From Audrey Hepburn to Snow White, Instagram star recreates iconic characters

Plenty of us spent time as a little kid dressing up like our favorite characters, from Belle to Snow White.

And while for many of us, those dreams of being a real-life princess faded, for Instagram star Anneleis van Overbeek, getting older was just the start of making those dreams a reality.

Don't bite the apple! 🍎 I love Snow White 💕 #snowwhite #disneyprincess #disney #snowwhitecosplay #topvintagemodel

The 17-year-old, who goes by the Instagram name "bewitchedquils," uses her account of nearly 24,000 followers to showcase her impressive dress up skills.

"I've always loved experimenting with makeup and hair, but I only became interested in vintage a little over a year ago when I decided to cut my hair really short," van Overbeek wrote in an email to TODAY. "Immediately after the chop people started comparing me to Audrey Hepburn. I knew her name then, but that was it, so I decided to look her up."

She transforms herself into what look like real life versions of Daisy Buchanan from "The Great Gatsby," Scarlett O'Hara from "Gone With The Wind," Audrey Hepburn and more. We wouldn't surprise if someone had to do a double take when looking at some of her photos.

She added, "I instantly fell in love with the elegance and style of old Hollywood glamour and it really inspired me to do these looks!"

I feel a very strong urge to recreate this picture.... 🌼 So, lots of things to do when I get home! Now to have some tea. ☕️

Van Overbeek, who operates an Etsy shop called Anneleis Maria Francine, pays attention to every detail when planning out her looks. She uses vintage clothes, some of which were her grandmother's, along with baubles, wigs and makeup to recreate the character of choice.

But more than just recreating the look, van Overbeek photographs each transformation in a setting that truly encompasses her character, giving her photos an almost life like quality.

It's safe to say this 17-year-old has a skill that takes more than simply using Instagram's Valencia filter to make her photos look as if they were really taken decades or even centuries ago.
