Dressing My Characters

Dressing My Characters

Hello Everyone!

As this is my first post on the Spice Aisle, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mika Jolie. I live in New Jersey with my Happy Chaos—my husband and our energizer bunnies (two sons and a fur baby). When I’m not weaving life and romance into evocative tales, you can find me on a hiking adventure, reading, or on Pinterest.

I’m convinced Pinterest is one of the hottest thing on the web, it’s also a useful tool for world building. One of my favorite boards created was for my romantic comedy The Boy Friend

As a writer, I love getting to know my characters. What do they look like? Would my female character wear matchstick jeans and ballet flats? Would she wrapped paisley blue silk scarf around her waist, up over her torso, then tie the ends behind her neck to fashion a halter-style blouse? Maybe she enters her favorite store, runs to the belt rack. A truffle belt catches her attention, the one with the tarnished—almost black—buckle over brass. She loops it into her blue jeans, blue and brown, like waves meetings pebbled shore.

Coriander, my female main character from The Boy Friend wears this black backless jumpsuit in one of the sexiest scenes in the novel.

 

 

See, fun, right?

I do the same thing for my male characters. You can find a few here:

Have fun browsing and until next time!

 

XOXO,

Mika

    Welcome to the blog! 🙂
    I love searching on Pinterest for characters’ clothes. It’s so helpful. Your boards are awesome!

  2. Welcome, Mika! I am a total Pinterest junkie and I love checking out other authors’ boards. I know what you mean about knowing what your character wears. It’s part of their personality. 🙂
