Day 359: The Rat King and the Creepy Christmas Dolls
I woke up this Christmas morning to a few inches of fresh snow, with more falling. Ideally, I should have ventured out to catch a bucolic, show scene, but the timing was not right. We had too many peasants to wrap and a Christmas Brunch to attend.
The Brunch was at our friend's home — a 20 year tradition. Also a 20 year tradition, is our friend's growing collection of creepy Christmas dolls. They adorn every corner of her house during The Season.
Taken at a distance, they are actually quite nice, depicting scenes from classic Christmas stories like The Nutcracker and A Christmas Carol.
But up close? Well … They're a bit creepy.
Above is The Rat King from the nutcracker. Below is an animated GIF of a bunch of the others screaming in agony.
What is this, some kind of series?
Yes, it is! Throughout 2017 I'm attempting to take a new image every day and post it to this blog. Ambitious, I know. Success is not guaranteed, but I'll give it my all. You can see all of the images below. Just click on a thumbnail and flip through them.
