Long before Ebenezer Scrooge was the name most associated with being a Christmas grouch (we're talking pre-Christian, pagan era long), Krampus was the terror around town. And far worse than being an elderly miser that stamps about muttering "Bah, Humbug," Krampus, the cloven hoofed Christmas demon, will beat you with switches and drag you to hell! As you can imagine, people have been harboring some ill-will toward this creepy character for quite some time now, and it seems that the release of Krampus' recent film has inspired a fresh batch of Twitter trolls to take to the social media network and give this dastardly demon a roast!
Inspired by Jimmy Kimmel's "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" segment, but with a Christmassy twist, we bring you Jimmy Kringle's "Krampus Reads Mean Tweets." Was Krampus a good sport about the mean things people had to say about his film, or do Krampus(s) have feelings to? See for yourself in the video below!

Putting together this authentic Krampus costume was very straight-forward. Our adult Krampus costume includes pretty much everything you need, and the embellishments are up to you! The mask is a "half mask," which will leave the lower half of your face exposed. We blended black and white cream makeup until it matched the grey tone of the half mask, and then fitted our Krampus with some custom werewolf teeth. Don't forget your whip and chain! How else will you torture misbehaving children??
