  • Hello friends

  • and welcome to another video

  • This week I'm gonna be dressing like seven

  • different Youtubers

  • Now, as you guys may know,

  • I've done a few seven day outfit challenges in the past

  • Like dressing in different outfits that represent my

  • zodiac sign for a week,

  • dressing like different store mannequins for a week,

  • and even dressing like my boyfriend Tyler for a week

  • and I thought it would be fun

  • to try another one of these style challenges

  • but this time with the styles of other Youtubers

  • Just to see what it would be like to retire

  • my bat wings for a time

  • and try on some other Youtuber 'fits.

  • So I decided to do some investigative research

  • a nice way of saying

  • intense internet stalking

  • to see if I could come up with

  • seven outfits that capture the trademark

  • looks of these Youtubers

  • without one: just wearing their merch

  • or two: asking them for advice

  • None of them know I'm doing this

  • and I hope they're not mad.

  • Now, a couple of other prefaces

  • This isn't just a list of my favorite Youtubers

  • or the only Youtubers I like

  • Though I will say I do watch and enjoy

  • all of the following people's videos

  • so no shade to them

  • Or to anyone for that matter.

  • As a general rule, I chose Youtubers

  • that I think present a distinct, personal style

  • that I could replicate. So with that,

  • let's get to dressing like other Youtubers for a week

  • So for our first Youtuber outfit,

  • we went with Simply Nailogical

  • aka Cristine Rotenburg

  • HOLO

  • Tyler: (wheeze)

  • So Cristine's channel started off focused on nail art tutorials

  • and though she still does do those occasionally,

  • she's also branched out to a wider range of topics

  • including banana hacks

  • and spreading the message of "holosexuality"

  • aka becoming aroused by holographic stuff.

  • Cristine: "it's holo biiitch"

  • For this outfit I repped Christine's home and native land, Canada, pretty hard.

  • Tyler: Act Canadian.

  • Oh I'm Sooorry

  • Tyler: That's your Canadian impersonation?

  • That's my best Canadian impersonation.

  • Tyler: Very Apologetic.

  • Apologetic with an accent

  • With a sweatsuit and shirt from the Canadian brand, Roots

  • Which is a favorite of hers as you can see on her instagram and in many of her videos

  • I'M JUST A SENTIMENTAL SOCK, please, Roots give me a brand deal

  • Overall, it seems that Cristine favors comfy wear with long sleeves, long pants. And when she retreats fully into the hood of her sweatshirt

  • She calls herself a sock

  • Cristine: "I'm just a sock!"

  • Tyler: You look like foreskin

  • This is a different iteration of Sockfiya

  • It's Cristine Sockenburg

  • As for the shoes, we needed some item of holographic clothing

  • and I find that besides her nails

  • Cristine's feet are where she most often expresses her holosexual zeal

  • Cristine has like black adidas superstars that have holo stripes, we couldn't find those but these are more holo, so...

  • As I show off my nonpainted nails

  • In terms of accessories aside from her love of holo and socks

  • Cristine also loves tea and not just the metaphorical kind

  • So I feel like while I'm dressed as Cristine

  • Oh yeah

  • And her boyfriend Ben, brings it to her at seemingly any hour of the day

  • Cristine: BEYYN. BEYYN. Is that my tea?

  • BEYYN. Is that you?

  • Tyler?

  • Tyler: What?

  • Where's my tea?

  • (haha) Why did I sound like Cookie Monster when I tried to do that?

  • Tyler: Does Cristine sound like Cookie Monster?

  • I think there's also a hint of Yoda in my "Cristine asking for tea" voice

  • Tyler. Tyler?

  • Tyler: Alright, Imma spare the audience from hearing that anymore let's go get the tea

  • Tyler

  • So tea in hand and larynx thoroughly gargled,

  • the only thing we were missing to complete our transformation into Cristine

  • was a cat as lovingly harassed as her cat Menchie is

  • Crusty gang. Crusty gang. Crusty gang. Crusty gang.

  • Did I do it right?

  • Listen up Menchie,

  • I don't know if you're ready for this,

  • but, Crusty is coming for your whiskers.

