Mouse Mouse Rockstar Hats!

11Nov06

We ran across this group of picnickers at the Myoken-san BBQ area, but they get their own special entry because this is one of my favorite images of all time. The grandmother and her two granddaughters wore these mouse ears for the entire duration of the family BBQ, which consisted of about 20 people. They asked us to take a couple of group photos, and then we asked them if we could take a few solo photos of the grandmother and her granddaughters. They were perfectly happy to oblige, because they all knew how totally cute they were. Please note the mini-Mickey mice located inside the ears themselves, and the fact that mini-Mickey himself is also wearing a white mouse-ear hat! It’s utterly vertiginous.

    Wow, a mini-miki-mise-en-abîme. Try saying that 10 times fast! Very nice plushiness.

    Yeah! I wanted to believe they were some kind of cutie polar bears at first, but later I discovered the Mickeys. By the way, I’m not sure if it’s official Disneyana here, but I’ve been seeing a bunch of people wearing jackets that say something like this on the back:

    “Naturally suited to the role of leader, Mickey is the most popular Disney character.”

    Huh? What a strange aspect of Mickeyness to concentrate on.
