This next post is one of those “I had no idea this existed!” things. And yet, once you see it, you can’t un-see it. And I don’t mean that in a bad way, like when you see a blob of food on someone’s face but you don’t know that person well enough to tell them to wipe it off without embarrassing yourself or them, so instead you try to focus on anything but the food on their face, except now that you’ve seen it, you can’t help but stare right at it.
Or does that just happen to me? And seriously, even if I don’t know you, PLEASE tell me if I’ve got something on my face. Thanks.
Anyway, this is one of those things that when you see it, you will wonder how you ever could have missed it.
Truly, we’re talking life-sized mannequins right above your head.
"Hmmm, shall I get something custom-tailored?"
"Why yes, I would be happy to help you with that!"
Looking up, looking around, noticing what’s going on…
"A hat shaped like mouse ears? Whatever will they think of next?"
Or maybe you need a shave.
"Dude, don't come near me with that thing!"
"No, I mean it! DON'T COME NEAR ME WITH THAT THING!"
Perhaps some of you have guessed it, but I wouldn’t have. This displays can be found…
In the Emporium!
Yeah, I’m not all that perceptive sometimes. The crazy thing is, I already did an entire post on the Emporium, and in one of the pictures you can actually see the barber shop scene–but it never occurred to me to look up in the store, or look at the top of the picture of the one I took.
See if you can find it in the entry here.
And if you’ve been to Disneyland and you’ve never noticed these–take that as a hint to slow down and enjoy the ride a little. I sure am!
Tell your friends about this awesome post!
The food thing totally happens to me also, it’s not just you! Thank you for pointing out so many of the small details that can be easily missed at Disneyland. Next time I go I am for sure going to “look up” so I don’t miss anything! 🙂
It’s really awesome if you take a look around! Also I think you have some lettuce in your teeth. Yeah, right there ;).
The life size mannequins are relatively recent – like within the last 6 months. That’s one of the changes they were making when they renovated Emporium last year. I just didn’t want you to think it had been there for 20 years or something.
😆 I actually thought it had been there longer. It kills me, though, that I’ve been in that store so many times and even took a whole bunch of pictures of it just this past year and never saw it.
Ha! They HAVE been there a long time! They just refurbbed them recently. I found pictures as far back as 2004 on the web, but I do think they’re part of the original design. I’ll ask…
Have they? Silly me! I didn’t notice them either!
