There are enough creepy creatures in life, and as if National Geographic hasn’t published them all, you can now add human Barbies to the list. Yes, these are people who actually went under the knife to look like exact replicas of Barbie dolls. I mean, sure I was one of those children in the store that would hit the ground and throw massive tantrums for my mum because I wanted a Barbie. It just never reached the extent where I wanted to look like one; all I wanted was to play with their hair.
Human Barbie and Ukranian model Valeria Lukyanova is actually being considered for an acting role in an upcoming movie about Barbie. Is the Barbie meant to be a symbol of how the perfect human should look like? I guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, and I find beauty in imperfection.
Here are some pictures of the real-life human Barbie’s. I looked at so many of them I was actually disturbed by the images…so viewer discretion is advised.
