“The Characters In Costume Blogfest” Day 1 Recap

I must admit that when Andrea first suggested we host a “Characters in Costume Blogfest,” I was not the most observant person when it came to costumes and a character’s appearance or thinking about how a character could be create or described. But after reading everyone’s posts, I have come to a new appreciation of the emotional and storytelling force of costume and appearance. Thanks everyone for making this a thought-provoking first day!

Don’t worry if you do not see your post on today’s recap; we will be sure to include it in tomorrow’s.
