One effect, or benefit if you prefer, of cosmetic surgery is that the possibility of being able to look more like someone else are greatly increased. One strange phenomenon to occur from this possibility is the increase of what is known as “human Barbie dolls”.
Sarah Burge is known as the “Human Barbie” because of all the plastic surgery procedures she has had. She has now attracted more attention by giving her seven-year-old daughter Poppy gift certificates for breast implants and liposuction for us at a later date of her choosing. the British mother is bringing her daughter to the US, at great expense, in the hope of her achieving success in the pageant scene.
This is not an isolated case. the internet is also making it possible for human barbies to get paied to post streaming video of themselves looking very much like a porcelain doll. weird as it may seem looking like a doll seems to be a growing trend. One such girl Venus uploads footage of herself on to the internet and has gained a cult following around the world. Venus is a fifteen year old British schoolgirl who has a free internet TV channel with around 30,000 viewers and a social networking page with 20,000 followers.
Her online tutorials showing how to mimic her look have been watched 10 million times across the globe — including by a host of British schoolgirls desperate to imitate her image. She says: ‘I get lots of messages from young girls. they tell me they love the way I look and they want to be like me.’
In recent months, scores of teenage girls have amassed online followers after posting footage of their doll-like features and instructions on how to perfect the bizarre look.
In reality, looking like Barbie is physically impossible. When a Barbie doll’s dimensions are analysed in proportion it means that a real women would need to be 7ft 6ins (2.28m) tall. That’s just two inches shorter than the world’s tallest woman, Yao Defen. She would also have hips measuring 40ins (101.6cm) and a bust of 37ins (83.9cm).
It will be interesting to see if this trend is more than a passing teenage fad.
