The 23 Most Creative Entries From This Year's Peep Diorama Contest


by Anna Marquardt
The Washington Post holds a contest for dioramas made of Peeps - you know, the marshmallow candy so ubiquitous this time of year? They got over 700 entries, but here are a few of the semi-finalists we think you'll love. Who won? Scroll to the bottom to find out...
1. Movie of the year Sharknado showed up not once...
2. ...but twice, in two different Peepnado-themed entries.
3. Spider-Peep, Spider-Peep, does whatever a Spider-Peep does...
4. Oscar-winning Gravity also showed up twice, once with a full theater...
5. And once in terrifying close-up.
6. The 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz inspired this sweet entry.
7. Ellen's Oscar selfie was a popular topic. Smile and say "peeeeeeeep!"
8. A Peeple's tribute to Harold Ramis, who died earlier this year.
9. No contest is complete without a Breaking Bad entry.
10. Or a Game of Thrones one.
11. This isn't just a House of Cards entry - this is a BINGE PEEPING House of Cards entry.

13. This entry took its inspiration from a somewhat older drama - the Trojan War.
14. Mrs. Peepcock, in the library, with the candlestick.
15. These Peeps are knitting sweaters for penguins! Or "peepguins," I guess.

17. The Supeep Court.
18. The Olympeeps were a major story this year as well.
19. Check out the motion on that bobsled! Bobpeep. Peepsled? Okay, that one doesn't work.
