Little boy dressed up as Michael B. Jordan's 'Black Panther' character is too cute
Black Panther, one of the biggest blockbusters in history, stars Michael B. Jordan as the bad guy you couldn’t help but cheer for (at least a little bit). So, for celebrity look-alike day at school, parents Kiona Sherman and Leé Jeffersondressed up their adorable 8-year-old son as Jordan’s Black Panthercharacter, Erik Killmonger. All hail the little king!
Third grader Jahcir rocked the character’s look: A jean jacket, white T-shirt, black pants and sneakers, and similar necklaces. His hair is styled the same, with a faux beard (possibly thanks to a bit of mascara) and round glasses.
Jefferson tells Yahoo Lifestyle the look was put together in less than 30 minutes.
“It was almost effortless. He had already been growing his hair for over a year now, and it was the perfect length to re-create the hairstyle,” says Jefferson. “We were so inspired by the Black Panther movie that we had to do mini Killmonger.”
