If it isn’t already obvious, we’ll take pretty much any opportunity to dress up. Whether it’s actually for Halloween or for no reason at all, our conceptual costume closet is always at the ready. This week, it’s all about dressing up as our fave new emoji! This isn’t a tutorial; this isn’t a think-piece — this is a straight-up “made you look” photo series of Brit + Co employees as emoji. I think we can all agree that it’s been a tough year, and these emoji might just be the best thing to come out of 2016.

Props to stylist Misty Spinney for thrifting her way to the perfect wardrobe pieces and styling each of these peeps up!

THE PREGNANT EMOJI

I’m seven months pregnant and continue to be basically obsessed with all things BUMP. So when I saw this new pregnant lady emoji I knew what had to be done.

The faux mom bob really takes this to a really REAL mom-to-be level.

THE FARMER

Forget farming being a male-dominated profession — this emoji says THE FUTURE (FARMER) IS FEMALE. Deal with it.

Who *doesn’t* jump for joy every time they pick up a bunch of carrots?

THE ASTRONAUT

This spaceman is very serious. To recreate his look, we enlisted the help of Misty’s son Elijah’s astronaut helmet.

Cue up the Daft Punk for this space jam.

THE FEMALE RUNNER

This running outfit is pretty on point. And Elena has totally nailed that statuesque running pose.

Whew, what a workout! It’s tough work to keep your hair perfectly in place while you run.

THE BOWIE-INSPIRED BOY AND GIRL

I personally screamed out loud with joy when I saw not just a male Bowie but a female one too! As someone that really transcended gender lines, it’s great to see multiple options for our favorite late starman.

Put on your red shoes and dance the blues, baby!

THE ARTIST

Being an artist is similar to being a French girl, obviously.
