Ophelia Vanity, a thirty-year-old from Los Angeles, spent her teens dressing as a goth wearing black clothing and heavy make-up.
But as she grew older, she wanted a drastic change and felt more drawn to the Barbie look.
“I’ve always been into Barbie,” she said. “As a kid, I’d get a doll every Christmas or birthday. I had a dozen or so and would play with them all the time.”
That’s normal, but what’s a little less normal is spending more than $35,000 to transform into a “real life Barbie,” as Ophelia has done.
In 2009, she had her first Botox injections in a bid to make her face expressionless, like a doll, and impressed with the results, shestarted having lip fillers, to achieve Barbie’s trademark pillow pout.
She now gets either Botox or lip fillers every six to nine months, and that’s just the beginning.
She has also undergone non-surgical rhinoplasty, which sees surgeons transform the shape of the nose using filler injections, and completed her look by swapping her long black locks for a new bleached blonde hair, just like her doll idol.
To complete her look, Ophelia can spend up to three hours a day painstakingly applying makeup, using clever tricks to alter the shape of her face.
Though her eyes are naturally large, she wears contact lenses to enhance them, boosting the size of her iris from 13.5cm to 16.2cm.
“I don’t go full Barbie every day,” she said. “If I’m just popping to the shops, I won’t wear any makeup. ”
But she does wear a 22-inch waist corset to give her Barbie’s iconic hourglass figure.
