What’s It Like To Be… Barbie?

What’s it like to look like a doll? Have you ever wondered what it would feel like if people start telling you that you look like Barbie? I guess 99.99% of the world’s female population will never know what it feels like to be a doll. And the less than 0.01% that looks like Barbie are the only ones who can tell what it feels like to be one.

What about you… what do you think of a girl or a woman who looks a lot like a doll rather than a real live person? Would you think that she is pretty or freaky? Do you see her as human or as a replica of Barbie? Some people may think that looking like a doll is just perfect, are you one of them?


Girls who were born with doll-like facial features are undeniably pretty to look at. They are just so cute!!! The downside of this is that when these girls grow older, their doll-like appearance diminishes. Besides that, not every girl is endowed with this asset. Some girls, and even some women have resorted to numerous plastic surgeries and made some drastic changes in their body and their overall appearance. The fact that they are willing to undergo to so much pain for an external beauty is quite unusual. They are also risking themselves and their good health for these risky procedures and it’s all for the sake of replicating Barbie.


Some women have gone out of their way to change their appearance tremendously just to look like Barbie. They go through to so many plastic and cosmetic surgeries in the hopes of looking like Barbie. Those who haven’t really undergone plastic surgeries may have to spend so much time doing their makeup to be just like Barbie. In fact, they may have spend about half of their day doing their makeup and preparing their outfit just to look like Barbie for the rest of the day. It’s too much work and can be hard to maintain if you’ll ask me, but some girls are able to do it almost everyday. Amazing and unbelievable?! You may think that they have nothing else to do with their time except to doll themselves up. To most of us, doing something like that everyday is not just too much hard work but it is also impossible to maintain for most days.


Sure, some of them are making a living with their appearance but is it a lucrative business? Some of these Barbies have their own YouTube channels and some of them play as cosplay models. Is it just their way to make a living or does vanity play an important part into their choices in life?


Barbie

Meet Barbie, the original doll that many girls are replicating. For many people, she has the perfect features of a girl or a woman but the fact still remains that she is made of plastic. She's not a human being and hence her perfection remains untarnished.

"Girls or women who were born with doll-like facial features are undeniably pretty to look at." Sure, doll-like features may be pretty by the book definition but may or may not attract attention.

It all depends on the mindset and mind conditioning of the one who's looking at them. It certainly is vanity to waste time and money to keep "looking good," but it's all relative.

A movie star needs to keep "looking good" in order to keep signing contracts for movie and modelling assignments as "looking good" is a pre-requisite for a continuity in her career.

Strangely enough, where this issue is concerned this is about the only instance when the first impression need not necessarily be on the very first occasion.

Well, in a lighter vein, when a guy meets a woman who is fully made up and is "looking good," and if he happens to be thinking a few steps ahead, he would almost certainly ask her the question "can you swim?" ... Got it? Lol!

Another interesting and unique topic! Cheers!

Hi Quicksand, glad you've found this interesting. :) For while here, I'm losing hope. I couldn't get this hub to be featured. :'( I've done everything and still idle.

Anyway, why would a guy ask a girl if she could swim? Especially if she is all made up? Wouldn't that ruin her looks? I'm sure a guy wouldn't want that... errr, I could be wrong, though.

You have to admit that the pictures of the girls I chose are cute. What guy wouldn't like them? Please don't ask them to swim. It would ruin their Barbie look. :P

I have a better idea, Quicksand, just ask them to pose. :D

Hi again BeatsMe! Well, what I meant was, if a man is thinking several steps ahead, he would like to see what the woman would look like without make up. Inviting her for a dip in the pool is one civilized way of accomplishing that!

So, that's the way it is! Good wishes to you, and keep on writing!

lol. And ruin their looks. Anyway, strangely enough, every time I see a pretty girl up close, they almost always have the perfect look, even without makeup. Or, it could very well be just my impression.

Thanks so much for coming by and good wishes to you too. :)
