Artist Nickolay Lamm Creates Normal Barbie Shaped Like Actual Woman

Look at this lil caked out Barbie!!!

What would Barbie look like if she were modeled after the average American woman? Artist Nickolay Lamm of MyDeals.com used CDC measurements of an average 19-year-old woman to create a 3-D model, which he photographed next to a standard Barbie doll. Lamm then photoshopped the 3-D model to make it look like a Barbie doll.

“If we criticize skinny models, we should at least be open to the possibility that Barbie may negatively influence young girls as well,” Lamm said in an email to the Huffington Post. “Furthermore, a realistically proportioned Barbie actually looks pretty good.”

Considering how peculiar a Barbie body would look in real life, Lamm concluded: “If there’s even a small chance of Barbie in its present form negatively influencing girls, and if Barbie looks good as an average-sized woman in America, what’s stopping Mattel from making one?”

Interesting…
