Today, I have a serious case of the needing Fridays. The weekend was much too short, the mountain of work for this week much to high, and my motivation much to low. However, this adorable story is bringing some much needed magic to my morning.
Based in California, Nephi Garcia is a fashion designer and Disney Dad rolled into one. He designs amazing, one of a kind costumes for his children and wife to Disney cosplay with. Nephi calls himself Designer Daddy, but I think “Disney Dad of the Year!” might be more appropriate.
Here, his daughter Lili poses as Cinderella while her friends, the birds, finish her stunning pink dress for the ball. The way that Nephi has created this gown makes it look as if it’s in a perpetual state of motion. I mean, the birds are actually hovering here!
Here is Lili posed on The Little Mermaid, listening to the ocean while soaking up some sun. Can you believe that this is probably the most simple design from this Designer Daddy?
I love this version of Regina Mills, aka The Evil Queen from Once Upon on Time. Everything from the costume, hair, and accessories is perfect in this cosplay! Not to mention the pose from this fabulous fashionista!
Son Eddy gets in on the fun with this spot-on Mad Hatter costume. The attention to detail is just amazing.
Nephi’s wife, Bethanie, is one lucky Princess! Here she poses as Ariel in this ridiculously beautiful gown. I bet she never has to complain about having nothing to wear out!
Is that Princess Anna just waltzing down the street in this Instagram shot?! Nope, just Bethanie channeling her inner Arendale Princess in this incredible accurate Anna cosplay. Look at those boots!
And here is the man himself…kind of. Nephi and Bethanie are the perfect Beauty and the Beast cosplay. Seriously, this Dad is so talented!
Garcia also designs original dresses, which you can order on his website. Because of his incredible designs and immense popularity, his entire website is currently sold out. However, there is a statement that he is “currently working on a mass-produced Designer Daddy line to accommodate all budgets.” Yes!!!
What do you think of this Designer Daddy’s gowns and cosplay? Let me know what your favorite design is in the comments!
Monica is an Alumna of the Disney College Program. When she is not walking down the middle of Main Street USA you can find her wandering the World Showcase, or enjoying a Dole Whip while racing to her favorite attractions. When she is forced to endure life outside of Walt Disney World, you can find her in Ann Arbor, Michigan where she lives and works. You can visit her Disney lifestyle blog HERE.
