mime inspiration

3 Nov

This came up because me & Amber decided to dress as ‘office-casual mimes’ for Halloween at work on Friday but I have had a long obsession with the 70’s mime stylings of Shields & Yarnell which probably stemmed from seeing them on the Muppet Show as a child. I also watched a lot of pbs with my grandmother when I was little and remember her saying, “I just love Marcel Marceau, he’s just marvelous…”

Anyway, the stripey tops, high-waisted pants & band leader jackets seem pretty relevant at the moment. Plus Lorene Yarnell might as well be Lou Doillon with that top hat on, non?
