Krampuslauf (Krampus Night) is coming, and this time I decided I wanted to make a really big mask for Portland's annual procession of Krampus and Friends along SE Hawthorne Ave.
In addition to the large, over the entire head mask I am making being potentially much more impressive (terrifying) than the face mask I have worn in previous years, it also offers plenty of room inside to accommodate coronavirus PPE.
Pictured above is the mask-making progress from the past four days. The character is kind of a composite Perchta/Baba Yaga/Winter Crone concept, and she will likely carry a 6' long birch twig broom to sweep away the old year (good riddance!) as well as to serve as a social distancing reminder/reinforcement.
