Valeria Lukyanova, in this writer's humble opinion, is one seriously scary individual. I may lose some credibility amongst my fiercely heterosexual friends, but the Ukrainian model gives me the creeps. Maybe its her giant, glassy eyes, or, perhaps, her impossibly tiny waist. Whatever the case may be, looking at her pictures gives me a serious case of the willies. If David Cronenberg or David Lynch ever want to make a motion picture about misplaced ambition and/or humanity's obsession with constructing the so-called "perfect body", she should be the frontrunner for the lead role. I feel like I'm looking at stills for the next installment of the Tekken franchise.
Seriously, folks. I'm frightened.
Then again, what do I know? According to The Inquisitr, Lukyanova claims to be "the most famous Russian woman on the Russian-language Internet." She's amassed quite an online following -- her YouTube channel sports nearly two million views -- though it's taken a bit of work for the 21 year-old to transform herself into a living Barbie doll. Again, am I the only straight guy on the planet who thinks this is just plain wrong?
In order to achieve the look you see in the slideshow embedded above, Lukyanova has undergone a series of surgeries, including procedures to enhance her breasts, trim her waist, and sculpt her face. She also spends quite a bit of time applying make-up to achieve that thoroughly plastic complexion. But don't take my word for it -- have a look at the bizarre cartoon below, a clip which eerily showcases all of the steps Lukyanova has taken to transform herself into a mock human being you see today. You can thank the folks over at Jezebel for pointing me in the direction of the video.
If you doubt the girl's authenticity, you can gawk at pics of her without make-up on her official Facebook page.
As far as Twitter reactions go, this one has been particularly interesting. Most people seem to think that all of these images have been Photoshopped, while others seem to believe she's nothing more than a freak looking for a bit of attention. Whatever the case may be, Valeria Lukyanova has already achieved one her dreams.
Lots of people on the Internet are talking about her, for better or for worse.
