UPDATE March 17, 2021: Another death. Waiting for a coffin to be delivered. Funeral the 21st. Unlikely to be streaming for a few weeks.


Update: March 27, 2021: It's not even been a week since the funeral, and now there is another death and another funeral.


UPDATE April 5, 2021: There are still no streams, as, we've now a another (a 3rd) funeral to prepare for.

And that is now 3 deaths in our family, in the past 2 weeks.

This 3rd death hits hard, because it was Pippi.

Our family has now had 13 deaths since March 2020.

April 10, 2015, 12 children were kidnapped.

May 15, 2015, the heads of 10 of them were nailed to my door.

August 24, 2020, one was found still alive. he was just 4 years old when she was kidnapped, but she remembered us, even though 5 years had passed.

August 25, 2020, Pippi came home, but her condition was not well. She had been tortured the entirety of the 5 years she had been held hostage. She was missing limbs and covered with scars, had broken bones many years not set, and suffered serious damage to many of her internal organs. That she was alive at all, in her condition, was a miracle. Doctors had little hope of her survival and she was sent home with Hospice care.

Pippi had cancer in her eye and needed surgery for it, which she was scheduled to have, shortly before she was kidnapped.

In the years they had her, not only did they torture her, but her cancer went untreated and spread to her brain.

By the time she was returned to us, her cancer had reached an inoperable state, so we knew she did not have much time left.

Had her cancer been treated, back when she was a toddler, she probably would have reach adulthood.

She died only 8 months after her return.

Another child, to cry out from the grave, for Etiole's vengeance upon her murderers. Another victim of evil men, who will stoop to no ends, to bury the crimes they committed 50 years ago.  Drug lords. Opium growers. Heroine dealers. Selling little girls 4 to 8 years old for sex to priests. They only care about money.

All hail the mighty tourist ass. Millions come to Old Orchard Beach every year, for one thing and one thing only: heroine. They sell their drugs to the tourists under the pier and off the balconies of that giant motel. Than drag little girls to the bedrooms of the condominiums on Smithwheel Road, behind the school. And any child who dares open their mouth and beg for help, gets tossed in the GooseFare Brooke Ravine.

Bastard drug lords. They've been doing this for 50 years, and the town hall and the police department, turn a blind eye to it, because they get paid $6million a year to not report it to the newspapers, when the body of another child washes down the ravine, into the gulley to be spit out in the ocean. No fewer than 5 bodies are found every summer, but how often does it get in the news?

The corruption of this fucking town needs to end.

Yet another dead at the hands of these criminals who run our town.

How long will the residents continue to turn a blind eye to what is happening in our town.

How many more children will you let them kill, before you stand up to them?

Another child is dead and no one in this town cares. So long as they get their money from the tourists. The blood of another murdered child screams from the graves, begging for justice. Tick tock, tick tock, so begins, yet another of Etiole's 7 year clocks.

This is why there were no/to few streams from May 2020 until now.

May 2020, after 4 years of not hearing from them at all, the FBI returned with a lead, which led to Pip's discovery a few weeks later in August.

Because of the nature of the situation, I could not talk about it, to tell you why streams had stopped.

The kidnappers, were enraged that we had recovered Pip, and that is when the attacks started up again on my home and family September 2020.

Pip's condition continued to grow worse, and she died April 5, 2021.

She was only 10 years old.

This is what it means, to not be white in America.

White men, won't even give a child the chance to grow up.

This is what white people do, to none white families like mine.

We are Gypsies with Jewish blood, for that alone we are hunted like animals.

What the men of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, did to my family, will never be forgotten or forgiven.

#If you have any information on the kidnappers or the murders...

#FBI Agent Andy Drewer out of the Portland, Maine FBI office is in charge of the of the April 10, 2015 kidnapping of my 12 children by 14 Ku Klux Klan men who invaded our home and the subsequent May 15, 2015 murder of 10 of the 12 whom had their heads nailed to my front door. If you have information about the case, give it to him not me. He can be reached @ +1-(207)-774-9322 

Have you forgot the extent of the damage these people did, all because, they wanted to dig up my land and removed bodies buried there, before my house builders found that barrel of bones?

Have you forgotten that 7 town hall workers, 5 public works men, a blond woman, her bald son, and her red haired sister Kendra, and 14 police officers, all lead by a man they referred to as "Mark who needs no last name" were the ones 

I name every one of them, except for the ring leaders: blond woman, her bald son, her sister Kendra, and her husband "Mark who needs no last name". I don't know who those 4 are. I'd never seen any of them, other than the Kendra woman before, and I only knew her fro her attacks beating me up at Panera in 2009, 2010, and 2013.

I can name every one of the others, because all I have to do is go to the Old Orchard Beach town hall and police department website, and their are their faces.

With the exception of blond woman, her bald son, her sister Kendra, and her husband "Mark who needs no last name", every one else involved was government official who works for the state of Maine vis the Old Orchard Beach Town Hall, the Old Orchard Beach Police Department, or the Old Orchard Beach Public Works.

And what exactly did they do?

August 8, 2013 they drove a backhoe over my house. That same backhoe drove over my previous house on the same land April 2007. That same backhoe drove over my poultry barn and horse stables July 2001. July 2001 was the first attack.

March 2015 was the the massive attack, with an entire fleet of trucks, and drove over the Church of the Holy Rhinstone, a church that stood on my land, my garage which is why I no longer have a garage to put my car in, my 2 sheds both of which had my tractors and other garden/crop machinery in them at the time. And of course the razing of the land, the cutting down of the apple orchard - the VERY apple orchard planted in 1530 that this town was named after... he actual "old orchard" of Old Orchard Beach... the very original trees - huge massive apple trees over 400 years old. The grape vineyards, the cherry trees, the pears trees. 

April 10, 2015, they returned, 4 police officer held me a gun point, while 10 other police officers held my children down with long poles with metal wire strangle loops on the end, and beat their faces in with cinder block bricks, knocking out every one of their teeth, breaking their jaws... POLICE OFFICERS DID THAT... while men they referred to as "Mark who needs no last name" and "Dan" stood there and told the police officers what to do, how to beat them, while "Mark who needs no last name" boldly bragged that he paid the Old Orchard Beach police $6million dollars to do this.

