Nephi Garcia is a father of three who creates incredible Disney costumes for his children. Previously a couture fashion designer, the "Designer Daddy," has now turned his attention to cosplay.

"We take 'Dress Up' to the next level," Garcia writes on his Facebook page. "It's a serious business in my house, trust me." 

The talented dad has also amassed over 70 thousand followers on Instagram where he showcases his creations.

Garcia told Buzzfeed that the costumes take around four to six hours to make. And, he crafts adult versions too -  these outfits taking 12-48 hours to complete.

Garica uses organic silk and materials shipped from Europe for his magical designs. Consequently, they're not cheap. Kids' outfits cost around $600 with adult versions beginning at $1,800.

The costumes are intricate, unique and incredibly accurate.

A few impressive designs for Star Wars fans:

And just look at Cinderella's incredible veil and (adorably grumpy Prince Charming).

Garcia also designs what he calls "transformation" outfits. One of the most popular is Belle from Beauty and the Beast, her famous blue and white dress opening to reveal a golden ball gown.

Garcia has big dreams, too. "I hope that someday I can make costumes for Broadway shows or live-action movies," he said."But I will never give up making pieces for people who are not in the industry — I like to give them quality outfits that they can't get anywhere else."

Of his new passion, he tells Insider: "It sounds ridiculous because they're costumes. But it's something that we love doing together and something that brings us together."
