Sarah Ingle may live in Colorado, but her heart clearly resides in Disney. The 25-year-old with the big, natural eyes has spent close to $14,000 to be able to transform herself into Anna, Elsa, Snow White, and Cinderella.

Ingle works as a marketing manager by day, but on the weekends, she uses the beautiful costumes to become something (o someone) entirely new. Check it out below:

Kind of amazing, right? The thing is, Ingle has the look naturally. She has big eyes and luminous skin. All the raw materials are there. And even so, it takes a good three hours of makeup and wigs and colored contacts (in a couple cases) for her to transform. And each time she does, she earns about $100 an hour working at birthday parties. She even volunteers with sick children and basically embodies the fantasy. It's hard to believe she doesn't work at Disney. Truly, she looks better than any of the actors we met when we were there last November.

Quite frankly, I think she looks most beautiful as herself, but there is nothing wrong with playing dress up and spending money to do it. If there is no surgery or crazy alterations involved, then why not? This is just a grown up version of the kid's game.

She makes dreams come true. “I was born with really big eyes, and people were always telling me that I looked like a cartoon doll or Disney princess,” she said. “Nothing makes me happier than seeing the look on children’s faces when they see their favorite princess arrive," Ingle told the New York Post. Her favorite princess is Ariel and she hopes to play her at Disney someday.

I have a feeling that day is coming soon now, thanks to all this publicity. And not one lick of plastic surgery. She's adorable.
