|allah_sulu||06:52 am - Peeps on Display|
Yesterday, we went to Artomatic in Washington DC (running May 29 through July 5), and the best exhibits there by far were the Peeps Diorama Contest entries. I took pictures of almost all of them( under the cut.Collapse )
(Crossposted from my journal. asphodel_ale sent me here.)
Just joined today, so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a big fan of Peepanalia, especially the plushies. I have two plush cats (both the brown and the purple), as well as the multicolored bunnies in the cardboard box. My latest purchase was a rubber Peep, which I gave to my mother, who's into rubber ducks.
I remember fondly the days of my childhood, and getting Peeps in my Easter basket. My favorites were the bunnies, which I would eat starting with the ears and working my way down. That was in the day when the chicks only came in yellow, and the bunnies were a new addition, so that shows you how old I am.
Best thing about Peeps today? Ghost Peeps for Halloween
Worst thing about Peeps today? The ginormous amounts in the average box, which I'm never able to finish before they go stale. (A 4-pack is about my limit, now that I'm over 30.)
Peep I'd like to see: devil-Peeps in Target red for Halloween!

Buy some Peeps; let them get stale:
That's when they are at their best
for eating or roasting on an open fire...
Hey, that sounds like another holiday song,
only using Peeps not chestnuts...
Stale Peeps roasting on an open fire,
Dripping melted sugar goo.
Graham crackers lined up with Hershey bars
for folks who love to eat s'mores...

I saw at Target the other day the stuffed Kitty Peep, well two of them, I know the peep itself is a purplish gray color, but the stuffed peep looked like a chocolate color, the other one was a purple. What sucked was all they had was pumpkin and ghost peeps, I have yet to find the kitty peep. So I bought pumpkins and ghosts, I did have enough for the stuffed peeps, but I will get them soon, oh yes I will...

So ADDICTED. So far I've only bought 3 packages of peeps, 1 ghost, and 2 pumpkins. ^_^
I wish they'd make more beanie peeps and stuff, just for Halloween. That'd be so cool.
What is it about Peeps that makes them so irresistable?!?
Except for my friend, she hates them. @_X
Current Mood: hungry

Thanks for your interest in my paintings of Peeps. My one and (so
far)only print available is of the Pumpkin and Wolf Pine. Enjoying and
appreciating paintings of Peeps is not for everybody. It takes a
certain quirky taste and good humor I think, where prints are usually made of
images with a more general interest due to the cost and effort of producing
them. So, no, I don't have any prints and see it as highly unlikely that I
ever will. But, if I ever do, you'll be among the first to know.
I compliment you, your wife, and daughter for your atypical taste and
thank you very much for your interest. With best wishes, Ann Getsinger
P.S. If you'd like to receive announcements of any upcoming exhibits
just send back your address(es?) and I'll add it/ them to my list. My new
work is very different from what's hanging at Heirlooms.
How could my Dad not have spent $500 on a Peeps painting??!!
