Whether it's for Halloween, Disney-bounding on vacation, or just for the fun of putting together an outfit that's inspired by a favorite movie, TV, video game, or book character--I think we all enjoy getting into somebody else's shoes every once in a while. This post will be looking not only at how to get the aesthetics right, but also at how to use character traits and storyline for inspiration, so we can get to the heart of the character we are portraying. So, here are 8 aspects of costume and character design to consider before creating your character-based outfit:

Color Psychology Results 2
It was so enjoyable reading all of your answers on the color psychology questionnaire! I'm excited to share with you the results, as well as further color psychology research to complement our study (just a little)! Some were surprising (Could orange be peaceful?; Could yellow be boring?), and others were pretty by-the-book, universally relatable (Red is passionate; Blue ranks as the top liked color; Gray is reminiscent of cloudy skies and seasonal depression).

Many people have spoken on this topic, and i will do my best to compile the best and most applicable research i can find. But, especially because written knowledge on this topic is so saturated, and can be very opinionated because of personal and cultural differences, i don't want to begin with simply passing on information. To me, it matters more that this is a discovery process for each of us...How do we as individuals perceive each color? How do they make you feel? Live data is so much more fun and personal! It will help me to create more relatable posts for you.

Serenity 3
An outfit styling based on the kind of person i want to be and qualities i hope to grow in this season of my life. Serenity, gentleness...Peace with myself and the world around me. Remembering my own past, but not letting it be the main thing to shape me. Allowing myself to grow, but not being angry about where i am at. Loosely inspired by traditional Japanese style and ideals.

Confidence is an interesting thing, isn't it? Some seem to shine with it, and with ease. Others feel they'll never find it. But really, all of us deal with a lack of it from time to time. It comes and goes. We can be so hard on ourselves, and that attitude of shame then easily permeates the rest of our lives. We need to learn to love ourselves. And love is a continuous action...so sometimes we have to learn again and again.

I'll Be Honest - Fashion and Depression 2
I think honesty is important. Especially when it has to do with your emotional well being. I’ve been dealing with depression. 2016 was a rough year for me emotionally. Not because of outside influences (it was a beautiful year, full of educational pursuits, change, love, and family), but because of […]

I believe fashion is a form of storytelling.... Delving into that idea is the core purpose in starting this blog... What you wear tells people who you are and what you love--It tells a story. It's personal and you bring it with you wherever you go. What if we could make our clothes declare, with even greater strength, the truth of who we are? What if our outfits could be a catalyst for conversations about the things we're passionate about? The plan is to explore the depths of these ideas....
