A list of fictional characters for fashion inspiration

Our readers share their favourite fictional characters to take fashion inspiration from!

We asked, you answered! Inspiration can come from the most unexpected corners, and we wanted it to be fictional this time. What we learned from your suggestions: everyone loves a good bisexual anime moment, knives and bats are undervalued as fashion accessories, and you are all very horny after spending too much time inside. Enjoy this list of beautiful, scary, arousing, cute, seductive and mostly inspiring personas put together by the 1 Granary followers.
