Custom #:26192

The Inugami (犬神, lit. "dog god")of Japanese folklore is a type of shikigami(式神)Yokai, similar to a familiar spirit, resembling, and usually originating from, a dog, and most commonly carrying out vengeance or acting as guardians on behalf of the inugami-mochi, or "inugami owner". Inugami are extremely powerful and capable of existing independently, as well as turning on their "owners" and even possessing humans.My Inugami action figure represents an Inugami that has taken possession of his former Onmyoji(Japanese Sorcerer) Master.
I Sculpted his Akita/Dog head from clay over a CTVT bruce head,I also sculpted his Sandals and tall eboshi cap from clay as well.I used a CTVT repro wolf-man body.I used an Emce startrek Keeper robe for his onmyoji robe.I painted all the sculpted parts with acrylics and sealed with ModPodge sealant.

Cool,thanks Patraw.I will check that site out.I'm always looking for more Yokai ideas to turn into action figures.

I've visited the site you gave the link to in the past and have found it useful. This is a page devoted to an old SNES Yokai game you might find interesting, as it has a diverse selection of Yokai game sprites on it (you get more info on each creature on mouse-over).

I've never heard of this particular type of Yokai before, so I'm glad you provided the background info. The wizard/sorcerer look is an interesting one for a monster. Pretty cool looking Mego beastie!
