While we grew up with different goals in life, one woman in particular still dreams of becoming a Disney Princess. All the Disney princesses have charmed us into their stories at one point in our lives, but this woman kept her childhood dreams up to now.
A 25-year-old Marketing Manager from Denver, Colorado named Sarah Ingle spent $14,000 to transform herself into the famous Disney princesses.
She can dress-up as Belle, Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Elsa and Anna from ‘Frozen’, and Merida from ‘Brave’. She already owns 17 different outfits and 16 different wigs to complete her transformations.
According to Sarah, “It takes a lot of time to get into the outfits because they have lots of layers that tie up at the back, then I have a different wig and makeup look for each princess.
I have to contour my face when I play Aurora from Sleeping Beauty because my face is much rounder than hers. And as I have hazel eyes, I have to wear blue contact lenses for the Little Mermaid and Elsa from Frozen.”
It is a good thing she has big pretty eyes which helps in her transformations, “I was born with really big eyes, and people were always telling me that I looked like a cartoon doll or Disney princess. I suppose that my big eyes just help me to appear more cartoon-like, which is great for what I do.”
Her dresses were specially made for her, she said, “Each dress can take up to six months to make, and I source many different materials from all over the world, including silk and organza before drawing my final designs. I’m very fortunate to have a full-time job that pays for the beautiful dresses and material because I’m so passionate about looking the best that I can for the performances.”
She treats her $14,000 as an investment since she and her boyfriend had started a business called “Princess Ever After” wherein she can be hired to play their favorite Disney Princess. She charges for around $145 for parties and events.
It’s a good thing she has the looks to pull it off. It’s amazing to see that she’s pursuing her dreams and her business was a good platform for her to express her inner Disney princess. Way to go Sarah!
