These Cosplayers Found A Way To Include Hijabs In Their Incredible Costumes

There's a growing community of Muslim cosplayers who have inspired each other to find creative and fun ways to incorporate their hijabs into their characters. Mashable reports that a lot of them are finding each other on the Facebook group page "Hijab Cosplay Gallery." One cosplayer who spoke with them, 23-year-old Kira, said she was first inspired when she saw another girl do it.

"Around seven years ago I attended an event and saw a hijab cosplayer...and her costume was modified to that suitable for a Muslim," Kira told Mashable. "At that time it was hard to find [any] hijab cosplayers."

Anyone would be inspired if they saw this:

The costumes are sent into the Facebook page from all around the world. There are some you'll immediately recognize, but like true fans, the girls also cosplay characters that may be obscure to people not obsessed with anime. Even if you don't recognize them, the incredible detail and ingenuity will blow your mind:

Cosplayers already seem like a relatively niche group, so it's dope that girls are meeting and inspiring each other, and frankly, challenging all of us to step up our fashion game.
