Hijabs are being incorporated into fashion and cosplay in inventive ways. We’ve seen Alyssa Salazar add her hijabs to her Japanese Lolita fashion ensembles, and now, we’re seeing how the Perlis, Malayasia based cosplayer known as Miisa MHC uses her hijabs to transform herself into characters from Japanese anime. She’s come up with unique costumes inspired by from Sailor Moon, Naruto, and so much more.
Miisa’s work, which we learned about thanks to RocketNews24, is eye-catching and and bold. For example, she manipulates the hijab just so to emulate Sailor Moon’s iconic hair buns in this cosplay:
For this Naruko Uzumaki look from Naruto Shippuden, Miisa modified a yellow hijab and added a headband.
One of my favorite stylings is this killer Kurohime-inspired look. Miisa came up with an original character with a goth look and added some wicked bat ears to her hijab. These kind of alterations show off the hijab’s versatility and how it can absolutely be incorporated to enhance cosplay.
And for something a little different, Miisa’s dipped her toes into the Adventure Time water with this sparkly purple Lumpy Space Princess costume.