May 15, 2015... the heads, hands, feet, and intestines of my children were nailed to my door. Later that same day police officer W. W. came to my home begging for forgiveness and claimed that men he referred to only as "Mark and Dan" were holding his beloved mother-in-law hostage and torturing her, and he helped in the April 10, 2015 attack, only to save her life and get her back. He claimed he had no prior knowledge of what was going to happen, claiming that he'd been told they were only going to "scare" us. He said he had not expected anyone to get hurt, he had not known my children would be tortured and kidnapped, he had not known they were going to be murdered. He said he was scared for his life and lives of his family. And he said: "They form a small army, our department doesn't have enough man power to stop them, and every one in this town is too scared to fight back. You don't know what's going on. And I think they mixed you up with someone else. They didn't know you were the owner of this land. They didn't know that was your motorhome. They thought someone else owned this place. It wasn't even your family they were after. You were the wrong target. You don't know who these people are. What they've done to our families. This is the actual Mafia. The real deal. I'm so sorry. This is the address they sent us to. But they had a different name as the owner. This wasn't supposed to happen. They were after someone else. I'm so sorry. I couldn't let my family died. And now yours is dead instead. This wasn't supposed to happen."

June 19, 2016... I did a very specific livestream. You see... A., D., B., and T. in the 1970s and 1980s, were in the habit of dragging big black trash bags into the forest, crossing my land to do it, and dumping those bags into the Goosefare Brook Ravine. In 1983, 3 snuck into Etiole's swamp and planted 3 acres of Marijuana. Someone found it and called the police, I don't know who... it was Maine's largest drug raid for decades. Many, many millions in plants where dug up and removed from Etiole's swamp. A few weeks later A, & D,s 10 year old daughter ran into my yard, touched my car on a dare from other children - the 1964 Dodge 330 former Old Orchard Beach police car, known by Stephen King fans as the REAL Christine, The World's Most Haunted Car... than jumped her bike, and sped down the road, as fast as she could, head on into a car coming the other way. She died instantly, he brain shattered all over the end of my driveway, and her mother A responded by the Battle of 458 - the biggest mass shooting ever in Maine history, that ended up with 3 Gypsy clans and 2 police departments, in a shoot out between 70+ adults all armed with guns. One of my cousins, an 8 year old boy, standing 3 feet from me, had his eye shot out by one of the bullets. While A ran around the street screaming: "FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shot another child. 

"FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shoot another child. 

"FOUR! FIVE! EIGHT!" than shoot another child. 

THOSE are the 31 children, whose bones were sawed up and tossed into the GooseFare Brook Ravine... yes, that DOES mean, police officers KNEW those children were there and covered it up.  And I witnessed that entire event.

And THAT is WHY... when police officers murdered my family in 2015, I did a livestream, walking to the ravine, to show the world, where those bones were... because I'm sick and tired of the police corruption in this fucking town, and those sawed up bones of 31 children are PROOF of what this town government is like.... as are the heads of my children that were nailed to my door.

At the end of The Battle of 4-5-8... A. took 2 gas cans and poured them all over the big dome house, than set a match to it, and no one knew, why when she did her brother B., started running, jumped in his robin egg blue truck and backed down the driveway, hit Portland Ave doing 70 and didn't stop driving until the high speed chase caught him in CT... oh but we knew before he was out of sight, why he started running... the dome house went up like Hiroshima into a mushroom cloud that could be seen across the entire state... turns out there was a Meth lab in that house.

June 19, 2016... the livestream of the bones went viral, it's what made my YouTube channel suddenly explode overnight... and police officer W.W. upset, by the fact that, the livestream included the entire police call and response, and that response was to laugh and do nothing... fed up with the corruption in his department, he forwarded that livestream VOD to the FBI, and the FBI arrived in Old Orchard Beach, to dig up the Reclaim Blueberry Plains, and all hell broke lose in this town, as most of the police officers suddenly found themselves arrested. An entire new police force from out of state was brought in to replace the long time officers who had proven they could be trusted to uphold the law. Many town hall officials and public works employees also found themselves arrested by the FBI.

June 26, 2016... barely a week later... the blond woman and the red haired Kendra woman showed up at my workplace, Scarborough WalMart, and tried to kill me, yet again... these are the same 2 woman who attacked me with golf clubs at Southern Maine Community College November 14, 2013... they left dead in 2013, I was paralized for 5 months. It took me 18 months to relearn to walk. I was out of the wheel chair, and I was without a walker, I was without a cane. I had almost fully covered from their November 14, 2013 attack with golf clubs... June 26, 2016, this time they attacked with shopping carts, and I'm now crippled for the rest of my life. They shattered 3 vertebra this time and it can't be operated on. I had to relearn to walk a second time, and I'm not yet recovered now in 2021. In 2013 they drove away in the 4 door white pickup truck. In 2016 they drove away in a gold Volvo SUV station wagon.

That blond woman and her red haired Kendra sister, they are wanted by the FBI for attempted murder of me and they are also wanted in questioning for being suspected of also being the murderers of my children.

I don't know who these 2 women are.

The blond woman shows up my driveway frequently, screaming and yelling, sometime accompanied by a small child, about 5 years old, that she pulls behind her in a red radio flyer wagon. She looks to be about 60 or 70. She often wears a denim button down shirt and jeans. She's prone to yelling at passing cars, while pointing up my driveway, and saying: "There's EelKat, she tried to kill my husband."

I've never tried to kill anyone, so accusation is baffling at best.

She seems to think I know who she is, and has made the claim, that "I was that brat in school"... the red haired Kendra woman, sometimes with her, claims to be her sister, also appears to be 60 to 70 and also seems to think I know who she is, and frequently says: "You bullied me in school, but no more, I'm Kendra SilverMander it's my turn to shine."

