About Misfit Casting Search


The project revolves around Gigi, a spunky plus sized teen, and her two best friends Shani and Ash. Gigi’s dream is to make clothes for people of all shapes and sizes, while she competes with her friends in a competition at their school Fashion High. This is a sweet and heartfelt story about friendship, inclusivity, and body positivity. 

Full character descriptions and sides can be found by clicking on the links below, actors should audition for one role only.

  Actors with physical disabilities and members of the LGBTQ+ community are encouraged to submit.

[GIGI] 12 to 17-years-old, Black, plus-sized girl with great hair, great style and a great attitude.  Gigi learned how to sew so that she could make clothes in her own size, and she’s bringing her “can’t keep me down” energy straight to Fashion High.  Her body positivity includes all shapes, sizes and types, but Fashion High might not be ready to keep pace with Gigi’s progressive attitude.  SERIES REGULAR GIGI self-tape link 

[SHANI] 12 to 17-years-old, Gigi’s best friend, a shy girl who has vitiligo (a condition in which pigment is lost from areas of the skin) and an eye for accessories.  She’s always using her hair to cover her face, despite Gigi’s urging to show off her natural beauty.  SERIES REGULAR SHANI self-tape link 

[ASH] 12 to 17-years-old, Ash is non-binary and defies categorization. A whip-smart student with an innate ability to read people, Ash quickly bonds with Gigi and Shari over their shared love of inclusivity in fashion.

[ARABELLA] 12 to 17-years-old, stylish, with a tongue sharper than sewing scissors. Arabella might be Gigi’s chief rival at Fashion High, but they have a mutual respect for each other.  SERIES REGULAR ARABELLA self-tape link
