completely insane crack idea

the ladies of disney as the ladies of the bible.

This comes from one single idea for a crazy picture and I have no idea if other ones could be matched or not:

Edna Mode from the Incredibles as Lydia as Thyatira.
Her Wikipedia article. Lydia was a woman who sold purple-dye, which in ye olden tymes was extremely valuable (the sort made from snail shells and reserved for important people only) and she put up saint paul and his homeslices and insisted they accept her hospitality.

So basically I'm seeing Edna Mode suspended in bolts of cloth draping down and dipping into vats of imperial purple dye with this ombre thing happening and wheat woven in the background and kind of a wheat & wine halo.

I don't know what other disney ladies would match which bible ladies. Snow White might be Sarah, being the first princess and all, but just as easily Sarah could be Minnie (and Mickey be Abraham, that demanding clod.) Miriam, being one of my favorite bible ladies, needs to be someone whose brother turns into moses, but does anybody in disney movies even HAVE brothers??? I could see Cinderella as Esther and the wicked stepmother as Vashti. Then there's the problem that I don't know shit about the new testament.

Ah well, just one more awesome idea that won't come to fruition.

Oh man. I approve of ANYTHING that involves Edna Mode. PERIOD.

Disney Project Runway, staring Tim Gunn and Edna Mode.

Disney Princess mud wrestling, refereed by Edna Mode.

The art of Deep Fried Peeps and Edna Mode.

If you don't know anything about the New Testiment, do greek goddesses instead? That's way cooler anyway. And leaves room for more costumes, as opposed to everyone-in-a-hooded-dress.

Greek doesn't have the added blasphemy factor, though. :(

But seriously I know nothing of the bible so I can't contribute anything.

Well, you've already picked someone from the Incredibles, but Violet's got two brothers... stick Jack-Jack in a basket and toss him in the river? :D

Not a ton of cool female characters in the New Testament unless you wanna get apocryphal. Aside from Mary Magdalene... its mostly J-dawg's extended family.

Although I think Jesus' grandma, Anne, is pretty badass. At the old folks' home she can brag that her daughter is the virgin mary and her grandson is the messiah. How do you beat that?

Although can you imagine poor J-dawg getting pestered? "How about some great-grandchildren, dear? That Mary Magdalene girl seems to like you..."

P.S. I got the box of stuff you sent me. Thanks!