They BOTH make the claim they went to school with me, and yet, I never went to school, a well documented fact... because I'm the child the FBI rescued what the news media called "Maine's House of Horrors". I was locked in a cage when I was 8 years old. I was let out on Sundays, to go to church, and not allowed to speak or make eye contact with anyone, and this was only done infrequently, whenever church goers asked what happened to that girl you had". I was 31 years old when the FBI arrived, because of Heaven's Gate having killed 39 people, and my uncle being one of the members and self proclaiming himself as the leader of Heaven's Gate after Applewhite's death. The FBI was investigating the murder of 39 people in California, and had no idea they'd find children in cages in Maine as a result.

So you see, when the blond woman and her Kendra sister, make the claim they went to school with me and I was the class bully who beat them up, this is easily proven false, because the time period when I should have been in school, I was locked in a cage, being tortured by my sadistic uncle Bruce.

Also, they are in their late 60s to mid 70s... making them older than my parents, so how could I have been in school with them, even if I had gone to school? At best I would have been starting pre-school the year they would have been graduating high school.

These things they say about school, only further agrees with what police officer W. W. said May 15, 2015, when he made the claim, they had gotten me mixed up with someone else.

July 2016, a month after the shopping cart attack... yet another Old Orchard Beach police officer arrived, this one accompanied by 2 Biddeford officers, who had been former OOB officers... these 3 officers, had a vastly eye opening story to tell me.

They had been called to Old Orchard Beach, to my farm, to arrest me, a call made to them, by a man named Mark, whom one of these officers, claimed was his brother in law. This Biddeford officer, said he requested to transfer ot of Old Orchard Beach department years ago, because his sister (whom he claimed he suspected, but could not prove was the blond woman whom had attacked me at WalMart) was quote "trying to control the town" he said "treats Old Orchard Beach like a dynasty, thinks she's a duchess, has severe mental disorders, and thought she could buy the police department". He went on to say, she got in with the real Mafia years ago and went to her head, and now she thinks she IS the Mafia and most of Old Orchard Beach's business owners, especially the motel owners are scared shitless of her, because they believe her claim to be Mafia. He went on to say, she's not Mafia, but she's good at convincing people she is and stated "I wouldn't murder beyond her. She'd do it just to prove she is Mafia." He said he transferred out of OOB department to Biddeford department because he was fed up with how easy it was for her to get every officer to do anything she asked. He said "the corruption in that department runs deep; don't cross her or any officer she controls; they WILL kill you and every around you. You don't know who her husband is. He doesn't just control that town, he controls half the state."

What he was telling me was bizarre on extremes, but even more bizarre was the live feed radio call, that he had me listen too, as it was happening, on my farm in Old Orchard, while I was at my dad's house in Biddeford.

He said: "The Old Orchard Department called me, asked me to come over here. Buddy Will wanted to prove you were not in Old Orchard and that Mark has you mixed up with someone else. That fucking bastard is crying wolf and trying to frame you, we can prove it right now. We are fucking fed up WolfBoy."

He turned on his radio, so I could hear. A what I heard... a man whose voice I do not recognize, yelling at a Officer W.W. and saying: 

"That is Wendy, arrest her now! That is EelKat. She tried to kill me."

While officer W.W. and another officer, told the man: "his isn't Wendy. We have officers with her right now. Who tried to kill you? Wendy? Or THIS woman right here?"

"This woman right here! This is EelKat I tell you! Arrest her! What do you think I pay you for! You aren't allow to defy me! I own this town! You are my slaves. I command you to arrest her!"

W.W.: "This isn't EelKat. This isn't Wendy. I've known her for years. And right now, she's on the other side of the state. With 3 officers, listening to you right now. You are NOT the law. We've had it with you. You don't own me. And you've mixed her up with someone else. You've been harassing the wrong damned person. You dare call us about Wendy ever again, and I will personally arrest you for false reports, than I'll tell them everything. You'll never see the outside a prison for the rest of your life when I get done with you. You fucking leave this woman alone. You destroyed her life, because you couldn't tell her apart from someone else."

I used to aqua jog, mountain climb, horseback riding, and I hiked 13 miles a day. And in the blink of an eye, that lifestyle was taken away, and every day was struggle, just to sit up and breath, with no hope of ever walking again. I defied doctors. It's been 8 years and I can move around the house by holding on to things and I now can walk again, at the moment only short distances outside with a cane, and the hope is to continue to improve. I still have a long road of recovery ahead. But I'm walking again, something that 8 years ago, doctors said would never happen. 

My farm was razed.

My family was murdered.

I was 5 months paralysed, and had to relearn to walk. It was 8 years ago and I'm not yet fully recovered due to 3 inoperable vertebrae and hip dysplasia. November 14, 2013, 10PM, at WalMart, while putting bags of groceries in the back seat of my car, I was attacked by 3 rapists armed with metal golf clubs, who left me parallelized, in a wheel chair, broken spine, broken hip, broken pelvis, broken knees, serve nerve damage to my left side limiting the use of my left hand, my bladder incontinent from nerve damage, they left me for dead, and I had doctors telling me I would never walk again.

There's more that has happened. A lot more. The thousands of gallons of sewage they pumped into my motorhome in 2015. The cats. the Ptarmagin cats. World famous groups of cats. You remember them. If so, you remember what these people did to those cats. Poisoned. All dead the same day. 12 cats. Dead to what the vet described as: "enough poison to kill a great dane". My horse, she had her head beat in with a rock. My bantam roosters... 70 pet roosters, hung by their necks in rope nooses in my rose bushes.

All because this man, this mystery Mark, whose last name seems to be known to the police but is still unknown to me and man whom I've never seen or met - he keeps his face covered whenever he shows up... mistook me for someone else... and police officers and town hall workers and public work employees.

Welcome to Old Orchard Beach... this is NOT the way life should be, you know it.

What these people did to me, should never have happened, and according to the police, it's been happening for 50+ years to hundreds of people, hundreds of families, in this town, and every one is too scare to talk about it or fight back to stop it. That NEEDS to change.

The corruption in our town, needs to stop... but it won't end, until every last person who is being harassed by these people stand up, put their foot down, and say enough is enough, we ain't gonna take this any more.

