Every author needs a few good social media sites to procrastinate connect with readers on, and the common ones are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. One site that’s often overlooked, but allows for plenty of creativity is Polyvore. It’s a community powered social commerce website. Members curate products into a shared product index and use them to create image collages called “Sets”. Active Polyvore communities exist in the areas of fashion, interior design, and artistic expression.
As well as being a great tool for planning outfits and finding new styles, there’s a HUGE fandom element, with people creating sets for their favourite books, TV shows, and beloved fictional characters. There’s even a Tumblr dedicated to them, called Fandom Wardrobe.
Authors can branch out into making sets for their own characters and novels. With social media integration, so you can share your creations to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram etc. it’s a great way of creating unique content for your author social media pages and giving readers a little insight into your fictional world.
Here are some great fandom related sets from around the web!
