Another drawing of Taiga 😍 I'm a bit addicted I have to admit, I hope you all don't mind😂 Tried for a look inspired by the animes Mononoke/Ayakashi here 🎐 🌿🍑🌿 • • • • #ayakashianime #mononokeanime #kusuriuri #anime #instaartist #instaart #instagood #artistsofinstagram #art #drawing #illustration #beast #beastboyfriend #monsterboyfriend #monsterlover #oni #japaneseogre #japanesefolklore #mythologicalbeast #mythology #kimono #samurai #ghoulpetalocs
Have you used that fabric yet? Yes! Yes I have! This was a pretty hasty make that I just about pulled out of the bag! When thinking of my costume for @hyperjapanofficial I didn't want to do a character cosplay and thought a fun way to dress up would be to go as a kitsune disguised in her human form going to a festival in a kitsune-inspired outfit. Wow. Much kitsune. Very inception. Many meta. The yukata is much more lightweight than a traditional kimono which was a godsend in the heat! I'll definitely be revisiting the pattern to add some boro-style patches (especially as I managed to rip a little hole, oops) and to completely re-make the obi as I made it waaaaay too short, it really needed the interfacing that I thought it didn't need (oopsx2) and I'd like to make it to look more like a fox tail (red with a white tip). I may also look to make my own tabi (socks) and arm covers from a thicker fabric. Overall this was a wonderful project to call back to (and revive) my love for Japanese culture and folklore. Bonus photo of me and @ginger_flames enjoying an inari biru (because I thought a kitsune drinking inari beer was a clever joke) and me showing my love for Kikkoman soy sauce.

Kitsune is finally here, her back ref is the very last slide so ignore the others - Kitsune Woman(F🦊N.04)- Deadly Blade. She was created for combat and was built to undergo dangerous and stealthy missions. She fights with war fans that can release charges of fire or electricity. She is very observant but she can get a little too protective...to her best friend Arachne. She also gets very pissed off when the dudes do stupid things- - Weapon: Fire Wall/Electric slash Likes: Sharp objects Dislikes: Crowds Badpoint: Pessimistic Goodpoint: Intelligent Weakness: Web whip - - #megaman #rockman #videogames #retro #drawing #illustration #games #classic #sketch #anime #bluebomber #manga #doodle #rock #mega #robot #superfightingrobot #doodles #kitsune #kisunewoman #robotmasteroc #megamanoc #fox #ninja #warfan #martialartist #yokai #japanesefolklore
Spent the evening torturing my lovely boss @neen_foxden 🖤 this is the beginning of my take on the nure-onna from Japanese folklore. A nure-onna's intentions are unknown. In some stories, she is a monstrous being who is powerful enough to crush trees with her tail and feeds on humans. She carries with her a small, childlike bundle, which she uses to attract potential victims. If a well-intentioned person offers to hold the baby for her, the nure-onna will let them. If they attempt to discard the bundle, however, it is revealed that it is not a child at all. Instead, the bundle becomes incredibly heavy and prevents the victim from fleeing. She then uses her long, snake-like tongue to suck all the blood from her victim’s body. 🐍 ▪️cambiontattoo@gmail.com ▪️ #blackwork #blacktattoo #blackworker #blackworkers #blacktattooing #blacktattooart #blackink #blkttt #btattooing #illustrativetattoo #ctink #cttattoo #cttattooshop #cttattooartist #cttattoos #ctsmallbusiness #ct #japanesefolklore #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #femaleartist

Hello. This is a #tanuki #狸 #mårdhund #racoondog from Kyoto. I brought them home in 2000 after our first stay in #takanohara They have breasts, a big tummy (symbolizes bold and calm decisionmaking) and big balls (symbolize financial luck). They are #nonbinary They carry a turtle shell hat to protect from bad weather and bad times. They are able to change shape to play tricks with people. They carry a bottle of sake. You find them outside homes and restaurants to bring luck and make you feel welcome. However in Sweden people found them so ugly and wondered about our bad taste. They were seen as a very ugly #trädgårdstomte . Therefore I have brought them inside where I can enjoy my guilty pleasure of bad taste love for tanuki. #japaneseculture #Japanesefolklore #gardengnome

Here's the finished Kitsune hair clip/brooch! However it did turn out a bit to big, I think, so this size is probably limited to 8. #kitsune #kitsunemask #yokai #japanesefolklore #japanesefairytales #fox #mysticalfox #foxhairclip #foxbrooch #kawaiifox #whitefox #kitsunefox #embroidery #embroideryart #etsy #etsyscout
🦊🗾⛩️🗻🇯🇵 *REPOST* Kitsune 狐, キツネ, is the Japanese word for the fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict them as intelligent beings and as possessing paranormal abilities that increase with their age and wisdom. According to Yōkai folklore, all foxes have the ability to shapeshift into human form. While some folktales speak of kitsune employing this ability to trick others—as foxes in folklore often do—other stories portray them as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives - - - - - - - - - So this started out with being inspired by Kitsune mask / Kitsune makeup other people have done , but as I progressed I realized I didn't have the right colors and this is just what happened Just going with the flow . I also used this to practice one new makeup but two my editing skills , as you can see the editing is oblivious bit I like it with this . With Kitsune being other worldly they wouldn't have a very basic human face and the contour makes it less human . I don't really know this happened at 6 am when I couldn't sleep so Enjoy 🤗 - {IGNORE TAGS} #cosplayer #makeup #makeuptest #japanesefolklore #folklore #japanese #inspiredmakeup #kitsunemakeup #kitsunemakeupinspiration #blackedouteyes #makeuplooks #makeuplooks #twotonedhair #nature #garden #plants #collar #studedchoker #choker #chokernecklace #paleskin #yokai #fox #japanesefox #malemakeup #boyswearmakeup #boyswewrmakeuptoo

Kuchisake-Onna or the slit-mouth woman. This urban legend / popular ghost story has been round for a long time in Japan. Some say it goes back to the Edo period but there were a large number of reported sightings in the 70s. The legend goes that a woman will approach you at night. A mask conceals the lower part of her face. She asks if you think she's beautiful. If you say no she will cut you in half, if you say yes she will remove the mask revealing that she has a slit from the corners of her mouth to her ears. "Do you still think I am beautiful?" she will ask. If you say no she will cut you in half, if yes is your answer she will cut your mouth to give you the same gruesome grin.

A work in progress! @hanthecorgi is out for a hunt of pretty blue butterfly while ducking through his worst enemies cardboard boxes and plastic bags XD (they are designed as ghouls and will-o-the-wisp) I know this one was in the back log for so long but life was so busy and I needed to focus on other pieces that were needed at the time... And when I was back on this I didn't have work in progress I was satisfied with :( #hanthecorgi #corgistagram #corgi #instaartist #instaart #cuteanimals #cutedogs #3d #3dillustration #zbrush #sculpting #sculpt #wip #photoshop #mattepainting #illustration #samurai #onimusha #corgimusha #ghouls #japanese #japanesefolklore #ronin #vagabond #tenthousandhours #practicemakesperfect

Muchas personas tienen la idea de que hay un significado oculto detrás de los tatuajes japoneses , que los clanes se tatúan determinadas cosas o animales , la verdad es que a pesar de qué hay reglas MUY específicas en forma y significado para el tatuaje irezumi muchos de los miembros de yakuza no sabían en realidad lo que se tatuaban , el tatuador decidía y sugería , se esperaba que la persona soportara sin hacer muecas o quejarse , el dolor vivido dignamente era parte de lo que hacía bueno el tatuaje y al portador merecedor de él , por otro lado muchos clanes se tatuaban en la creencia de que el dinero llama dinero , si gastas el “flujo” hace que el dinero regrese a ti era algo menos místico de lo que pensamos en occidente. En el Japón medieval los criminales eran marcados con puntos en la muñeca de forma que al levantar la manga del kimono pudieran verse y las personas saber que eran delincuentes , el tatuaje tradicional japonés nace como respuesta a esta práctica del gobierno .

Maybe it’s not about getting rid of your inner demons. Maybe it’s about learning to fight them. Maybe it’s about rising & learning to live with them.
Tried doing a time lapse and discovered that I have no patience for it 😟 excuse the shakiness 💔 @strathmoreart @sakuraofamerica

This #tinytuesday post features a tall, thin #miniaturebook "A Piece of Straw," attributed to Minamoto Takakuni. This legend dates back to the Konjaku Monogatori tales which were written in the Heian period, 794 - 1185 AD. . It tells a story of a poor man from Kyoto, who through bartering and a bit of mercy from the goddess Kannon-sama, turns his worldly possessions from a piece of straw to an entire farm for his family. He dies a rich and happy man. . Published by Tabula Rasa Press in 1985 in a "finger-book format." . . . #miniaturebooks #tinybooks #japaneselegends #japanesefolklore #kyoto #japan #pieceofstraw #minamototakakuni #heian #japanese #specialcollections #bookstagram #bookaddict #bookish #bookworm #CharlotteSmithMinis #tabularasapress #bookbinding #handmade #printmaking @uispeccoll
I love watching Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi! It's a feel good and light anime and there's food! I love cooking and I am particularly exploring Japanese cuisine. Though I havent tasted authentic Japanese food, I love how they value the culture of their food that's why I am somewhat drawn to it. This anime is also about Japanese folklore which I am also interested in. There's only a hint of romance which suit my preference genre-wise. (And there's a fox! It's still a dogger right hahahahahaha sorry) :) #kakuriyonoyadomeshi #kakuriyobedandbreakfastforspirits #ginji #aoitsubaki #anime #japanesefolklore #food #cuisine #love #screenshot #cooking #fox #doge #dogger #canine