We the people of Old Orchard Beach need to take back our town.

NOTE: Chat is set to emote only on my Twitch channel and my personal contact information has been removed from my website and every place else, due to the HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of false reports of "information", along with vile hateful memes about the murder of my family being sent to me by trolls who think mocking the murder of my family is funny.

Lord Sesshomaru VS Historical Accuracy: Info On Making A Historically Accurate Costume

Info On Making A Historically Accurate Costume

A common question asked by Sesshomaru CosPlayers, is: "Is is possible to make this costume historically accurate?". While the common answer is a resounding "No!", I say otherwise. It can be done, if you have the time and the patience to make a careful study of Asian history.

Since I am making just such a costume, I must therefor look into such research, and so, I have made this lens to share my findings with those who wish to do the same. The point of this lens, is to look at what Rumiko Takahashi wrote (and drew) about Lord Sesshomaru in the manga and compare it with actual history. Not an easy feat actually, as her fantasy story strays greatly from actual history.

Originally part of my Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens, this topic is now a lens of it's own, because it expanded to long to remain as a part of another lens.

Instructions for Making a Lord Sesshomaru Costume

Originally part of my Lord Sesshomaru Costume lens, this topic is now a lens of it's own, because it expanded to long to remain as a part of another lens.

  • Need help creating a Lord Sesshomaru costume? You've come to the right place. I am currently in the process of making a Lord Sesshomaru costume. No idea when...

What I Am DoingOr the Insanity of Using a Fictional Character For The SCA

In light of the onslaught of flaming and hate emails I have gotten because of this lens (due to several Shess fans being angry over my "changing" my costume and making it historically accurate as opposed to comic book accurate), I am now adding this "intro" to attempt to explain to his other fans what it is I am doing here. I hope that by adding this section, it'll clear up any confusion you had, and help you to understand that I am not changing the character himself.

For those who just saw the mention of the SCA here and did a double take, yes, you did read that correctly. The SCA. That historical society known for it's outspoken rigidness of sewing every stitch of garb by hand and using only historically accurate methods, with historically accurate fabrics and in the end recreating actual reproductions of garments worn through out history.


The SCA which holds costume contests and judges you not on your creativity, but on your ability to create the most historically accurate garment possible.

You have to create an entire fictional person, write up their history, register their name and birthplace, and the year from which they currently live (any year up to 1599) , and than you must learn to eat what they eat, talk the way they talked, wear what they wore, right down to historically accurate underwear... (now there's an interesting thought, I wonder what Sessho wears under his kimono?)... they construct tents accurate to the character's time and place, and they spend a whole weekend or week living in them. Sword fights and joisting tormaments are often done with real sword and lances... and yes, horses, chickens and other animals are usually wandering around the grounds. The knights you see walking around are wearing 100% authentic armor some weighing in at more than 200lbs! This is the SCA. The SCA is living history at it's most extreme, and it is for this, that I am making my Sessho Maru costume. Now granted most SCAndians don't go all out extreme, because, well, extreme accuracy is expensive, and the average SCAndian is just looking to meet with a group of fellow history loving CosPlayers. The extremes in accuracy are pretty much limited to SCAndians looking to enter contents.

My Lord Sesshomaru costume is being made historically accurate, because when it is finished, I plan to do the unthinkable and enter it into an SCA sewing contest. Why is that unthinkable? Because Lord Sesshomaru is a fictional character. He never existed. And in the SCA, THAT is a major crime that will send the accuracy police running for the hills.

It is possible to enter a fictional character's outfit, if said fiction character's outfit is historically accurate. While Sessho isn't 100% accurate to history, he's pretty darn close, close enough for me to think I can pull something like this off. Wither or not I actually win the competition isn't the issue here, as much as just getting it entered. Of course I'd love to win, sure, but, you gotta be approved to be entered into the contest first. And that is my goal: to enter a fictional character into an SCA sewing contest, just to prove I can. I have already received criticisms from a few of the SCA's most strict members. Okay, that's cool, I expected as much, it was bound to happen.

Okay, so my project goes against everything they stand for. I get that. But you know what's really funny? You are not allowed to register an actual historical figure from history! You must BASE you character on a real person, but you can't be that real person. You must base you cloths on real cloths that were really worn, but you can't make the actual outfits worn by famous peoples. WHAT! You can ONLY enter fictional characters! Ooooh the irony of it all! It is to laugh.

Well, it's no secret I love history, esp Medieval history, and it's no secret I'm obsessed with Sessho Maru, so, it's the perfect project me which I'll just plan have fun doing for the next year (or two). Wither or not I can enter it in the SCA once it is finished, actually isn't all that important really, it's more me just wanting to try taking a fictional character and creating a costume that I'll love and love wearing.

And a final note in closing: No I am not a member of the SCA or any other group or organization. And no this "costume" that I am making is not a costume. I dress like this 24/7 and have done so for more than 20 years now. I do not own a shared of "normal" cloths, nor would I even consider wearing "normal" cloths. This "costume", when finished, shall be worn as part of my daily wardrobe, just like all of the other "costumes" which make up my daily street wear. I hope that my adding this section, helps to clear up whatever confusion people had about this and will put an end once and for all to the hundreds of nasty emails I have gotten since the creation of this lens.

Now, back to the lens. . .

Why I Wrote This:

Ah... like my Mokomoko lens, this lens has caused a minor outrage among Sessho fans. Oh well, such is life. Why have I written this lens? To inform others? Actually, no. I am making this costume right now. I am making this costume to SCA standards. In order to meet with the SCA approval certain guidelines must be followed. A character's date and place of birth must be known. Where they lived and when they lived there must be known. What they wore when they lived where they did, must be known. These things must be recorded and written down and submitted with the costume in question, when it is entered into a sewing compattiion. Why? Because the SCA does not judge you on creativity, like a CosPlay competition does. As I have said hundreds of times all across the internet now, what I am making is NOT a typical CosPlay costume. That fact can not be overstated. The SCA judges you on HISTORICAL ACCURACY.

