1. Yoga Instructor

You need: Comfy clothes, fake tattoos and beaded bracelets.

Pros: Comfortable and approachable.

Cons: Makeup lovers this one may not be for you as I have yet to take a yoga class from an instructor wearing smoky eyeliner and tons of mascara.

How to act: Kind, encouraging, and totally zen-ed out.


2. Tris from Divergent

You need: Black tank, leather jacket, black pants, boots, and to draw a bird tattoo on your neck.

Pros: Cool and trendy.

How to act: 40% scared and 60% brave.


3. Cheryl Strayed from WILD

You need: Hiking boots, a backpack, and grit.

Cons: The backpack is bulkier than the purse you would bring (but now you can tote more stuff!)

4. Jane Goodall

You need: Khaki everything and a chimpanzee stuffed animal.

Pros: Smart and respected.

Cons: You have to carry a stuffed chimp all night.

5. Alex from Flashdance
