I needed something fun & festive to celebrate Krampus Nacht. :) I went with this skirt right here:
Wikipedia defines Krampus as a mythical creature recognized in Alpine countries. According to legend, Krampus accompanies St. Nicholas during the Christmas season, warning and punishing bad children, in contrast to St. Nicholas, who gives gifts to good children. Hey…some kids respond better to negative reinforcement. :)
Krampus Nacht is the night that Krampus roam the streets punishing those for their bad doings throughout the year. The Krampus often wear wooden masks, are dressed in animal furs, and often carry bells, chains, whips, and baskets with them.
I’m still in the process of getting better from what I shall henceforth call The Columbia Plague, so tonight’s refashion was a simple one.
I’ve gotta admit…I felt a little underdressed!
Luckily I’ve been good *cough* all year! ;)
