Sotoba by Midorii-kiri Sotoba by Midorii-kiri
I made one of the Undertaker's fence posts (sotoba). Took me two days to get that lettering deciphered and then sketched in. I sorta had to guess on the kanji since the pictures that actually show the letters aren't exactly clear.

Dad helped me the shape. <3

Made from pinewood and painted with black acrylic.

It is a Buddhist grave marker, not a fence post. Nice work tho.

I know what it is. It was a joke.

Didn't really have anything indicating it was a joke but sure.

Have you by any chance translated the kanji? I would like to know what those characters mean since I am going to make a sotoba for my own cosplay

I had to make several guesses on most of the symbols because all the reference pictures are so tiny, but I'll give you what I've got. The very top I have no idea, the smaller lettering I made up because there was no possible way I could decipher that. I used the hirigana for shinigami and kyonshi (more or less living dead in Japanese). Then from top to bottom it's, South, Nothing, Big, Master, Continue, Shine, and Gold. The last I couldn't find. Hope that helps!
