Gruss Von Krampus
About the artistArt curated by About the design:
Missmonster, "I became aware of Krampus after constructing a demon costume in 2005. That's me on the far left with some amazing He-Man costumers."
"I had a lot of comments saying it looked like a folklore character named Krampus. I looked him up, lo and behold...it did look like one of the traditional costumes used during festivals. Krampus is sort of a Christmas demon thats seen in Austria, Germany and many other regions. The legend varies but basically he assists Saint Nicholas by punishing the bad children, while Nick rewards the good kids. I knew a guy that had been to a Krampus festival in Germany and actually got whipped...HARD! They don't kid around! This design is based on the Krampus greeting cards that were popular in the early 1900's"
