I decided to try my luck at making a shuriken for the Mabinogi contest to win a Nine-Tailed Fox pet <3
(I’m more than likely not going to win, but it was fun to make so I don’t mind)
Materials: 1. Paper 2. Part of a tissue Chinese Opera kite 3. Embroidery thread 4. Beads 5. Mat boarding
I chose that specific Opera mask because the colors are important representations of what I believe makes a good Ninja: The color red is for loyalty - so the character is a loyal and honorable one. The color black is for honesty and integrity. The color white shows an artistic streak.
One night, woman is riding home from job at tractor factory. When she got on there were 5 rows of seats empty but in last row were three people. Being friendly Soviet woman, she went and sat across from these three strangers. She settled down and looked up to see woman sitting opposite her staring at her. So she got out her copy of the Communist Manifesto and started to read but every time she looked up woman was still staring. The train pulled into the next station and man got on. He looked up and down the carriage, looked at women and people opposite her and came and sat next to her. As train left station, man is leaning back and saying quietly in her ear “If you know what is good for you, you will get off at the next station with me”. Woman is not scared because she is brave Soviet and plans to get off at next station to report strange man to the authorities. The next stop comes up and she leaves the train with this man. The man says “I did not mean to scare you but I had to get you off that train. I am a doctor and the woman sitting opposite you was dead and the two men either side were propping her up.”
Woman is reporting doctor to KGB for being coward and he is sent to reeducation camp. Dead body is common on Russian trains and no true Soviet would be afraid.