In order for me to make sure that I am making my costume as historically accurate as possible, I must therefor trace Sessho Maru's history, what little we know of it, and cross reference it with ACTUAL HISTORY from REAL Medieval Japan. In other words I have to treat a fictional character as though he were a real historical figure, in order to make this costume.

In other words, if you get any benefit from this info, than good for you, but this is being written as a reference point for my own costume so, basically, this lens is like reading my fashion design notebook, as I take a fantasy outfit and compare it to what was worn by real men.

Also, this info is being written as I sew Sessho's pink court robes from the third movie, thus it is the third movie that has gone under much review here.

Why People Wore What They Wore: European Outfits vs Asian Outfits

In examining Sessho's outfit we must keep in mind that Sessho Maru lives in Medieval Japan. Medieval Japan had a very strict set of laws governing who could wear what and when they could wear it. Only certain people were allowed to wear certain styles and certain colors. Sumptuary laws were in effect for most regions at most times during Japan's history. They varied from year to year and place to place, but they basically were there all the time.

In Medieval Europe sumptuary laws were very different from Japan's sumptuary laws. In Europe sumptuary laws, said such things as only the rich could wear buttons, or shoes can't be any taller than this. They were simple and basic. In Japan however, everything from the cut of the cloth, to the length of the sleeves to the color of the dye to wither it was embroidered or not had significant meaning.

Think of cloths in Medieval Japan, as being like a European/American soldier's uniform. One star meant one rank, while a stripe and a star meant a different rank, and two stripes and no star was an even different rank, and so on. In America and Europe only soldiers wear rank on their sleeves. In Medieval Japan, every body wore their rank on their sleeves, in fact, it was the sleeves themselves that told you the most about a person: length, width, color, design, and design placement all had meaning. One look at a person's outfit told you their birthplace, family name, age, occupation, marital status, wither or not they were a virgin, what religion they belonged to, how much wealth they possessed, and anything else you could every want to know about them. It was not a case of, I think I feel like wear green today, it was, "Hello, nice to meet you, I'm wearing this shade of green because it tells you that I am . . ."

When Europeans/Americans look at a Medieval Japanese outfit, they rarely look at it and see it for what it is, because they are unaccustomed to wearing cloths that are anything other than a fashion statement. It is very difficult for them to grasp the concept of how these outfits were being worn, and as such it is easy to look at a character like Sessho Maru and not realize just what it is exactly that his cloths tell us about him. And actually, they tell us quite a bit.

This is a culture where everyone knew there place and no one wore anything unbefitting to their place on the social ladder. If we look at Sessho Maru and compare him to the real history of Medieval Japan, than we know in an instant that here is a man who if he is not on the top rung of the social ladder, than he's pretty darn close to it and is about to take over first place.

A Note About Historical Accuracy vs Lord Sesshomaru:

For those interested in making Lord Sesshomaru's outfit historically accurate, it should be noted that, if you attempt to do so, you will be taking an already difficult and advanced costume, and turning it in an extremely advanced, and very difficult project. You must keep in mind that as it is, Sesshomaru's outfits are NOT historically accurate and an attempt to make them so, means a complete redesign of the costume, and an end result that will look a bit different from what is seen in the books and on the show.

One of the problems with making Lord Sesshomaru's wardrobe historically accurate is his age, his history, and his lifestyle, all of which I shall look at and compare to real Medieval Japan.

Lord Sesshomaru

Historical Accuracy VS Sesshomaru's Age

  • First off his exact age is unknown. To determine his age we have to look at the information we are told and make an educated guess. Early in the series, Rumiko indicates the Sesshomaru is 250 years old. Than a few years later, we are told that he fought in a war 700 years in the past, making him at least that old. Even later in the series we are told that Sesshomaru is not a normal demon, but is some sort of immortal being and has been around for a very long time, with the mention of "thousands of years" being thrown into the conversation.

  • Samurai armies that attack Sesshomaru, come at him with rifles. We know that rifles were invented in 1557, and that the series tells us they were just recently invented. The series follows a time span of approximately 3 years. This dates the InuYasha series at being from 1557 - 1559, most of which taking place in 1558.

  • So, if we use that information in order to find a date, we come to the conclusion that Lord Sesshomaru was born at some point prior to 800 A.D. How far prior is unknown, because we do not know for certain how old he is.

  • Why is this important? Well, if you want to go the historically accurate road, than you are going to need to research, who was wearing what, and when they wore it, and than change Sesshomaru's outfit to match.

  • In researching the history of various elements of Lord Sesshomaru's outfits, we find that each item comes from a different time period in history, and from a wide range of cultures. Items that in real life history would not have been worn together. This posses problems for someone bent on historical accuracy, and gives you one of two choices:

  • 1) One you can instead study what a feudal lord of 1558 would have worn and make that outfit.

  • 2) You can go with #1, but assume you are dealing with a well traveled and quite eccentric fuel lord, and make each item historically accurate to their time period and culture, and than wear them all at once. This would be more accurate to staying in keeping with Lord Sesshomaru, but less historically accurate.

  • When we look at what Sesshomaru wears, and consider each item and when and where it should have been worn, we are reminded, that Sesshomaru is very, very, very old. At some point in history the item was in fashion and he started wearing it, but with humans fashions die quickly and new fashions replace them. Sesshomaru, though a fashionable creature in his own right, does not stay current with human fashions and apparently once he starts wearing something he likes to wear, well continue to wear it for centuries, even after the rest of the world had stopped wearing them centuries ago.

In other words, what we see Sesshomaru wearing by the time we see him in 1558, is a mish-mash of items he collected up over a period of many centuries and during his travels across Asia, and the result is a very out-moded, old fashioned, and eccentric outfit, that screams bohemian.

Inu No Taishou

Historical Accuracy VS Sesshomaru's Past History

While age posses a problem with Sesshomaru's costume being historically accurate, his lifestyle posses an even bigger problem. In looking at his wardrobe, we can come to only one conclusion: Sesshomaru is an anachronist. He wears cloths out of time and out of culture.

