How can we as writers combined the two? Keep reading!
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but on the sidebar there’s a Polyvore widget. What’s Polyvore? It’s a website for those who like to virtually create their own fashion trends and styles, who make up outfits or simply express themselves through combining images to form a unique masterpiece.
I’ve been on Polyvore for quite a long time but it was only a few days earlier that I really got into it. You can check out my profile HERE (and add me if you have an account too ^^ if you wish!). I got the idea from the dragon-lover and writer Shéa MacLeod: to make up my own character’s outfits! (check out MacLeod’s Polyvore too!)
And this is just so so fun!
For example I did 3 outfits for my protagonist who is Elaine Graith – the daemon girl stuck in Heaven:
These are her casual everyday outfits, when she goes to school…
This is her famous daemonic outfit!! 😀
I even did a set when Elaine and her two best friends appear:
Then I enjoyed myself with the main guys… ^^ First with Elaine’s crush: Mak…
And Gabriel the famous Angel!
I also played with the three Goddesses’s styles:
And finally Brigit:
Haha yep I’m so engulfed into my NaNo novel that I’m determined to finish it and publish it: I hope before the next NaNo round in November! Writing has always been my favourite hobby… and a passion burning in my heart ♥
So if you feel so close to your characters that you can even make out outfits for them… then Polyvore is for you! Fashion and Fiction = it’s totally possible! 🙂

There’s no Daphnee in those pictures though 😛
lol! That’s because I’m real – not a character hihi ^^
Oh my gosh I LOVE this idea!! I am personally obsessed with writing (I didn’t finish my nanowrimo though…soooo disappointing!)…so to combine my two loves, I just blog as much as I can. Except it’s hard to sprinkle some fiction into fashion posts without sounding wack!! aha. I’ll have to figure out my polyvore login info and start doing this.
Doesn’t matter if you finished nano or not, at least you love writing and you had fun! I did 🙂 Blogging – a great experience for us! lol sure do then give me the link, I’ll follow you ^^ Thanks for coming by Chelsey!
This is a really cool idea! I’ve always clipped pics from magazines that helped me visually with a character and pinned them together on the bulletin board by my desk. But this looks like a lot more fun.
Pictures help so much when it comes to visualising! 🙂 Feel free to be part of the fun too!
