Contest submission Krampus
This is an original design Krampus I made. Body was built with a spandex underlayer and sewn in body padding, then I drafted a pattern with fleece before creating the final fur layer with National fiber Tech Fur. Head was built on a resin base, then covered with fur, which was trimmed and airbrushed. Horns are cast resin Ram horns. The eyes are acrylic cabochons - I designed and printed the eye in photoshop, then used E6000 to glue to the eye blank. Eyelids, nose and gums were made with a 2 part epoxy. The tongue is squishy foam removable via magnets. The hooves were cast with a flexible foam and sewn to a shoe base. Hands were made with a simple glove pattern with fingernails sculpted and glued to the finger tips. Tail includes a flexible wire core which was wrapped with upholstery foam and covered with fur.
The accessories were made from assorted scrap leather and fabric. The chains were originally white plastic which I dyed on the stovetop with Rit Synthetic dye. I used a variety of paints, inks and petroleum jelly to weather the individual parts.
