7-year-old Layla may be a shy kid but not when she's wearing a Disney costume. Playing dress-up has helped Layla "come out of her shell" and gain confidence.

It all began 2 years ago, when Camillia Courts, a photographer, took her daughter to Disneyland’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and got her a dress. Their first photo came out so great that they have been cosplaying ever since.

The mom-daughter duo now has more than 19,000 Instagram followers, and sew the dresses themselves or hire local seamstress. While Layla loves to dress as Disney princesses, her mother prefers the villains. Their favorite photoshoot was "The Little Mermaid" where Layla was Arial and Camillia turned herself into Ursula.

Besides cosplaying as Disney characters, the 7-year-old has also dressed as Princess Leia and BB-8 from the "Star Wars". She also cosplayed as Rowena Ravenclaw from Harry Potter and Violet from "The Incredibles."

Oh, I'm so happy to see Anna represented. She is the real strength of the 'Frozen".

She's not floating on water, she's on the sand under the water, I love the little crab on her tail too!

Beautiful, but out of character for Leia. I prefer the close-up in her rebel robes!

I saw everyone that was here to view and this little girls is being made famous by her beautiful Mother. And when this little girl grows up I hope she will have many photos dressed up to show her book to the world of how she was loved and had a happy child hood. Her Novel will be a very good story to read.
