What is a Wapuu? If you’re new to the WordPress Community and a WordCamp or Meetup, seeing these whimsical and playful characters in and around events worldwide. In this presentation, we’ll look at how these mystical creatures came to be, fit into each event’s brand messaging, and sets the tone for each weekend.

We’ll also take a look at the five Wapuu characters I’ve created and the thought process behind their creation, the “rules” of creating a standard Wapuu, the Field & Trading Outpost – their home, review some of my favorite Wapuus spotted, and more.

Need a change of pace during your busy WordCamp day? Stop in for this fun peek behind the curtain.
