Teenager Liam Martin alternately turns into Katy Perry, Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus, posting photos of it on Instagram - thrilling millions of followers.

Most users take turns taking snapshots of lunch, cute pet pictures and photos of romantic sunsets on Instagram. Yawn! A 17-year-old teenager from New Zealand is now showing what a REALLY cool Instagram account can look like: Under the synonym Waverider, Liam Martin places photos of himself online, on which he recreates celebrity pictures. And so convincing and funny that millions of users already follow him on the photo sharing platform.

Over a year ago, Liam Martin launched his Instagram page, which now has over 1.5 million followers. For his images, which get well over 400, 000 likes, the creative teen slips into the outfits of Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus or Jennifer Lawrence. Whether music video costume or red carpet robe, Liam Martin tinkers all looks with the help of props from the New Zealand equivalent of 1-Euro-Shop and various wigs. And with every Lookalike photo, he always surpasses himself, because for his makeovers Liam Martin does not miss out on even the smallest detail.
