Hey, debbie5 I found the forum where they were selling those costumes you referenced.
http://www.krampustreff.at/wbb3/inde...stID=34028&l=2
and here is their site linked from the youtube video:

Both of those links are to the same site, and that site, on it's own, is in German.

I was amazed to find out that those masks are made of wood, and that they are using real horns on them. The faces looked believable and fairly mobile in the video.
I'm curious to see how they keep them on their heads. I'd love to go and take their course in doing the carving, but my wallet isn't fat enough, nor is my German good enough. I wish they told more about what is on the DVDs they sell, if it was the construction of the costumes and masks, and some of the history behind the performance, I'd buy them in a flash.

I went through and translated a lot of his stuff...he does sell the pants & tops separately and they are imbued with latex. If you want to buy them, you PM him privately, which I would do (just to see how much $$ they are) but my email is still screwed up, so I can't generate a PM. I'm guessing it's something like Allen H's stretchy mesh "head bags" where he puts the material over a form & gobs on thick layers of latex to create a shape. It looks like there is definitely foam underlay in the shoulder areas to give it some structure, and there are areas of "tendons" applied over the top in the arms.
Can you tell I'm kinda impressed with this?? LOL. I LOVE finding things like this...where people's pure artistic talent TRUMPS money and technology. Those masks are SO precisely cut...they come right next to the wearer's eyes..meaning the maker customizes them somewhat. Amazing engineering and carving talent. This makes my brain sizzle with artistic excitement.

They are pretty simple with some molded parts attached to a body suit and then blended with latex over the fabric. a zentai suit is the starting point.

Straight form China...cheap zentai suits. I never knew they were called that...I thought they were unitards, which also happens to be the name of the local school board...

Did I mention this place will make a custom costume at no extra charge? I may just have them make my Fat & Over 40 Tinkerbell costume...they have prom dresses for $147!!
