Iloilo-based designers, in particular, have gone viral on social media lately for keeping medical frontliners' spirits up by sewing colorful hazmats and creatively themed PPE suits inspired by pop culture—think Money Heist, Power Rangers, and Star Wars!

More recently, Adrian, along with the other nurses came up with Power Rangers-themed hazmats as well.  “My goal is for each member of the healthcare team to feel confident rather than scared when they step inside the battlefield each day,” Adrian explains on his IG post. “The Pink Ranger once said, ‘We can't change the past but we can work for a better future.’ I hope these hazmat suits empower everyone, nurses and patients alike. It's morphin' time!”
