Nurarihyon (ぬらりひょん), is a Yokai said to originate from Wakayama Prefecture. He is also sometimes believed to be descended from the Umibōzu of Okayama Prefecture.
The Nurarihyon is usually depicted as an old man with a gourd-shaped head and wearing a kesa. He is sometimes said to be leader of the yōkai.
The Nurarihyon will sneak into someone's house while they are away, drink their tea, and act as if it is their own house. Because he looks human, anyone who sees him will mistake him for the owner of the house, making it very hard to expel him.
Here's my Nurarihyon action figure with Chouchin-obake accessory.I sculpted his head from clay over an Emce Startrek Keeper's head.His body is a CTVT flesh body,with Castaway hands added(I painted the fingers flesh color).I sculpted his Zouri (straw sandals)from clay.My wife Tomoko sewed his kimono outfit.I cut his socks from a pair of Mad Clowns Dementia tights.I sculpted his Chouchin-obake (haunted lantern)accessory from clay.I painted all sculpted parts with acrylics and sealed with Modpodge.
