8-bit Wapuu

The Japanese have given us a lot of good things. Who doesn’t love sushi, pokémon, or karaoke?

My personal favourite is the WordPress mascot: Wapuu. Here he is, in his original form:


But Wapuu didn’t stop there. This little critter travels to WordCamps all over the globe, where he represents of the country or region. Pretty fun, right?! His different costumes are kept on his website.

Of course, he’s looking forward to WordCamp Sunshine Coast, where he’s donned some zinc, found a surfboard, and been fondly nicknamed Wapoolaba after our very own Mooloolaba Beach.

Well, we’ve been looking forward to seeing Wapuu at WordCamp Sunshine Coast so much, that we got a bit obsessive and gave him an 8-bit make-over. 🙂

You’ll see him floating around on stickers at the event — a perfect addition to the back of your laptop. He’ll be with some alternate universe Wapuu friends, which we’ll be announcing soon. Get your ticket now!

Have you seen any great Wapuus around at different WordCamps you’ve attended? Which is your favourite?
