    Steamboat Willie Mickey Floral

    Just doing a survey to see what the average person thinks of a Steamboat Willie Mickey Floral. There is a design for one, but hasn't been approved yet...just curious of what you think....

    I would LOVE to see this. If it all started with a mouse, then the mouse started with Steamboat Willie. It would be a fitting tribute and a unique floral for the entrance. I love this idea and would love to see it come to fruition.

    Just thinking from a horicultural point of view, that would be tricky. Not many black or gray flowers out there. I'd be interested to see what plants they used. I've loved Black Pansies ever since I saw them outside of the haunted mansion one time. But having tried to grow them around my house I've found that they can tend towards purple, and a purple steamboat willie wouldn't be right.

    ^ That's what I'm thinking - pulling it off well would be a challenge.

    But yeah, I think it'd be awesome if they could figure it out.
    Even if it ended up a little purple, actually, I would like to see 'em try.

    I'd absolutely adore the idea. Maybe as a salute to Mickey's 80th?

    Horticulture alreadys has a concept art and some ideas. The main thing to keep it all black and white. There are a couple of variety of flowers that are really close to black. Right now they use a dark purple for Mickeys ears.

    Sounds awesome, actually. I don't think I'd mind a purple hue, though...it'd kind of remind me of the Fantasmic finale!

    In most of the dark dark purple flowers, they look absolutely black until you get REALLY close up and can look at the petals and see the very subtle purple shade to them.

    It will look awesome if they do it.

    That would be AWESOME! Especially if they are celebrating one of Mickey's Milestone birthdays!

    I'd love to see that!

    What if they used a sepia tone? Keeps it looking vintage, and may be a little easier to deal with the flowers.
    Anyone up for a Colorado Micechatters meet-up?
