Let My Peeple Go!

Charleton Hes-Peep as Moses
I've always wanted to enter the Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest, but I always remember the deadline too late. This year, I thought about it mere hours before photos needed to be turned in. While there was no time to enter the contest, I couldn't resist the opportunity to create this Peeps scene that's been knocking around in my head for a couple of years now. To that end may I present, "Let My Peeple Go"...

Egypt-Peeps Chariots and their Charioteers

The parting of the Red Seas background is painted in food coloring. The Egyptians chariots are made of "tulip peeps" and their horses are chickies (natch).

Let My Peeple Go!

For some reason Peep chickies are a lot easier to find in Brooklyn than Peep bunnies. I don't know about you, but I've always been rather partial to the bunnies myself.

I'm so annoyed with WaPo. I have no idea what they are looking for. I mean the Up diorama that won is amazing, but seriously, there are some really dumb ones (like the Balloon Boy) that beat out my diorama.
