Great find of the week - Alternative London Punk Doll by Marian Kenny


Fab little Punk girl. This was totally me somewhere around the early 80s, complete with orange hair, cateye make up, black mini skirt with chains and studded belt, fishnet tights and flat pixie boots. Like a little MiniMe.
I found her in a tub with lots of other dolls, a sad little tub of someone's lifetime's collection so I took them all home with me. There were also some big eye Bradgate dolls which I'm sure I used to have a Japanese one when I was little, I remember her big black hair with centre parting and the huge cute eyes but mostly I'm sure she was wearing a fab red silk brocade Kimono, which I am still a massive fan of now. Lord knows how many I have all around the house, different colours for different moods.

This little punk girl though, an original designed by Marian Kenny appears to be a bit of a collectable one, so result all round. Now I just have to decide whether she's going to live me or will she make it to the shop.... Hmmmm. Well maybe after we've gone through the old vinyl punk collection a bit and pogo's around the house remembering our yoof. LOL

The ones shown below are sourced from an informative site Krampus.com.  So a vague memory of the story began to come into consciousness, as I lived in Germany when I was a child, so I must have picked up the decoration then, along with the other Kugel ornaments I have.
The Krampus travels along on as the dark companion or anti-matter to St Nikolaus on the 6th December to challenge and take away the naughty children, much like the Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. He also reminds me of the Devil, the Capricorn card in the Tarot with his hairy good looks and chains that bind the sorry souls to earth with their illusionary materialism, which is appropriate for C…

Christmas window thus far, it's steaming up already in here and blew this side lights in the same day as putting them up. So there's a bit of heath robinson on the light department - but besides the lighting malfunction we have delicious vintage gowns and treasures for you, to get you feeling all glitzy and glam.
