Japanese Woman Spends $100,000 to Look Like A French Doll
It’s pretty normal for a kid to want to emulate a beloved doll or action figure (Barbie, G.I. Joe, Iron Man, etc.), but what is not normal at all is a grown Japanese woman undergoing countless plastic surgery procedures to look like a “living French doll” – whatever that is. That’s exactly what Japanese model Vanilla Chamu hopes to accomplish though, and she has already gotten more than $100,000 worth of cosmetic surgery in this bizarre quest. Not only is it extremely weird that this woman wants to look like a French doll, but Vanilla looks absolutely nothing like the doll she claims she is modeling her plastic surgery after. What gives, Vanilla?
Vanilla went under the knife for the first time when she was 19, and she apparently got hooked. After spending some $102,000 on extreme plastic surgery, she has since succeeded in becoming an Internet sensation, but her “perfect” living French doll fantasy remains beyond her reach. The most bizarre change Vanilla has made in her appearance involves her eyes, which used to be small and narrow and are now huge and round, with that wide-open glassy look previously reserved for anime characters and human Barbie doll wanna-be’s.
It’s hard to believe that this creepy “Western”-looking woman is Japanese, but Vanilla’s “before” pictures prove that, not only did she once look human, but she was actually a pretty Japanese teenager prior to her 30+ plastic surgery procedures, which included liposuction, breast implants, dimple creation, eyelash implants, double-eyelid surgery and rhinoplasty. As a result, Vanilla is now the proud owner of a new face, a trout pout and a pair of gigantic breasts that make her tiny frame look like it’s about to topple over.
Vanilla isn’t alone in using cosmetic surgery to look like a living doll; she is part of the larger “Lolita” trend in Japan and other countries, where young women go under the knife to appear more like anime characters. Think 27-year-old Ukranian model Valeria Lukyanova. According to Vanilla though, the startling physical transformation she has already undergone isn’t quite enough; she still plans to undergo another breast implant and height lengthening surgery, which sounds way too much like some kind of medieval stretch machine torture, a là The Princess Bride.
Following is a video of Vanilla and her plastic surgery transformation. It’s in Japanese, but you can get the just of it from the graphics and pictures…Like the one showing how the plastic surgeons peeled off her face and scalp in order to insert some bizarro forehead implant?! Um, ouch?
