Dota 2's New Bloom Festival will soon be underway, and the Dota team has invited players to participate by submitting items with a Chinese New Year theme to the Dota 2 workshop. That theme requirement obviously didn't stop Down Limit, the man behind the Gaben shopkeeper skin, from putting his creation forward.
There's a video too. Check it out, it's amazing:
Now, for the model to actually be implemented for the in-game event as a replacement look for the Shopkeeper, the submission would need a crapton of votes on the workshop, but it would actually have to follow the aforementioned Chinese New Year theme to be approved by the Dota team. So yeah. Still, a man can dream.
