A mum has taken to dressing up her daughter in extraordinary costumes while she sleeps.
Laura Izumikawa then posts the pictures of her four-month-old daughter Joey Marie to Instagram.
The little girl has been dressed up as movie stars, Pokemon characters and an Olympian.
'Joey slept so deeply so I thought it'd be fun adding little props around her just to send some hilarious pictures to our parents and friends,' says Laura.
She has dressed up her daughter as Slash (above) and a Hawaiian traveller (below) by using items around the house and borrowed from friends.
I grew up in New Zealand, moved to London in my early 20s to work on British newspapers then moved to Australia when I was pregnant with my first child. I write a newspaper column, celebrity interviews and a parenting page. I also do TV and radio commentary, podcasting and host corporate events. I’ve also published a book on parenting, The Smallest Things. However, my greatest role – and the one I’m most proud of – is parenting my daughters, Eliza and Lilibelle, who are 17 and 14.
