This guy has transformed himself into loads of Disney Princesses and it’s the greatest thing ever

We love Disney as much as the next guy. But maybe not this next guy. As he LITERALLY transforms himself into them.


That’s right – meet Richard Schaefer, a make-up artist with a passion for all things Disney, cosplay and an absolutely out of this WORLD talent for make-up. We adore him already.

Richard spends around two hours on each of his transformations, and makes lots of the costumes himself – he found it to be a huge confidence builder after being bullied in school, and loved it ever since.

If this isn’t bloody inspiring, we don’t know what is. We adore him EVEN MORE!

Wanna take a look at some of his work? Course you do! Here we GO:

Snow White

The rosy cheeks, rosy lips, outfit… THIS IS LITERALLY SNOW WHITE.


Ariel is Richard’s fave Disney princess, so it ain’t no surprise that he’s pretty much perfected the look. Can we look like this pleeeease?


It's hard to explain. Lizards and pumpkins and things! ✨✨✨

The dress is almost as impressive as the make-up. IT’S UNCANNY!


Tales as old as time, song as old as rhyme… IT’S BELLE YO’.

Anna and Elsa

To perfect one is a crazy talent. To perfect both is damn crazy talent. We can’t take our eyes off these!


What is it like out there where they glow? ✨✨✨✨✨✨

Anyone else feeling a little tangled?


This cosplay thing is just a whole new world.


(OK not a princess but LOOK AT THOSE CHEEKBONES.)

You’d never have guessed Richard could transform into a Disney Princess quite so well as he does – but OMG. It’s one of the greatest things since Toy Story 3.
