You see, Amparo linked to Christina's post about changing her main character's personality, and Christina had this cool clothing collage she'd put together to help define her character.
I clicked on the link and discovered I could do the same thing on Polyvore.com. Cool.
Check out my MC, Azalea:

My initial concept of Azalea's wardrobe.
Of course, money is no object for Azalea, and she never has to walk further than one hundred feet, so it doesn't matter what her feet sport. I'm sure if I did this again, I'd come up with slightly different choices. Azalea's wardrobe is MUCH more complex than this sampling, but man, was it fun!
Okay, your turn. Go to polyvore.com and try your character's wardrobe on for size. Post me links in the comments. I'd love to meet your characters the high-school way: through their clothing choices. ;)
Update: Okay, I'm seriously addicted. I did my middle grade MC, too. Here's Robert:

I couldn't seem to get Whitebolt (Robert's weapon) right. It's a spectrum white opal stone and looks like there's a spirit captive within it. Okay, that's enough polyvore for today. *shuffles off to, like, take care of kids and stuff*
