Genius shows up in Minnie ways

March 4, 2008

minnie-160.jpgDear Blog Guy, I know you’ve been covering the fashion scene for years, and I’m wondering where some of those designers get their ideas.

I mean, what inspires them? What triggers their creative process? More to the point, is there any way we can stamp it out?


Now, now, Brenda, you should remember it works out well that you think a lot of haute couture looks ridiculous, because you probably couldn’t afford most of it anyway.

Designers are understandably guarded when it comes to the creative process, and I’m sure we’ll never know exactly what inspires their works of art.

This is Minnie’s Evil Sister. She uses the hair to communicate with her home planet – hint: it ain’t the same one as ET’s…

In that kids’ song, “Well, they all rolled and one fell out,” she was the “little one.”

Good night.
