Merry Christmas, everyone!

Have a question for the forum - has anyone ever seen any other source material for "Cutter's Geisha" other than the Prop Store Auction? It was a beautifully created Weta Workshop mask and linen kimono combination that never made the final cut of Ghost in the Shell (and also unique in the sense that it appears to be the only geisha from the film that was not intended to have hair). I am particularly interested in details pertaining to the intended lighting/electronics for the costume, as well as the shape/construction of the obi/sash, since the "bow" appears to be a very unique shape/construction. If anyone has any leads, it would be very much appreciated. Link to the auction pages below:

On yeggi or thingverse someone posted a pretty good 3d file. It is a free file, but well done

I think Adam Savage had a tour of the workshop and focused heavily on this in one of his tested videos.
You’re absolutely right, but they did not feature this particular geisha, but had all of the ones that made the opening scene from the film.

I’ve actually got a slightly scaled down version of that one printed out right now. If I try a Cutter’s Geisha replica, I will likely use the same one with a set of printed ears and worbla for the remainder, as all of the other models have the hair molded.

I wonder if asavage happened to see this one kicking around during any of his Weta Workshop visits? I did send an inquiry off to Weta, though I'm not holding my breath on a response.

I've reached out to a forum member to see about modeling the complete hairless head, and have been trying to find a source for a similar looking fabric. Easier said than done! The angles of the obi itself also look like they'll be a bear to try and recreate.
