Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Our beloved Gritty now has an adorable miniature.
This little Flyers fan is taking his fandom very seriously with a custom furry orange ensemble that his mother shared Monday on Twitter.
Connor, a 4-month-old from Montgomery County, might just be the cutest thing we've seen since Gritty himself.
His mom, Valerie Sherk, created the costume in just about three hours using a small hoodie and an unbelievable amount of yarn, she told NBC Philadelphia.

The costume even comes complete with a pair of little baby skates, though we aren't entirely sure Connor would be much better at skating than Gritty.

Either way, we give this costume a 10/10.
