Makeup artist uses her hijab to transform into Disney princesses
The artist, known by the name of Saraswati, believes the hijab is not a barrier when it comes to dressing like a Disney princess
A Malaysian makeup artist has mastered the art of using hijab, the traditional Muslim headwear, to make Disney characters.
The artist, known by the name of Saraswati, believes the hijab is not a barrier when it comes to dressing like a Disney princess. On the contrary it is the most critical part of her look. Saraswati is herself a Disney fan and goes by Queen of Luna on Instagram. She makes them look so authentic, they’ll make you do a double take.
In her Instagram posts – of her “Alice in Wonderland” look – Saraswati said that as a child she used to dress up as Alice almost every day. Her headwear has served as an Elsa braid, a Belle updo and even a landing pad for Ariel’s fork. She’s also done Jafar and The Red Queen.
