Barbie Selfie Generator How-To

The "Barbie" Selfie Generator Makes Life in Plastic Look Fantastic — Here's How to Use It

Ken and Barbie aren't the only ones having fun in Greta Gerwig's "Barbie" movie. On 4 April, Warner Bros. shared the official trailer for the film and posters featuring the star-studded cast — including Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Issa Rae, Nicola Coughlan, and Kate McKinnon. Following the classic Barbie adage that with imagination, life is your creation, fans are also getting a chance to play and create their own doll-inspired personas with a "Barbie" selfie generator.

On the custom website, fans of the multihyphenate figurine can upload photos to create their own "Barbie" posters, complete with glittery backgrounds and a quote that gives some insight into their magenta-infused dream lives. In promotional photos for the film, some stars have already been labeled with their "Barbie" identities. "This Barbie is a mermaid," Dua Lipa's poster reads. Meanwhile, Gosling's poster clarifies, "He's Ken," while Simu Liu's adds, "He's another Ken." Some are even more descriptive, like McKinnon's, which reads, "This Barbie is always in the splits."

A few fans have already gotten a head start and inserted themselves into the Barbieverse. "Friends fear she's going to rinse this photo generator to death," one Twitter user joked. Another person tweeted, "having too much fun with the barbie photo generator." If you're looking to try the selfie tool yourself, we highly recommend keeping angles and lighting in mind; after all, Barbie is a model/photographer/actor/pop star, among other things.

Ahead, see a step-by-step guide to creating your custom "Barbie" poster.
