Hi all,

At Sonora, we allow characters to have a 'faceclaim.' This is an actor/celebrity who you choose to represent your character, so that others can know more easily what they look like.

If you sign up for an author account (available free through the home page) you are able to create profiles for you characters and upload a picture. Even if you don't do this, people can consult this list to know what your character looks like.

Please bear in mind that you characters are aged 11-18. You are permitted to change faceclaim once only, and it is preferable that you find someone who has been in the public eye during a suitable range of their life to have age appropriate pictures.

On the whole, we prefer minimal reuse of faceclaims. However, in order to ease the pressure on new authors, we will be releasing some claims that were used a very long time ago. Please consult the lists below to see whether a claim is currently in use, or has been used in the past.

There are lots of lists on IMDB etc of teen actors if you need to browse for ideas, and those of us who have been doing this a while can probably offer help and advice in chatzy if you don't know how to find someone suitable.

Let us know if you have any questions.
