Ukraine’s Anime Girl and Real Barbie Meet Face-to-Barely-Human-Face

You know Anastasiya Shpagina (right), Ukraine's Anime Girl, and likewise, you're probably also aware of Valeria Lukyanova (left), who calls herself Real Barbie. (If not, here's a brief primer: They look like this all the time.)

Because this universe is sometimes injust and bad things do happen, the two met up for a photoshoot. The uncanny valley has never been deeper.

First we have newcomer, 19 year-old Anastasiya Shpagina, who’s industrial strength make-up job transforms her into three dimensional warm blooded anime girl.  In the other corner we have 21 year-old Valeria Lukyanova, who surprised the world with her appearance of a “Real Barbie Doll” which is rumored to be the result of extensive plastic surgery.

Though you'd imagine the two were vying for some sort of Creepiest Ukranian Human Alive award, they seemed to hit it off, reportedly sharing makeup tips and dressing up as one another. 

There are plenty more pictures of both ladies(?) over at RocketNews, if you're into that or just can't seem to look away. Link

I work with a Ukrainian American. She told m e that "the Ukraine" was a provincial designation from Tsarist days. But it has stuck in American usage over subsequent generations.
