Minnie of My Dreams
One of the joys of looking at vintage photographs of Disneyland is looking at the evolution of the character costumes. This Minnie Mouse is especially intriguing (or frightening.) It appears to be from 1961 when the costumes were transitioning from the large head and no stuffed body to the more rounded and "on model" costumes. If I remember correctly, John Hench was involved in redesign of the costumes in the mid 1960s to make them more "on model." One caveat, do not blame me for the nightmares you may have with this Minnie Mouse in them!
