Barbie Gets Real: Artist Creates Barbie Doll With a ‘Realistic’ Body

Realistic Barbie

A lot of teens these days have unrealistic perceptions of the ideal body, no thanks to the stick-thin models walking down runways and gracing magazine covers.

Every Barbie doll that leaves the manufacturing line looks perfectly made-up with bright lipstick and dark eyeliner accentuating her pretty doll features. Artist Eddi Aguirre, however, had different ideas. He stripped Barbie off her makeup and came up with the image that you see above. You can check out a close-up of Barbie sans the heavy makeup after the break.
