Typically, we admire the looks of Filipina actresses by liking photos of it or expressing how much we like it. But Alvin Ocampo has a more creative way of showing his appreciation. He replicates the looks of famous Filipina celebrities by making a Barbie version of the outfit. From intricately detailed bridal gowns to icnoic red carpet looks, Alvin pins down miniature versions of the ensembles.

He’s even replicated the looks of the main female characters in Encantadia, complete with head pieces and swords! It’s no wonder that he’s earned roughly 6,500 followers on Instagram thanks to his amazing skills. But more than fun, his past time also has a lot of hard work involved. One of his Instagram posts shows the process of how he ombre’s a specific Barbie dress to replicate Michael Cinco’s designer and haute couture gowns. Alvin personally sews all the dresses made and exudes a lot of time and effort in it. Check out some of the looks he has achieved.