  • So for my next outfit,

  • I dressed up like Casey Niestat.

  • So Casey Niestat is a daily vlogger from New York City,

  • who's often seen bouncing around the streets of Manhattan

  • either on one of his morning runs, or cruising on an electric skateboard.

  • Hey! Someone took my board!

  • He's also known for his signature camera work,

  • scenic time lapses, and montages.

  • How much do you think I need to film for it to be enough for a time lapse?

  • So for his outfit, I chose a black suit with a skinny tie, and Vans sneakers.

  • I would say that Casey appears very frequently in suits and tuxes.

  • He used to wear them more for special events, earlier on

  • but now a days, he's wearing suits a lot.

  • So, I'm in a suit. Tyler: Yeah!

  • Safiya: And there's a plane by overhead.

  • How expensive is your most expensive seat?

  • And of course, it wouldn't be a Casey Niestat outfit without his custom sunglasses.

  • Which he's almost always wearing, rain or shine.

  • The reason that Casey says that he wears these sunglasses all the time,

  • is because he doesn't like looking into the lens or the viewfinder and getting cross-eyed

  • which I completely understand, because that happens to me all the time

  • so I actually like the sunglasses approach.

  • We made our pair by replicating the instructions in our tutorials.

  • Basically, you take some sunglasses, put painter's tape over the back lenses,

  • spray them down in primer, and then scrape it off in a haphazard manner with a popsicle stick.

  • I haven't taken the painter's tape off yet so I can't see anything.

  • Tyler: They look good though!

  • Safiya: They smell even better.

  • Tyler: They smell toxic.

  • Safiya: Ooo, yeah.

  • Safiya: Casey's hair is also a pretty signature part of his style

  • so there's absolutely no way I can actually replicate Casey's hair,

  • because he has naturally curly hair, or at least I assume that he does

  • and my hair is much longer and straight.

  • But he did have a man-bun phase.

  • So I'm gonna go for like, a crunchy bun.

  • This is Aqua Net hairspray which I still have from our 1987 video.

  • I don't think he actually uses Aqua Net hairspray, but I thought it would give my hair that kind of crunchy looking effect.

  • Did you just spray one spot?

  • Though I would say that the hair and sunglasses

  • are pretty consistent elements of Casey's style

  • Casey doesn't always wear a suit, obviously

  • He has a more casual office look

  • and also an active running look

  • Safiya: 7 minute mile is pretty good for me

  • Tyler: (hahaha) You've never ran a 7 minute mile

  • Safiya: In high school I ran a 7:49

  • Tyler: Get the f*ck out of here

  • Safiya: And occasionally, he wears a Youtube varsity jacket and snowpants

  • and gets dragged around in the middle of a blizzard

  • to the tune of Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York"

  • Start spreading the news

  • I'm leaving today

  • I want to be a part of it, New York

  • Now I did this for quite a while

  • longer than I'm proud of

  • Tyler: Are we getting hit by a car? (laughs)

  • Tyler: I'm presuming you're going to heavily reference this video, right?

  • No. I'm gonna give no visual aids whatsoever

  • If you don't know the reference, get out

  • Though for Casey, I think it was more of a one-time thing

  • but I just couldn't help myself, I like Frank Sinatra

  • So for my next outfit

  • I dressed like LaurDIY

  • aka Lauren Riihimaki

  • I can't tell you for sure that that's how you pronounce her name

  • but you know, we're both part of the "hard to pronounce" club

  • so I feel like I get a little pass

  • As her name implies,

  • Laur does a lot of DIY crafts and hacks on her channel

  • And besides tutorials

  • She also posts DIY battles, an occasional music videos

  • such as the rap song "DIY Queen"

  • and weekly vlogs

  • which often times feature her boyfriend Alex Wasabi

  • Together, they have been dubbed "Laurex"

  • Tyler: Hey, Saf Safiya: Yes?

  • Tyler: What would our, like, uhhh.... Safiya-Tyler name conjunction be?

  • Safiya: Safty

  • Tyler: What about Safler. Safty?
