I went back and forth on whether to do this post. Even though the characters are very complex, these are pretty simple looks. The world they live in does not leave much room to accessorize. In the end, I decided to post this, because I wanted more time to talk about these characters.
I'm having a hard time explaining this look without sounding like I'm writing an English paper. So let me say that these are earthy colors because Puck is the island. I'm not going to count the number of times Puck tells us she is wearing her brown pants, but rest assured that it is a lot. Puck also wears a green hooded sweater that her mother knitted and a hat she knit herself (although not well). I added gloves, because it is November and her hands are probably cold.
As you may have guessed, Sean is the sea. He is constantly described as wearing a blue jacket and for everything else I tried to stay with grays and blues--ocean colors. I like the jacket because it has a lot of pockets and Sean has many things to keep in his many pockets.
And my favorite character who isn't Sean or Puck... the nosy, but lovable American, George Holly. I'm not sure why I love him so much, but I love him a lot. Puck and Sean are always commenting on his clothes, because this guy has a ridiculous wardrobe for an island made of dirt and hard work. His pants are always described as being creased or pressed. Whenever he appears, he wears a white sweater and white shoes. His jacket is never described in detail, but I think George Holly could totally pull this blue one off.
My review will be up Monday along with details on how to win the extra signed copy of The Scorpio Races that I picked up at the signing I attended this week.
