That’s right, you can look twice. In fact, you HAVE to look twice, because the cosplay transformations of the American cosplayer and fashion student Richard Arthur are on a whole new level.

His androgynous looks allow him to perfectly impersonate Disney princesses, most notably Ariel of The Little Mermaid, hence the artist name.

But his transformation talents don’t stop there. He also does an impeccable job of impersonating a whole batch of other Disney characters, such as Snow White, Jane from Tarzan, and Sleeping Beauty, among many others. We’ve also seen him do the occasional superhero, with a perfect Wonder Woman cosplay, for example.

Cosplay is not only something he really enjoys, it’s a way of expression, a way to be himself. Or as he put it himself, in an interview with The Daily Mail:

“Not only do I feel beautiful as a princess but I feel even more beautiful when I’m just myself, the ball gown is just an added bonus.”

We are proud to welcome this cosplay pro at FACTS Spring 2018!
