Real Human Doll Body Art

The art of beauty comes in different forms and creatures.  As time goes by, we humans  have been obsessed to mimic what many are ideal and beautiful.  When we were young, our toys have not only become our companions and allies, for most of us, these toys have become our ideas, our alter ego, our obsession.  As we grow old, many of us would pattern ourselves into these stiff plastic and rubber images and make our images almost identical like them.

Superman

Probably, the most adored marvel comic character of all times.  Millions of people around the world have imagined themselves as Clark Kent and becoming Superman.  The comic series have even invented a gender counterpart to go with the clamor of the opposite sex - Superwoman.  But, in this world where male dominance is a culture, it overshadowed the role and Superman evolve on a greater scale regardless of gender and sex.  With different mediums in technology, people have achieved this level.  Among these mediums was the science of plastic and cosmetic surgery.  With plastic  and cosmetic surgery along with the aid of commercialism, the transformations has become a reality.  The obsession that many people have identified themselves ever since they were young have become close to perfection and reality.

Barbie


If you asked any little girl around the world, who their very dear and best friend is. You will probably get 'Barbie'  as an overwhelming answer.  No matter what race, color or culture, Mattel, the maker of Barbie have dominated every market in all corners of the  world.  Many girls and even transgenders have sealed their hearts and loos for a barbie-look a like. Barbie, to many girls and women was the epitome of a perfect beauty.  And many would love and die just to have that doll like looks from head to toe.  Any counterpart is a real misfit.  Barbie rules the ideal beauty of the female gender.


Human Dolls

When doll manufacturers made their products, they took patterns from the ideal looks of certain human like concepts and engrave them into plastic and rubber molds.  The reason perhaps was to make their products to look more human like despite their lifeless nature.  But, it seems many humans have taken the path of the opposite enslaving themselves to become more like their lifeless counterparts.
