Geekiest Peeps scenes: Easter candy like you’ve never seen it

Star Wars, video games and more get Peeps makeovers

Peeps, the marshmallowy soft yet slightly crunchy delicacy that emerges in time for Easter each year, might seem too delicious to use as props in art displays. But we can make exceptions when the displays are geeky enough, which these certainly are. The maker of Peeps encourages such displays, partnering with news and other organizations to run contests to collect the best.
