The Classic Story of “Painted Skin” 

畫皮鬼 (Painted Skin) ‘s stories often involve an evil circulate.  She was a fox spirit who practices Taoism or Buddhism trying to reach immortal level. During her studying she’s getting too obsessed with the world of mortals which is full of fun. So she gave up her study and chose to eat human hearts to partially stay in human form, but her lack of power cannot fully accommodate a complete human-like appearance.

There’s one time, she accidentally got a piece of human skin. Every night she draws lips, eyes, nose of a beautiful young woman on it and wear that skin to maintain her human look. Because the lips and eyes she drew would fade away by midnight. 

At night she also appears as a beautiful young lady by wearing the skin to seduce a man with her first words saying that she is “lost”. If the man brought her home, she would find a chance to take his heart.