The biggest problem for the costumer, is that they head into this project assuming that because Sesshomaru comes from a Japanese series, that he must therefore be wearing Japanese cloths. This is the farthest things from the truth, however. Sesshomaru wears a Japanese kimono or kosode, and pretty much nothing else of his wardrobe is Japanese. To find the reason for this we must look into his life.

  • Rumiko tells us that Lord Sesshomaru took over his father's empire when his father died. She tells us that his father was the Ruler of the Western Lands, the title now belonging to Sesshomaru, and the reason we call him "Lord". Rumiko never actual tells us where the Western Lands are though, nor does she ever say if the Western Lands are even in Japan. Another fact of note here, to make it all even more confusing, is that Rumiko only tells us Sesshomaru is from the Western Lands in interviews, she never actually says this in either the manga or the anime. In both the manga and the anime based on it, we are never actually told any background history about Sesshomaru at all. Keeping in mind here, that Sesshomaru is only a very minor character seen at a rate of once in every 10 or 20 chapters, thus the meaning there is very little reason for Rumiko to ever write any history about him at all.

  • So, Rumiko told us that Sesshomaru hails from "The Western Lands", and off handed remark, which may or may not be considered true, depending on wither or not you include interviews with Rumiko as part of the series.

  • Well, for the sake of this essay we well assume that Everything Rumiko ever said in an interview is true to the series, and as such, we will assume that Sesshomaru does in fact hail from these so called "Western Lands". The trick now is to figure out which Western Lands it is that Rumiko was referring to.

  • At first we assume that The Western Lands are someplace in the Western side of Japan, but a closer study of the series, suggests otherwise. Let's look for a moment at InuYasha himself.

  • Throughout the series, InuYasha battles a wide variety of demons. Every chapter a new demon comes along that need vanquishing. Every once in a while a demon will show up, wearing an outfit, oddly familiar to Sesshomaru's. Each time a demon of this sort shows up they are greeted with discontent, and the question "You're from the continent, aren't you?". Miroku's sutras never work on these demons, because as he often says, he has to rewrite them in the native language from the continent. Through out the series, we see that the Japanese demons do not take a liking to any demon that came to the island from the continent. Keeping in mind here, that the only person who ever uses the word "Japan" is Kagome, because in the past the word was not yet known.

  • To clarify this, we must remember that in the series, Japan is always referred to as "The Island" while China is always referred to as "The Continent". Oddly in the anime, such Chinese or continent dwelling demons, are mentioned as coming from the "Western Lands".

  • Ah-Huh! Now we are getting somewhere.

  • A note here, that THIS is the only time the phrase "Western Lands" is ever actually used in the series, and that Sesshomaru was no where's near this episode in which the phrase was being used. So you see, again, the Western Lands thing is questionable at best, when used in regards to Sesshomaru, however, Rumiko once said it, so we are going to continue on with it.

  • Back again now to Sesshomaru and his odd mode of dress. When we go to the history books, and look through museums we see that much of Sesshomaru's outfit is not historically accurate for Japan. In order to find much of his outfit in the real world we have to look through history books of Chine rather than Japan. This makes for so very conflicting questions; namely : Why is a Japanese lord wearing a Chinese outfit?

  • Most of Sesshomaru's outfit is Chinese not Japanese. He looks quite out of place among the other Japanese characters, however, if we take into account that The Western Lands are in China and NOT Japan, makes his Chinese mode of dress, quite natural for him.

  • Here's another off thing: InuYasha and Sessomaru are supposedly Foo-Dogs. Very odd, because Foo Dogs are the guardians of imperial China. In fact, Dog Demon run ranpant in Chinese mythology, and yet, are almost non-existent in Japanese mythology.

  • Another thing to consider is this: InuYasha a half breed, is outcast for being a half breed, which is unusual in the series as many other half breed demons are fairly well accepted. Well, not accepted, but certainly not persecuted the way InuYasha is. Most half breed demons in the series are, half Japanese Demon and half Japanese Human. But looking at the general contempt for Chinese demons in the series, (who are always portrayed as being very evil, btw) we must ask the question: Is InuYasha not only half demon, but also half Japanese?

  • If the Dog Demon Tribe, as we have already determined, are from China than the attack on the palace now makes much more sence. We know that there was such a hatred for InuYasha, that the day of his birth, the empire revolted against their Dog Demon leader, stormed the palace, burnt it to the ground, and slaughtered everyone inside. Sesshomaru survived because he was not home when this happened, and InuYasha and his mother survived, because his father protected them so she could escape, but he died doing so. She took her only minutes old baby InuYasha and fled back to her homeland of Japan.

  • Also, note here, that the palace of InuYasha's father, was an exact replica of China's Forbidden City. Odd. Why are they living in what is clearly a Chinese and not Japanese palace?

  • Back to InuYasha's mother. We must ask why she fled back to her homeland, and why, the empire rose up against their leader for taken a Japanese Human as his second wife. It seems therefore more accurate to assume that The revolt was caused not by a demon marrying a human, but by a Chinese Demon marrying a Japanese Human.

Another thing to note, is that in real mythology, the tales of dog demons come from Chinese mythology, not Japanese mythology, thus making it even more logical (and historically accurate) to assume that Sesshomaru is Chinese rather than Japanese.

We now have an answer as to why Lord Sesshhomaru's outfits look so very Chinese. Now we must ask, how did he come to live in Japan, by the time of the InuYasha series?

Of course, there is the fact that while living in the Chinese looking palace, Sesshomaru was already wearing Japanese items with his Chinese items, so we question here, are the Dog Demons than Japanese, but for some reason left Japan to rule over China and than returned to Japan by the time of the manga time line?

Another thing we have to question is why does Sesshomaru have a pet dragon? Why does he seem to spend much of his time hunting down dragons. (He does this 5 times in the anime and even more in the manga). Why is this an issue? Well, Japanese are famous through out history for their shunning the Chinese belief in dragons. At no point in Japanese history, did the Japanese believe in dragons. At no point in Japanese history is there any mention of dragons. In China on the other hand, dragon legends run rampant. In the InuYasha series it is only Sesshomaru who has a pet dragon, only Sesshomaru who spends his time hunting dragons, and only in China and not Japan do we find dragons, so again, yet one more finger pointing to China.

