When I create characters for my story, I use fashion as a way to describe their personalities. Fashion is a choice people make. The choices people make reveal their personalities. However, fashion may not show all there is to someone’s personality as sometimes it can also be a way for people change the perception of others towards them.
I realized in my previous chapters of the Lighting Hour that I forgot to describe any sort of clothing for Blake or Madame Agathe. Since there is not much time for me to edit the previous chapters, I will add more details to their clothing in the next ones.
If you need some inspiration or ideas for fashion, you can find some in pinterest or even through watching YouTube make-up and fashion gurus. My personal favourite is Ingrid. Her channel is called Missglamorazzi. She had a fun personality and she shows it through her colorful clothing and make-up. Even when she dresses more formally, she adds colour through her accessories and shoes.
