TikTokers are loving the "Stop Motion" trend.

Plenty of TikTokers have hopped on board with this trend with family members, friends, and romantic partners as well.

One user by the name of @HallieRiordan compared her facial features to her boyfriend's … and they look shockingly similar. Both angles she chose to pose in with her boyfriend reveal striking similarities. They’ve got similar jawlines, lips, eye color, and nose shapes.

Another user named @Meenakshious set up the trend with her mother, adding the caption, “Okay THIS one is scary." Once again, the similarities are striking. Obviously, she and her mother have different hair styles and colors framing their faces, but when it comes to their actual facial features, they are most certainly a mother-daughter duo.
