The Teen Instagrammer Who Recreates Celeb Looks is Gonna Be Your New Fave
If you thought the Elsa lookalike was good, this is waaaaaay better. Liam Martin, a 17-year-old teenager from Auckland, dresses up as lots of different celebrities then posts the impressive looks he’s recreated on Instagram, under the name waverider_.
Liam’s celebrity memes not only demonstrate a careful eye for detail, but also some impressive costume-making skills. (He needs to be at Comic-Con.) Unlike the Human Barbie, Liam doesn’t spend thousands of dollars in plastic surgery, or rely on a starvation diet to nail his celebrity impersonations. He carefully researches his photos but told Mashable, that he sources most of the supplies for his looks from the “$2 shop.” According to an interview with Stuff, his mom is his photographer, he Photoshops the images himself.
The resulting pictures are as hilarious as the Reddit dude who recreated all the WTF looks from men’s Fashion Week. Take a look at some of his LOL transformations and you’ll understand why he has 1.5 million followers (and counting):
