Disney’s Encanto truly comes to life thanks to two cosplayers who perfectly encapsulate Mirabel and Isabela’s turbulent relationship.
Encanto’s Mirabel and Isabela Madrigal come to life in an incredibly accurate cosplay photoshoot. Last year, Encanto quickly became one of the biggest animated movies of the past several years, though its impressive box office opening isn’t what cemented its success. Upon its arrival to Disney+, Encanto soon became a sensational hit online as fans became enchanted by the stunning soundtrack and heartwarming story. Encanto follows Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz), who struggles to find her place in the Madrigal family as the only member who did not receive a magical talent. When their home starts to lose its magic, Mirabel does her best to help, even as it puts further strain on her relationship with her family.

Mirabel has a somewhat difficult relationship with most of her family members, most obviously seen in her turbulent encounters with Abuela (María Cecilia Botero) and Isabela. Isabela (played by Diane Guerrero) is always perceived as perfect, which is hurtful for Mirabel who is often seen as anything but. Although, this perfect pedestal that Isabela has been put on quickly becomes a burden for the magical florist as she struggles to maintain this image. Growing up, neither sister had considered the others’ perspectives as they were fixated on their own problems, and that led to their rocky relationship at the beginning of Encanto. Throughout the movie, the two sisters go on a unique journey.
