This One Guy Can Literally Transform Into Any Celebrity And It's Scarily Good

Kylie Jenner to Yoncé, Lil Ced can do it all.

This is Cedric Maddox, aka @lilced08, and he can literally re-create ANY celebrity look!

We were at a total loss for words when he pulled off this spot-on photo of Kylie Jenner for Paper magazine.

Maddox tells BuzzFeed it normally takes 30 minutes to put his looks together, from start to finish. He says, "I use normal stuff I find laying around the house. Every now and then I may go get something for less than $5."

And somehow, he even managed to nail Blac Chyna's maternity shoot for Elle...even down to the tattoos.

Maddox is inspired by different things when he sees a photo. After looking at this shoot with Blac Chyna, he tells us he wanted to re-create it because "she takes ownership of herself, and she genuinely looks happy; no matter what anyone says about her."

This Kim K look, tho?! One word, two syllables: STUN. NING!

It's not every day that one can match Rihanna, our generation's most prominent fashion icon. But for Lil Ced, it's NOTHING!

For this Rihanna transformation, he used moving plastic that he purchased for about $4 at a hardware store, "and I got that baby from Family Dollar."

We knew his skill was too real, though, when we couldn't tell who was The Queen and who was Ced in this side-by-side. They're basically twins.

Seriously, we can't think of a better way to honor Solange's iconic cover art for A Seat at the Table.

And if you think he's limited to only channeling celeb women, think again, because he KILT this Young Thug moment!

Tbh, if you can transform into THEE Tina Turner, you can transform into anyone.

"I started recreating celebrity looks because every time I turned on the news or got on social media, there was always so much negativity," Maddox tells us. "I thought to myself, even if you don't have 3,000 followers and you only have three, that's three people you could be helping; putting a smile on their faces. That gives me motivation."
