After Mattel presented a new set of Barbie dolls in different body shapes and skin tones, a Nigerian medical student took things a step further by creating a hijab-wearing Barbie.
"I was mulling about the idea for about three months while I was still studying for my master's degree in the U.K.," Haneefah Adam told Mic. "When I got back to Nigeria, I went to the mall, purchased a doll, dressed it up, documented it and here we are."
Since posting photos of hijab-wearing Barbie to Instagram (the handle is @Hijarbie), Adam has received over 25,000 followers. The 24-year-old said the project's having a positive impact on young girls, especially young Muslim girls.
"I thought it was really important for a doll to be dressed like how I would be," she told CNN. "I think this is a great platform to try and get the Muslim identity to the world and correct some misconceptions."
Here are 15 photos that give Barbie dolls an important cultural twist.
