A month ago I had the wonderful privilege of participating in the second incarnation of a pinata show curated by Dayton Castlemen and Matthew Dupont. The last show was September 2009, and Abby and I made a pretty sweet donkey for that one.
This year's show was a little less academic, and a little more more smashing things with baseball bats, and it was fantastic!
According to the event information:
It was a busy week, but I promised Dayton a mini pinata, and ended up with a tiny 20-pointed origami-inspired glitter-filled lovely piece of smashable paper mache. Not exactly the easiest thing to make, but it was fun. And the party (at Co-Prosperity Sphere) was even more fun! 30 (ish) pinatas, people swinging baseball bats, free prizes, fantastic people, a little poop throwing, what more could you ask for!?

and the smashed wreckage looked like little geodes!

complete with an ice bat!
And here's some nice video footage someone put together of the evening, check it out!
