This is Taylor Swift: Singer, sometimes actress, Kimye nemesis.

You may think that you're familiar with every single thing about Taylor, but you'd be wrong. It turns out T. Swift has a secret goth queen twin in the Midwest.

And guys, I am not even exaggerating. This is some parallel universe shit; the resemblance is EERIE.

This is April Gloria, an incredible cosplayer, artist, and makeup fan.

You can follow her on Instagram, and also check out her Patreon.

April just so happens to look *EXACTLY* like Taylor Swift.

They look so much alike, it's unreal.

This is some punk rock doppleganger shit right here.

And her makeup skills are unreal.

If you told me that this was a Photoshopped picture of Tay-Tay, I would 100% believe you.

Have I blown your mind yet? This is Taylor...

... this is April.



... April.

The resemblance is so strong, I don't know what to believe any more. Is this really Taylor onstage? Or is it April? HOW WILL WE EVER KNOW?

*throws self into the abyss*

Suddenly I realize Edgy Taylor was really just trying to serve us Regular-Strength April.

Sorry, girl. Bow down to the Queen.

But it's not just T. Swift that April manages to look *exactly* like — as a cosplay artist, she channels a lot of different characters.

She also manages to look exactly like Daphne from "Scooby Doo."

And Cinderella...

... and basically *every* character from Skyrim.

April handmade every single one of these costumes, except for the Serana outfit (bottom left) — she often does live "Cosplay and Chill" streams on Twitch, where she works on a costume element and talks to her fans.

And before you ask, yes, April is WELL aware that she looks a disturbing amount like Taylor — and is in on the joke.

She was once booked on Harry Connick Jr's show in a segment about getting celebrity looks for less. "Poor mans Taylor swift wearing the poor mans version of her outfit and makeup LOL," she wrote.

In 2016, she even did a "MERRY SWIFTMAS" photo shoot.

"trololololololol #noitsbecky," she added.

While we don't know if April is Swift's long-lost twin, doppleganger, or double from a parallel dimension, one thing's for sure — Swift can't blend like our girl.

Follow April on Instagram and Twitch, and check out her Patreon for like a million and one ways to freak right out over how great she is.
