Being a parent comes with it's responsibilities, but who says you can't have a little fun at your children's (and family dog's) expense now and again, as long as it's all appropriate and safe of course. And that's exactly what Lance Curran, a creative dad from Mount Prospect, Illinois has done with his kids.
Using some clever camera angles and some superhero and pop-culture figure themed mugs Curran holds them at just the right place in front his children’s faces and transforms them into cool big-headed heroes.
Simple as that.
Take a look at some of our favorite examples below then head over to Lance's Instagram page and you'll see that he's been doing this for a while and it all seems to take place around breakfast time, even the poor family dog gets drawn into the fun and who wouldn't, the results look adorable and lots of fun.
According to NBC Chicago, "Curran takes the superhero business seriously in his work as well. He is a co-creator of Chicago-based Arcade Brewery, which combines the founders' love for comics with their love for craft beer. The result is a beer bottle that drinkers may not want to throw out. The owners employ comic book artists and writers to help design the beer label and packaging."
And it doesn't end there, if you fancy trying this out for yourself then make sure you let all of us take a look at your results by posting your efforts to Instagram using the hashtag #breakfastmugshot
Se tem uma coisa que a internet ajudou a divulgar foi a ideia de que existem muitos pais legais por aí. E parece que mais um acaba de se juntar à galeria de pais mais divertidos do mundo. Se trata de LanceCurran e de sua série #BreakfastMugshot, em que substitui a cabeça dos filhos por canecas de #SuperHeróis em fotografias inusitadas. Além de #fotógrafo, Lance também coleciona canecas com temas relacionados à #CulturaPop e, desde que começou com a brincadeira, diversas imagens já foram compartilhadas em seu Instagram (segue ele lá @wearecareful) com a hashtag #breakfastmugshot.
