In the past, Barbie has been criticised for her unrealisitic body proportions and the negative effects she could be having on young girls. So what if Barbie underwent another makeover, only to be remade as 'normal' Barbie?
Artist Nickolay Lamm of MyDeals has created an image of what Barbie would look like as the average woman.
Using CDC measurements of an average 19-year-old woman, Lamm made a 3D model, which he photographed next to a standard Barbie doll. Using photoshop, Lamm edited the model to look like a Barbie.
The end result? "A realistically proportioned Barbie actually looks pretty good," said Lamm.
If you consider how strange Barbie's body might look in real life, and how great Barbie would look based on a real figured women, Lamm doesn't see what's stopping Mattel from making one.
What do you think of 'normal' barbie? Would you like to see her on the shelves?
