Perchtenlauf Costumes

The first Eugene Perchtenlauf happened last Saturday night, and it was incredible! I will be posting a more thorough overview of the experience, with photos and videos, as soon as I can. In the meantime, wanted to share the three costumes I designed. I tried to do totally different styles with each, inspired by various European mumming traditions.

bird skull plaster mask, cloak with mantle of buffalo fur, necklace of real bones, brass bells
