Aww, YAY! That is AWESOME. Okay, so if I were to go as Lilac I’d hit up my local thrift stores looking for a green evening gown. Of course, she wears other colors pre-crash, but that’s the outfit she spends most of her time in. I’d wear the gown and then a pair of work boots (the ones Tarver finds for her). If you’ve already got red hair, you’re good to go there—if not, grab a wig or some temporary dye. Any style is fine! If it were me I’d stick some twigs and leaves in my hair too from tromping through the woods. ;) And makeup… depends. If you’re going pre-crash (which means no boots) then dramatic smokey eye and red lips is what I picture. But if you’re going post-crash you want more natural, since Lilac post-crash didn’t have makeup with her!
You are so sweet… thank you! I’m down with a cold and you’ve absolutely made my day, which, trust me, is hard to do right now!
(And never say never. Stick your trilogy in a drawer somewhere and write something new, and someday you may want to come back to these books and polish them up! At the very least, pat yourself on the back, because writing a trilogy—published or no—is a lot of hard work!)
