Worktable Wednesday and I Need Goth Help

Some paper clay pieces I'm currently working on.The largest one is the Goth Santa that I've been working on for weeks and weeks. Most of his details are finally done. I thought it would be easier to do him in clay than felt but I no longer feel that way and he keeps getting set aside in frustration. I'm determined to finish him but I need some help. I want him to hold something or do something with one of his hands. Any Goth type ideas?

I originally thought he would hold the severed head of an elf but my daughter said "none of the Goth people she knew dismembered anyone and that's just gross so don't do that mom!" She's right I was getting carried away, so I'll save that idea for something else. The only other idea I had was for him to hold a Naughty, naughty list. UGH! Meanwhile he sits armless until I come up with something so any help is appreciated. Seriously any ideas at this point would be helpful!

Wow. A goth Sana. You are so creative. I dunno, maybe look at The Nightmare Before Christmas for ideas? I was thinking a black round Christmas ornament...that could maybe be a bomb, too? Sheesh, I am no help, I know.

You have some fun projects going! As for the Goth Santa..how about a pack of cigarettes. Or maybe a run down vintage/broken toy train.

I posted my idea on Facebook but in case you look here first...
my first thought was a bag of coal.

How about a walking cane painted in candycane stripes?

Well my gosh, I love creating goth.

my first thoughts when you asked what he should be holding was; a skull lantern. Santa's hold lanterns to light their way on the dark & cold wintery nights ;)

Whatever you do will be fantastic I'm sure.
I love what you have on your work table :)
