Orlando Krampusnacht was presented by Pink Hair Productions and Thomas M. Bunting Projects. He's half-goat, half-demon and all holiday cheer. He has horns and a long tongue he is covered in fur. He caries a switch which he uses to spank children who have been bad. This demonic holiday demon keeps children in line much more effectively than Santa. It was night of not-so-traditional holiday fun honoring Krampus! I decided to host ODD (Orlando Drink and Draw) at the Hammered Lamb (1235 N Orange Ave, Orlando, Florida 32804) on the same evening as Krampusnacht. About six artists stopped out to sketch the festivities.
I wandered inside to enjoy the air conditioning, and discovered this incredible collection of Deviant Dollz. These adorable, bloody, bruised and scared dolls all had personality. Many dolls had horns just like Krampus himself. The exotic sales mistress had on a billowing black skirt with a tight corset. Prices ranged from $20 and up. These bloody creations are sure to grab attention as the~f hang in Christmas stockings, or from a rope. Several dolls were sold while I did the sketch. I felt I had to work fast, before they were all gone. Krampus himself inspected the dolls with a knowing approval.
