    A cosplayer from Malaysia who goes by the handle Miisa_MHC is slowly winning the hearts of many anime fans for using her own take on anime cosplay.

    Some cosplayers may prefer to use wigs — or even go the extra mile to dye their hair — to bring out and make the characters they are portraying come to life. But 21-year-old Misa has a different approach in mind.

    According to SoraNews24, she uses colorful hijab instead of wigs to match the costume or character she’s playing. And by the looks of it, it seems like most of the characters would certainly look good with a hijab.

    This one is just too cute.

    Not just a headpiece, sometimes her hijab can also work as a wig substitute.

    Even the Seventh would be proud of her — BELIEVE IT!

    Not really into Naruto? Perhaps Misa could interest you with her own version of Himawari Uzumaki from “Boruto”.

    She also did her own version of Yamatonokami Yasusada from “Touken Ranbu”.

    Misa began posting her cosplay pictures on Instagram in May 2016. She was once featured in a magazine for her creativeness to put a hijab on many popular anime characters.

    Her gender bender Undertaker cosplay from “Black Butler” is just too much to handle.
