Christmas without a visit from the Krampus? What's a Krampus you ask?
Back in the day, long before Christianity, naughty children were
visited by the Krampus during the Krampus Festival (first week of
December). After the creation of Santa, he pretty much rode
shot-gun with Santa and would punish the naughty by either licking them
with his very long tongue or whipping them with birch branches. Eventually
he was replaced with Santa giving you coal if you were bad, but he's
been making a comeback the last 10 years or so. I first learned of the
Krampus when watching the Very Venture Christmas Special (GO TEAM
I had way more fun with this one than I should have.
The base model used is my husband, who I harassed for close to two weeks
before I could get him to agree to pose for some stock images. He
wasn't overly thrilled at first, but as work progressed he liked it.
The tongue is his, as well is the nose, ear, teeth & nails. I don't
think I will be putting u pa stick pack for this one.
Krampus' is German for "Greetings From Krampus". It was one of the
standard greetings on the Krumpus cards given out during the festival.
