Barbie and Ken are classic childhood toys. Girls and boys play with and collect the dolls, falling under their spell. Some become so obsessed with Barbie and Ken that they spend their teenage and adult lives morphing into them. It may seem wild, but some people have devoted their lives to becoming real-life Barbie and Ken dolls. What does that entail? Everything from spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery, following strict diets and exercise programs, and layering on makeup to make them look like the dolls. And you might be surprised to find out that the dream of becoming a real-life doll isn’t so unusual at all.
Alina Kovalevskaya and Valeria Lukyanova have both been dubbed human Barbie dolls. The two of them have denied having any plastic surgery, though both of their bodies say otherwise. They’ve admitted to getting breast implants, but their doll-like features are almost too good to be true. There’s also Lolita Richi who stepped into the spotlight at the young age of 16. Her elfin features and doll-like proportions make her look eerily similar to Barbie. She too has rejected plastic surgery rumors, and credits her Barbie-like looks to her contact lenses.
Others are more open about their transformation into real-life Barbie dolls. Nanette Hammond has spent $500,000 on cosmetic procedures to look like her idol, including lip fillers, Botox, eyelash extensions, and daily trips to her at-home tanning salon. And Blondie Bennett spent $38,000 on her 30JJ breast implants and still wants to go bigger. Rodrigo Alves has spent ten years and $400,000 transforming himself into a human Ken doll. He’s had 42 operations including fillers in his arms, pectoral and abdominal implants, and liposuction on his legs. Justin Jeldica is another human Ken doll who has claimed he wants to be 100% plastic. He spent $170,000 on plastic surgery procedures from a four-piece back enhancement, to five rhinoplasties, and even removing the veins in his forehead.

Rather than letting it break her down, she decided to start doing her makeup like Barbie and turn into a real-life version of the doll instead.
