轆轤首 (Rokurokubi) (1/2)

Artist: Daniel Brown

轆轤首 is a Japanese ghost whose neck can stretch out, usually at night, allowing it to spy on or scare people. I've been reading about yokai lately and I thought I'd make a couple in origami. The other one should show up soon.

This design is basically a kite base with the tall part thinned out and the bottom, wider part wrapped around to make the body.
