Apologies for the delay on announcing our Nightmare Creatures winner. We had a postal backlog and wanted to get everything else out before we concentrated on the delicate task of shipping a Slake Moth. We don't think this caution is excessive - the entirety of Perdido Street Station comes as a result of a badly-wrapped Slake Moth delivery.
The winner is: Christo. We wound up choosing randomly because all the entries were so... terrifying... but this is definitely merited. Have you seen a Weta? I hadn't. And now the image is burned forever into my mind.
Congratulations to Mr. @CTD. We hope you enjoy your prize before it reduces you to a gibbering mess. For everyone else, thank you very much for taking part. We've got a few more prizes coming up over the next few weeks.
If you're interested in pursuing a career in Suicidal Lepidoptery, the amazing Deadly Knitshade has shared the pattern for creating this creatures on her website. (The photo is from her as well!)
