Creative Blog: For some writers, a character's attire is little more than an afterthought. Not so, with our most recent creators. Both Woolf and Cunningham use clothing and physical appearance to convey meaning in their respective works.
Use Polyvore, or another tool or physical materials, to create a wardrobe collage suitable for a character in either Mrs. Dalloway or The Hours. You may try to create a historically and textually accurate collection or you may choose instead to select contemporary equivalents. Explain your selections with regards to conveying meaning, not merely literal interpretations.
Added Challenge: Use physical wardrobe pieces and photography to do the same.
