T is for Tsukumogami

My alphabeasts this week: Tsukumogami, what a name!

Something this crazy could only come from Japanese Mythology. Basically a Tsukumogami is an intimate object that has been around for a 100 years and happens to gain sentience. In old Japanese legends it was said that if an object survived for that long it would gain self awareness and turn into a trickster spirit of sorts. Fun little guys and it can be anything! So I naturally chose a clothes dresser, who doesn't love dressers?

I was listening to the Mother 3 sound track when I did this since it seemed so oddly fitting.
