I smell a giant trend approaching (well it’s already well underway, really). Like zombies, bacon and cupcakes, the krampus is rising in pop culture.
KRAMPUSFEST begins today:
A “multi-venue celebration” that will run this year from December 5th to the 21st. A troupe of costumed Krampus performers will appear at each venue, including the Krampus Ball, an art exhibition, and a publicly held run held in conjunction with the Downtown Art Walk. Each member of the Krampus Los Angeles Troupe makes their costume mostly by hand.
Now they are all over sweaters, ornaments, cards…
There is an amazing art show I wish I could attend.
Much more info at the Krampus Los Angeles…a blog entirely dedicated to this folklore fiend!
