This article is based on "Meet the Makeup Artist Who Uses Her Hijab To Morph Into Disney Princesses". If you're interested in reading more, check out the link at the bottom of the article.

Cosplaying is the practice of dressing up as a favourite character from TV, film, book, video game, or other form of media. There's been discussion in the past few years about whether or not it's appropriate for people to cosplay characters that are not the same race, gender, ability, or even hair colour. But what if you're Muslim and you can't show your hair at all?

One makeup artist, Saraswati or QueenofLuna on Instagram, took on this challenge. She took a break from her normal routine of bridal makeup to try on some of her favourite Disney princesses, styling her hijab as hair. Check out the links at the bottom of the article to see more of her cosplaying.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
