Instagram user Waverider (real name Liam Martin) spends his days dressing up as female celebrities like Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus and then posts pictures of his impersonations on the photo sharing site.

The 17-year-old has already amassed almost 1.5 million followers and just last year he was "amazed" how he even managed to reach 110,000.

"I never thought I'd get that many," he told New Zealand news site Stuff last year. "I feel quite cool, I feel like Hannah Montana.

"I'm very weird and open. I think that's why I get so many followers, because I'm myself," he added.

But as we all know, with great popularity comes great responsibility. Liam confessed he feels obligated to post an image at least once a day.

"It's a thing: I have to get home, I have to post a photo. Even if I'm out, I have to go home and post a photo. That's how much I put my time into it."

He recently told Metro how he came up with the idea, saying: "I first got the idea to do these type of photos about eight months ago.

"I liked the idea that not many guys would do what I do, and it's something very different. People's reactions to the photos were great, so I just kept doing them!"

While he's dressed up as Cara Delevingne, Lorde and Selna Gomez - to name a few - he does have his favourites.

"Miley Cyrus is always a fun time to dress up as, and everyone enjoys the Miley Cyrus ones! I also love dressing up as Ariana Grande, and she follows me on Instagram so it's a cool feeling knowing she can see it."
