I want to get all the red shirt pics out but there's so many of them and to process all of them (comment-wise) would take longer than I'd like, so we'll go in two batches. Here's the first batch.
Where: Pluto parking lot at the TTC
When: first thing Saturday morning
Comment: These were the first group Gay Days shirts I saw Saturday morning. They were one of the few really colorful designs. And they made for a great start for the day.
Where: by the railroad station just inside the MK gates
When: circa rope drop
Comment: Nice composition and execution. I like the pop-culture reference though the design could've been more fierce. And I should've asked if everyone had a different quote: "The reaction was horror... nausea." Niiice... Gaaay...
Where: in line for the Jungle Cruise
Comment: Cute, happy couple. The shirt was borderline disqualified since it was pink and not really red, but I do like the cereal nod. And they had such enthusiasm about their shirt just like yours truly. Shirt pride!
"It's Your Job To Make Me Happy"
Where: also in line for the Jungle Cruise
When: 40 seconds later
Comment: This couple also dressed matchingly. I wasn't sure if the shirts were official Disney apparel but they were clean and cute nonetheless. Looked like they're going to make the CMs work!
"Sorry Boys, I Only Date Bears"
Where: in front of the Country Bear Jamboree
When: almost 1:00pm
Comment: I couldn't help by smile when I saw the shirt, the sentiment was right on target. And the way the guy strolled along the line of bears waiting for the show was also adorable.
When: throughout the day
Comment: I saw it on quite a number of shirts in different styles. The message was true and applicable (especially that day), and it was just reassuring to see.
"Caution: Wide Right Turns"
Where: by the Partners statue in front of Cinderella's Castle
When: before the 3:00pm parade
Comment: How funny (like the XXXL shirt that says "I see small people"), though the caution should've been on the back of the shirt. My friend suggested an alternative slogan: "If you can't see my mirrors, I can't see you." (ha!) The other shirt asks "Does your mother sew?"... yeah, I don't know what that means either.
"HOTTUB843 ON AOL"
Where: Main Street USA
When: also before the 3:00pm parade
Comment: Shameless self-promotion. Niiice. Another friend told me that he had seen a shirt with a phone number. Either way, they're bolder than the numerous "Hi. You'll Do" shirts that were at the park, so props to the self-promoters. (Oh, the "Strangers with benefits" shirt I saw was also great!)
"Hey, Hi. How are you?"
Where: en queue for it's a small world
When: after the 3:00pm parade
Comment: Here's a nod to the innocent and friendly. There was also a group of these ambassadors. The guy in front was totally ready for the photo-ops with a quick flick of the wrist (nice snap!). You go girl!
"Straight But Not Narrow"
Where: a few steps away, looking downwards
When: half-a-moment later
Comment: I was skeptical about the truthfulness of the statement at first, looking at the guy's clean appearance and styled hair, but then realized that there were all types.
"Fan_Boy06 2008 / www.mgh2.com"
Where: on a bus from the TTC to DHS
When: around 5:30pm
