Ippon-datara
一本ダタラ (いっぽんだたら)
One-Legged Blacksmith
This shy monster is rarely encountered by humans, and all that is usually seen of it is a single line of huge footprints about a foot across, winding through the snowy mountains of Wakayama prefecture. Nonetheless the ippon-datara is thought to be a large human-like beast with one leg and one eye. It is also rumored to be an expert blacksmith(not sure about this part it may be a modern invention,but I like it), or perhaps the ghost of one.
Here's my Ippon-dattara action figure complete with his blacksmithing accessories.I sculpted his head from clay,and for the body I used a CTVT torso,leg,and arms,which I sculpted over with the clay.I sculpted all his Blacksmithing accessories from clay as well(the blade he's working on is tinfoil which I painted and sealed).All sculpted parts were painted with acrylics and sealed with modpodge.
