If you’ve ever wracked your brain on what to buy the person who has everything, a Vancouver artist may have the answer for you and it comes in the form of a personalized piñata.
Meaghan Kennedy is gaining international attention with her ability to turn any likeness into a unique paper-mâché creation. She’s created drag queen Divine, tattoo artist Kat Von D and glam rocker David Bowie. Ryan Reynolds, Jason Priestly and George Strombolopolous have also provided Kennedy with inspiration.
Conan O'brien Instagramed his personalized piñata, but his sidekick Andy Richter complained his likeness wasn't fat enough.
Even Ellen featured Kennedy’s locally-made piñatas on her show. Her DJ Tony danced around with his piñata before going to a commercial break.
You can also see some of Kennedy's creations hanging from the walls of Aphrodite's cafe in Kitsilano, including a few Canuck piñatas.
