Garcia, 32, is a California-based fashion designer, husband, and father-of-three, who has recently been getting a ton of attention for his incredibly intricate Disney costumes, especially the ones he makes for his children.

We’re pretty sure Nephi Garcia is the dad of every young Disney-obsessed fan’s dream.

This talented dad is next level #DadGoals and he’s giving us all the feels just in time for Father’s Day.

(FYI: Father’s Day is Sunday and if you still haven’t figured out a gift for the big guy, make use of our large, and hopefully fail-proof, Father’s Day gift guide.)

Garcia, 32, is a California-based fashion designer, husband, and father-of-three, who has recently been getting a ton of attention for his incredibly intricate Disney costumes, especially the ones he makes for his children.

And as soon as you get a look at some of his work, it’s easy to see why.

Pure magic.

So this is love #Cinderella and Princecharming #designerdaddy

In a recent interview with Buzzfeed, Garcia explained that while he used to work in high fashion, once he had kids, the industry “wasn’t really working” for him anymore. However, he soon found renewed inspiration when his daughter, Lilli, now aged six, asked him to make her a costume for a family trip to Disney World in 2015.

The Fairy Godmother costume that he created for Lilli was so flawless that by the next day he’d gotten almost a dozen orders from parents who’d seen his handiwork at the park.

Garcia puts in a ton of work to make these gorgeous costumes, and it definitely shows.

He told Buzzfeed that each children’s outfit takes anywhere from four to six hours work; while the adult versions (sample below) of these costumes can take a jaw-dropping 12 to 48.

Of course, they don’t come cheap.

But Garcia assures he only uses the highest quality materials for his costumes, and never uses the same design twice. His children’s costumes start at $600, and his adult looks begin at $1,800.

To be honest, it looks like his costumes are worth every penny.

After all, Disney magic is priceless.
