Incredibly talented Saraswati, going by the moniker Queen of Luna on Instagram, is a Disney-inspired makeup artist who can transform herself to any cartoon character. She has taken it upon herself to “educate” people and break stereotypes about Muslim women being oppressed.
“According to some of my fans, they were surprised when they find out I'm Muslim and say I'm breaking the stereotype that Muslim women are oppressed. Although I'm not the only hijabi who does this kind of makeup/cosplay,” she told Zahara.com, which specializes in “halal” cosmetics for Muslim women.

I remember reading the tale of The Little Mermaid as a child. The end left me frustrated, as the protagonist Ariel turns into bubbles and the antagonist gets married to Prince Eric. I wondered, why would anyone write such a story? Whatta heck! 😭💔😂… #ariel #princessariel #thelittlemermaid #littlemermaid #ursula #ursulacosplay #vanessa #seawitch #disneyprincess #disneyvillain #disneyvillains #disneyprincesses #disneycosplay #disneymakeup #cosplaymakeup
