1. Human Barbie and her quest to look like a living doll.
Valeria Lukyanova, also known as the Human Barbie, was everywhere this year, thanks to her fascinatingly impossible proportions. According to Lukyanova, she maintains her waistline by eating nothing but “light” and “air,” which is incredibly unhealthy unless you are a plant.
2. Human Barbie’s No. 2.
As odd as having one Human Barbie is, it turns out there’s a second woman after the crown. Alina Kovalevskaya doesn’t just share a common goal with the O.G. Human Barbie, she also shares a hometown: Odessa, Ukraine. So if you’re keeping score at home, that’s two women who both want to look like Barbie and both live in the same place. They apparently used to be friends, but Kovaleskaya said the relationship “soured.”
3. Human Ken
You’d think Justin Jedlica, who had over 140 procedures to transform himself into a human Ken doll, would have a lot in common with Human Barbie. But he thinks she’s fake because she uses makeup and shortcuts to achieve the effect.
4. This woman who got a third breast implanted
Jasmine Tridevil had the Internet going insane after she announced she got a third boob and also wanted a reality show. Only half of that wound up being true, after it was revealed the third boob was a prosthetic and no doctor anywhere would implant a third breast onto anyone. At least Tridevil got her 15 minutes of fame.
5. Victoria Wild, the human s*x doll.
Wild aspires to look literally like a s*x doll. “I would always dream about resembling a sexy bimbo doll with huge breasts and insanely big lips. I loved the way dolls looked and how sexy they were. They are so bright and bold. It was this fantasy in my head,” she says. Interesting.
6. Tatiana Williams
Williams had a series of black market procedures to get the ass she has today, an incredibly risky venture.”I don’t recommend people copy what I did — but I’m a risk taker and it has been a success,” she says. “I have no regrets about being the beautiful woman I am.”
7. This woman who wanted to look like her own caricature.
When Krystina Butel saw a caricature an artist did of her, she was immediately jealous. “She was so glamorous. She was everything that I wanted to be,” says Butel. She now has 36K-sized breasts, along with tattooed heart-shaped nipples.
10. The women who got so much surgery in South Korea, they couldn’t get through airport security to go home.
Plastic surgery has become such a huge business in South Korea that women in nearby China started visiting to get procedures done. Some of them got work so extensive, though, that they wound up looking much different than their passport pictures. It made it incredibly difficult for them to fly back home.
11. This woman who wanted to look like Jessica Rabbit.
Penny Brown got surgery to take her breasts to a 36O so she could look more like famously voluptuous cartoon character Jessica Rabbit. Brown was obsessed with the character since childhood and uses a corset to make her waist thinner, similar to the proportions of her cartoon idol.
12. Jordan Parke’s transformation into Kim Kardashian.
Jordan Parke, a 23-year-old British makeup artist, says Kim Kardashian is “the most gorgeous woman ever. Her skin is perfect, her hair, everything about her.” He’s spent a lot of money (including eyebrow tattoos and lip injections) to look more like the star. He’s not fazed by haters. “Do they think I’m going for the natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back,” he says.
