Seventeen-year-old Liam Martin (aka waverider_) has amassed over 1,559,656 Instagram followers over the last eight months and has appeared on the Today show and ABC News websites by posting low-fi recreations of celebrity photographs.
He has mimicked Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and even Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games. Some of the celebrities have followed and complimented his work, and he uses his platform to discourage cyberbullying and encourage people to be more creative.
Yahoo shares more about the young mimic:
Make no mistake, a lot of time, energy — and money! — goes into each one of Martin's photos. He posts a new picture pretty much weekly and it takes that much time to execute his vision as far as coming up with a subject and buying the supplies. The teen estimates that he spends about $45 on props for each shoot, which take place at his family home "against one wall we use all the time."
The hardest one to recreate so far? "The Katy Perry photo from her 'Dark Horse' music video. It took me three hours" to get just right. The headpiece was made out of "M&Ms and string," he reveals. The shirt? It featured hand-cut pieces of paper attached to the nude-colored top. Fortunately, all his hard work paid off — the photo has 439,000 likes
"My mom and my nana were helping me with that one and it took hours," Martin recalls, adding that he often leans on them for assistance. "Most of the time my mom helps me get dressed up and she'll take the photo for me. If my [extended] family is over, my nana and my pops — my grandpa — will help me. The whole family loves it too. It's now become normal for them."

Pop starlet and rocket-boobed motivational singer Katy Perry has dropped a new music video for her single "This Is How We Do" from her album PRISM. Like most of her music it's pretty fluffy, but it's enjoyable and engaging fluff with a lot of bright visuals that are sure to put you in a happy mood.
Plus, her male backup dancers are dressed like Peewee Herman, and that alone is reason to watch, which you can do AFTER THE JUMP...
Openly Gay Singer Ferras Is First To Be Signed To Katy Perry's Record Label, Releases New Single: LISTEN
Katy Perry launched her own record company, Metamorphosis Music, this week. More exciting is that Ferras, an openly gay singer-songwriter, is the first artist signed to the label. Previously thought to be dating Adam Lambert, and named one of The Backlot's top 50 gay male musicians, Ferras is ready to make a name for himself with a self-titled LP (already released digitally by Metamorphosis).
Ms. Perry also had some kind words to share about the newly signed artist.
“I believe [Ferras] is going to be an important artist to watch unfold,” the “Birthday” diva said in a statement. “I am so ecstatic the world gets to hear his music now both online and on tour with me.” She’s referring to the fact that her friend/artists will open for her on the North American leg of her blockbuster Prismatic tour. But there’s more. The pair even duet on new song called “Legends Never Die”. Produced by Greg Wells, it’s a beautiful mid-tempo ballad with a soaring chorus that I can’t wait to hear performed live.
