Real Life Anime People

Recently read this article on plugged, on people who use extreme makeup/contact lenses/plastic surgery to make them look like(or similar to) anime characters on a daily basis..(similar to the whole elf ears thing)

"The 19-year-old girl pictured for instance, is Anastasiya Shpagina, a Ukrainian girl who has hundreds of thousands of followers on YouTube and Facebook. Looking like someone right out of the anime world that inspires her, the 5-foot-2 woman reshapes herself with enormous eyes, flawless skin, a teeny-tiny waist, a coquettish pose, a defined butterfly-lipped pout and very brightly colored hairstyle. She's even taken on the moniker of Fukkacumi, a name straight out of a Japanese comic. Click here to see Anastasiya demonstrate how she makes up her eyes—a painstaking process complete with oversized contact lenses and huge eyelashes that can take somewhere north of 30 minutes per eye to accomplish. Britain's Daily Mail reported that the young girl is even considering constructive surgery on her eyes."


This is why people are scared of anime fans.

But seriously.....the elf ears were at least subtle. I can see someone doing something like this at SDCC or Halloween, but every day? And surgery too....eeesh.

I mean, live and let live...I guess...As long as it doesn't catch on. This is how I imagine the Pretties surgery from Uglies to end up like.

Like, I love anime just as much as the next person...but this seems a little over the top  IS SCARY.

From a different point of view, the only really dramatic change is really really really really big fake eyelashes and the circle lenses that make the irises look bigger. People already wear super big eyelashes...and in the last picture they are sort of a creepy way. I think it's the makeup/surgery that makes her skin look so...plasticky.. AND HER WAIST TOO JUST LOOK AT IT.

I just don't think this is helping to break the crazy anime fangirl stereotype......I love anime(am listening to Hetalia's "Absolutely Invincible British Gentleman" as I write this) but I seriously hope I(and everybody else) don't end up this way. XD



  1. Oh wow. Scary on so many levels.

    She'll regret doing that when she is 70.....

  2. 0_0 Wow. Yes, I really hope you don't end up like that either!

    Oh. Dear. Force. She looks like a live doll! That's uh-er... c-creepy. So creepy.
    Most of my friends are anime fans, but they're never this extreme.

  9. This is really interesting. My only concerns would be any health risks, but if this makes somebody sincerely happy, then who are we to judge?

  10. This is really fascinating to me. I'm not judging. They only concern would be any potential health risks
