Real Life Anime Girl - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
The world of Japanese anime has just become real. Meet Anastasiya Shpagina. She is a 19 year old Ukrainian girl who transforms herself into a live anime character.
Going by the name “Fukkacumi”, she has become an internet spectacle with her brightly colored hair, perfect white skin and giant doe-like eyes.
Weighing less than ninety pounds and standing only 5 foot 2 inches with a miniature sized waist, Shpagina is literally a walking cartoon character.
Her Facebook fan page has over 10,000 ‘likes’ and one of her YouTube videos, which shows how she creates her dramatic anime eyes through make up, has over 800,000 views.
Reportedly, it takes her over thirty minutes to just apply the make up to her eyes and some say she has expressed interest in plastic surgery to make this process easier.
By blurring the boundary between reality and animation, some call her a living doll and many question her motivation and ask “why?” Anastasiya says, “I am not like a doll, a doll is like me.”
What do you think? Is this trend cute or creepy?
