Parent dresses child up as pop culture characters, wins internet

Having a baby has a lot of negative points: sleep goes out of the window, your time is no longer your own, crying, nappies and the general exhaustion of being on-call 24 hours a day.

On the other hand, they are tremendously good, fun props for playing around with.

And this positive point has been illustrated by Los Angeles photographer Laura Izumikawa Choi, who had a baby girl Joey, four months ago. Luckily, she is a heavy sleeper, so Laura has used the opportunity to dress Joey up in a range of fantastic pop culture outfits, from Stranger Things characters to Pokémon.

Take a look at her best Instagram posts below - we're waiting for her to fully meta and dress her up as a Rugrat.
