/ Teletubbies

As Covid-19 looms over various nations threatening all the crisis responses and medical frontlines, it is no surprise that hospitals are running low on protective equipment like hazmat suits and surgical masks. To solve this particular problem, Adrian Pe, a Filipino nurse took this matter to his own hands by making colourful homemade protective suits.

The full-time nurse noticed that the hospitals in his country are running out of protective equipment, therefore, he decided to sew sets of protective suits for the medical staff at The Medical City Iloilo. To make his sewing experience fun, Adrian made these protective suits to imitate fictional characters like Teletubbies, Darth Vader as well as Power Rangers.

On his Instagram account (@senoritoaidz) where he uses to share all the beautiful gowns and dresses that he designed for brides, Adrian shared the process of making these special hazmat suits. The photo below showed Teletubbies-themed hazmat suits worn by a team of frontliners.

Understanding that working in the hospital is exhausting and draining, he had learned to focus on the beauty of the profession and be grateful for the experiences and people.

Adrian wrote:

“I work a lot in the hospital and the work there is exhausting. And I have always taught myself to look for the beauty in it; to look in the beauty in the faces of the patients and to be grateful. And I will bring this aspect as a Nurse Designer, to see situations with a SILVER LINING.”

In his following post, he shared a group of photos showing his colleagues helping him to measure and cut the fabric needed for the hazmat suits during their break time. Some of them even helped him to sew these suits up! How sweet!

He had also made a set of protective suits that matched the colours of the Power Ranger’s gears, probably making many people’s dreams come true.

Other than the cute and amusing sets of Teletubbies and Power Rangers suits, Adrian made another set of suits that imitated Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers! He did not forget to share the movie poster to let people observe the similarities, and we totally salute him for it.

We’re beyond amused to see how Adrian made these protective suits as contributions and brought so much joy to many different people along the way.
