Get Real!

Ever wonder what a Barbie doll would look like if it were life sized?

Galia Slayen, a Hamilton University Student, blew up the measurements and constructed a “human sized” replica to demonstrate just how unrealistic that might be.

The doll stands 6 feet tall, and has an 18” waist, 33” hips and a 39” bust! A little freaky don’t you think?

Slayen, who has battled an eating disorder, created the doll to make a point about what influences negative body issues in young women. While she doesn’t blame Barbie, she does point out how unrealistic expectations of beauty can contribute to insecurities.
