[Inktober] Day 28: Am I pretty? by RavenDANIELS [Inktober] Day 28: Am I pretty? by RavenDANIELS
~ Inktober ~

Urban Legend:
 Kuchisake-onna (Slit Mouthed Woman)

     A once beautiful woman who was mutilated by her husband after he found out she had been cheating on him with several men. He used a sword to cut her mouth from ear to ear and shouted "Who will think you are beautiful now? this caused her death and she then came back as a malicious spirit.
    S
he is known to walk around wearing a surgical mask and coat. The woman will ask a potential victim "Am I pretty?" If they answer no, she will kill them with a pair of scissors. If they answers yes, she will pull away the mask, revealing that her slit mouth and ask "How about now?" If they answer no, she will cut her victim in half. If the person answers yes, then she will slit their mouth like hers. It is impossible to run away from her but you can confuse her with vague answers to give your self  enough time to escape. But its safer just to not travel alone in Japan.

This is so disturbing! I saw the thumbnail and thought it was creepy, but I felt compelled to click on it regardless. In a way, I'm drawn to creepy stuff like a moth to a flame, even though it often keeps me up at night.

My dialog with Kuchisake-Onna:

Kuchisake: Am I pretty?
Me: Yes
Kuchisake: 'removes mask' How about now?
Me: I heard about you, and I know that for what I'm about to say you'll cut my mouth, but I'm a honest person... Yes, you are beutiful... now come on, make the cut! bring the pain! Let's get this over with!

Great job!

Kuchisake-onna! It's very nostalgic because I'm Japanese and I've been hearing that urban legend. The first this story had been told was 1970's, but this urban legend is still told in people.
I recalled Ozzy Ozbourne by this image at first hahaha... very nice!

Oh this must have scared you a lot as a kid then! Yeah I heard that when doing some research on her, they even made sure people would walk home in groups back then right? (La Lechuza was the legend I heard a lot as a kid boy did that scare me lol)
Hahahahhaah the hair right? I totally see it xD Thank you!

In my childtime ('90s), the urban legend had already gone down, but I read it in books of ghost stories for children. Also I heard that in '70s some people made children walk home in groups actually.

Ah yup I heard that as well. It was serious in the 70s They actually did catch a lady with a slit mouth, well she got hit by a car or something. They suspected her of chasing children pretty crazy!
