These stunning photographs capture how a mum transforms herself into her favourite Disney characters – using only make-up.
Lucy Cook, 25, uses her face as a canvas to replicate characters from The Lion King, Toy Story, 101 Dalmatians, Snow White and other films.
The stay-at-home mum paints the mask-like make up in astonishing detail, and posts them online, where fans can't believe it's her real face.
Each look takes Lucy between two and four hours to design and then paint, done with the use of movie stills.
"The first thing to know about me is that I'm a huge Disney fan.
"My all-time favourite film is The Lion King, though Moana really has my heart too," Lucy told Devon Live .
Lucy, from Poole, Dorset, has amassed an army of fans on social media.
"My love for Disney is what first started me getting into my cartoon-style looks, and made me fall in love with turning myself into my favourite characters," she added.
"I started painting faces, just small bits and bobs, when I was quite young. I started focusing on it and building my skills properly just before I fell pregnant in 2014.
"Then I began taking photos and uploading them to my Facebook page in October 2016, not really thinking anything would come of it.
"I started taking Instagram seriously in May. Before then, I would post ever now and then, but May is when I took the plunge and really went for it.
"My followers tend to love all the characters and other style looks I create, but the cartoon style characters definitely tend to be a favourite."

The Disney nut has painted Disney icons Woody and Bo Peep, Jessie, and Forky.
She has painted the faces of Lion King protagonists Timon, Simba, and Rafiki – as well as the villainous Scar – with luminous colours and clever strokes.
Soon she'll start her eerie Halloween collection to mark her favourite time of the year.
Lucy said: "Currently I'm working on setting up my YouTube channel, which is really exciting.
"I have a lot of series planned for my Instagram too – soon I'll be doing my 31 days of Halloween, which I'm so excited for because Halloween's my favourite time of year.
"I just love creating my looks, especially my cartoon transformations. I love bending people's minds when they try to work out where my face is.
"My friends and family are always extremely supportive of my work. I have the most wonderful followers, who support and encourage me so much."
The artist has also metamorphosed into Snow White and the Hag from the 1937 classic, as well as Cinderella and her wicked stepmother, and Ariel and Ursula from the The Little Mermaid.
"More than anything, painting really relaxes me. I enjoy it so much, and the fact that other people love it too just means the world to me.
"My girls are my inspiration, and I want them to know if you work hard enough at a skill or talent you have, you really can make something of yourself," the mum added.
