Mystery Adoptables Set 16 [SOLD OUT] by Following-The-Rabbit Mystery Adoptables Set 16 [SOLD OUT] by Following-The-Rabbit
It's been a while since I made an adoptables set... so I'm a little rusty. I forgot how much fun it was to make them, though!
This set is inspired by Japanese ghosts/urban legends/spirits. This includes the Yuki Onna, Kuchisake-Onna, Banchō Sarayashiki, Hikiko, and Onryō. Keep in mind, while some of these adopts were based directly based upon the original legends, I just mostly used the original stories as a basis for what the adopt would look like. Also, I may have used the Japanese legends for inspiration, but you are welcome to give these adopts new names and back stories accordingly. :)

Happy adopting! :heart:


1) Leave me a comment saying which one you would like to adopt; you may also give them a name, and other miscellaneous character information (Age, bio, etc.)
2) Once I confirm that you can adopt him/her, send me the points for the adoptable.*
3) You may bid higher than the price range given
4) Once adopted, you are free to use the character however you want. All I ask is that I'm given credit for the original design. (In this case, since they are mystery-box adoptables, their revealed designs will be uploaded later). Also, feel free to tweak their design if there's something you don't like about it, or add anything you feel would make the design stronger.
5) It's not required, but greatly appreciated, to leave a comment with a theme for adoptable sets you would like to see.

*some adoptables have a price range, rather than a set price. You are welcome to pay anywhere within this range.

After you place your bid, I give the comment one to 24 hours to be "topped" by another bet. If it isn't topped, I will ask that you send the points, and the design is yours to use. If it is topped, I will give the other commentor six to twelve hours to be topped, and I will ask the original commentor if they would like to top the new bet. This will go on until one of the commentors gives up, or the maximum in the points range is reached.

About "Alice's pick(s)"
For every new set of adoptables I make, I will put a yellow bullet (:bulletyellow:) by the gender of one or more adopts. This means they're my favorite(s) in the given set, and the one(s) that I feel look the best. Be sure to keep this in mind when adopting!

Drawing Discount
If you draw a picture of your newly adopted character(s) after the designs are revealed, I will return 10% of the points you paid.
First, if you won the auction, pay your bid points in full, or autobuy. After all the adopts are all bought, I will reveal the designs. You will be given a week to draw the character(s) you adopted. They don't need to be full, completed pictures; they can be sketches if you want! All I ask is that you put effort into the drawing. Send the drawing to me via note or comment, and I will return 10%of the points you payed.

What is the story behind Bancho-Sarayashiki and Onryo
Following-The-Rabbit Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Bancho-Sarayashiki, if my memory doesn't fail me, is the ghost of a maid that counts plates. She was killed because one plate was missing from a set of ten, so her spirit still counts the nine plates, screaming in place of ten.
Onryo is just a term for a vengeful spirit, I think. It's been a while since I made these, so I can't really remember well.

Okay the first one reminds me of Okiku and the second sounds just like a stereotypical wraith
