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.

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.

But it was built and hacked together, piece by piece.
