Peeps: delicious to some, disgusting to others. At least we can all agree that these sugary Easter sweets make for some fantastic dioramas, remaking scenes from some favorite scifi movies, books, and TV shows.
Peeps diorama contests have become an annual tradition, re-purposing the colorful marshmallow chicks and bunnies as political commentary, homage, and pure sugar-fueled weirdness. These come from the Washington Post's annual Peep Show, which will announce the winners for its 2011 contest next week.
