Sorry, my bad, I was looking at the wrong sprite. The full body raccoon suit Mario is actually called Tanooki (tanuki) Mario. Tanooki's are also known as Raccoon Dogs and in Japanese folklore they are tricksters and shape shifters. In Mario 3 you can turn into the statue in order to avoid damage.

Yeah, I actually googled tanooki and got a bunch of raccoon pictures when I first arrived here. So the black-and-white snake-charmer type always confused me/creeped me out.

I didn't play much MB3 back in the day (it usually was restricted to holidays we spent with our family in HB that had the SNES), and I knew "tanooki Mario"...
I'm too poor to pwn, so I r3nt.

yeah it's a "jizo" statue (see here). I had no idea when I was a kid but after taking 4 years of Japanese and reading the folklore I figured it out :)

Glad to see someone is making the pattern! I'm trying to finish a different project by early August so I've been kind of busy, let me know if you need anything.

hrm... "mizzmuzic2006" hasn't posted an update on the status of the pattern. This month is going to be crazy for me but I'll try to find the time.

This thing is huge!! :blinky

I quickly put together a pattern for it. The floss seems to all match up ok.

edit: I did not delete the grey background in the KG-Chart file as I really do not use the program, so am unfamiliar with its functions.
