Nephi Garcia, also known as Designer Daddy, is a dad who makes high-quality Disney costumes for his kids. A video on the INSIDER people Facebook page has garnered over 11 million views since it was posted on Wednesday afternoon.

“I didn’t realize cosplay was my thing until just recently. But I know my wife and kids love it as well,” Garcia said in the video.

Garcia was a couture fashion designer before he decided to focus his ability on making costumes with his family, according to the INSIDER people video.

A blog called “Inspired Family of 5” mentioned that Garcia’s costumes made their family’s Disneyland trip “an incredible experience.”

“Our good friends from Designer Daddy brought extra costumes for our girls to join in on dressing up,” wrote Jen, the writer of the blog. “When my daughter slipped on that first gorgeous Victorian-style dress and glided down Main St. like a princess, holding hands with her best friend, the magic of Disneyland jumped to a whole new level.”

According to Garcia’s Facebook page, he and his family currently reside in Orange, California. On his Designer Daddy page, he wrote that “dress-up” is serious business in their house.

“It sounds ridiculous because they’re costumes, but it’s something that we love doing together, and something that brings us together,” Garcia said.
