Artist Butch X has launched his all original and thrilling limited-edition Haunt Nola “Crescent City Creeper” Voodoo Doll. This toy is based on a character Butch created as a pseudo mascot for his Haunt Nola gallery. The character came to be after Mr. X created a story which featured “The Crescent City Creeper,” here’s a excerpt from the story:
“Every night in New Orleans thousands of people celebrate the night away getting wasted walking through the sketchy French quarter streets, many of them are never seen again, night after night haunted tour guides tell stories to the tourist that are hungry for spooky, voodoo history or even to take a photo of a spirit / ghost, what the haunt guides fail to tell them is where the smells throughout the streets are coming from, under this city lies countless skeleton remains, the remains of people missing dating back hundreds of years, there’s a framed paper I’ve seen amongst tons of other stuff on the wall in the oldest bar of the quarter, it’s faded away over the years but still visible you can make out something about an innocent homeless man hung etc. and the headline says DEMON ON DUMAINE… this is the story of the Crescent City Creeper” – Butch X
