Peep Show - An Edible Fashion Blog


Peeps Gone Wild!
With Easter coming up, it would only seem fitting to showcase a blonde bunny on the blog, wearing nothing but a bikini fashioned out of Peeps. Now, I don't know about you, but that's the kind of candy basket I can really sink my teeth into! (I am secretly hoping that this becomes traditional Pascha apparel. Linda is known for starting new trends!) Wearing edibles takes a bit of finesse; not everyone can pull this off. To be a food fashionista, it takes skill, a proper physique, and a good dose of creativity--all of which Linda has in ample abundance.

Linda is the brains and beauty behind Salty Seattle--the food blog that is getting (well deserved) wide recognition for her mad-scientist kitchen experiments, her culinary artistry, and her well-honed witticisms. She also started a sensational new movement called "Nudie Foodies"--gorgeous gourmands willing to peel off some clothing to raise money for Japan. She's been on Master Chef, and most recently the Cooking Channel, which described her as "the Lady Gaga of Cooking." Apropos.

Despite a crazy work schedule, when Linda asked if I had some time to shoot her in her edible bikini, I made time. If there's one thing I've learned as a photographer, it's that you don't turn down scantily clad women wearing food. Seriously. Learn from me here, people, and make this a rule of business. I know it sounds crazy, but you'll thank me later.

When I arrived at the Easter Bunny's house, her mother was busy gluing Peeps together, and explaining the hazards of using a glue gun near the bikini area. These mother-daughter peep shenanigans really warmed my heart; the way I see it, the family that peeps together, keeps together! (And, quite honestly, I found this to be my all-time favorite use for Peeps bar none.)
