If you have no idea what “Beautiful People” is, then you are in luck! “Beautiful People” is a wonderful link-up hosted by Cait @ Paper Fury and Sky @ Further up & Further In! It is fun, easy, and it is free to do.
This month is Appearance Edition and in my novels I love describing what my characters look like, so I was super excited to see that this month was all about what our characters look like.
Today, I am going to do Liam Asher from my Camp Nanowrimo novel Incognito and just so you know, there will not be spoilers. SPOILER FREE! Anyway, let’s start with a few questions about my character! Enjoy everyone!
Give a brief overview of their looks. (Include a photo if you want!)
I kind of see Liam Asher as a Shawn Mendes. He has dark brown eyes that remind me of brownies or fudge. He has pale skin that shimmers in the moonlight on a Friday night. This kind of sounds like a vampire description, but Liam isn’t a vampire, or is he? *dramatic music plays*
I also really like this picture of Shawn Mendes because it’s a Polaroid! I love Polaroids! Also, it is really cute and so cool.
Share a snippet that involves a description of their appearance.
Wait, do I even have any snippets of Liam and his beautiful appearance? Nope. I’m sorry everyone, but I don’t have one at the moment. *blushes and walks away slowly*
What is the first thing people might notice about them?
Probably the faint twinkle in his eyes. Liam gets all of the girls just by looking at them with his big brown eyes.
What are their unique features? (Ex: freckles, big ears, birthmark, scars, etc.)
Liam has a birthmark behind his ear. It is on his neck, but it is right below his earlobe. He also has a mysterious scar on his arm from where somebody did something to him.
How tall are they? What is their build (Ex: stocky, slender, petite, etc.)
Liam is very built. He exercises a lot, so he is very fit and built up. In my mind, Liam is probably five feet and ten inches. I picture Liam as a tall slender guy who is very built and very strong.
What is their posture like? How do they usually carry themselves?
When Liam is feeling confident and strong, he walks the halls of his high school like he owns the place. He knows that he is like a radiant light. Everybody looks at him and they have to look away from being blinded by the light, but a lot of people can’t.
When Liam is feeling tired and let down, he slouches and people often come around him and try to cheer him up. It is mostly for the girls.
Your character has been seen on a “lazy day” (free from usual routine/expectations): what are they wearing and how do they look?
On a lazy day, you can see the true Liam. He is lying around his room in sweatpants and a t-shirt. His brown hair is a mess and clothes are piled in piles in his room. Liam is often stressed out from hours of studying in his bedroom. His hair gets messed up a lot of the time from running his fingers through his hair.
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?
Liam comes into school every morning looking like he woke up out of some magazine for men. He wears a nice collared shirt, blue jeans, and a pair of beat-up Converse. He spends a lot of time doing his hair and he may have used a lot of hair gel to make his hair super slick.
Liam’s trademark is probably his sunglasses. When he walks anywhere and he sees girls, he takes them off and gives them his signature smile. It is like the smiles on the toothpaste commercials.
Have they ever been bullied or shamed because of their looks? Explain!
When Liam was little, he was bullied because of his looks. Liam used to be a really nerdy kid who liked superheros and creating inventions, but when he became bullied and his parents got a divorce, everything changed for Liam and he felt like he needed to change himself.
Are they happy with how they look? If they could change anything about their appearance, what would it be?
Liam is happy of how he looks, but he wished that he could just be himself and everybody would stop judging people based on their looks.
Liam wishes that everybody could be their true self. He wishes that people would stop sorting each other into cliques. He has to remind himself that it is high school and it probably won’t last for long.
