Washington Post's Annual Peeps Show IV Celebrates Easter Right

The Easter holiday is just around the corner, which means egg hunts and tons of chocolate, but we can't forget Washington Post’s Annual Peeps Show IV either. Charging artists to create elaborate dioramas centered around these deliciously sweet treats, some participants truly outdid themselves.

Considering that the movie UP! really struck a cord with movie-goers around the world, it’s no surprise that the winner of the Peeps Show IV was a recreation of the iconic balloon scene. Created by Michael Chirlin and Veronica Ettle, they used plywood, popsicle sticks and salvaged mattress springs to give it an airborne quality.

Other scenes seen in the Peeps Show IV were based on other pop culture phenomena such as Where The Wild Things Are and Super Mario.
