How many times have you felt like your younger self while using TikTok’s shapeshifting effect? With this video-editing app, you can easily change the way you look to match one of your childhood heroes from Barbie, Bratz, or Fairy (or whatever else strikes your fancy). Here’s how to use the shapeshifting effect on TikTok for the ‘Barbie, Bratz, or Fairy’ challenge!
Download the app
Before you can use it, you need to download and open TikTok. The app is available for iOS and Android; both versions have been downloaded more than 1 billion times. It’s popular among younger kids but is also used by adults of all ages because it’s so easy to share short video clips that are funny or goofy. For example, you could film your head placed on a Barbie doll’s body or become a living animation with a variety of fun effects like rainbows or butterflies flying off your fingers. If you want a break from everyday life and just want some laughs or giggles in your feed—and maybe even show off your silly side—TikTok is an easy way to enjoy yourself while hanging out with friends!
Sign up with your phone number
The Barbie, Bratz or Fairy challenge involves signing up with your phone number in order to receive one of three pre-set filters for your video. If you get Fairy, you’re supposed to create a fairy tale where Barbie and Bratz are characters. If you get Bratz, then you’re supposed to create a story based on their world. And if you get Barbie, then make a fairy tale involving Barbie dolls. The shapeshifting effect isn’t available on other devices or platforms like computers or tablets so it is important to use your mobile device while using the TikTok app.
Follow celebrities and brands you like
If you don’t follow anyone famous or popular on TikTok yet, go ahead and do that first. Then make sure that you follow a few of your favorite brands as well (like maybe Barbie or Bratz?). When it comes time to post your own video using a shapeshifter effect (the only way you can do an official ‘Barbie, Bratz or Fairy‘ challenge), make sure that those people and brands are included in your videos. The more likes and views you get for their content within yours will be counted toward their total for your goal! If you want to see how it works in practice, check out some examples here.

Interact with other users
The latest viral challenge sweeping social media is centered around one popular photo-sharing app: TikTok. As of Sept. 15, 2019, Twitter users were posting pictures of their own attempts to complete it. But how does one achieve all three looks? nThe first step is easy — load up your profile and select a pre-existing video or Snapchat filter that transforms you into Barbie, then use the shape-shifting effect (like ears and eyes) to become a Bratz doll with oversized eyes and lips. Finally, take it up a notch by adding fairy wings using additional effects within TikTok (or Snapchat). If you want your photo or video to earn you major social-media cred, don’t forget about including #barbiebratzfairychallenge in your caption.
if you’re a fan of TikTok, chances are you’ve seen one or more of these challenging videos. They generally look something like what’s below—videos where women morph into different faces and bodies. They’re part of a viral new challenge called barbie vs bratz that sees users morphing themselves from Barbie to Bratz or fairy and back again in a minute or less.
Edit videos with music, effects, and filters
Once you find a picture of Barbie, Bratz or fairy (look up #barbiebratzfairychallenge on Instagram or Twitter), you can begin editing your videos. It’s pretty simple—just choose music that suits you and edit your videos with effects and filters. At times, it may seem like almost anyone can outshine people who have singing or acting background in these short clips. But remember that any celebrities likely had a significant amount of practice time before getting their shot at fame. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try—who knows what might happen?
