Today we learned about a species of moth made of cotton candy.

Okay, not really, but these beautiful creatures are still awesome, even if they aren’t made of spun sugar. This is the Rosy Maple Moth (Dryocampa rubicunda), a small North American moth most often found in southern Canada from Ontario to Nova Scotia. They live in deciduous forests and feed mainly on maple trees, but we suspect that some specimens prefer to follow traveling carnivals where they hover over the cotton candy machines.

Something awesome just happened in China: On October 30th the Kerry Hotel in Pudong, Shanghai broke the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Ball Pit.

As part of a breast cancer awareness campaign called “Pink October,” the hotel filled their 81 ft x 41 ft swimming pool with 1 million pink and green balls. The looks on the faces of the people gleefully romping in the massive ball pit makes it abundantly clear that event was a hit.

"According to the hotel, 300 of the guests were recovering cancer patients volunteered from the Shanghai Cancer Recovery Club. The pool was described by Kerry Hotel General Manager Peter Clarke as being filled with "one million wishes," as many of the balls had hand-written wishes on them."

Last year we posted about Josh Sundquist’s awesome Leg Lamp costume based on the “major award” from the 1983 movie A Christmas Story. For Halloween this year the rapper, motivational speaker, math nerd, and Paralympic champion has outdone himself with an outstanding flamingo costume.
We love the concept, execution, and that amazing hot pink bodysuit. And we hope that Josh doesn’t spend so much time upside-down on Halloween that he misses out on all the candy and ends up with a head rush instead. Candy beats a head rush every time.

American artist Scott Scheidly (previously featured here) has a new solo exhibition of his awesome Pink series of paintings opening at Spoke Art Gallery, which is a perfect excuse to share more of his work here with you.

“The Pinks” explores the cultural and social implications of color and how the predefined notions that accompany these perceptions can alter one’s identity and subsequent world view. By incorporating either hyper-masculinized or historically infamous figures, Scheidly further drives the point home, making a mockery of his subjects though biting socio/sexual satire.

Doesn’t Chewie look pretty? The Pinks exhibition will be on display at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco from August 1st through August 24, 2013.

Further proof that nature is awesome: Michael Murphy photographed this amazing fluorescent Red Triangle Slug (Triboniophorus graeffei) in the misty Mount Kaputar area of north-western New South Wales, Australia. This particularly fabulous species of slug is only found along the eastern coast of Australia. By day they hide under leaf mould, “but on rainy nights locals have long reported sightings of hundreds of the astonishing creatures that come out to feed off mould and moss.”
But do they taste as goog as our Pacific Northwest Banana Slugs?

Holy pink ponies, Batman! DeviantARTist MagnaStorm (aka Elise) was commissioned to create this incredibly awesome Giant Plush Pinkie Pie, and boy did she do a fantastic job.

“4 days of 8-10 hours of work, 5.5m of minky and a couple wounds later Pinkie is now complete. She stands at about 55” (4.5ft) from her hooves to the hightest part of her mane and weighs a whooping 15lbs. As pictured, she can stand unaided thanks to some cushioning foam inside of her (to learn how I did it check this journal: [link]). Her eyes and cutie mark are satin stitched instead of machine embroidered because they were too big for my embroidery machine. The lines and details in her mane were also satin stitched.”

And just in case you’re wondering (because we’ll admit we were) this prodigious Pinkie Pie cannot support a person’s weight (that would required a solid internal frame). She’s meant for cuddling, not riding.
Visit the MagnaStorm DeviantART gallery to view more of Elise’s amazing plush creations.
