As comical as it is gruesome, the Nuribotoke is an animate corpse said to take great pleasure in its mockery of mortal life and is often portrayed as a mockery of Buddha. It is characterized by dangling eyeballs, oozing black skin, and an extremely bloated stomach; symptoms of the swelling and rupturing that can occur during decomposition.
In addition to its striking physical resemblance, the Nuribotoke sometimes poses as a messenger of Buddha to manipulate particularly foolish practitioners with false prophecies. Otherwise, this lighthearted ghoul devotes its spare time to joyous dancing, especially during the "Hyakki Yako Zu" or "Parade of a Hundred Demons", said to occur one night every summer. It is sometimes depicted with the tail of a catfish.
Here's my Nuribotoke action figure.I sculpted his head from clay over an Emce Bones head.His body is a brown Castaway body which I dyed black with rit fabric dye and sculpted on his bloated corpse belly and sagging chest with clay.I painted all sculpted parts with acrylics and sealed with Modpodge.His skirt is spandex that I cut off of another outfit I shortened.
