aw…. look at that cute little tiki. He looks so soft and vulnerable. There’s no way he could be responsible for a curse on anybody. He just wants to come home with you and be your friend. But as soon as you fall asleep….

He’s the creation of Kristen Tercek, who sells her morbid-yet-snuggly plush items through Cuddly Rigor Mortis. Other plushes include a devil, a zombie and a mummy. This cool and well-made tiki isn’t available for purchase yet, if you want to be notified when it becomes available, email Kristen. She does have a slight variation for sale on Etsy, it’s the Luau Tiki Plush, and it has an aloha shirt instead of a skirt, and the fabric is slightly different. She also has a small clutch purse in the shape of a tiki head for sale on her Cuddly Rigor Mortis website; the website is painful to navigate, so here’s a direct link to the Tiki Plush and to the Tiki Mini-Purse. Found via Daddy Types.

    Thank you so much for your kind words! Tiki is one of my favorites and doesn’t get much press. Your site is wonderful — long live the Tiki!

    http://www.cuddlyrigormortis.com/ must be the worst designed website I have ever seen. It is absolutely horrible, and I am offended that Boing Boing pointed me here, forcing me to navigate through that crap ass website in order to see a good picture of that doll. Fark!

  3. Stephen Says:

    Seriously, i am enraged by the poor quality of that website; its clear whoever designed it thought it was all artsy and cool but its total shit. I am disgusted by the thought of that ugly ass unusable excuse for a website. Please consider things like this before posting links; people are gonna actually visit that crap job of a website that you link to!

    I agree! That’s why, if you read my post more closely, you’ll notice I say the following:

    I did struggle with posting it, for exactly the reason you state — I don’t want visitors to be frustrated by the places I send them. But I also want to point people to cool tiki things, so I included those direct links to let people bypass the annoying parts of the site and go straight to the good stuff.
