Weirdly, I am most troubled by the shoes.
Though admittedly, that’s because letting my gaze linger on the rest of this for too long gives me a headache, and risks retinal sunburn or something. (Suffice to say that I think Mrs. Claus wears this when she wants Santa to get too confused by the wrappings to undo them.) And so my eyes drift down to her feet, and… that HAS to be a trick of the light, right? There’s no way I can actually see the outline of her toes in that shoe…? So it’s just an illusion that it looks like a giant red paw? Please?
