When I heard about Annette Funicello passing, I was kind of saddened. I really enjoyed the Beach Party movies and her music. I was introduced to her at a young age and always liked her genuine goodness. So, as a tribute, here is her portrait.
That hair. It wasn’t necessarily difficult, but it was a challenge. Since modern hair styles are more free flowing, a hair out of place doesn’t make much of a difference. But with these 60’s bouffants, every hair is in place, so more time needs to be taken than what I normally spend on hair. I like the result.
