Being the daughter of a seamstress, I love fleshing out and dressing my characters. It’s the closest thing I have to playing with dolls.
This week, I sharing the simplest of my characters to dress, Dr. Amani “Manny” Phallo, The Director of the Center of Sanguine and Sentient Flora and Fauna Studies, AKA The Nursery.
He has been in three piece suits since the first time I wrote him. Impeccably dressed and groomed (the only difference between Campus and Field dress is the absence of a jacket and then rolling up his sleeves), he takes as much time and concentration in his appearance as he does in his work. This gives Micah ample opportunity to tease him.
Oh, and his physical appearance is based on Bryan Cranston.
