* During the War on Terror, this has been a legitimate strategy done by various military units to infiltrate terror groups by disguising soldiers as women in burkhas and attacking once they're deep within enemy territory. After a few successful attacks, some of the terror groups have gotten wise to this and have forbidden fully-cloaked people from getting close to their bases; making this strategy harder to do successfully today.

Just how you're supposed to come by one of these is not important. How you find one in your size is even less so. The important thing is that you can hide your face without drawing the kind of attention a mask or hood would bring down on you, and make yourself harder to find than WheresWaldo. Often overlaps with DisguisedInDrag when done by a male character, where it's even more likely to be PlayedForLaughs than usual. MysteriousVeil may or may not include the full hijab but serves much the same purpose.

* In France, the debates around interdiction of wearing burkha in the streets is partly inspired by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La%C3%AFcit%C3%A9 concerns related to the old French secularism principle]], and partly by this trope, to avoid thieves or burglars to hide their identity under this practical disguise.
