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.

When you're working with kids, you never know what you're going to be dealing with on a daily basis. Are you going to have the delicate sweethearts, opening their hearts to learn?

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
