If only becoming a real princess could be this easy.

Cosplayer Richard Schaefer creates real-life fairy tales by transforming himself into Disney characters, both male and female. He documents his creations on his Instagram account, The Official Ariel.

To become the beloved characters, which range from "Frozen" character Elsa to Peter Pan and everyone in between, the 21-year-old California native uses wigs, costumes and copiously applied makeup.
