If BeForever Characters Were Girls Today

if-1

Hello, I hope you’re having a good day! :)

I was wondering what the BeForever characters would be like if they were teens in 2018, so I created collages for all of them based on their hobbies. All of the currently available BeForever dolls are on here, except for Nanea Mitchell. I haven’t read her books and the personality section on her American Girl Wiki page is blank, so I thought it would be best to leave her off.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking at these! They took several days to create, but I think it was worth it.

Which character are you most similar to? I’m a mix of Samantha, Kaya, and Melody, with a bit of Rebecca thrown in (I love theatre and Cher Horowitz).

Before I go, here’s an update on the new doll situation: she’s now supposed to arrive sometime tonight or on Saturday. So you guys will have to wait a little longer to find out who she is. Sorry. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  1. Love these. I think you did a great job compiling these collages and modern personas for the BeForevers.

    I think you could pull off a Nanea without reading her books. Just take a peak at her collection and think about what she may have to do to after tragedy strikes her home.

  2. Wow, this is so cool! I share at least one trait in each, although I am most like Josefina. That is funny because she is the only Beforever doll I have, not counting Caroline.
