When six year-old Ainsley Turner of Apex, North Carolina showed up for the princess-themed event at the Holly Springs Dance School as a hot dog, she became a hero to many people who admired that kind of confidence and ingenuity, including her dance teacher who first put the “hot dog princess” on Twitter.

Since that day, the photo of the lone hot dog amongst a tiny sea of princesses has gone viral, much to the surprise and pride of Ainsley’s father Brandon.
One fan even made an adorable LEGO version of the picture.
