    An avatar with a babuska now? In my day, only the old, Slavic ladies of our neighborhood wore babuskas, and they were called Babi!

    Thought it was a hijab. Of course, that's basically the same thing.

    I saw it appeared wrapped about her neck. The traditional Slavic babuska (pronounced as though it was spelled "sh") is nothing more than a triangulate-folded large kerchief.

    Frank this is a real photo of me last year dressed like my mother with my old glasses, no makeup, and a head scarf to hold down my hair on a windy day. My mother always wore a head scarf when outside on the ranch. No religious significance. I wear a scarf on cool windy days to protect my ears and keep my hair from going crazy and looking like an escape mental patient. I love wearing skirts just over the knee. I was posing for a woodworking website with my Grandpas old tools I inherited. I once used them to build a small log cabin all by myself when I lived in the mountains. My only power tool was a chainsaw and my pickup for skidding.

    I don't know anything about hijabs, but my daddy taught me a mean lojab that can stun an attacker. Also nothing about babushkas. I just bought a long scarf at a local ladies clothing store and I sometime tie it in the back as in this photo, sometimes in the front for a dressy formal look.

    @Frank Sanoica @Lulu Moppet After the "look like my mother" old tool photo, I put on makeup, brushed my naturally curly hair to one side, and tied scarf around my neck for a "classy" look for ladies chainsaw carvers group. You can see why some days I should cover my hair. ha ha!

    Who, what? Hoo-day! But "who" implies human identity, and clothing worn has none.......A "Baba" is universally-used by Czechs, Poles, and maybe others to refer, slangily, to an "old lady". A "Babicka" would be an old, wizened one. The "c" is pronounced as a "ch" sound.

    The Hijab is referred to by another word by Iranians, I think it is Purdah.
