I've gotten a bit further, but will have to put it on hold for a bit to do another project that has come up and has a deadline soon.
I've added my own 80's picture which is authentic eighties, although I did not have pink hair. Also added in is my 8year old in the very large for for her sunglasses and a teddy bear rainbow pin. The beads had to be rethought as what I have is a silver bead mardi gras necklace. I rendered them silver and it did not look right so I am trying to make them into pearls ala the Material Girl... they are still in progress.
