On NY Daily News I discovered this news about ‘Real life’ proportions Barbie 2.0. Artist Nickolay Lamm created a 3D model of Barbie if she had the proportions of an average 19-year-old woman. As a real woman, Barbie is a bombshell. She has curves in all the right places, arms that could actually lift things and feet that look like they could fit into real, adult-sized shoes. “I wanted to see if an average sized Barbie had market potential.”
With the same bright pink fashions and bleach-blond hair, Barbie 2.0 is just as pretty as Barbie 1.0. Only, she’s shaped like a real girl. “I’m pretty pleased with how the normal model looks and was personally surprised by how well she turned out,” Lamm said.
My opinion: is the neck is or too short, or a bit too thick? A little manly body? And those feet… hahaha… giants.. Do we need a doll with real body? Isn’t Barbie all about illusions and just a ‘doll’? I love the idea of having a real life barbie. It’s time for size diversity in Barbie world as well! LOL
