Every year, in early December, I think "Oh, I should make some Krampus masks in time for Krampusnacht! And every year, after I've started, I remember that Krampusnacht is, in fact, in early December. Whoops. So, anyway, best go ahead and grab one now, because these will sell out well before it gets cold, and I'll forget to make more till it's too late, and we'll both be sad. I got a little carried away with this Krampus. I mean, what's better than two horns? FOUR, OBVIOUSLY. He's -sorta- based off a Jacob;'s ram (if you don't know them, look them up, they are super cute), but also I gave him a bat nose, and mostly I was just having a good time. I'm pretty sure that this Krampus is a great guy to have around; like, he probably has really strong opinions on which beer's are the best (he likes the dark ones), but he's also not gonna shame you for drinking an IPA.
The wonder of a copper mask is in the strength and give of the material. Because it is so strong, the mask can be very thin- this makes it both very light, and makes it possible to fit as a second skin. These won't block your peripheral vision the way a leather, paper-maiche, or plastic mask would. They can be very comfortably worn all day and night- no worries about sweat or rain causing them to soften and lose their shape. Rinse it with clean water at the end of the night before putting it away. They can stand up to anything you throw at them. As for packing? Throw it in your bag. If you're checking the bag, maybe stuff a balled up pair of socks where your forehead would go. Easy.
The horns used for my Krampusforms are byproducts of other industries; they are natural, they are not vegan, but no one died for them. We are proud to honour the animal that grew them by using them as part of new and beautiful things. Because they are natural, we recommend storing them somewhere dry.
Not planning to wear your mask? They won't mind. They can hang flat against a wall, or sit on a shelf.
