Good Krampus masks are not easy to come by in the US. The few mass-produced masks made here are sadly lacking.
Buying an authentic mask from a German-speaking vendor overseas can be daunting as well as expensive ($300-700 and shockingly expensive to ship.)
Many consider making their own masks, but have difficulty sourcing the appropriate materials and sculpting a mask they are happy with.
Our mask-making workshop does not rely on sculpting skills but takes more of a kit-assembly approach that ensures the quality of the end result while allowing you the ability to create your own custom look. Kits include a selection of paintable pre-cast resin faces, ears, teeth, and tongues, a selection of fur colors, as well as authentic goat, ram, or springbok horns.
