The Super Bowl spirit animal that is the Almighty Left Shark has taken many forms: meme, onesie, tattoo, and now, marshmallow masterpiece.

Thirteen-year-old Sydney Blacksten is the brilliant mind responsible for this newest Left Shark iteration. The Westminster, Maryland, teen created the sweet, 6-ft. sea creature out of marshmallow Peeps as her entry in the Carroll County Arts annual PEEPshow, reports The Huffington Post.

The yearly event encourages locals to turn their wackiest ideas into edible art using only Peeps. For her creation, Blacksten used 532 Peeps, including the new white Mystery Peeps sold only at Walmart.

Blacksten’s entire family, who is always scouting for the perfect Peeps, helps the artist create her final product. Mark Blacksten, Sydney’s father, told the Huffington Post that the family starts brainstorming next year’s design right after the competition ends.

This will be the teen’s fifth time participating in the Carroll County Arts annual PEEPshow. In 2014, her “Maryland Terapeep” placed second in the audience favorite category.

Blacksten’s Left Shark will be on display at Carroll Arts Center in Westminster, Maryland, for the current competition until April 6.
