This Oni was born blind and hornless, and named Gikaku (フェイク鬼- ‘false Oni’). He was too embarrassing to keep after waiting so long for his birth, so a prosthetic horn (義角) was fused to his head and he was cast out. Now, Gikaku travels alone, appearing only in place of a person being expected. To see Gikaku is a terrible curse, and he is greatly feared. The fundoshi reads ‘Great curse (dai-kyō, 大凶)’ and ‘待人 (machibito) – a person being waited for’, based on Omikuji fortune terms.

When not making fun, weird kaiju, Sunguts took the time a few years back to make a vinyls of a pair of the secondary Walk Machine mecha from Xabungle. The ‘work’ mecha in Xabungle were all pretty goofy, so they make for great sofubi. Even the roll-cage frames are vinyl, after having had the inside parts cut out. Something I never realized until I got mine were that they also come with little DIY flesh vinyl pilot busts that you need to trim, and paint if desired. Obviously I painted them. The pilot busts are about a quarter of an inch tall, so I threw a little color on them to make them stand out.
This bad boy is one of my contributions to the July Monster Invitational Show at FOE. He’s dark and scary, and I went super technical on this one. Everything is Monster Kolor except the shiny blood drip detail work.
Partyball is Paul Kaiju’s contribution to the Monster Family line, and a super fun little sculpt. This custom will be at the FOE Monster Invitational Show in July. I continued my experimentation with mixed finishes and also tried something else in a fit of inspiration. I had been looking at Warhammer 40k models and was inspired to try out some more technical airbrushing to do glowing engraved symbols. Read the rest of this entry »
Vira Seijin hails from Ultra Seven and is totally silly looking. The sculpt screams ‘real plant’ to me, so I had at it on a flesh vinyl blank. This guy will be at the FOE Monster Invitational Show in July.
