Kittens dressed up as characters from pop culture


There's a never-ending debate in the Stylist office that goes something like this: are cats or dogs better?

While some prefer to stay on the fence (you know who you are), the team is divided 50/50.

Cat-lovers like to cite the fact that their feline friends are loved all over the Internet with amusing pictures constantly cropping up all over the place (this one's a favourite).

While those who are of the canine persuasion, argue that dogs are just much more reliable and loving, and cats are just, well, mean.

However, today, cats might just have the upper hand with this incredibly cute set of pictures of kittens dressed up as characters from pop culture.

In the images below, you can see cats donning costumes to look like Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz, Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings, Princess Leia from Star Wars and the Doctor from Doctor Who (the 11th incarnation, AKA Matt Smith, Whovians).

Although perhaps our favourite is the very current portrayal of cute cats dressed up as Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.

The genius photographer, Wendy Robbins, who had the idea is a self-confessed 'crazy cat lady' and runs her own portrait studio and creates custom photo props and costumes, so we're pretty sure she knows what she's talking about.

Take a look at more of Wendy's work here.
