Hey guys, Colombo (the LocoRoco piñata) has arrived in Washington! Here’s a slightly abridged version of the email exchange I had with our winner, ShMerker:
Not sure if you read my post on this, but you’ve won the LocoRoco piñata! At first I thought the Boomer idea was crazy because SIF I CAN MAKE A BOOMER PIÑATA, but then I figured, ‘why not?’. So I’m gonna try and make one.
If you could provide me with your mailing address, I’ll package the piñata and mail it off to you within the next fortnight-ish.
Many weeks and a trip to the post office later, I get this email:
Just received it in the mail. It’s even more adorable in person. Thanks again for sending some awesomeness to an internet stranger. I’m not sure I can bear to destroy this guy, now that I see him up close. I suddenly understand why people are always blindfolded when they murder pinatas. Will I regret not discovering whatever it is you’ve filled this guy with? A simple yes/no will suffice, I don’t want any surprise spoiled.Also, I took some photos of it in it’s new home: Here it is hanging over my desk. And here it is playing Geometry Wars with me. He isn’t very good at it.
