Tikbalang [Updated]


So far, the general form is done, but the hard part is adding the unique embellishment, raiments or armor fit for the mighty Tikbalang. 

I posted a blurry cellphone video and photos of this  on a previous entry  http://screaming-mango.blogspot.com/2012/08/workplace-habitat.html

The Tikbalang has been a staple among horror stories, stuff you hear at campfires and when elders want to keep the rowdy children in line. But looking at what we had on books and films, there's so much to explore about this wonderfully frightening creature.

My purpose is to add a bit more myth and a deviation from the stereotype, gathered from old, childhood memories and what could be found on an otherwise dwindling supply of written lore on the subject.
