There’s a lot of talented makeup artists out there, but this one is special. You probably won’t realise immediately what is it about this particular makeup artist that makes them special. However try to pay attention to the detail. Don’t these Disney princesses look phenomenal? They look so real, yet so magical and perfect at the same time. Aren’t they just a perfect picture of femininity? And the costumes – aren’t those just like what you imagined they would look like in real life? These Disney princesses look like stepped right out of the fairy tale into the real world.

Have you guessed what the secret is yet? If yes, congrats to you. If not, you’re in for quite a surprise. All those Disney Princesses are actually cosplayed by a guy. That’s right, it’s not a female cosplayer — it’s a man with a lot of talent and extraordinary makeup skills.

Richard Schaefer is 21 and he’s been turning himself into Disney Princesses for about 4 years now. It all started while he was still at school. He was bullied a lot and was told that he looks like a girl. Instead of taking offence and trying to prove to the contrary, Richard decided to use his looks to his advantage. He taught himself how to make costumes, he learned how to do makeup and look at him now. In about 2 hours he can become any Disney princess he wants to be.

He’s so good at these transformations that a lot of the time people mistake him for a female cosplayer. That doesn’t bother Richard at all. He considers it a compliment. “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.” – says Richard.
