It's been a long, hard winter for those of us in the midwest (and elsewhere) so why not celebrate with some peeptastic fun? If you've seen pics from any of the peep diorama contests in recent years, you'll know that these colorful characters have some wild and crazy fun. Take note: The most elaborate entries are not necessarily the ones that win. Clever and witty dioramas, often featuring a play on words, usually rake in the prizes.
The EPL Peeps displays, in the clip above, offer some great ideas. And the heroic Capt. Sullenberger diorama ... well, what can I say? It's amazing.
You'll also find great slideshows alongside details of the 4th Annual Washington Post Peeps Contest, where clever dioramas compete for all sorts of Washington swag. Be sure to read those rules carefully.