It would all be so much easier if Rumiko had been clearer on what she meant by Western Lands. Oh well.

Lord Sesshomaru

Historical Accuracy VS Sesshomaru's Lifestyle

After InuYasha's birth, his father's death, and the destruction of the family palace, Sesshomaru took his pet dragon and set out on foot on a personal spiritual quest to become a more powerful demon than his father was. (His father have been the most powerful demon to ever exist.) Though Sesshomaru is said to be the most powerful demon alive, now that his father is dead, he is not satisfied with this and now seeks to make himself more powerful than his father was in order to gain the title of the most powerful demon ever. Oddly this quest seems to have effected what Sesshomaru wears.

By the time we see him in the InuYasha series, Lord Sesshomaru has been on his spirit quest for some 250 years, and in that time has picked up Portuguese and Mongolian influences into his mode of dress. We must assume that this is a result of his having spent time in Portugal and Mongolia at some point prior to his coming to Japan.

And thus brings us to the problem of creating an historically accurate version of Lord Sesshomaru's outfits.

To be historically accurate, we would have to assume we are dealing with a human not a demon, thus effecting the time span. We must also assume that we are dealing with a rather eccentric Chinese Lord, who has abandoned his empire to go on a quest, which lead him to live for some time in Portugal, and for another space of time in Mongolia, before finally arriving to settle down in Japan, where he now seeks to build himself a new empire.

Is this doable? Yes, but it requires a massive study of four separate cultures in order to pull it off. Historically, one would not have worn the mixed and matched pieces from such a wide range of cultures.

A final and rather interesting thing to note here, is that to make Lord Sesshomaru's outfits, just a bit more outlandish, we must also take into consideration the fact that he is wearing women's cloths and not mens cloths, and therefore to be historically accurate, you would have to study the women's clothing styles from history and NOT the men's clothing styles. This leads us to believe that Lord Sesshomaru is for some unknown reason a cross-dresser, which historically we have very little info on, as this was not a common thing. Because this is such a different topic, I have written yet another essay, devoted entirely to looking at the way Sesshomaru dresses, and why the evidence suggests that he is a cross dresser. You can that article that here:

  • Is Lord Sesshomaru A Crossdresser?
  • Okay, admit it, the first time you saw Lord Sesshomaru, you said to yourself: "What a hot chick!" and than fifty seconds later you found yourself saying: "OMG!...

From Cross Dressing To a Fan Girls Worst NightmareThe Implications of The Untouchable Demon Who Wears a Kato-suso Furisode and a Crescent Moon

Well, a while back, I had mentioned this in passing elsewhere, an off handed comment, not even a full sentence and the result was ... uhm ... interesting? YIKES! Rabid Sessho lovers watch out, you are so not going to like this. I will write this and than I will go hide.

Okay, looking at Sessho's kimono, unraveled some interesting results. Sessho's kasode (kimono) is of the early Momoyama style called kato-suso. Unlike decorations of the earlier periods, which were painted on or dyed, the designs on a kato-suso are completely and 100% hand embroidered. What this means is that Sessho's kimono is made out of a delicate hand woven white silk, and the red bands (or purple or blue or pink depending on which one you are looking at) are completely filled in with embroidery.

The reason for this info being added here is that it helps us to farther date this character. In fact, it narrows are time line window by a bunch, because kato-suso like Sessho's were only worn for a very short time: specifically from about 1568 to about 1615, with there height of fashion being during the 1570's.

It is interesting to note here that while kato-suso were worn by many people, the white and red coloring worn by Sessho Maru was quite rare. Remember what I said earlier about garment styles and colors having meaning? Well here is where that meaning comes into full view and we learn why we address our beloved Sessho Maru as "Lord".

What we are looking at specifically is a Beni Kato-suso. Beni is short for benibana, the flower used to create the red dye, with was used to dye the threads used to embroider the red bands on the kimono. Beni was very expensive and very rare, only the very wealthiest could afford to wear something made out of beni and as such, very few wore this lavish color. A beni kato-suso made out white silk (as opposed to dyed silk) is even more rare. Most nobles had theirs made out of pale blue or gold silk. Sessho Maru's is pure white.

Sessho's kimono tells us that he is not only a very wealthy daimyo (feudal lord) but that he is very likely to be an astoundingly wealthy daimyo carrying a shogun title (lord of lords), otherwise he would not be wearing this kimono.

One odd thing to note here however. While the pattern and color of his kimono are accurate to the Momoyama time line, the cut of the sleeves are that of an Edo period Furisode. We have a time line discrepancy here. Normally a time line discrepancy would be an issue, but there is an even bigger issue at hand now and that is: Why is Sessho Maru wearing a furisode?

What is a furisode? It is any kimono/kosode that has a certain type of sleeve, namely the big long billowing sleeves that Sessho Maru wears. Furisode is the name for the type of sleeve, the sleeves being the part of the kimono that tells us the most about the person wearing the kimono and the odd thing here is that men do not wear furisode. Furisode are only worn by unmarried/virgin women. It's the thing that they wear to tell the world: "Hello, I'm as pure as driven snow, no one has ever touched me and you can't touch me either."

Don't start screaming yet, I've only just started. There's more.

Once we get past the fact that he's cross dressing and he's doing it by wearing cloths that scream "virgin", than we got to look at that troublesome tattoo or war paint or whatever that thing is he's got branded across his forehead. That blue crescent moon. A symbol of chastity, womanhood, and worn to tell the world that you've taken a vow of celibacy. This is a strange symbol in that it's meaning is almost universal, seen in nearly all cultures, can be traced back several thousand years, and nearly always means that the person wearing it has taking a vow to devote themselves to religion/power and is doing so by living a life devoid of sex, because such a life is said to make one stronger bother physically and spiritually. BIG YIKES! Sessho is very likely to do just that, given his obsession with becoming the most powerful demon ever.

An interesting thing about the crescent moon is it is probably the most historically accurate part of his entire outfit! Again though, for China, not Japan... how odd.

