Anime characters are shown with big eyes and heads that are inappropriately large compared to the body. With inspiration from cartoons, Shpagina also tried to achieve that look and she has succeeded to a great extent. This is a real life anime girl, Anastasiya Shpagina. She pulls some serious make-up sorcery (NOT photoshoppery) to appear just like an anime character. A 19 year old Ukranian teenager Anastasiya Shpagina has literally transformed herself into a living cartoon character, complete with miniature waist, coloured hair, and a defined pout.With her enormous, glassy eyes, purple hair and coquettish pose, this girl could have stepped from the scene of a Japanese anime film.She has even adopted a Japanese name- Fukkacumi.
1. Anastasiya Shpagina: Real BUT Unreal:
Shpagina from Ukraine is becoming known worldwide as the Human Anime Girl. She looks as if she literally walked out of a Japanese anime film.
2. How Does She Do It?
She has a huge following on Facebook and Youtube where she shares makeup and hair tips, BUT can you tell. . . Photoshop also is used to greatly enhance her pics?
3. Body Size & Weight:
Shpagina is 5'2" tall and weighs 85 pounds, which suggests she may be dangerously thin and possibly unhealthy. She claims to be purposely thin to appear more authentically like an anime character.
4. Anastasiya Shpagina And Her Mother:
A photo with her mom reveals what Shpagina may look like without anime makeup. Wow, doesn't her mom appear young enough to be her sister?
5. Which Anime Character? Sailor Moon?
Many say Shpagina reminds them of the anime character Sailor Moon. Is it because Moon is the most immediately recognizable and iconic of all anime characters?
6. Which Anime Character? 'Me'!
Perhaps Shpagina is creating her own "character" and her own branding? Her Youtube 'Tutorial Flower Fairy' video has garnered 6,448,677 hits to date. . . and that's just one of her vids! On her European Facebook page she wrote: "I'm not like a doll, a doll is like me."
7. The 'Human Doll' Trend:
Another Ukrainian, Valeria Lukyanova is well known for transforming herself into a real-life Barbie using plastic surgery. Together these gals are two peas in a pod yet not unique, apparently there's a "human doll" phenomena happening around the world.
8. Anime Makeup:
Shpagina spends an hour on her eye makeup, which includes eyeliner, shadow, and false eyelashes. Those huge eye irises are likely due to eye-enlarging circle lenses.
9. The Ongoing 'Body' Project:
It's been reported that Shpagina's not yet satisfied with her figure. To get more of a desired anime look, she wants to undergo surgery to reshape her eyes and nip in her waist even further.
10.The Breathing Doll: Eerie Or Clever?
At the end of the day, who are we to judge people's unconventional beauty obsessions? With the established business of anime marketing and huge fan base, what we could have in Shpagina is a savvy entrepreneur.

"Behold: the real-life anime girl. Anastasiya Shpagina, a 19-year-old Ukrainian woman, has brightly colored hair, pale skin and a doe-eyed stare that could be mistaken for an actual cartoon — it looks as if she's walked straight off the television screen (of a "Sailor Moon" episode, obvi). The online sensation has managed to carve out an internet niche for herself, filling a void for anime lovers who want to turn themselves into living, breathing Japanese cartoon characters like Shpagina. And, surprisingly, it looks like that was a pretty big void — her Facebook fan page has almost 12,000 likes and her "Flower Fairy" tutorial video has over half a million views on YouTube…".* Ana Kasparian, Cenk Uygur, and Irina Nichita break it down on The Young Turks.
