Mini Skirt Monday #139: Minis On Stage (Part 2)


It's been about a year since the last "on stage' post, so we're due another.  After all, what's the point of the mini, if it's not on display? It's like keeping the Mona Lisa locked in a closet.  Bring the minis out where they can be appreciated! And what better way than up on stage for audiences to behold.

I've divided this one up into two categories: musical numbers and plays.  Today we'll look at the dancing and the singing; next week it's a thespian edition of Miniskirt Monday.


Okay, you caught me.  The last one isn't a mini.  Consider it a bonus.

  1. All I see in 14 is a bitchen Kustom amp and a set of black oyster Ludwigs with some pretty big cymbals.

  3. If I'm not mistaken, is that Sammy Davis Jr. in Sweet Charity??

  4. It seems to me that what distinguishes costume mini from real-life mini is that the costume mini often has a ridiculously high hem-line, 3, 8 and 12 for examples, that would be totally impractical for every day wear. My other comment is that the mini works best as an expression of individual taste and style so that, once again for example, the girls of photo #4 look some what bland in their one style to please all outfits.

    I love Miniskirt Mondays but isn't this...reaching? Then where are the ballerinas and figure skaters?

  7. Thanks for sparing us the "attempted mini-skirts" of the mid to late sixties, which acknowledged the influence of Carnaby Street but were too chicken to bring up the hemline. "Petticoat Junction" is a good example of Southern-friendly standards, which apply to this day, to a lesser degree.

  9. The fun is guessing what show they are doing...#10 looks like a student production of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, and #18 the original version of PROMISES, PROMISES (the "Turkey Lurkey Time" number).

  10. Who is the group in #18? At first glance I thought it might be Sergio Mendes (to the left) and Brasil 66,

  11. #14. The look on the face of the first girl makes it look like she was framed for passing gas. And going by the look on the face of the second girl, I'd say it's a safe wager to say that she just blew out the back of her pantyhose.

  13. I'm sorry, but the wearing of a miniskirt as a costume doesn't do much for me. I'm more interested in miniskirts as everyday wear. For that reason, the only picture that really interests me is #4.

    But, oh, what a picture #4 is! 39 girls all in miniskirts. That must set some sort of a record for a single picture on Mini Skirt Monday. Imagine a girls school chorus adopting the miniskirt as its outfit today.
