Right now I am using a black felt dice bad I bought from a local FLGS, I use to a mushroom can (small) and tapped it up with black electrical tape and put in a foam circular pad at the bottom with a hand drawn Elder Sign on it, it was cool but I grew out of it when I got Unseen Forces.

What do you use?

I also posted this in the Eldritch Horror forums.

I had a nice little ceramic pot I used to use, but expansions outgrew it. Now I use an FFG "Tentacles" dice bag:

Yeah, we just use a generic dice bag. Boring.

A pumpkin-shaped bag (that once hosted a few "halloweeny" chocolates - I suspect monsters devoured the chocolates and stopped in the bag 'cause it was comfy)

I use a large green chessex dice bag, goes along with the color scheming of the monsters (dark green for the non children). Works pretty well, I try to mix it up as best as I can when a monster gets readded to the bag (because of Trophy discarding or effects)

I use a linen Call of Cthulhu bag from q-workshop.

http://q-workshop.com/p/282/2215/call-of-cthulhu-dice-bag-wh...

They also have it in black w/green elder sign.
http://q-workshop.com/p/282/2814/call-of-cthulhu-dice-bag-bl...

...and of course this one, a little too cheesy for my taste...
http://q-workshop.com/p/282/3067/call-of-cthulhu-dice-bag-co...

The bag works out great with my storage solution, but it fairly tight when including all the expansion monsters as well. The arts cow options look like you could get a little bigger size.

I've been thinking about redoing my foamcore setup completely, with the addition of Omens of Ice and Grave Consequences, and moving to the actual CoC dice cup from q-workshop. I've got the elven variant for some other dice games, so I can check the size before ordering.

A coffee mug or a dice bag. Nothing exciting.

Well, coffee is exciting, but a coffee mug not so much when it has no coffee in it, nor the threat of coffee in it. Which I don't want when it has monster chits in it.

I thought "monster cup"'s only meaning would be "a cup for the monsters".

Now I know better.

I thought The Monster Cup was a football/soccer competition between different factions of monsters? No? Ok... moving on...

Oh, and I use a nice silk draw bag for mine.

I genuinely use a plastic bowl that has a scene from Carry On Camping on it. Not quite in keeping with theme, Carry On Screaming would be more appropriate.
