Every kid wishes they could meet their favorite Disney character — that’s why Disneyland is such a magical place. But having the ability to BECOME your favorite character? That’s next level, and that’s exactly what Nephi Garcia does for his three children.

He used to be a high-end fashion designer, and those skills have certainly paid off — now, he makes a living selling pint-sized costumes for children and making their dreams come true. The first Disney costume he ever made was a Fairy Godmother custom for his daughter. When she wore the costume to Disneyland, it was a huge hit with strangers and cast members alike. “Everybody was complimenting her and everybody was asking, ‘Oh my god, does she have an Instagram account?’” Garcia said in a recent interview. She didn’t, so he created one for himself to see what he could do, and it’s really taken off.

He sells the garments online at his shop, and children’s orders start at $500, while adult orders start at $1,000 for cocktail-length and $1,800 for gowns. His work looks beautiful and intricate, and he gets everything perfect  right down to the smallest detail.

His wife also gets in on the fun, here is the pair as Belle and the Beast:

Can you imagine how much fun it would’ve been to grow up with a closet full of Disney costumes? You would’ve won Halloween every year, hands down.
