Hi, I'm Lauren and this is me. It's a tiny animated computer version of me, but I've looked at myself in the mirror once or twice and gosh darn it, THIS GIRL IS ME. How did this happen, you ask? Well, listen up and I'll tell you.
Last night as I settled into bed, I started browsing Vine. I noticed that a teen or two who I follow had these little animations.
I wanted one, so I sifted through Vine comments to get to the bottom of what the app that created these masterpieces was. I found it.
I searched for something called "Huanshi," though the app also goes by another name — MyIdol. Whatever you put in, this will show up:
The app is literally completely written in Chinese. I don't speak Chinese, so I pushed a bunch of random buttons until I got to a part where it asked me to take a picture of myself. I trust that you will also push the correct random buttons and get there.
It was 11:30 at night, and as I mentioned I had just gotten into bed. So with my bad lighting I uploaded this photo:
BEFORE MY VERY EYES THIS APPEARED:
I was a boy! A real boy! Side note: I'm currently living at home. I was laughing so hard my mom came into my room wondering what was going on. She then told me to go to bed. I didn't listen.
I saw a button on the bottom left hand corner that had a little jacket icon on it. I clicked it and it brought me to the customization area. I was about to become ~me~. First I wanted to change my hair.
Though I was enjoying my time as a bald boy, I wanted to look more like myself. With the help of friends on the web I figured out that the two symbols on the top of this page were boy/girl. Whatever the red is highlighting is your gender.
This is me as a boy, and as a girl. I love them both equally!
