Simple, yet horrible.
It's been said by smarter people than me that the reason the primitive pixel-based characters of video game yesteryear became so iconic is their simplicity forced our minds to fill out the details. That process made us connect with these characters in a deeper, more direct way than we do with the ultra-realistic characters of modern games.

Except modern games like Minecraft. With its simple retro graphics, Minecraft is connecting with players in the same way the games of our childhood did. That's perhaps why the blocky Creeper is so eerie. And why this Creeper plush doll is even creepier.

Gah! Weren't ready for that, were you? Created by genius crafter Arixystix, this plush Creeper is, according to its creator, the size of a small child. And its head rotates. We're getting chills just thinking about it.

Kill it with fire! Or head over to Arixystix's site and it out. Her other creators are much less terrifying.
