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 2nd Ippon-dattara action figure complete with his blacksmithing accessories.I sculpted his head from clay over a CTVT old man head,and for the body I used an Emce torso,leg,and arms(I dyed all the parts black with Rit),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.

Thanks AP.It brings me much joy to create them and to share them and the ancient stories of the folkloric characters which they are based on.
