I love the sensation I get when I take a perfect selfie. “But Cane, you still look amazing!” you might say. That is right. However, some selfie types make me look much better than others.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to selfies. Even if a selfie-style is common, it can not be the most flattering. This is why new ideas are always welcome.
I’ve compiled a list of my current top five selfie ideas. Try them out and see what you think. I hope you find at least one of them to be your new favourite.
Fried Chicken is the Selfie Style.
This is the one I believe will be a big hit! “Oh yeah, that was the year of the Fried Chicken Selfie,” people would say as they reflect on 2021.
This one looks great on everyone! It’s that simple. Take a selfie with a fried chicken piece. There are no gimmicks. There are no tough stunts. There are no special effects or filters needed.
Allow these ideas to motivate you to try out new selfie types, since one size does not suit everything!
I’ll see you on Instagram, @commandercane. Monday through Friday, I publish a new webcomic. On Instagram…I adore that word.
Paper Doll Selfie Style
Paper dolls are folk art toys that provided for extensive dress-up play. My friend Luna drew facial expressions, fun eyes, and brows for me to add to my selfies, taking a page from their playbook!
This technique can be used in a variety of ways. Add hats, ornate hair accessories, bow ties, ostentatious jewellery, or anything else you can think of.
I’d like to thank Luna for not only drawing the expressions for me, but also for assisting me in keeping them in place while I used my remote shutter to take the selfies. Thank you so much, Luna.

The Technological Challenge of Selfie Style
“Cane, this isn’t a selfie,” I know you’re saying. It is, however. I borrowed a small underwater drone along with the personal submersible. Luna piloted the drone into place by connecting my phone to it. Then I took a selfie from inside the mini-sub using my remote shutter.
This type of equipment may not be available to you. And, to be frank, it wasn’t for me, but that’s part of the fun. Finding creative ways to take a selfie with technology adds a layer of intrigue to your selfie tale!
Often take precautions to avoid injuring yourself or others. Keep an eye out for plants to avoid stepping on them while you prepare to take your selfie.
Selfie Style: Don’t Be Afraid To Exaggerate
Taking a selfie with the camera 12 inches (30 cm) away from your face causes perspective distortion, which can exaggerate the shape of your nose by up to 30%.
With dogs, this portrait style became very popular. Many people, however, consider this to be a “dog only” selfie type. It’s not the case. When you’re with your mates, it’s a lot of fun to embrace this kind of exaggeration. This is for those who want to laugh and enjoy themselves.

Selfie Style—Say It Clear And Loud
During my research for this post, I discovered that hand movements are not always what they seem to be.
Instead, use emojis to express yourself. Emojis are simple, precise, and universal. I do this by printing the emojis I want to use on a card and holding them up in this manner!
