-it really does establish who they are...."

"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

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...."
