Going to often surgical extremes to imitate a fictional, impossibly proportioned character might seem like an incredibly unusual thing to do, but surprisingly, there are enough women willing to alter themselves to look like Barbie to create an entire list.

Below are some people whose lives have been shaped by Barbie and the desire to achieve a doll-like appearance, but do you think life in plastic really looks fantastic?

Nanette Hammond

Age: 42

Amount Spent On Surgery: $500,000


"I loved playing with those Barbies. Growing up, I felt shy and self-conscious about my looks and wanted to be just like the dolls. I imagined they’d always be happy and I felt drab in comparison. I didn’t like my hair color and as a teen, I really wanted bigger breasts.”

Angelica Kenova

Age: 27

Amount Spent On Surgery: None


"When I turned six, my mum started buying me collectible Barbie dolls and enthusiastically dressing me up like one. My mother loved Barbie’s slender beauty, golden curls, cute face and beautiful clothes. My mother inspired me and urged me to be exactly the same. I would pose in the mirror for hours and put on performances for my parents’ friends. Everyone nicknamed me the ‘Russian Barbie.'"

"People often come up to me and say, 'don't take this the wrong way, but you look like a cartoon' - but for me that's a compliment, that's what I want to achieve.

Those cartoon characters represent the idealization of the female body. I want to achieve that ideal."

Amount Spent On Surgery: The only surgery Lukyanova admits to having is a breast augmentation which costs around


"Look, to me the Barbie doll looks perfect; it was created as a human idol. When I adopted her image, it felt very positive, at first—I constantly heard compliments from everybody around me. But then I got a lot of insulting comments questioning my intellect. That was painful and bad for my reputation, since I’m a spiritual teacher for many people."
