Designer Nephi Garcia Creates Incredible Disney Ball Gowns From Scratch

Designer Nephi Garcia Creates Incredible Disney Ball Gowns From Scratch

Ever wanted to dress like a real life Disney princess? Well, one fashion designer is selling his bespoke creations and they're a literal dream.

Crafting stunning ballgowns from scratch inspired by Disney classics, Nephi Garcia is the king of the corset, puffed skirt, crystals and beads.

And the dresses are another league from fancy dress costumes - some fans have even claimed they're better than the Disney ensembles they've seen in the movies!

While you can contact Nephi to make you your own custom gown, it's worth noting that at quality like this it won't be cheap.


He has a couple of pre-made Disney outfits retailing on his site for $79.99 (£60.81), but if you want him to do your own design, you'll have to get a quote.

But if you're looking for something truly special then we can't think of many gowns that'll top these!


Nephi - who goes by @designerdaddy_ on Instagram and TikTok - says he specialises in making 'Disney-inspired couture', whether that's "one of a kind wedding dresses" or "cosplay costumes".

On his website, Nephi tells how he realised his dreams of becoming a designer when his family were on their "last leg" and struggling to make ends meet.

"One day I took my family to Disneyland and my daughter wanted a princess dress.


"I knew I could not afford it so I promised her I would make her a special dress of her very own.

"When I got to work my wife challenged me to make something special, something more than a simple dress.


"What we created was magical a dress that could transform from an ordinary dress to a beautiful princess gown."

Just a scroll through Nephi's socials and you will see how magical his designs really are.

A stunning yellow dress that looks like it's been taken straight out of Belle from Beauty And The Beast's wardrobe is the first item you'll clap eyes on.

There's a custom Snow White gown (which is the stuff of dreams) and an absolutely stunning Mulan costume.

But our personal fave has to be the emerald green wedding dress with embellished segments.

Just imagine walking down the aisle in that.

For those who can't afford to shell out on a custom piece, or want to learn how to duplicate the robes themselves, the designer also sells dress making tutorials online for wannabe tailors to learn from.

He teaches everything from simple corset making and ball gown skirt making to a tutorial on how to make a Cinderella dress or an Elsa gown from scratch.

Plus, each tutorial is only $45 (£34) and available to download digitally so you can keep it forever.

On that note, we're off to open a Disney dress shop.
