This week, Twitter and Instagram have been taken over by the viral trend of Little Miss memes.
The popular trend uses characters from the famous Mr. Men books by English author Roger Hargreaves, which began publication in August 1971.
Each book is about a different character named after a specific emotion or action, such as Mr. Greedy, Mr. Happy, and Mr. Bump.
In 1981 he also started an accompanying series called Little Miss which uses female characters like Little Miss Sunshine, Little Miss Bossy and Little Miss Giggles.
Roger Hargreaves sadly passed away in 1998, but his son Adam carried on the streak that has been such an integral part of many British childhoods.
Now the Mr. Men and Little Miss books have inspired the latest big social media trend. Read on to find out what it is and how to create your own meme…
The viral Little Miss trend sees netizens using Roger Hargreaves characters to share their own emotions and personalities.
People use photos of the characters, like Little Miss Fun, Little Miss Trouble and Little Miss Fabulous and add their own captions.
Some funny examples of memes include “Little Miss Uses Big Words Incorrectly”, “Little Miss Back Pain”, and “Little Miss Passive Aggressive”.
The text can be whatever you want, it just has to relate to your personality and shed some light on who you are as a person to create your own Little Miss character – the funnier the better!
The men also started doing the same with the Mr. Men characters, but the male version didn’t go as viral.
How to create your own Little Miss memes
As the trend has taken over, many are wondering how to make their own Little Miss memes, and it’s not as easy as you might think.
Unfortunately, there is no Little Miss meme maker, generator or app that does this for you and you will need to develop your editing skills if you want to create your own.
First, you need to find the Little Miss character you want to use. No matter which one you choose, pick one that sounds like you or relates to the caption you’re going to write.
You can find a full list of Little Miss characters with pictures on Mr. Men Wiki here and a full list of Mr. Men characters here.
Next, capture a photo of the character from Google Images and insert it into a photo editing app that lets you add text. The most popular is Photoshop, but there are loads available on iOS and Android.
Then all you have to do is add your caption above the photo. Be sure to use black text and choose a font that resembles the one used on the original books to make it look more realistic.
Now save your Little Miss or Mr. Men meme and upload it to social media!
