Good Krampus masks are not easy to come by in the US. The few mass-produced masks made here can be somewhat 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 paints, adhesives, a selection of paintable pre-cast resin faces with ears (Model 1,2, or 3 — possible 4th coming), materials for making teeth, and tongues, a selection of fur colors, as well as authentic goat, ram, or other horns as available.
A tip sheet and resource guide for economically creating an accompanying costume will also be available at the workshop. Participants who create a traditional full suit with mask are eligible to join the Krampus Los Angeles Troupe, allowing them to participate as performers in our annual Krampus run and attend events such as the Krampus Ball at no cost.
