A new TikTok trend, ‘What I’d wear if…’, has started to take off where esports fans show off outfits they’d wear as members of different organizations.

TikTok trends are a constant and evolving cycle of memes, music and dances. As the Beijing-based app has grown exponentially, so have the number of people making and watching TikToks. Accompanying this growth has been countless ‘trends’ – similar TikToks made around a common theme.

Although some have been denounced as inappropriate, most are enjoyed as harmless fun. And now there’s a new one for esports fans specifically.

TikTok has become one of the world’s most popular social media apps.

In this latest trend, TikTok stars showcase different outfits, that they’d wear if they were members of varying esports organizations. This includes some of biggest orgs in the world, such 100 Thieves, FaZe Clan and Luminosity Gaming.

One content creator, known as Amethystt, seems to have kicked things off by sharing her TikTok on Twitter, showing off what she’d wear to Twitch Con if she was a member of different organizations.

As a Luminosity member, she showcased pigtails and reflective sunglasses, while her 100 Thieves outfit was a red vest and black beanie, matching the colors of Nadeshot’s organization perfectly.

Another Twitch streamer, known as Bailey, shared her version of the TikTok trend. Her 100 Thieves outfit also includes a beanie, but a read one paired with an oversized black hoodie. Her FaZe outfit is also unique, while also adding in Team Liquid and TSM.

Whether the trend really takes off like some others remains to be seen, but it’s certainly a creative look at how fashion and esports can intersect.

100 Thieves is perhaps the brand leading this charge most, with almost an equal focus on their apparel as their esports success.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
