Unrealistic portrayal of dolls and its effect on female self-image is a persistent discussion surrounding the toy industry. Dolls were, and in most cases still are, an ideal of proportional body shape and beauty which has been influencing girls around the world from the very young age. This perfectly symmetrical and flawless image has become an aspiration, though it‘s far from realistic. This is why we are thankful for artists who think of the box and contribute to a change by carrying the message of individual and unique beauty.
Ukrainian artist Olga Kamenetskaya specializing in doll modification and repainting, takes what‘s considered ‘perfect’ and gives it a realistic makeover which results in gorgeous, one-of-a-kind creations. What has started as a hobby of repainting dolls from Monster High, has turned into a career which is now admired by almost 60k people on Instagram.
Every popular doll you can think of: Barbie, Blythe, BJD, you name it, turns into extremely realistic, intricate and foremost, unique work of art. All the fine details, such as little features, imperfections, body shapes, realistic wigs add charisma to lifeless, mass-produced dolls and are definitely what makes her work stand out.
It is safe to say that dolls look much better after the ‘natural treatment’ and it goes to show the so-called ‘flaws’ are what actually makes us beautiful.

This one is scarily photorealistic.
This one is somehow closest to the original, which was more natural to begin with.
