Many people have a misconception about the hijab. What they might not realize is that there are many women who have made the choice to wear one, and that definitely means they are not restricted in any way and do not need to be saved by Western values.

This also means you are more than welcome to participate in some killer cosplay, hijab included!

1. She Wears a Hijab, and Everybody Loses Their Minds!

Mainly because she looks so awesome and just as devious as the Joker himself!

Being part Syrian myself, I have to ask: "Why so Syria-s?" I know. I'm so punny.

2. Raven Has Got Us Ravenous

This is so adorable. Ryn The Hijab Cosplayer also looks incredibly warm and comfortable, which is never a bad thing.

Who needs a cape when you've got a hijab? Sha Sahrol looks all kinds of powerful here.

A gorgeous hijab that doubles as a blonde wig? Imesuke knows how to kill two birds with one stone. I'm frozen in my tracks because of how stunning she looks.

I half expect to see her black cat Luna poking her head behind her through the green grass.

7. Magnificent Maleficent

You don't want to get on her bad side; she isn't afraid to use those horns if it's necessary.

8. Mighty Minion

She's probably on her way to Villain-Con with Kevin. You have to admit, she's going to be the cutest evildoer there.

Who says women with hijabs can't have fun?

And who says they can't dress up like our favorite characters? You have to admit, you want that Elsa outfit too, don't you?
