Vengeful Threads_Oni Mask exclusive

 

Oni (鬼?) are a kind of yōkai from Japanese folklore, variously translated as demons, devils, ogres, or trolls. They are popular characters in Japanese art, literature and theatre. Depictions of oni vary widely but they are generally portrayed as hideous, gigantic ogre-like creatures with sharp claws, wild hair, and two long horns growing from their heads. They are humanoid for the most part, but occasionally, they are shown with unnatural features such as odd numbers of eyes or extra fingers and toes. Their skin may be any number of colours, but red and blue are particularly common.

I think that Vengeful Threads got the Oni Mask exactly right!  My depiction is of a more shapely oni *laughs* he’s obviously not been fed for a while and is standing around waiting for his next meal to come along. The mask is original mesh, made as an exclusive for The Darkness Chamber Fair.

Not only is this fabulous mask in gold but there’s also variations in silver, red, purple, green and blue. Permissions are Copy/Modify so you can get a good fit. All I did was to enlarge slightly and reposition.

Now you’ll have to hold your horses as the fair opens on August 6th and runs until August 27th, but until then why not have a look at their blog and check out all the designers who’ll be making goodies for this event.

I’m including a landmark to The Darkness Chamber Fair but please be aware that the event won’t open to the public until August 6th.

Cheers, m’dears 🙂

    • I had to look them up! Japanese folklore is full of interesting tales, I’ve studied the Chinese variety but not the Japanese.
