The 2019 Pinkorama Round-Up

So many thanks to all of this year’s Pinkorama participants!

Every year, I wonder, how can these possibly live up to last year’s?  And every year you somehow manage to raise the bar!  This year, we’ve got ricocheting billiard balls, Star Wars memorabilia, sinking ships, and sugary skullduggery in 19th century Hyderabad.

It’s impossible to choose just one favorite out of so much gorgeousness. But that’s your job! Pick your favorite Pinkorama from the round-up below and post it in the Comments– and I’ll choose one judge at random to receive a Summer Country tote bag!

Voting closes next Saturday (5/11). Winners will be announced on Monday (5/13).

In the order in which I received them, I give you… the 2019 Pinkoramae!

1) “The Passion of the Peeple Plumeria” or “Billiard Balls on Cue” by Carrie and Laura (from The Passion of the Purple Plumeria)

With the French spy, the Gardener, in hot pursuit, the Pink Carnation and her chaperone, Miss Gwendolyn Meadows, make good their escape by unleashing the “special trunk” and scattering billiard balls all over the road.  Colonel William Reid has no idea what he’s got himself into….

2) “The Peep Wars Bedroom” by Carla and Rowan (from The Glass Ocean)

When Sarah Blake crosses the Pond in search of answers about the Lusitania, she never expects to find a handsome Englishman… or his Star Wars bedecked childhood room!

3) “So Many Peeps Lost” by Colleen and Nick (from The Glass Ocean)

As the Lusitania goes down beneath the waves, our heroines, Caroline Hochstetter and Tess Fairweather, cling to the side of a an overturned lifeboat.  Will they live?  Will they die?  Will help arrive from the Irish fishing village in the distance?  And can anyone keep Prunella Schuyler from barging into the scene?

4) “Showdown at Peep’s Tomb” by Candace and Cassandra (from The Betrayal of the Blood Lily)

There are crosses and double crosses galore at the climactic scene of The Betrayal of the Blood Lily, as Penelope and Alex chase a French spy to Raymond’s Tomb– and find not just a hidden cache of weapons and various flower-named foes, but the Moonflower himself.

And that concludes our tour de 2019 Pinkorama, in which each and every one is a tour de peep! May I have a huge round of applause for all the artistes? Take a bow, pat yourself on the back, and relax with a peep while we all admire your work!

What’s your favorite Pinkorama of 2019?

    They are all fabulous, but going to vote for #1. The Passion of the Purple Plumeria is such a favorite.

  2. Pat Dupuy on May 4, 2019 at 2:12 pm

    So impressive! And I don’t think any of these scenes have been done before. It was tough choosing but I think #1.

  3. Michelle L on May 4, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    Wow, they’re all amazing! I love them all, but, #1 is my favorite, such wonderful detail, and wonderful characters.

    • Christine on May 4, 2019 at 8:22 pm

      They’re all great but my favorite is 4.

    • LynnS on May 5, 2019 at 3:19 pm

      It was a difficult decision, but I’m going to go with number 4. I love the details and that it’s all edible.

  4. Sharon Timmer on May 4, 2019 at 2:21 pm

    The Peep Wars Bedroom gets my vote

  5. Connie Roessler on May 4, 2019 at 2:30 pm

  7. Jane on May 4, 2019 at 2:50 pm

    #2 but it was a hard choice.

  8. Mary Smith on May 4, 2019 at 3:07 pm

    #1 is my favorite, though #2 is close. The coach covered in baggage wins!

  9. Jean Wright on May 4, 2019 at 3:48 pm

    They are all interesting, but my vote has to go for #1. It captured me from the first you put up the pictures.

  10. Melly P on May 4, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    I love #4
    The cracker crates and their coats are so creative…and the artists names fit with the alliteration going on!

  11. Gail Morrissey on May 4, 2019 at 4:58 pm

    No. 1 for sure though they are all really creative!

  12. Gail Morrissey on May 4, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    No. 1 for sure although they are all so creative!

  13. Erica K. on May 4, 2019 at 5:55 pm

    3!!!

  14. Elizabeth (Miss Eliza) on May 4, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    So hard to choose, but because of actually staging it outside my vote goes to #1, “The Passion of the Peeple Plumeria” or “Billiard Balls on Cue”!

  15. Deanna Greene on May 4, 2019 at 6:03 pm

    Wow! Tough to choose!! After careful consideration, I’m going with #1 (#4 is a close second). Well done!!

  16. Nick White on May 4, 2019 at 7:11 pm

    #3!! They all look great!

  17. Christine on May 4, 2019 at 8:25 pm

    They’re all great but I love 4!

  18. Patrick on May 4, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    There is a lot of planning, creativity, and good execution in all of them but I vote for #3.

  19. Courtney on May 4, 2019 at 9:35 pm

    These are all fantastic!!! But I vote for #1.

  20. Carrie on May 4, 2019 at 10:11 pm

    I am pretty proud of #1 – I really like how the trunks turned out! I love the costumes and edible set up of 4, and the desperate surrealism of 3, but I have to vote for #2 because of the Chewbacca drawing! Great job, Rowan!

  21. Barbara C Jones on May 4, 2019 at 11:08 pm

    #1. Congratulations to all the entrants for jobs well done!

  22. Karlene Barger on May 5, 2019 at 2:28 pm

    Lusitania tragedy! Very imaginative.

    I go with #3, love that my husband helped with it

  27. Julie on May 5, 2019 at 5:41 pm

    All the extra little touches, such as the Star Wars posters on the wall, make #2 my top choice.

  28. Liz D. on May 6, 2019 at 11:41 am

    I love seeing all the Peep creations every year! I’m going to vote for #1 – so creative and love Miss Gwen launching billiard balls…

    I’m tempted to vote for Star Wars bedroom (because Star Wars!!!) but Number One is so brilliant so it gets my vote.
