Not sure if this has been posted before.... delete if it has ^.^ Didn't see it in the search.

Anastasiya Shpagina is a 19 year-old Bulgarian girl on a quest to make both her face and body look like that of an anime character. Here are a few pictures, an article below, and a link to her facebook page.

Does anyone find this anything other than absolutely freaky? It scares me to think that her facebook page is nearing 30,000 likes. I can't ever imagine encouraging someone to do something so drastic to their body. Also, on a sidenote... if you disregard the face, it's interesting (and really funny in a twisted way) to see what an anime body (the big boob, tiny waist, toothpick legs) that get some guys so riled up over really translates into in reality. It's frightening.

Sidenote: The blonde girl that is seen in many of the pictures with her is known as the "real life Barbie," Valeria Lukyanova.

Good thing they won't let me own sharp things, namely axes.

Freaky, indeed.

It's totally unnecessary to do makeup work to look like cartoon character.

Freaky, in my opinion. There are some things that look good on paper, but not in real life...

Firstly I think this girl doesn't have a grasp on what anime truly is. The big eyes, the small nose, the large boobs, sharp angular chins are characteristics of the art form and most of the time these features aren't even meant to represent a physical ideal. For instance the "large eyes" are usually found on innocent "pure hearted" characters. The physically convey they person's openness and trustworthiness. In contrast narrow eyed characters are usually less trustworthy, or more distant in character and nature. Same goes for angular chins. A more round oval face is more inviting, the sharp angles in the face can elude to a harsh personality. Even in the cases where the features are there for the purpose of portraying a physical ideal (such as large breast or large hips) they are almost always done as an extreme exaggeration. Anime in and of itself is about the exaggeration, the off the wall story lines, the fantastical characters and their features; these elements are what make anime so unique and so entertaining. Anime does many things, it conveys morals, human relationships, humor, horror, and explores the many facets of being human. What it does NOT do however is try to stick to reality and expectations of the "real world."

That being said I'm going to be very blunt in my next statement. I find her absolutely hideous. I find her desire to look like an anime character bizarre. Imagine someone going up to a Dali and saying to themselves, "I want to look like that." It's the same level of bizarre. Your taking an abstract image that is not human and slicing and dicing your body till it fits a mold it was never intended to in the first place. Coloring your hair, putting on eye makeup, cosplaying, that's one thing but to permanently alter your body in such a way is horrible and sad. I love cosplay but I don't do it because I find whatever character I choose to be a physical ideal but rather I cosplay because I want to celebrate that character and that anime.

Most pictures of her are creepy, but the bottom right one is kind of pretty pretty...except for her being freakishly skinny. Nothing against skinny people, but she is to the point of unhealthy (supposedly 85lbs). Medical recommendations would say to be at least low 100s at her age and height.

I wish people would stop being focused on looks and focus on being healthy.
