Kids love playing dress up, but the experience becomes even more special when their parents are the ones creating the clothes. Luckily for Nephi Garcia's kids, their dad is more than happy to spend hours creating elaborate costumes modeled after their favorite Disney characters.
Garcia has been a fashion designer for the past nine years, but primarily focused on high fashion designs until his daughter, Lilli, made a special request: The Garcias had planned a trip to Disney World and Lilli wanted a costume for the occasion fit for a princess — or at least a fairy godmother.
So, he used some scrap fabrics to make her a dress identical to Cinderella's Fairy Godmother and Lilli wore it to the park.
Garcia's elaborate designs soon caught the attention of other parents who wanted them for their own kids. He left the high fashion industry and started making costumes for both kids and adults. He sells his made-to-order designs at his online shop Designer Daddy.
The custom costumes for children cost upwards of $500 while the adult costumes start at $1,000. According to his website, a mass-produced line to "accommodate all budgets" is in the works. We can't wait to see it!
