INTRODUCTION: DESIGN OF CHARACTER'S LOOKS: WHAT IS ITS ROLE IN THE WHOLE CHARACTER DESIGN?
At first: No costume can save a badly made character. Your Average Joe/Jane character won't become any more interesting even if you make him/her to wear turquoise hair and odd-colored neon-color eyes. What makes character interesting is his/her INNER SIDE: his/her personality, history, skills, behavior pattern, odd traits, running gags, simply WHAT (S)HE IS. A rye bread doesn't become into a cream cake even if you put on it whipped cream and strawberries.
However, a good design may help the reader/viewer to notice, tell apart and remember the character more easily.

He was supposed to be a pirate, white opened shirt, black pants and matching boots, a big captain hat and for the finishing touch a sword. Gazing at it she recognized the sword as King Luca's (May he rest in peace) sword
Music BoxNot long after I came into my inheritance at Blackdown manor—built a few centuries before and only sporadically inhabited—I woke in the middle of the night and noticed the sound a music box drifting up from the wine cellar. What man in his right mind would leave a music box in a wine cellar? I mused, and upon recovering dressing gown and candleholder, I strode swiftly down the stairs by the shortest path thereto. I did not fail to notice that the shadows were oddly long for a night with a full moon, nor that the trees scratched oddly at the windowpanes, but mindful of what happened to those who listened and looked for too long, I merely quickened my step.MoreaGaara
A thorough search of the wine cellar showed that no music box was present, though the sound of it was louder, and still—somehow—from below where I now stood, at the lowest point in the recorded mansion. Of course the place was old, and old largely abandoned mansions, I mused, frequently had a
