My name is Dr. Sphinx and I made this diorama for fun.  Also, to submit it to the 2013 Chicago Tribune Peeps Diorama Competition, because I missed it last year.  Funny story – there is NO 2013 competition!  Oh, the humanity. Apparently, between my lack of perception, and some Google cached information, I goofed.  Well I didn’t spend two late, late nights of cutting, measuring, and gluing not to toot my horn – so, *drumroll* I present to you: Cleopeeptra, the Temptress of the Nile!   

Looks like the only competition I won this year was the Dork Award.

Well done!!! I love it. The inscribed peeps on the building facade are a nice touch.

Thanks! :p I wasn’t happy that the flash washed out lots of the detail – but you know, I was in a hurry to make that non-existent deadline, lol.

Thank you for your vote of approval! I think the Tribune owes me an explanation. They had the competition for several years, so why stop now??? *sigh*

Glad to know what the details on the bldg were, I couldn’t make them out but could tell they were something….so clever! Send it to Peeps with your *sob* story, they may send you some free stuff, or you may be featured in an advert someday 🙂 (ya, you would’ve won, ‘peeps down’)
