Real-Life Version of a Prince Eric From The Little Mermaid
Disney princesses have had their moments (and plenty of ’em), but what about the guys? Los Angeles actor Leo Camacho is tapping in to the magic and charm, delighting his Instagram followers with his portrayals of Disney princes, villains, and modern-day characters. He’s done Aladdin, Jack Sparrow, pilot Poe Dameron from the latest Star Wars installment, and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast. The baddies definitely aren’t exempt from his treatment—his Captain Hook is on point from Once Upon A Time.
He works hard at putting his looks together too. Those nailed-it costumes? He works on them himself. “I’m not a very talented seamstress. I see how much of it I can build from elements that I can buy on Amazon or find at a thrift store,” he’s said.
His all-time best has to be Prince Eric from the Little Mermaid though, a role he immortalized with a mermaid-themed wedding shoot (because, you know, there’s an audience for that). It’s his favorite to dress as too, and he’s gotten some major props. “People really freak out when they see me in that costume,” he has said in an interview, adding that he met the movie’s director when he was in full regalia. “[He] walked up to me and said, “You look exactly like him. Wow!”
