KRAMPUS MASK WORKSHOPS

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  paints, adhesives, a selection of paintable pre-cast resin faces with ears (three models), materials for making teeth, and tongues, a selection of fur colors, as well as authentic goat, ram, or other horns as available.  More details available on the Mask Workshop page.

Location: Pasadena

Signups: Limited sign-up.  Please contact us ASAP if you may be interested.

THE KRAMPUS BALL 

Venue: Alpine Village, a little bit of make-believe Germany in Torrance. If you’ve never been, the place is a sort of mash-up of German shopping center and storybook film set. The Ball will be held in the grand and oh-so-Bavarian ballroom.

HeadlinerKRAMMPSTEIN, a high-concept, hard-rocking hybrid of Germany’s industrial-metal gods Rammstein with everyone’s favorite Alpine demon. Donning horns, masks, and pelts, the band led by Green Jellÿ alum Greg Reynard, tears through an apocalyptic set of Rammstein hits lyrically reworked to obsessively detail the child-beating lifestyle of the Krampus. Dazzling stage-show effects, infernal lighting, and Christmas cookies compliment the spectacle.

LA Krampus Troupe Attack: At any point during the festivities, visitors may notice a gathering din of clanking cowbells telling them they are only moments from that moment the ballroom doors burst open and a massed attack by more than two dozen devils and mountain spirits will swirl them into a maelstrom of horns and flicking switches. Pray that St. Nicholas can gain control of his malevolent slaves and save the evening!  

Other Acts: TBA

Vendors: TBA

Tickets: On sale here, November 1.

LA KRAMPUSLAUF (KRAMPUS RUN)

We’re back for our fifth year and again part of Art Walk with our own street closed off in downtown LA. Naughty and nice alike can come get their just deserts from St. Nicholas and the switch-wielding devils of LA’s first and only KRAMPUS TROUPE. We’ll also have several northern Californians from BEAST BAY KRAMPUS, including artist Kimric Smythe who will again be chauffeuring Nicholas in his amazing Krampus-driven steam-car.  The event is FREE and family-friendly (our Krampuses are well trained to not frighten children)

More details coming.

Location: Downtown Los Angles, exact location TBA.
