Here’s how I actually view my character at the beginning:
My character is in the lower class – so she won’t be wearing all the frills and expensive-looking clothes. It will be something more like this, except I’m thinking either red or gray for the skirt. And of course she’ll have a coat for when she starts her adventure, but the coat is probably a little shabby, definitely a hand-me-down. There will also be a hat – probably the nicest part of her outfit.
