Pins from UT_Only! These are definitely treasures… the Napstablook especially! I was so choked when I missed my chance to buy this figure, so when I found the pin I FLIPPED OUT! I think it’s one of my new favourites! <3 <3
I also adore the Gaster Hands. The hands (Gaster, Frisk and Sans) and the Frisk Heart are gifts from Kari, who I was able to become friends with :))
I bought this in Korea at an Undertale convention. Please don’t ask me how to buy it - all of the goods were made special for the convention, most things were pre-order and/or sold out at the convention and if they didn’t they’re very hard to buy. Sharing just to spread the love <3
Nearly two years and thirty cribs later, and KCN is coming at you again with another cadre of demons from the ever-fertile Lesser Key of Solomon, as interpreted by our pal Louis Breton, and then again by series artist and blog namesake Kazuma Kaneko (also our pal). And while our first set was chosen to highlight some of the more borderline cases out there, here we’ll be taking a look at a few of the less embellished designs in the roster… and Purson.
OROBAS: Orobas is one of the closer calls here, and perhaps Kaneko simply thought it unnecessary to alter the functional simplicity of Breton’s original. He’s certainly more ecstatic in the latter portrayal, but otherwise we’re not looking at much divergence that couldn’t be chalked up to personal style: the guy is just sort of a horse-person, arms spread-eagle, and it works.
BARBATOS: Kaneko takes a few more liberties with Barbatos, but in service of accomplishing a more “demonic” look, replete with signifiers such as bat-like wings, curled horns, and a pointed devil’s tail. These have the effect of making the duke look a bit less like a gentleman beleaguered by a ghostly brass section, all while retaining his dapper style.
GEMORI: Gemori is likewise a near match, though she may not look it at first glance. Kaneko deviates little from Breton in terms of the meat and bones of the design, adjusting details of the dress (and perhaps the breed of camel employed) while maintaining distinctive cues such as the horns popping out from a headdress with trailing veil.
PURSON: Pruflas/Purson is perhaps not the most exciting fare the Goetia has to offer, but Kaneko’s additions of a garish palette and luxurious mane were apparently not the trappings of a compendium regular. A grasped serpent and bizarre helmet likewise enter the fray, but otherwise Breton’s template is left essentially untouched.
