Peeps Dioramas Easter
April 8, 2012 by staff
Peeps Dioramas Easter, Depending on the state of your sweet tooth, Peeps are either a delectable Easter treat, or sugared styrofoam contorted into unnatural shapes. Peeps dioramas have exploded into an annual springtime tradition, with outlets like the Washington Post and the Denver Post holding competitions that celebrate the medium of sugar-coated marshmallows.
The resulting dioramas range from political parodies to some wonderfully geeky works of edible art. I’ve collected some of my favorite Peeps dioramas, with scenes from comics, science fiction TV and films, and video games rendered with pastel bunnies and chicks.
There’s a certain art form to the Peeps diorama. You want to use the classic Peeps shapes while also replicating a recognizable moment. You want to enhance the Peeps without disguising them, and Loren Sciurba does just that with his Walking Dead diorama, depicting Shane’s sacrifice of poor Otis with distressed zombie bunnies, licorice guts and a nice splatter of raspberry jam blood.
For a more genteel take on the zombie apocalypse comes “Peeps and Prejudice and Zombies.” Needs more licorice guts.
Landscape architect Jill Yutan went with classic Star Trek for her diorama. Clever, since Tribbles reproduce like parthenogenetic bunnies.
Normally, I don’t regard Peeps as an appealing foodstuff, but the thought of chocolate-covered Dalek Peeps is making me hungry. Come, Peepeks, and exterminate my hunger.
If Peepman’s symbol is a Peep, then why does he still dress like a bat? Of course, you don’t really need logic when you have a sweet Peepmobile like that.
If you prefer your Batman-inspired Peeps Photoshopped instead of physical, you might enjoy Batman’s origin, retold with Peeps.
