Do you remember what it was like being a senior? The defining moment of your entire high school experience would be entirely dependant on how your student ID picture turned out. I don’t know about you, but my high school was insistent that we kept a “uniform” theme throughout our pictures, so they all turned out pretty lame.
However, since 2013, this high school has given its students permission to come dressed as their favorite TV, movie, or pop culture characters for their pictures! And, let me tell you, the results were amazing. I have compiled a list of my favorite memes, icons, and cult leaders just for you.
If we’re going to do this, we’re going to start it the right way. With Prince, of course.
Well played, Kayla, well played.
Move out of the way, Bear Grylls. If Russell isn’t the best wilderness explorer in the world, then I don’t know who is.
These are two people I never want to play with.
Well, there are plenty of snakes in high school, so it’s no wonder.
Inception at its best.
And, weirdly enough, she’s actually called Fiona.
This was literally my face throughout the whole of high school… especially while everyone was high during history class and the teacher didn’t even notice.
Now, this is what I like to call true friendship.
This Katt Williams rendition has us in stitches.
All the way down to the phone. That requires some serious dedication.
The high school life must have been a whole new world for Jasmine.
Sandra Bullock would be proud.
Andrew’s attempts are greatly appreciated by the Twitter community.
This could make him a star.
No one could ever out-do Nikolaj, but we appreciate the attempt.
Extra points for bringing an animated character to life.
It’s his facial expression that really kills me on this one. Accurate af!
If there’s one person that is sure to pass their exams with flying colors, it’s Hermione.
I mean, if you stripped the outer part of every high schooler down, you’d probably realize they’re all Jokers anyway…
In this house, we stan Harley (when she’s not being problematic!).
If Beyonce didn’t make an appearance, at least once, I would have been more than disappointed.
So thank you, Jordyn, for making me a happy girl!
And again, extra points for props!
This is bringing my childhood to life.
We stan Talia and Harry. Couples that meme together, stay together.
Sorry, but cancel this entire competition because, ding, ding, ding, we have our winner.
Rachel is really taking things to a whole other level.
Two of the most underrated characters in the whole franchise.
We love them.
This one is for all the Ferris fans out there.
Name someone more iconic than Regina. I’ll wait.
Thank God he didn’t come as the Holiday Armadillo!
Ten points for the stuffed monkey!
Marty McFly is back from the past/future? God knows!
“Not all heroes wear capes. Sometimes they buy matching belts and bags, come up with plans to defeat the fire nation, and once dated the Moon.”
If you haven’t seen anything wholesome today, then here you go! Best friends in real life dressing up as best friends from Toy Story?
Who knew Hagrid was also a student? You learn something new every day.
I hope Anika is a tad bit suaver than Tina… Or senior year is going to be terrible!
Is that a Red Bull can, I see? Ten points, Klarc!
Loving the oversized shades, Luke!
Here’s one of the teachers attempts at bringing an animated Mr. Clean to life! Creativity at its finest!
…And we would have passed senior year if it hadn’t been for those meddling grades!
(Ten points for stuffed Scoobie!)
I’m doubling up on points for the innovative idea of bringing broken plans for walls. Wow.
Twenty points for you, Kevin!
I agree though, I would rather be trapped in a tower than in school.
This costume is as accurate as it gets! How did he find that shirt? Because I want one.
Even if you had some red slippers, they wouldn’t be able to get you out of school.
The whole high school experience was probably more beastly than anything.
I don’t think Lord Farquaad would have the patience to deal with high school students…
Lowkey, though, this is an absolute look. I can see this making a comeback.
I’m slightly disappointed by the blue bow, though… It’s supposed to be red!
The caption is literally iconic.
Veruca Salt wouldn’t survive a day in an American high school. Those are just the facts.
Oh, is that hand-drawn golden ticket I see? Ten points, Elizabeth!
This is probably the best advice you could ever give a high schooler… mind your own damn business!
The Office has seen a fair share of weird-ass characters, but Mose wins first place. Credit where credit is due, especially for the beard.
There isn’t a plan on earth that could safely get you through high school, I’ll tell you that for free.
But this costume is genius.
Not literally, but that would have been a very convincing costume if he was. I’m impressed that Charmander even came to mind. Props!
I’ve never heard that one before.
Imagine a baby manages to graduate and you don’t? The concept is almost laughable. Not for those that don’t actually graduate though… Yikes.
It seems as though Captain America’s making a comeback.
Try masking this one with a cause.
“You even have the hairline to match,” someone commented.
But if JoJo could make a living from dressing like an oversized women-child, then forget about senior year and do the same thing, Molly.
…trust and a little fairy dust to get through senior year.
That’s a phrase you’ll be shouting throughout the whole of high school.
If you think Rihanna is an iconic meme, make way for Jones. She’s about to take the crown.
Don’t mess with Amya, unless you wanna open a big ol’ can of ass-whopping.
I hope Stitch managed to make it to his final year too!
I really want to appreciate the effort, I really do. But what is this?
Secondly, why is Pepper Pig sideways?
I just can’t. I can’t.
It doesn’t get any more accurate than this Margo Gru renidition.
You can almost hear this picture.
Tana Mongeau’s been stealing the spotlight with all her controversies, but Jessica’s gaining more popularity now.
If you don’t remember the moment that Lily found out that her best friend, Miley, was international pop sensation, Hannah Montanna, you really didn’t have a good childhood, did you?
Extra points for the pie smudges, Sydney.
If you haven’t said that line in 2019, you’ve not lived. I highly suggest you go around telling people you “love them 3000.”
It’s quite fulfilling, actually.
For those of you that might not be aware, according to the Urban Dictionary, a “shmack” can be a term used to refer to those who are extremely drunk, but enjoyable.
Ten points for the wooden cross. This costume would be nothing without it.
Of course, if Daphne was here, we had to have Velma.
Keep scrolling to see more of the Scooby-Doo gang!
Louise Belcher is in for a wild senior ride!
I’m having flashbacks to my childhood when this annoying voice would be all over our TV screens. And who could ever forget the iCarly episode that Fred starred in?
That’s a whole half an hour that I will never get back.
But if you’re looking for a good insurance deal… Allstate is the place to go.
