The Treif Menorah, Octopus Candelabra, and Tentacle Tapers

While themes are optional for Collabor88, I usually try to be guided by the theme.  This time though, I knew what I wanted to do for December before the theme was announced- Hanukkah this year starts on December 12, not long after the 8th (but maybe enough you have time for sim traffic to be reasonable).  One of my offerings for this month is a menorah.  A very non traditional menorah- the candles are not straight across, the octopus is not a kosher animal (sea creature without fins and scales!), and worst of all, was also used in anti Jewish propaganda (Nazis ruin everything).  On the other hand, 8 tentacles, 8 nights, and for those who want something a bit weird for their menorah!  (If you want a traditional menorah, -RC- Cluster just released some nice ones!)  The menorah version with the shamash also comes without the candle on the top of his head, an octopus candelabra for the entire year.  Both are texture change with 4 metals and 16 candles, and each candle can be lit and extinguished on touch to light each night, or as many candles as you wish otherwise, just visible flickering flames and cast point light versions included.

There are also matching tentacle taper candle holders, which come with tentacles facing both directions, and with short and tall tapers.  All the octopus and tentacles are 1 LI each at the given size.

Find them this month at Collabor88, from Schadenfreude!
