The Kappa In Japanese Folklore

  • Kappas are legendary creatures that inhabit the rivers and waterways of Japan. They have beaked noses, shells on their back and a depression on their heads that holds water. Kappa are mischievous troublemakers. Their pranks range from the relatively innocent, such as loudly passing gas or looking up women's kimonos, to the more troublesome such as drowning swimmers and eating children. They feed on their victims by sucking their liver though their anus. They love cucumbers and if you write your name on a cucumber and throw it in the river, the kappa may be appeased by your gift and allow you to swim in peace.

I think you should definitely submit this and doing it in linen with a really gorgeous, lush, expensive fabric choice would give it a perfect, Banana Republic-esque look to it. Absolutely spot-on for books like that. Making something that will appear on the Hampton shores come summer.


I wanted to submit something again too, but I've been doing nothing but moving for the past six weeks, so I might not get to it! You might also consider making your dress in some of that neat double gauze stuff, I've been wanting to try it.
