“Originally You” Open Customer Casting Call

Here at Babe Original, we’ve made it our mission to celebrate the originality found in all of us. The freckles on your nose, the dimple on your cheek, the way your eyes light up when you laugh out loud. Everything that makes you unique - it's originally you.  

With that in mind, we decided to do something different this year by holding our *FIRST EVER* open casting call to celebrate what is “Originally You.” We opened applications to real Babe Original customers from all over the U.S. - no modeling experience required. In our application form, we asked respondents questions like:  

  • “What is one thing that is unique and original about you?”  

  • “How has your mindset toward beauty evolved throughout your life?” 

  • “If you had to sum up your unique perspective in life in one sentence, what would it be?” 

  • “What are your favorite Babe Original products?” 

  • “How long have you been a customer of Babe Original?” 

And can we just say, we were BLOWN AWAY by your responses! We received over 1,200 applications from our Babe community speaking to what made them original and why they wanted to be a part of this shoot. And while we couldn’t say yes to everyone, our team spent weeks narrowing down the list to 10 individuals we felt embodied both their own originality and the authentic community that we’ve worked hard to build with Babe Original. These cast members were from all across the country and ranged from age 19 to age 59. 

We sent notes to our 10 cast members letting them know they’d been selected and after a lot of internal (+ external) squealing on both sides, we were full speed ahead to our IRL meetup! A few weeks later, we brought them all to Babe HQ in Dallas, Texas, for a fun day of photo-shooting, bracelet-making, and relationship-building.  

TL;DR – BEST day ever!  

We loved getting the chance to connect with just a handful of the thousands of amazing and unique individuals who make up our Babe community – you included! After all, no one can do you like you can.
