A Pinterest Story

I love seeing popular social media genres repurposed into something playful, into a story, into a game. Tiffany Beveridge‘s Pinterest board My Imaginary Well-Dressed Daughter is an example. It’s just a Pinterest board, but filled with fashion photos of children, each captioned by Tiffany as though they were photos of her fictional daughter “Quinoa” and her friends. The result is not exactly a narrative, but a series of snapshots that describes an idea of a group of elitist fashion-hungry children while poking fun at the fashion industry. And people like it: right now the board has over 20,000 followers. Do you know any other playful “stories” like this in social media?
