So do you get really into you characters appearance - and I'm speaking beyond hair and eyes. I'm talking skin shade, height, birthmarks, weight, body type... and of course clothing. Personally I want to know as much about my character as I can. I love going through google images to find the perfect jacket or shirt or pair of shoes for my character. I wrote out long descriptions on what they look like. Though I never bother to put all of this information in my stories - I try to limit in-book character descriptions to basic hair and eyes, skin colour, and a vague idea of their clothing style, I love knowing all of this. I feel it makes my character a lot more real. For example, my MC Siena has freckles all the way down her arms. This doesn't come out in the book, cuz it's not important to the story, but I feel it is important for the author to know their characters in-depth.
