As a kid, I was pretty obsessed with Disney movies. So, it should come as no surprise I spent most of my childhood parading around the house in a variety of "Cinderella" and "Sleeping Beauty" costumes.
Unfortunately, my parents forced me to trade in my whimsical wardrobe once I started elementary school.
However, Sarah Ingle, a 25-year-old from Denver, Colorado, hasn't let adulthood deter her from living out her fairytale fashion dreams.
That's right. Ingle still dresses up like Disney princesses on the reg, and so far, she actually spent over $14,000 on all sorts of one-of-a-kind princess costumes.
Yes, you read that correctly -- $14,000! Apparently, Ingle has many different ensembles and wigs allowing her to achieve the perfect princess appearances for the Disney characters.
Ingle's magical transformations take about three hours, and thanks to her wide eyes and intricate costumes, it's not hard to see this gal makes one seriously convincing Disney character.
Take a look at the pictures below to see this real-life Disney princess.
