Kids With Down Syndrome Pose as Their Favorite Disney Characters, and They Look Even Cuter Than the Originals

UK-based photographer, Nicole Louise Perkins, currently works in a special needs secondary school, so she knows all about the inner beauty of kids who have Down syndrome. To show this beauty to other people as well, she created a special project, Down With Disney, where these kids pose as their favorite Disney characters. Nicole put all her heart and soul into every shoot she took, and she really hopes that this little effort will give some positivity to all the families with special kids and raise awareness in others.

We at Bright Side absolutely agree with Perkins that each and every child involved in this project looks just fabulous, and we’d like to share these 17 incredible photos with you.
