The retired couple behind Cosplay Parents are great at dressing up as characters from some of your favorite movies. According to a Facebook post, the couple said their daughter, who has been cosplaying for ten years, inspired them to “follow her footsteps into the cosplay world.” 

Wrote the couple on Facebook, “Sweetie it's all your fault! You turned your parents [onto] the fandom and we're having so much fun!” Here's the couple as Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter from Captain America at this year's WonderCon.

Their cosplay journey started two years ago when they decided to dress up for Disneyland’s annual Mickey’s Halloween Party. They went as Carl and Ellie from Disney's Up—creating the costumes themselves by sifting through clothes in their closets or purchasing items at thrift shops. Since then, the couple has been hooked. 

Carl and Ellie would be so proud.

According to Nerdist, the Cosplay Parents apparently tend to recreate outfits of age-appropriate characters. They want to create outfits that “extend” the narrative of the characters by “creating a story [with happy endings] within their cosplay." For example: instead of Ellie leaving Carl for good in Up (Oops), they go on to explore the world together.

Disney really should make a movie of these two, except, you know, leave the depressing scenes out.
