California Adventure Retro Photo Shoot Preview

Well our palsΒ the Roots have been busy this weekβ€”today they posted a preview of the retro photo shoot we did at California Adventure just before we all went to Hawaii for our Aulani vow renewal.

I’d been itching to do a vintage photo shoot on Buena Vista Street since the day it opened. Because the fashions of the late-’20s and the ’30s don’t work on my ’50s figure, I split the difference and we went for a 1940s look.

Patrick couldn’t get over the super-high waist on his pants at first, but they were the genesis of yet another wacky character (see also: Harrison Hightower). Meanwhile, I had a love-hate relationship with my shoes, which were simultaneously a-friggin-dorable and un-friggin-comfortable!

Shoes!

Check out the rest of our preview pics over on the Roots’ blog!
