This AMAZING Disney Princess Proves Everything Is Possible!

This stunning Disney princess that looks like she has walked out of a Disney movie, is actually a 21-year-old guy called Richard from California.

Richard Schaefer is a freelance makeup artist and regularly transforms himself into an array of beautiful Disney princess, from Snow White to Cinderella.

He uses his amazing make-up brushes and contouring skills to gain the perfect complexion.

Richard started cos-playing as Disney princes and princesses four years ago and says people are stunning when they discover the picture-perfect princess is in fact a man.

‘I think it’s a real compliment when people think that I’m a female cosplayer because it means that my transformations must be convincing,’ he says.

Each time he transforms, it takes him two hours to get ready and he has to make his costumes.

"People think I'm odd. I know how it feels to be different, and I know how lonely that can be" ✨☺️✨

On the process he says ''Chest padding is also necessary to become any princess, I try to make as many costumes as I can at home, using materials that I find online. But when I’m too busy to make costumes, I cheat and buy them online instead.’

Richard regularly posts his transformations on Instagram and says that becoming a princess has helped his confidence after he lost heaps of weight ‘Not only do I feel beautiful as a person but I feel even more beautiful when I’m just myself, the ball gown is just an added bonus.’

I was saved by a flying man in a loincloth! 💛🙊🌿
