Let's all be honest here: the Disney princes are a pretty attractive group of fellas. Now one dude is taking them off the screen and bringing them to life with his insane cosplay skills. Wait, is this a fairy tale or real life? 

  • His name is Jonathan Stryker, or @strykerkun on Instagram, and his cosplay is so convincing, you'll be doing double takes.

    "I've always loved performing and was totally an attention whore growing up," he said, according to Design Taxi. He's been doing cosplay since 2006 -- and his skills definitely prove it.

  • Stryker recently debuted a "Disney Week," which brought attention to heartthrob princes in a new light.

    "I see a lot of princesses but not many princes," he told BuzzFeed. "I don't know why guys are so scared of the princes and they were, like, our childhood heroes."

     

  • Some looks can take him up to 20 hours to complete.

    He makes everything -- including the costume and props from scratch -- himself, according to an interview with BuzzFeed. He also does his own makeup and wig-styling.

    "Competitively, I'm my biggest rival, always trying to better my own cosplays (which I make entirely myself; or put together) and pushing the envelope in creating showstoppers," he said.

  • He wants to use his platform to promote body positivity, which he said comes from being a "chubby kid while growing up."

    Just about every "sexy" prince came with an empowering caption about why Stryker chose to dress as him. For example, Stryker opened up about how kids would make fun of his "big chin," but Hercules was told he had a "chin of a God."

    "I became very insecure about it for much of my life," he wrote. "Thanks to Hercules, I now see it differently: I have the chin of the Gods!"

  • We hope Stryker continues to give the world their IRL cartoon crushes.
