Anatomification of Barbie

I didn’t have a Barbie myself (I was a Sindy girl – it’s a British thing. Barbie is American and Sindy had slightly less outrageous proportions and is Bristish). However, it seems there’s a wave of working out the anatomy of Barbie, possibly because a normal person would need to have 6 ribs removed to look like her, but ultimately because she’s meant to be beautiful…. and we all know beauty is beneath the skin right?

The amazing Jason Freeny (of course) does it again. Source

Yup, there’s an ‘Altered barbie‘ website, of course! ….and the video is their show

Lastly, I love this Day of the Dead Barbie, but can’t find who did it – anyone know?

    I had both a Sindy and a Barbie… and did a bit of altering myself, though nothing this witty or sophisticated. I punished Sindy for being jealous of Barbie by cutting all her hair off. Psychotherapists would have a field day with that information :-S
