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.
Schaefer's Instagram features pictures of himself at Disneyland and comic conventions, where he dresses up and effortlessly plays the roles of the characters.
Schaefer, who now has over 100,000 followers on Instagram, began posting in 2013 and has amassed a following of loyal fans.
