WordPress for Original Characters?

Postby AxxKat » Thu Dec 29, 2016 2:44 pm

I saw Tals wordpress for her characters and the polyvore sets she had made for them and fell IN LOVE! I always liked putting the sets together but didn't know where the heck I could put them.

That being said, I also super like seeing other peoples original characters and occassionally doing fanart of them. So, if you have one, please please please post it here! I'd love to follow it! :)

If you don't have a wordpress for your OCs I super 110% encourage you to make one. It's convenient to organize and use as a reference when you're asking people to do a commission or trade,etc.

it's a website builder, but it has a really good layout to blog and links fire you to polyvore. there might be other websites like this, but it was super duper easy imo to set up. also i like that you can follow other wordpress blogs too

Oh man I want to do something similar to this, right now I only have a DeviantART group for my and Holly's characters or my pins that serve as inspiration for Hap. But I have a ton of polyvore sets I've made for them lingering on my polyvore.
Hmmmm. Decisions, decisions.

Yasssss. Everyone do it! WordPress is love <3

Here's my OC blog! And also my doll site, just because :D

I have to admit, Axxkat was the one who inspired me to get off my butt and work on mine again, so now I've got update spam all this week =)

i don't have a wordpress or anything for my oc's (but from the sound of it i maybe should get one??), the closest thing i have are two 'pinboards' (is that what they're called? mine is set at swedish so i'm not sure) at pinterest where i collect ~~aestetics~~ for two of my oc's; here for davy and here for waylon. (and i also have a lot of 'pinboards' for mainly dc comics aesthetics, i really love collecting them pictures for some reason)

but like, i probably should have somewhere (maybe wordpress?!) where i collect like reference pictures of actual outfits and stuff, and not just random 'aesthetics' pictures.

Omg I love pinterest. I'm on it. If anyone feels like watching the morass of unrelated pins I put up, my username is the same over there.

This could be fun though, and easy place to collect ideas for characters.

Along a similar vein, I have recently started to use Charahub to showcase my characters. It is not the best at displaying images, in my opinion, but I do love the format, which is ideal for organization. :D

i used to use polyvore all the time for dolling inspiration when making outfits or needing references. then when i became a fashion writer I used it to look up the latest releases and well write/report on them. once i left my job with that site i started blogging on my own for a bit and used polyvore to put together holiday sets when there wasn't much to write about and used them as "guidelines" different styles for different events.

every now and then i would post based on my oc's but that blog is now defunct...however since i have room on my current site i could always start posting there....hm might do that tomorrow

I am a huuuuuuge Charahub fan, though I haven't logged-in in a while. (I really should...)

Lol double post, yolo.
https://mortalitasi.wordpress.com/ here's mine for now! I haven't even come close to fully putting up all my work or gifts or anything like that, but it's a good start. I got lazy after a while but I'll keep working on it.

I bookmarked the site but Not sure what I'd use it for.
//rarely finishes art

Maybe in the future I may use it.
