to do anything you wanted to do.
And he said,

until you try...."

"Costumes are the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth
-it really does establish who they are...."

~Colleen Atwood

"I've always been misrepresented. 

You know, I could dress in a clown costume 
and laugh with the happy people 
but they'd still say I'm a dark personality....."

~Tim Burton


Art by Nibblefest artist, Vicky Knowles

Costume, hair and makeup can tell you instantly, or at least give you a larger perception of who a character is. It's the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth, so it really does establish who they are. Colleen Atwood

Krampus Art by NIbblefest artist, Christine E.S. Code, of CES

  
According to Wikipedia...:
 
"Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic folklore figure described as "half-goat, half-demon", who, during the Christmas season, punishes children who have misbehaved, in contrast with Saint Nicholas, who rewards the well-behaved with gifts. Krampus is one of the companions of Saint Nicholas in regions including Austria, Bavaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia and Northern Italy...."

"The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated a pre-Christian origin for the figure...."

"The history of the Krampus figure has been theorized as stretching back to Pre-Christian Alpine traditions...:
