So the deadline for this is tomorrow. I'll see if I can get mine done. I have a particular legend in mind, but if I can't find the reference I'll probably just pass on this. I'll let you know.

I am working on my entry right now. ^^

Nope. I'm finished ^^ I was inspired today!

So I choose an Asian Legend/Ghost. There are various versions of here but Wiki actually had a version that was pretty close to the one I first read a few years back.


Yuki-onna
yuki = snow ; onna = woman

A long time ago, there lived two woodcutters, Minokichi and Mosaku. Minokichi was young and Mosaku was very old.
One winter day, they could not come back home because of a snowstorm. They found a hut in the mountain and decided to sleep there. On this particular evening, Mosaku woke up and found a beautiful lady with white clothes. She breathed on old Mosaku and he was frozen to death.
She then approached Minokichi to breathe on him, but stared at him for a while, and said, "I thought I was going to kill you, the same as that old man, but I will not, because you are young and beautiful. You must not tell anyone about this incident. If you tell anyone about me, I will kill you."
Several years later, Minokichi met a beautiful young lady, named Oyuki and married her. She was a good wife. Minokichi and Oyuki had several children and lived happily for many years. Mysteriously, she did not age.
One night, after the children were asleep, Minokichi said to Oyuki: "Whenever I see you, I am reminded of a mysterious incident that happened to me. When I was young, I met a beautiful young lady like you. I do not know if it was a dream or if she was a Yuki-onna..."
After finishing his story, Oyuki suddenly stood up, and said "That woman you met was me! I told you that I would kill you if you ever told anyone about that incident. However, I can't kill you because of our children. Take care of our children... " Then she melted and disappeared. No one saw her again.


Not extremely scray, but I really wanted to do this. ^^ Oh and I know her kimono is supposed to be totally white, I took artistic license.

The term Dollmaker is loosely translated to any Dollmaker, but then also Shuni dolls you draw yourself. So if you like drawing your own thing find a Shuni base and head and then edit it to your hearts content.

Animation is fine as long as its not extensive. Just note that it typically doesn't affect score. Usually what wins a contest is how well the theme is displayed, creativity, and effort.

Edit: also backgrounds, text, props, and frames are always optional, but certainly encouraged.
