another Cinderella story

Last night at the weekly Knoxville Choral Society rehearsal, our friend Mike mentioned to my wife that I've been writing about almost nothing but George Mason University in the blog lately. We'll take a short break from Patriot Fever to share some vacation photos with Mike (and you).

During our recent trip to Walt Disney World, I posed for a picture with one of Disney's "face characters." In this case it was Alice in Wonderland, who made a point of telling me to hold out my arm like a prince. I assume this was to avoid getting too chummy.

As the name implies, face characters are not completely covered by their costumes like the "fur characters." Many of the face characters portray Disney princesses and are very attractive, which gave me the idea to look for any websites created by their obsessive fans. Instead, I found two interesting essays about the less than magical process of auditioning to become a face character and a comedy piece about trying to hire face characters to show you around the park. Another website documented some guy's quest to get photos of his kids with all the princesses.

In addition to Alice, my face character photo safari captured Belle, Wendy Darling and Cruella De Vil.
