A Step Back

I didn't go over the body. Boy am I rushing ahead of myself! Look, there I go...

Cutting out the body

There is a trick to this, which I learned at the Puppet Rampage...the back of one's hand needs more space than the front. Who knew? Thus...the body has three parts:

Three apart

Which then comes together so:

Three together

All in all, a roomier style.

But here's a trick of my own...some puppeteers use wires, but I find boning to be much better:

Boning along the bottom

Why? Because it does the same job as a wire but it is lighter and much easier to pack.

Yes...he needs hair:

Cutting the hair

All the pictures I found always show the red oni with hair at least on the back of the head with the bald samerai forehead. This really does set him apart from the western devil. A good thing to be sure!
