Real-life Anime Girl: Anastasiya Shpagina’s Bizarre Make-up Tutorial

Still deciding on this year's Halloween costume? Check out this flower fairy makeup tutorial by Anastasiya Shpagina (a.k.a Fukkacumi), from Ukraine. The 19-year-old hair stylist uses extreme makeup techniques and costumes to transform herself into a real-life anime character. "I'm not a like a doll, a doll is like me," she writes on her vk.com (a European version of Facebook) page.

It takes Shpagina about an hour to achieve her doe-eyed look—don't worry, the video is only six minutes long. Photographs on her Facebook fan page show a dangerously waifish young woman with deep crimson hair. She says she would like to one day have surgery to reshape her eyes and nip in her waist even more drastically. Shpagina is reported to weigh only about 90 pounds. Her VK page is posted with images that inspire her such as dragonflies, flowers, butterflies, tiny deer, and other woodland creatures, but her true muse is Valerie Lukyanova, the 21-year-old who sparked controversy in the spring by using plastic surgery and photo retouching to become a real-life Barbie.

Both young women live in Odessa, and according to images posted on VK, they appear to be close friends. Lukyanova claims to be the most famous woman on the Russian Internet, but Shpagina may have overtaken her. More than 800,000 people have viewed her YouTube Flower Fairy Tutorial.
