We'll see who's taller in a couple of strips anyway.
1. Yes those things. Originally I thought they were part of her shoes sort of like the ribbons on ballet slippers or ghillies (Mary Jane like shoes that tied up to the calf were quite fasionable around the early half of the 19th century which is roughly the period I imagine when I see the way Minnie dresses.) but the ribbons are not in fact attaced to anything. I call them "garters" because that's the only article of clothing I can think of that looks like that (and even then I'd mean cross garters, like what Falstaff wears in Shakespere's Twelfth Night
2. We may, we may not. Part of the problem is that the shoes minnie has now are not the same as the shoes she had then. her "zombie" Mary Janes have much thicker, platform soles. The heigh of those soles might equal that of Mimi's bootheels or be less or even slightly more, so unless Bleed is planning a scene of the two of them stnading face to face at the beach, or in bed, or in some other position where they would both be barefoot (none of which are either logical or likely) results may still be ambiguous.
