Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova is trying to obtain the figure a "real-life" Barbie doll so she can become a human demi-god and to achieve this goal she has decided to not eat food so she can a waist the size of a Barbie doll. Valeria Lukyanova considers herself an educator and is trying to encourage people to move from being a human consumer to a human demigod.
Valeria Lukyanova has stated that she has used plastic surgery to change her body and uses make up and contact lenses over her naturally green eyes to help her achieve the Barbie appearance. Valeria Lukyanova makes no secret that she considers herself an educator and considers her appearance as a way to attract attention so that she can promote her 'spiritual' ideas.
Valeria Lukyanova has been able to take her extreme approach to changing her shape into the image of the Barbie doll and earned media attention in large part due to the incredible shock and disbelief associated with her approach. Her willingness to state that she is a spiritual guru and that her spiritual name is not Valeria but actually Amatue makes people question her approach and also actually spend time listening to her because her views are so radical that many wonder if her approach is an extreme approach to attract media attention or is this something she actually believes in.
Valeria Lukyanova's spiritual beliefs and her subsisting on an entirely liquid vegetarian diet to help her obtain the waist size of a barbie doll have made her a media carnival act and ironically that has provided her the forum she has desired to act as the spiritual guru she believe she is. The only question is whether people will continue to listen to someone who looks like a Barbie doll that they used to play with as kids but then as they grew older, left behind in the toybox because toys are for ... children.
