There are plenty of Disney cosplayers out there, most of whom buy simple costumes from the party store and some of whom spend hundreds of dollars on elaborate outfits. Then there’s this mother and daughter who consistently knock it out of the park.
The two have their own Instagram account, called Disney Inspired Photo, where they’ve posted hundreds of pictures of themselves dressed as Disney princesses and villainesses spanning from Snow White to Frozen.
So how did 7-year-old Layla begin her modeling career in Disney attire? The entire thing started during a trip to Disneyland in 2014 when Layla took part in the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique dress-up process. Once her mother realized how their money magically disappeared after such an expensive process, she wanted to make sure she got some good pictures before it succumbed to the sticky Mickey Mouse ice cream bar.
People loved the impromptu photoshoot so much that her mother decided to do another one — this time with a bit more planning.
What started out as a hobby blossomed into a full-fledged job. 50,000 followers later, the duo have become increasingly popular amongst the Disney community.

We aired in Germany today on @explosiv_rtl ! (We were bumped last week 😜) so happy to share this little hobby/project of ours! It’s such a great way to spend time with my daughter, I never thought it would take off the way it has. Next villain and princess is Mother Gothel/Rapunzel! #ursulacosplay #arielcosplay #thelittlemermaid #thelittlemermaidcosplay #underthesea
Says her mother: “I think our project resonates with parents and anyone who loved Disney movies as children. We are creating some really fun and unique memories together, and although what we are doing isn’t really new, I think we are doing it in a way that is original. We can put our own spin on it.”