Lord Sesshomaru's make up, while it may seem a bit outlandish today, was at one time rather fashionable and a very real style worn by women every day. Note here, that men did not wear this style make-up, only women did, again with the cross dresser bit.

Lord Sesshomaru's make-up comes from the Tang Dynasty of China (circa 627 - 907). Women of the Tang Dynasty wore elaborate facial make up. They started out by powdering their faces white.

On their foreheads were painted crescent moons or flower petals or shapes. These crescents were made out of feathers, seashells, fish bones, pure gold, or painted on dye. This was called Shouyang or Plum Blossom Make-Up. Everything had different meanings so you as usual, could look at a person and say" "I know you are a ___ because you are wearing a ___".

At the sides of their eyes were painted red stripes, extending to the cheeks. This was called Morning Sun Make Up because the stripes were the color of a rose sunrise. This type of make up was done by women who sought to mimic the look of Xue Yelai, Emperor Coa Pi's favorite imperial concubine, who had a red scar on her face.

It has already be determined that Sesshomaru lived in China during the 800's putting him in the Tang Dynasty at the height of this fashion.

I can take this one step farther, too. White is the color traditionally worn by eunuchs. *Ouch!* Persian eunuchs wear... get this: weird white parachute pants. Niiice. Oh, I can just see the lynch mobs now. See, I told this was not good news for Sessho's fangirls (myself include.) But than again, who am I to argue with history? Yeah, right! It's my Sesshy we're talking about here, I can ignore history, and besides, Sesshy's not Persian.

Any ways, what this information tells us is that one way or another this guy refuses to have sex with anyone. At best he's just ignoring you, the mid-line point suggests he's a transvestite and the worst case scenario is ... uhm ... well ... he is a dog.

Though, this certainly goes towards answering the common questions asked about Sessho's weird attitude towards (or rather his lack of interest in) women, in a series where every other male character seems to be fighting over women. It also goes to explain his actions in 167. Which was: naked woman falls from the sky, lands at his feet, basically has thrown herself at him and he's calmly staring up at the clouds or the sun or trees or whatever it is he's looking at, that is in the opposite direction from Kagura on the ground, and than walks off like he never saw her. I'd like to see Miroku do that! Fangirls everywhere were all going:

"Yes! Sessho and Kagura! Finally!" and than they get nothing.

Sessho: "Come on Rin!"

Rin: "Coming Lord Sesshomaru."

Jaken: "Put some cloths on."

Yep. There's the Sesshomaru we all know and love. Sees a naked woman, keeps on walking, doesn't bat an eye. Leaving behind millions of broken hearted fangirls who went off screaming and pulling their hair out after seeing episode 167. LOL! And yet, would we REALLY want him any other way?

Is The Mokomoko Historically Accurate?

Yes, for a Mongolian it would be, uhm... China again.

Of course humans do not have tails, so if you consider the Mokomoko to be a tail, than no it can't possibly historically accurate.

However, not everyone considers it a tail, and if you follow this line of thinking, than yes, it is very very accurate. However, once again we must leave Japan to find the Mokomoko and what it is. For this we must travel to one of three places: Mongolia, Tibet, or Hungary (Romania and Turkey are have seen them as well). These big furry thigs are actually pretty common. Called different names by different cultures, to Europeans and Americans they are usually known as Suba.

What is a suba? In it's simpelest form it is the skin of a long haired sheep which is thrown over your shoulder. Some more elaborate versions are made of several skins sewn together to form a vest, coat, shawl, or cape.

What they are made of, how they are worn, and what they look like varies from tribe to tribe, depending on what the local fur bearing animals there are to hunt, and how cold the region's winters are.

For the SCA, you'd have to call it a suba and not a tail.

Personally, I consider it a tail.

This section got too long and has been moved to here:

  • The Mokomoko
  • Lord Sesshomaru is known for his mokomoko, the weird furry fluffy thing that is draped over his right shoulder. But what is it, and how do you make one for...

What Will I Do?

Well, for my own costume, I'm keeping the overall look from the anime, but being more accurate to the manga, while making changes to make it historically accurate for what would have been worn by a Japanese Lord of the Momoyama Period.

The biggest reason for the change is not so much to be historically accurate, but rather, to be able to wear the costume. If you've read my costume lenses, than you know this is a costume made to the SCA's historical reenactment standards. Meaning that that it's not a costume made of foam and cardboard, but rather leather and metal. Well, let's face it, Sessho's Chinese style armor is made of cast iron and if made anime/manga accurate would weigh a minimum of 75lbs.

Since I don't plan on wearing 75lbs of cast iron, I'm changing Sessho's armor from it's Chinese metal styling to an much lighter and easier to wear Japanese style made of leather. It'll still weigh about 30lbs, but that's a big difference from 75lbs!

His Chinese sash, I'm not changing at all, however, him being Japanese (and yes, I believe him to be Japanese btw, in spite of the references pointing to him living in China), I am calling the Chinese long sash by the equivalent Japanese name "Heko-Obi", even though it is not exactly a Heko-Obi. If he's Japanese, I think he would have called it a Heko-obi regardless of what it's Chinese name is.

Those weird Chinese binding shoes of his are not coming anywhere's near my costume! OUCH! Winkle Pickers look like binding shoes without the pain, so I'm using those instead.

The weird pouffy Mongolian/Portugese pants of his, are being changed to Japanese hakama instead.

As for the Mongolian/Tibetan/Hungarian Suba, well, in my opinion it is actually a tail, so I'm making it with that thought in mind.

The only part of his outfit which started out Japanese in the manga/anime was his kosode (kimono) and it's of a style not seen until the 1800's! Since Rumiko said the story took place in 1558, that is a bit of a problem. I'm improvising. I'm using a pattern taken from an actual kosode from the late 1500's and have cut my fabric using it. Since 1558 was right at the beginning of the Momoyama Period's "bling era" when lords were embroidered head to toe, I'm embroidering by hand every inch of his kosode.

Well, one thing's for certain: this costume is going to keep me busy for the next year or so.
