I wanted to give the woman mouse a hippie-look with her shirt-like dress, which was a style common to that decade. Although Go-Go boots were commonly white or black, I felt she needed a bit of flash. So she is wearing purple boots, as well as a Peace-sign necklace.
The photo of the cheese rounds was taken in a shop in Alkmaar, Holland. No mice were seen there at the time of the photo.
