We are looking for a male and female, ages 24 - 32 to feature in an online BuzzFeed branded content video. Diversity — all shapes, ethnicities welcome. You must have a priceless older photo of yourselves wearing an outfit from a dated fashion trend or style (ie goth, punk, or simply very bold!). Each person needs to be relatable — meaning they feel like your friend, a regular person. No models or unattainable standards. BuzzFeed look for warm and open personalities, someone who’s comfortable on camera and fun.

The photo must be a selfie or taken by a friend or family member.
The photo could show the person in a ridiculous outfit that was earnest when they wore it. Think something from a particular “phase” they went through during their teenage years. Or it could be them doing something they perceived as COOL AF. Ideally this involves them making a ridiculous expression or pose.
NO cosplay or fancy dress.
NO recognisable pop culture IP (e.g. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings).
NO school photos or photos taken by a professional.
NO backgrounds that are impossible to recreate in studio (e.g. standing in front of a famous landmark, or in a foreign country). Nondescript bedroom or interior is okay. Outdoor is okay.
NO highly visible brand logos.

The perfect cast member has an amazing story to go along with their hilarious photo. Perhaps they can recall how many selfies they took in order to get the perfect moody expression, or they remember dying their hair a color to match the design of their myspace. Perhaps the photo was taken before a big social event, or their first date, and this “look” was what they’d put together to feel confident for the event.
Relatablity is key. We want photos with a story attached, a story that will resonate with people and make them think “omg I totally did something similar.” Nostalgia is key. Through our photos, we are capturing a life truth: that we go through phases of style as we mature, and we are often embarrassed by decisions our past self thought were “cool.” This is something we can all laugh at, as we all have our embarrassing photos.
