Yuki-onna appears on snowy nights as a tall, beautiful woman with long black hair and blue lips. Her inhumanly pale or even transparent skin makes her blend into the snowy landscape (as famously described in Lafcadio Hearn's Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things). She sometimes wears a white kimono, but other legends describe her as nude, with only her face and hair standing out against the snow. Despite her inhuman beauty, her eyes can strike terror into mortals. She floats across the snow, leaving no footprints (in fact, some tales say she has no feet, a feature of many Japanese ghosts), and she can transform into a cloud of mist or snow if threatened.

What an interesting idea to take!

While not really via a visual way, it is indeed a rather spooky story behind her.

It looks quite cool overall, however I'm not huge fan of the quadrangular frame. Because a frame can help to emphasise on a meaning. This is quite neutral in my opinion.

If this is supposed to be more of a portrait, it is totally fine. Just for this scary challenge, I thought making it more shaped as a blizzard would be cool.
