This Guy Recreates Celebrity Outfits on a Low Budget and the End Results Are Incredible
Ah, celebrities. They're just like us - except for the fact they have seemingly unlimited budgets for their clothes and accessories. Dressing like a star is an expensive business. But one Instagram star decided to take matters into his own hands. Romanian artist Bogdan recreates iconic celebrity outfits on a supremely tight budget - and his creations are absolutely amazing. Using household items like sponges, toilet paper, and the contents of his fridge, you'll be blown away (and highly amused) by what this talented guy comes up with.
100. Billie Eilish
We personally wish he’d gone for the glittery cheekbones, too.
99. Ariana Grande
Real fur! Ok, it’s still alive, but that’s more humane, right?
98. Cardi B
All four of these looks are incredible.
Great use of avocados – though we think he could have tried a bit harder with his bikini.
96. Tekashi 6ix9ine
Who knew you could achieve such an extreme look using only candy and some sharpies?
Not gonna lie, we’d totally wear that fork earring.
94. Christiana Ronaldo
We’d be very nervous about rolling around with all those eggs.
93. James Charles
Not all of us have his skill with a makeup brush, so why not fake it til you make it?

Using twigs instead of hair is some serious shade.
90. Anne Hathaway
No exotic parrot? Any old fowl will work.

You’ve gotta hand it to Bogdan, he knows how to work a vegetable.
This looks great – though we can’t imagine it smells too fantastic for the wearer.
87. J Balvin
This look was universally panned at the VMAs this year – but we actually kind of like Bogdan’s affordable take.
86. Kylie Jenner
Smooth, buildable coverage with a flattering dewy finish – maybe we’ve been overlooking Nutella this whole time?
What an innovative way to replicate those iconic denim boots.
84. Zac Efron

Who knew a trash bag and two old wigs could be so glamorous?
This cutlery look is surprisingly high fashion.
70. Justin Bieber
Those fake tattoos are particularly hilarious.
69. Ariana Grande

The very definition of “use what you’ve got.”

The cocktail stick hair is simply inspired.

The use of captioning is particularly hilarious.
51. Captain America
He’s wearing jeans as a top – this is not a drill, he’s wearing jeans as a top.

The coins alone are impressive, but when you notice the feather boa his attention to detail is clear.
28. Ariana Grande
We think he could have made a little more effort with the lipstick.
27. Lady Gaga
A golden globe or a can of drink – same difference.

Not quite sure why he had to substitute watermelon for pizza here …
You can’t fault his dedication – and his bred budget must be huge!
