Real heroes wear masks… face masks. Show us Batman, Superman, or another caped crusader helping out at home with daily or parental tasks or as a front-line worker while wearing a hospital-grade surgical or cotton face mask.
Eventually (maybe years from now) face masks won’t be needed as much as they are now, but it would be such a waste if they all went to landfills. USING AN OLD FACEMASK THAT IS NO LONGER USABLE, devise a fashion accessory for your pet. – Emily
Make a set of jewelry or a crown from paperclips – one so ostentatious, it would make Queen Elizabeth blush. (You can adorn it with anything you have around the house as “jewels.”)
Rachel Miner brings all the unicorns to the yard. Let’s see the largest gathering of unicorns watching her panel! Take a photo of yourself, dressed as a unicorn (homemade costume is perfect if you don’t have a unicorn costume in your closet for some strange reason), watching her #FestivalAndBeyond Livestream to benefit Random Acts’ COVID Relief efforts. Bonus points: make a donation to Random Acts to help support COVID relief, and share the two photos side-by-side.

While you’re working from home, your conference calls show a professional background of books, flowers, artwork. But we all know deep down that that’s a facade: we all are just struggling to hold it together and sometimes, things like cleanliness and orderliness fall by the wayside so that may not be an entirely accurate depiction of what the rest of your abode looks like. What happens when the camera is rotated off your video conference call 180 degrees? Show us – shot dramatically as a tense suspension short film. – Marty
Display a roll of toilet paper like the treasure it is. – Dana D.
As all Gishers know, “Zoombie” is the latest in zombie videoconferencing. Let’s see one.
Springtime straw hats are overplayed. Show us the new hot trend: eco-friendly sun hats made from the weeds from your garden.
Behind the Scenes
Nap. Make it a good one.
Use household items (books, boxes, kitchen utensils, anything…) to create one of the natural or man-made wonders of the world and take a selfie in front of it as if you’re a tourist. Feel free to use forced perspective to speak to its majestic grandeur.
