You’ve created a well-rounded character, integrated the flaws, balanced the strengths and figured out the phobia, but before you place them into your setting to go run amok there’s a tiny detail that you might want to consider (especially if your character is female) – what to wear?

The clothes you dress you character in are a huge part of how your reader will see them and define their personality.  It does depend on the setting and time period too, but dressing feminine is something which is usually charicatured to an extreme.  There an excellent article HERE focussing on the perspective of female characters in the gaming industry thorugh their clothing.
