MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach has been immortalized as a doll by two of her Filipino fans.
On Sunday, December 27, Ian Mendajar, one of Pia’s avid followers, posted an Instagram photo of a doll wearing a blue gown and the Miss Universe crown, similar to Pia’s outfit when she won the title on Sunday, December 20 in Las Vegas.

Ian has previously made 3 dolls of Pia. First, when she won the title of Miss Universe Philippines last March, followed by a doll wearing her national costume during the Binibining Pilipinas competition, and another doll dressed in a gown similar to what Pia wore during the Star Magic Ball last September.
Ian also released a doll of Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon and Miss Globe 2015 Ann Lorraine Colis. (IN PHOTOS: Ann Lorraine Colis wins Miss Globe 2015 pageant)
Meanwhile another fan, Oscar Antonio, also shared his version of Pia dolls. The first doll wore a red gown similar to the Oliver Tolentino gown Pia wore in the preliminaries, while the other doll was dressed in a blue gown and the Miss Universe crown.
Aside from Pia, Oscar also made a replica of Miss Universe 2014 Paulina Vega and 2007 Miss Universe Riyo Mori. He previously made a group of dolls representing the top 3 beauty titles in the world.
Aside from these dolls, Pia was sketched by Disney artist Jimmy Mulligan as a Disney princess last December 23. – Rappler.com
