Remember playing dress-up back when you were a kid? Fun times.

But while playtime was usually all fun and games for many of us, a Canadian mother-daughter pair has upped the ante when it comes to dressing up.

In their case - dressing up as well-known princesses from classic Disney movies.

Camillia Courts and her 7-year-old daughter, Layla, have been sharing pictures of how they play dress-up and it's safe to say the Internet has been eating it all up.

One Instagram user (@fairytales4everafters) commented: "Can't wait to do this with my little girl."

It all started with a 2014 trip to Disneyland's Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, where little girls are transformed into mini versions of a Disney princess of their choice with help from make-up artists on hand - plus a whole lot of hairspray and glitter.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Courts said she had bought a dress for her daughter at the boutique and "wanted to get a photo" of her in it to share on Facebook.

After the photo went viral amongst family and friends, the two became a formidable duo and took the game more seriously.

They now have almost 27,000 followers on their official Instagram account, on which they have shared close to 200 stunning pictures of little Layla in various costumes - such as Belle from Beauty and the Beast and even Princess Leia from the Star Wars films.

According to their Instagram profile, they feature a new princess in their photo shoots every month.

Courts, who is a photographer by profession, added that Layla has "gained a lot of confidence" since the two started working together.

"She's a very shy child and I see her light up when she gets into costume," Courts told HuffPost.

Courts has also posed for the camera and even dressed up as the villain Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" in one of their many themed shoots. Layla was, of course, dressed as Ariel - siren red wig and all.

It's truly a matter of teamwork for the duo as they are both involved when it comes to costume and brainstorming ideas, said HuffPost.

However, Courts is willing to let her daughter have her way if she grows out of it all someday .

She said: "Even if she wanted to quit tomorrow, I will look back on how much fun we had playing dress-up."
