Whoever said princess dresses were a ~girl’s thing~ need to stop what they’re doing and meet 21-year-old Richard Schaefer.
Yep, that’s right, Richard as in boy.
From a young age Richard- like all of us- discovered the ⋆~mAgiC~⋆ of Disney Princesses and instantly fell in love.
"I decided to start cosplaying as princesses because of how androgynous people used to say I was,” Richard told Daily Mail.
Yep, this King didn’t let the fact that he was a guy stop him from living out his days in a tiara: "Curiosity got the best of me, so I decided to transform myself into my favourite princess — Ariel, who I have loved since I was a child. I was pleasantly surprised at how convincing I looked so I decided to stick at it and try different princesses too."
Here he is #SLAYING as Belle:
Then there was that time he was the most beautiful Sleeping Beauty in the entire kingdom:
Snow White? Cinderella? #NoProblemo.
Over time Richard has managed to obtain over 40 costumes (which most are made from scratch) , owns 30 wig and has even mastered profesh makeup techniques. His ~transformation~ from Richard into certified Princess takes roughly about 2 hours.
Since embracing his love for Disney, Richard has discovered a new-found confidence: "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."
He legit is the belle of the ball.
