It's neither long nor particularly short. Sometimes I wish it was longer so I could wear a decent ponytail. Other times I wonder if I would look more "professional" if it was shorter.
In the meantime, it stays somewhere in the middle. It's "mom" hair, I suppose. It's definitely not iconic.
This week's prompt at Illustration Friday is "swirl", and as I tried to come up with something, my thought path led me to Princess Leia and her iconic do with the lovely earmuff hair swirls.
Carrie Fisher's recent death has brought Princess Leia back into the limelight. I remember watching that first Star Wars movie way back when it was the latest rage. I was about 12 years old, and I went to see it with my family at the theater.
Years later, I saw a short documentary about it, and how the actors and creators never expected Star Wars would become as huge as it did. And who doesn't know at least a little about the character, Princess Leia?
The last time we went to Denver Comic Con, there were plenty of Star Wars Cosplayers in attendance. My favorite was a father-son duo, dressed as Princess Leia and Chewbacca. The little boy was Chewbacca, and Dad was the lovely Princess Leia - complete with full beard.
But there was no mistaking that hair. Maybe I should do the Leia do for my own hair, to change things up.
Not in a million years.
