Apparently, Disney princesses cosplay is a thing out there. There are a lot of people doing it but none of them come close to this 22-year-old guy.

Seriously, if somebody didn't tell me this was a guy dressing up as Cinderella I totally wouldn't have guessed it. His makeup job and hair is absolutely flawless.

This Orange County, California, design student has worked as a Jungle Cruise skipper at Disneyland before and perhaps that's where he got his inspiration for his Disney princess cosplay.
