Everyone loves dressing up for Halloween, but there are some people who dress up like someone else every day of their lives. They get so used to it that it becomes who they are, up to the point where it’s unclear if they are still “dressing up” – or rather just doing their normal routine. Yulia Kriger, a Russian Instagram sensation with over 12 million followers, was dubbed by media outlets as a “real life Barbie,” and fans across the world can see why.
When she was a child, peers at her school told her that she looked just like their favorite plastic doll, “Barbie.” Yulia wasn’t surprised they felt this way, but it still felt pretty weird for her to hear it. After all, the whole point of a Barbie doll is that they are supposed to be the embodiment of perfection. What did that say about her?
She wasn’t sure how to react, but she knew that her symmetrical facial features, her brilliant blue eyes, and her silvery blonde hair must have something to do with people being in awe of her. Years later, she made the conscious decision to go all out with this comparison, and decided to make herself look even more like Barbie by doing a number of different things.
At the end of the day, we have to follow our gut when we make decisions in life. Very recently, people have questioned Yulia on social media, commenting about the various choices she’s made. But Yulia holds firmly in her beliefs, and as you’ll soon see, she’s not afraid to give these people a piece of her mind.
How many of you have ever had a dream? Many some of you dreamt as kids that you wanted to be a fireman when you grew up. Maybe some of you wanted to be policemen. These dreams are pretty realistic on some level – but there are some dreams that are less so. For instance, what if you wanted to be a Barbie doll? This was the dream of Yulia Kriger from Novosibirsk, Russia, and even though it didn’t seem likely, she seems to have beaten all the odds.
