Hello Fellow Writers!

I love making pages and pages of information about characters in the stories I write. One thing I love to do is design what my characters closet would look like.

For Example:

Female, Age 16
Closet: Graphic Tees for bands she likes hung up and organized by color, Ripped Jeans and Shorts, six sets of identical black leggings, three black hoodies, two pairs of sneakers, a closet organizer full of bandanas, headbands, hairclips, bracelets, scarves, and other brightly colored accessories. Also: An old suitcase, a blue notebook. A red bow tie which she never wears. In a small container in the back corner is full of clothes she no longer wears.

So later , me and my friends started playing a writing game where one person designs a closet and the others try to discern the characters personality from their closet.

So for anyone whose interested: Design your own closet, or try to create a character from one.

Hope you enjoy!

Hm..I'll just design a closet.
Let's see.

Male, Age: 15

Closet: There's not much hung up in there. Some formal wear: One tuxedo outfit, a few pairs of pants, a hanger filled with ties and bow ties, a blazer that's bigger than the tux with an emblem for a school he doesn't attend and three white shirts, one with an orange stain.

On the ground of his closet is a different story. There's a pile of clothes in one corner that includes the following: at least two pairs of tights, a red crop top, 2 polo shirts, a jersey, The Emo Trinity T-shirts, tank tops, a turtleneck, shorts, jeans, an aviator jacket, something that looks like a thong, and drop crotch pants. On the other side of the closet is a pile of accessories like: two wigs, some dresses, two pairs of heels and a make-up set. In the centre, there are two pairs of sneakers and a pair of formal shoes.

Let's see...

Male, Age 17

Closet: Five tuxedos, all with a different colored shirts (red, blue, white, yellow and orange), the jackets are all black save for one blue one and a red one. Behind the tuxedo rack are suits of casual wear, tight fitting, long sleeved shirts with matching pants and jeans. His drawer has the short sleeved stuff, but no shorts, he likes his legs covered.

Female, age 15

Closest: 10 pairs of sweatshirts, all different colors (red, blue, green, purple, orange, and 5 black ones), 4 pairs of black leggings thrown in the corner of her room. 2 chokers (black and rainbow), 2 LGBTQ pride crop tops, 2 pairs of converse scatter her floor. 5 pairs of glasses (4 are old pairs) sit in a box on her dresser. Lots and LOTS of fuzzy socks and ankle socks. She likes her wardrobe but still feels self conscious.

"What's in your character's closet?"

- my character
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia
Mountain mamma, take me home
Country roads
Take me to my KOTGR Log, my Order of the Ravens, my WRFF
and my Squills page.

I'm kinda I'll try it.

Female, Age 17

Closet: Organization does not exist. Several thick sweaters, jackets, and hoodies are hung up in the closet, most bland in color, save for one purple sweater, fuzzy in texture, but still soft. The floor of the closet is littered with pairs of jeans, some with rips, several sets of identical shorts, socks in a pile, all of them mismatched. There's a tiny door in the back of her closet held shut by a closet organizer filled with several specimens of a rock collection, trinkets, anime merchandise (which are mostly plushies), and fashion accessories like chokers, bracelets, earrings, necklaces. One pair of sneakers, a pair of brown dress-up shoes. There are alien heads painted on the threshold of the closet.
May the sunlight always find you, thy days be long, thy winters kind, and thy roots be strong.

Female, age 15

Closet: It's a small closet and mostly organized. Although she's usually pretty messy, you can tell she's trying to be neat here. Plain clothing in monochromatic colors (and brown). Lots of thick cloaks and loose shirts. A small collection of black leather boots on a rack on one side. There are also some worn brown gloves on the rack that she wears every day. No jewelry except for one small beaded necklace that are all her parents can afford.
At the very back of the closet, buried beneath a pile of underclothes, is a horse figurine collection in a small box. In it are clay horse that she sculpted when she was little, a wooden horse carved by the village carpenter, a cloth horse her mother sewed for her, and many more. She hasn't taken the box out in years, and it's now covered with dust.

Why should Caesar just get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar, right? Brutus is just as smart as Caesar, people totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar, and when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody because that's not what Rome is about! We should totally just stab Caesar!
