Super Mario Snowman In Chicago: Video Game Icon Gets Snow Sculpture Treatment (PHOTO)

OK, who's going to build a Luigi and some Koopa Troopas now?

An as-yet-anonymous Chicago snow sculpter has created a little something special for Super Mario Bros. fans near the Puptown Dog Park at the intersection of Lawrence Avenue and Marine Drive in the city's lake-adjacent Lincoln Park. The photo was originally posted on Reddit on Saturday:

And it gets more impressive from there: according to Reddit, someone has started coloring the video game icon in with shades of red and blue and a black 'stache, notching up the craftsmanship even more.
