Here’s a conspiracy to fuel your Thursday — there are two Taylor Swifts in the world. We are very much aware of the saying that everyone in the world has a doppelgänger, but this woman looks so much like T. Swift it’s eerie. Meet April Gloria, a cosplayer from Kansas who may or may not be a clone of the blonde pop sensation. (We want some scientific proof before we say that this is merely a coincidence.)

Gloria’s expertise about costumes and makeup should explain how she pulls off a perfect Taylor Swift. But the photos below show Gloria out of costume. Prepare to be amazed.

Is this 911? We’d like to report possible identity theft.

The hair, the signature red lip and cat-eye liner combo, and even Gloria’s facial features have an uncanny resemblance to Swift’s. What is this MADNESS?

One theory we have is that April Gloria is in fact Taylor Swift. Via Instagram, the singer is pulling a huge prank on the world by making us think that she has an unrelated twin sister. Clever, Swift. Very clever.

Or perhaps this is proof that aliens exist. Perhaps one alien, upon touchdown to Earth, made the egregious error of taking the form of world-famous Taylor Swift rather than the form of a nobody off the street!

Our minds are spinning trying to figure how, when, why, where.

And clearly, we are not alone.

Just like the answer to the age-old question, “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?” the world may never know the truth about this doppelgänger mystery. Kudos to April Gloria for not only throwing Instagram into a tailspin, but also for being blessed with the beauty of Taylor Swift.
