MOVING!

My dear readers, thank you for being patrons of this blog that has helped me channel my crazy loves of monsters and all things weird and wonderful. I  have opened a new blog to further streamline things and I have moved most of the content here that fits over to it. If you would like to join me, please bookmark WEIRDCREST.COM and we will continue with creatures and kitties, monsters and mini art!

Favorite Kaiju: Hedorah!

Hedorah is also known as the Smog Monster.  It first appeared in Toho’s 1971 film Godzilla vs. Hedorah.

Born of pollution and feeding on pollution,Hedorah is an extraterrestrial kaiju who fell to Earth as a cloud of spores. Upon arriving on our planet,Hedorah hatched into millions of microscopic organisms which began to feed upon the toxins with which humankind has polluted the air and water.
As the tadpole-like microbes increased in number and power, they began to merge into a giant monster of living sludge .Since Hedorah fed on pollution, as  long as a small piece of it remained alive, Hedorah could retreat to absorb more pollution in order to regenerate itself.

Dragons of South America: Bachue’!

Bachue’ is a mother goddess from Muisca Colombian mythology. She is the mother of humanity, and emerged from Lake Iguaque with a baby in her arms, who grew up to become her husband. The two populated the earth, and after creating all of humanity, they turned into serpents and returned to the now-sacred lagoon from which they arose.

Her name means “she who has naked breasts”, and she also watches over the crops that sustain man.

It is believed that Bachue’ returns on occasion to guide her people.
