The world of animation has always been an ample source of costume inspiration. 

But not everyone needs to borrow a wig or throw on makeup to resemble a Pixar character or Nickelodeon cartoon. Some people already look like they came straight out of a Disney storybook.

From Prince Eric and Moana to Captain America and Velma from "Scooby-Doo," you'll be seeing double in these photographs.

Jacobson, who lives in New York City, told Insider that he "definitely relates" to Milo's sense of style

Many people on the thread had Disney doppelgängers, including Alabama native Breyanna — who shared a photo of herself alongside Moana.
