In a previous life, I spent ten or so years in the world of architecture and interior design, which is where I first became acquainted with the Canstruction competition. Canstruction involves teams of design industry professionals who conceive and build amazingly creative structures made entirely from cans of food. Sponsored by an eponymous international hunger relief charity, Canstruction sources donations of millions of pounds of food for local food banks through annual events across the country. At the end of each competition, all the food is donated to a local food bank, such as NYC’s City Harvest. In 2020, the event was canceled due to Covid, but his year, the completed structures were back on public display from November 4th to 15th at the Brookfield Place mall in Battery Park City. I’m happy to report I was able to check them out in person. Let’s take a look at the inspired competition from the 2021 Canstruction NYC!
How cute are these little guys? If you are familiar with the Pokemon species, then you know this round, pink creature is called a Jigglypuff. This past summer, Jigglypuff was available to win as a prize at various carnival games found at Coney Island’s Luna Park. This plush toy is about the size of basketball.
OMG, how cute is this week’s Pink Thing of The Day? I found this adorable plushy at Flame Con 2019 and was informed that this is a Pokémon creature called Ditto. Here’s the lowdown from the Pokémon Wiki (yes, there is one):
In its natural state, Ditto is a light purple or pink amorphous Pokémon with vestigial facial features. The face consists of a simple mouth and beady eyes. It also appears to have two pseudopods protruding from its body that it uses as arms. It is capable of transforming into an exact replica of any physical object, including its form and abilities. However, if Ditto tries to transform into something based on memory, it may get some of the details wrong.
Good to know!
