Beautiful People is for writers. Every month Cait and Sky post a list of ten questions for you to answer about your characters. It is designed to help you get to know your characters – their quirks, their personality, their flaws, and who they are. You can satiate your curiosity about this feature: HERE. Please join us!
This month's theme is APPEARANCE.

My answers are based on the title character in Hidden Magic: The Adventures Of Saffron Browne.

1. Give a brief overview of their looks. (Include a photo if you want!).
Saffron is a nine year old with long brown pigtail braids and dark eyes.

2. Share a snippet that involves description of their appearance. ✒
"... her ever present long brown braids bobbing along behind her as she ran."

3. What is the first thing people might notice about them?
Her incredibly long braids.

4. What are their unique features? ✒
Everyone says she has a "genuine smile", although she doesn't quite know what that means. 

5. How tall are they? What is their build (Ex: stocky, slender, petite, etc.) ✒
She is average height and weight four a nine year old.

6. What is their posture like?
How do they usually carry themselves? ✒
Saffron has good posture and confident body language.

7. Your character has been seen on a “lazy day” (free from usual routine/expectations): what are they wearing and how do they look? ✒
She has bare feet (usually somewhat dirty), is wearing beat up jeans, and an over sized punk band t-shirt.

8. Do they wear glasses, accessories, or jewelry on a regular basis? Do they have any article of clothing or accessory that could be considered their trademark? ✒
No accessories, unless you count the bandaids she usually has on her knees and feet from climbing trees and getting scraped up. Ha ha.

 She wears adult small punk band T-shirts which are a bit big on her. They don't make them in children's sizes. Her favorite one is a vintage CBGB t-shirt she swiped from her mom.
 When she is wearing shoes it is usually black
Converse high tops.

9. Have they ever been bullied or shamed because of their looks? ✒
Not really. Her grandmother clucks her tongue about the constant bare feet and sloppy t-shirts, but other than that, no.

10. Are they happy with how they look? If they could change anything about their appearance, what would it be? ✒
Yes, in an "it doesn't matter" way. She sometimes wishes she were taller, but that is for practical matters like being able to reach things without having to call an adult, not for appearance's sake.
