Mocathalon 2011 Category#15: Under the bed
Being a bug nut at heart, my little critter is the twisted offshoot of an overgrown kissing bug of nightmarish proportions. At least this wicked creepy crawly wont give you Chagas disease, just an overriding urge to fondle plastic objects!
About this creation
The Leftovers

Mocathalon 2011


The creeper is a nocturnal insect like creature of unknown origin.

Based on collected specimens, what’s known is that an adult measures about 9 inches on the body and over 16 inches with its appendages fully outstretched.

Despite their large size, creepers are highly adept at entering homes undetected and then locating their human prey.

Further investigation has revealed the creeper is a cerebral parasite.

After the person falls asleep, the creeper crawls up onto the bed and begins to carefully probe with its tentacled forelimbs.

Evidence collected indicates the creeper uses a powerful anesthetic to incapacitate them.

Once helpless, the creeper scrambles onto the victim in order to feed.

Its proboscis pierces the skin and injects a complex set of neurotransmitters to trick the body into producing excessive levels of dopamine which it greedily ingests.

The process leaves victim in a comatose state for one to two weeks, giving the creeper plenty of time to escape and for the wound to heal over and finally awake completely oblivious to the attack.

Surprisingly the creeper is rather timid when encountered, relying on its many defensive spines for protection.

This parting shot was captured while the creeper was still feeding. This unfortunate souls eyes were actually rolling up into his head. Quite disturbing actually. Even our photographer couldn't stand to put the whole head into the shot, yikes!

Hey Mike! This reminds me a bit of Starship Troopers 2, with those infiltration bugs. Just gives me the shivers thinking about it. Great build! ^Blub^

Thank you one and all for your comments. This is what happens when you combine the schooling of an entomologist and combine it with the twisted mind of an AFOL such as myself! Actually my inspiration came from the hemiptera "kissing bugs" that spread "Chagas disease." So as far as I'm concerned, this is my creeper and I'm sticking to it, or perhaps it's more accurate to say it's stuck to me!

Dopamine? At least the victims are enjoying themselves, then. Very scary creature indeed.

My hope is if I was to see that thing in my bed, I'd up and blow it away with my 22. rifle. Unfortunately, knowing me, I'd probably just run away while screaming like a little girl:) Very creepy and very cool!

The thumbnail had me thinking you were too lazy to use a proper backdrop, but upon further investigation I realized that you'd actually gone and put your "under the bed" monster in its natural habitat. Unfortunately, you have your facts about creepers mixed up... it's common knowledge that they're actually about two meters tall, very quiet, and explosive.

My original thought was a three but then I started reading the description and really checking out the build and you won me over. 4 points! ~ Chris.
