Kasa Obake (傘お化け, "umbrella ghost"), or Karakasa Obake or Karakasa Kozou, are a type of Tsukumogami, a folk legend about a form of Japanese spirit that originate from objects reaching their 100th year of existence, thus becoming animate. Karakasa in particular are Spirits of Parasols (umbrellas) that reach the century milestone. They are typically portrayed with one eye, a long tongue protruding from an open mouth, and a single foot, generally wearing a geta.

Dude, I know I rarely comment on your stuff because I never know what the heck it is I am looking at, but let me just say your creativity is off the scale, and your stuff rocks. It's always weird, and I love weird.
